Probably the cost involved.
Take a stroll to your local print shop and enquire how much it will cost to produce 1000 copies of an A4 sized, ten page document, in black and white.
Then start multiplying those figures up into tens of thousands or even more, add in distribution, warehousing &c.
Now you see why the WWW is such an attractive option for publishing, basically sero overheads (relatively speaking).

Yeah i am talking about big big companies though, not your average mom & pop store

If they're successful on the web, maybe they don't see any reason to spread to an offline magazine; high overhead hits big operators, too, so there'd have to be something in it for them.

I'm very curious to this regards (not to steal the thread). I have something i'd like to take "offline", and have about a 10 page paper - black and white - bound with staples (like a simple report).
Can someone give me an approx cost i would be looking at?
I'm talking about 10,000 units....

Andrew - Check with a few printing companies for an estimate. Try a variety (small, local, big, online) to see what your choices are as far as price and service.
