In my experience, the single most expensive bit about the flyers is 
distribution. Printing 10k flyers costs ~ EUR 130 or so here in Germany 
(so, 1.3 cent per piece), but re-packaging them into easily shippable 
cartons of 100 or 200pcs and mailing them to individual mappers or local 
groups costs ~ 1.8 cent per piece on average, not counting time spent.

I had tried to find someone in the US to distribute the English flyer; I 
had someone willing to sponsor the cost of printing but nobody I spoke 
to felt able to actually handle distribution.
