Description:

This swap is for zine lovers and collectors!

The aim of this zine is to make two different zines to send to your three partners. In total, you will be receiving six zines and sending six zines in total.

Zine ideas (not limited to these) - About me ( this can be for those who would like to find new people to write to) - A week in my life - Poetry/poem - Music Playlist or lyrics - Quotes - Share a memory - How to do....(explain how to do something that you're passionate about)

MUST DO'S:

Your zine must have - 1 Cover page - 1 Back cover - 8 pages minimum inside that is used double-sided. - NO SMALLER than 7cm by 10.cm (2.7 inches by 4.1 inches)

BACK COVER This is where you can add your swap-bot name, Instagram account or any social media so you can be tagged in photos or mail openings if they get shared.

YOU ARE ALLOWED TO ADD A NOTE TO NOT SHARE YOUR ZINE PUBLICALLY IF YOU WOULD LIKE. Please put this on the envelope.

Each swap participant has to have a minimum rating of 4.5 to participate.

Youtube Videos I recommend:

NOTE: The first two videos are for the mini-zines. Also, the size of them is going to be 4" x 2.625" if you cut off the borders, WHICH IS OKAY!

QUESTIONS THAT HAVE BEEN ASKED:

Q: these are not the mini-zines you fold from one page of the paper? Or could I make that, and then include a fold-out that makes it 8 interior pages? A: Yes, it is perfectly fine to do that.

Do you mean 8 pages including the cover and back?

EccentricNincompoop 05/25/2019 #

@artstamper no, front cover, eight pages, back cover. Or 10 pages including the cover and back.

But if you fold the zine like shown in the first two youtube videos, there are only eight pages including the front cover and back cover?

PeliKat 05/27/2019 #

@Catida I was confused too, but I think if you just cut a separate sheet to the correct size of your open zine, and then crease it in the middle, you will have a 'front cover' and a 'back cover' when you attach it to your one-sheet of inside pages. It is different from how I've normally done zines, but I think it will work.

@PeliKat and the rest - yeah, I received one, and it was like, oh, duh. She had made all the folded one-sheet pages inside pages, and then included a cardstockier cover the size of one spread, folded around it and stapled. Very good idea, and I really like it and am thinking of making more zines like that. Well, at least once a month I'll make two!

I don't know if anyone will see this but I'm willing to swap the zines I made with anyone interested. Just drop me a message with your address and I'll send them to you.
