You will have 2 partners and put together a stuffed A5 (5.8 x 8.3) package of zine supplies and resources each for them.
Can include but is not limited to:
Interesting pictures, pages from old books, ephemera, photographs, vintage ads, old magazines, papers (origami, decorative / strange patterns etc), travel pamphlets, stickers, glue (sticks, cement, dots etc), tape (deco, masking etc), staples (ordinary, coloured), paper clips (different shapes / colours etc), string, thin ribbon for binding pages together, pens in different tip sizes, markers, sharpies, rub-on letters, letter stickers, letter stencils, rubber stamps, ink pads, flyers (for distros, zine fairs etc), self-adhesive labels, cello bags, instructions on how to make things that other zinesters would find useful (e.g. rubber stamps, different ways to put zines together, different printing techniques, homemade paper), collection of different zine ideas, and last but not least; your own zines or zines by others that you like others to enjoy,
Basically anything that would help a person in the process of making, copying and distributing their own zine.
Minimum spending limit is £2.50 per package (before postage) sending stuff you have made / found / recycled, or already have in your possession but don't want- is encouraged.
Make it something you would like to receive yourself, try to include a good mix of items.. the aim is to give people new ideas so its senders choice, but please check profiles for likes and zine interests for those hearts and ALSO please check their dislikes so you don't offend.
So just to repeat- sending 2 packages of zine supplies, one to each of your two partners. (Meaning you should also receive 2 packages back).
Newbies are welcome (with well filled out profiles), minimum rating of 4.8, no-one with unexplained 1's or 3's, and you have to have been on swap-bot at least 1 week before swap starts.
Any questions or issues feel free to message me.
