A recent 5% hike in postal rates prompted us to look at NGDU’s cost structure, and we were surprised that the subscription and cover price hadn’t been adjusted since 2012. Since then, we’ve absorbed more than 50% growth in postage costs, and increases to printing.
Clearly, this isn’t sustainable. To ensure we keep the quality of NGDU high, from 1 July the cover price must increase to $15.95. Subscription & renewal rates will also be adjusted. We’re reluctant to make the change, but no product is viable without reflecting the realities of the cost to produce it!
We’re committed to keeping NGDU as a premier specialist narrow gauge publication. We hope that you’ll continue along the ride with us…
