Nervous about snail mail during COVID-19 quarantine? Still want to stay creative, make things and share them? Try zine-making and then send them to your partners electronically.

Photo of pocket zines:

Turn one page folded into an 8-page pocket zine.

Any theme/topic, whatever inspires you.

If you have never made a zine, check these links for instructions:

My Powerpoint zine template. Feel free to use it if you'd like to make your zine digitally. It can be used in Google Slides if you don't have Powerpoint.


The back page should have your swap-bot name. Most people also include the swap title.

Make your zine, scan it, email it.

You may need to set your scanner device DPI setting (dots per inch) to 600 dpi to get a sharper image.

When you receive other member's zines, you can print and construct their zine and add to your collection.

The number of swap partners will be equal to the number who sign up, that way everyone gets to see all of the zines. I can provide an email list if the participants exceed 4. For a quick copy-n-paste the bcc (blind carbon copy) email field.

I will private swap with unrated newbies and members under 4.99 who are in good standing. Private message me or leave a comment on my profile.

I check that all zines have been rated. I expect everyone to email their zine by the 'last day to send your items' date. When all is sent and rated I will add a 'finished' stamp and a photo of the zines to the discussion section.

Waiting from one more zine. Our partner is having technical difficulties with her email.

The swap hasn't been completed. Holly hasn't been able to overcome some technical difficulties with her email. So it was me and Muse. I'll update the photo if the 3rd zine arrives.
