OK I'm slow. I realize this thing does not use ‘ink’ so just how much does a cartridge of (?) for the printer cost? How much can you get out of it before you need a refill? (so to speak)
Is this even financially viable? Print your own what ever for $1000? or just buy one already made for $100?

This can't be cheap to run....

Sorry, I do not have a link, but I recall that prices for the material varies per the technology used.

I recall that the price of a printed magazine would be around $10.

There's a lot of work being done on using recyclable plastic in these things. How 'bout them apples? Take a few two-liter coke bottles, and you got yerself a magazine for essentially nothing!
