What makes a zine?
A zine is something that an individual or a group of people can make on their own and disseminate to spread ideas in a way that does not require much capital or technical skills. Histories, plans, words, art, feelings, photos, and/or information that is not often represented in the book store or in the newspapers can be shared through zines. A copy machine/printer, a fold, and two staples is all you really need to get started. Whether your catalogue is established or this is your first publication, we welcome you with open shelves.
For anyone who wishes to participate but has questions about printing and assembling their zine please email us. We will do our best to help.
