Whether you are new to zines or a pro, this is a swap to share your unique mini-zine and also send each other your comments. (Keep in mind ratings are only for the finished product, not necessarily for quality or craftsmanship!) This is a great way to start out if you are new to this or help each other with ideas and tips.

In this swap you will create a mini-zine (1 page folded into 8 mini-pages) and send to 5 partners. Can be color or black-and-white, pics or text, whatever you like! Format is also your choice - make it unique to you!! Journal style, mini-articles, photos, recipes, news, opinions, absolutely anything goes!! Newbies are welcome, we all had to start somewhere!! Just no flakers please. I will angel if needed but it shouldn't even be an issue right?? O:)

Here is a template for the mini-zine: http://www.knowledgeup.com/2007/11/05/diy-mini-8-page-pocket-zine/ (or you can use your own format if you like! hand made, printed, copied, whatever!)

Link to the video how-to

Here is a picture of the template and page locations, so you can set up the text in Photoshop or GIMP or other image manipulating software to print then fold and cut.

If you want to make your 'zine ATC sized, make the paper 7" x 10" and it will come out correctly sized.

How do I know who to send it to?

matkbel7 08/16/2009 #

Is there anyway to see one? I'm not sure what to put in it to even see if I could do it. It sounds fun! Can anyone let me know? I tried to contact the contact person, but it doen't let me send anything to them. =(
