zine (pron.: /ˈziːn/ zeen; an abbreviation of fanzine, or magazine) is most commonly a small circulation self-published work of original and/or appropriated texts and images usually reproduced via photocopier.

An easy swap for zine lovers the world over and a great opportunity to discover a new zine!

  • You will have ONE partner to whom you will send ONE zine
  • It can be a perzine or another type of zine
  • You can send one that you've made, or one made by someone else that you've enjoyed
  • The zine should be 1/4 or 1/2 sized (half or quarter size of letter or A4 paper) - if you want to send a smaller 'mini zine' then consider sending more than one. You should send something you'd be happy to receive.
  • Colour or B&W is fine
  • Sender's choice as this is all about discovering something new, but do check your partner's profile for specific dislikes

I will check ratings before assigning partners. Newbies and unrated swappers with well filled out profiles are allowed. No recent unexplained 1s or 3s please.

Have fun!

So mini zines are allowed if you send at least two?

@picupurcross Yup! Just use your judgement - I wouldn't want someone to receive just one tiny zine of only a few pages but a couple would be fine :o)

Thanks! :)

What size is the US letter size 8.5x11 inches? A5, A6 or neither

@soyprincesa2 That size sounds fine! The size guide is there just to avoid a tiny, thin mini zine being sent on its own.
