Im interested in signing up for this... but what on earth is a zine?

solarts 04/19/2010 #

A zine is a handmade magazine of any size. Made from all sorts of paper where people add their craft ideas, to drawings, mind games like crossword puzzles, sudduko, poetry, journalling, short stories, etc. Zines come in all different sizes from very small to large. Some people who create them give them away for free or for very cheap price. Some zine creators use black and white for the whole entire zine or in colors. Zines can be very short to 4 pages long or up to 15 pages or more. I have bought one that had only two pages long. Check out this web site on zines. http://wemakezines.ning.com/ and on the etsy web site you can buy one. I hope that helps.

Could we have some more time between the signup/drop date and the send date? The current setup really only gives us one day to check our partners' profiles and send. I'd prefer to have a little more time, like maybe a week between sigunp/drop date and send date.

OK, 2 zines per partner....so I am sending out 4 zines?

Sorry I have to drop from this swap due to too much work to do.

What do you suggest for minimum page size / minimum number of pages? I tend to make mini-zines (ATC sized or slightly larger), but I wouldn't want to disappoint people who are expecting something larger. What is everyone expecting? If mini zines are okay - I could send more than 2 to make up the size difference.

I'd like to know about the size, too. I have only made mini-zines up to this point, but I would like to have a go at a larger zine for this swap. Should there be a minimum size or page number?

AndrewLips 06/ 3/2010 #

any size. at least 8 pages to a zine. the more the better!

kawaiicupcakes 06/12/2010 #

do the zines have to made by you, or can they be from your collection of other people's?

AndrewLips 06/16/2010 #

anyone's zines!
