Growing Good News circulation, lower shipping costs and faster delivery times were factors involved in a recent decision to begin printing Good News magazines for Southern Africa in that region. Beginning with the May/June 2007 issue, Good News magazines for locations in South Africa, Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe will be printed at CTP Book Printers in Cape Town, South Africa. Considering various factors, we may later consider adding other destinations on the continent of Africa to the current list of those handled from this location.
The print order quantities for the May/June 2007 Good News magazine are as follows: R.R. Donnelley & Sons in Glasgow, Kentucky, 395,594; Offset Alpine Printers in Eagle Farm, Queensland, Australia, 52,000 copies; and CTP Book Printers in Cape Town, South Africa, 16,980 copies. This equals a total print quantity of 464,574. The total print quantity for the previous issue (March/April 2007) was 433,207.
