Description:

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. 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 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 nifty template for the mini-zine (not required but an easy way to get started!): http://www.knowledgeup.com/2007/11/05/diy-mini-8-page-pocket-zine/ or check this out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xh1W15BWCUk (or you can use your own format if you like! hand made, printed, copied, whatever!)

Can you make one mini-zine then photocopy it for your partners or do all 5 have to be different?

I am also wondering if we can send the same zine out to five partners (copies). I am VERY new to making these, so I don't have a lot yet. Looking forward to this! ♥

yup, I always make the template on my computer and print several copies!! However you want to do it is fine :) the sky is the limit!

so is the 8-pager out of one sheet of paper standard size for a mini?

Krystal2424 04/ 2/2011 #

I was wondering if you have to make a mini one like on the link? or would a zine that's half the size of a standard piece of paper okay?

You can make it any way you want, most people use one folded page that becomes 8 mini-pages. Anything you like that functions as a 'zine works :)

ive never made a zine before..and I signed up. Im hoping I dont disappoint anyone.

Same goes here. Made and sent but sure had an awful time making it. I can't wait to get the reviews.I really felt artless doing this and had to even have hubby help me make the booklet. Once I got it I felt silly. I couldn't get everything to line up perfect. Help Zoey send me one that I can get the idea right from.....please?
