a place for zinesters - writers and readers
I just use my computer printer then refill the ink cartridges when they run out, I'd be interested in how other people print their zines - I still don't know what a "Xerox" actually is.
that is so cheap.. i use the local library because it is a 5 minute walk from home.. i just printed 20 zines, cost me $16.. kinda pricey.. of course that only makes them 80 cents a zine, but all at once is expensive.. i just checked Staples online, they are 7cents a side, 49cents for colour.. i might go there for the next zine.
"just got back from UPS mail-boxes"
Booo, there is nothing DIY about supporting corporate copy shops. Plus they are almost always more expensive than the indie alternatives.
I start a discussion about this few months ago.
anyways, I found a way to pay only 2c (in euro) per side, but it's only if you pay for a 5 thousands copy card ! (it's not a big deal since we also use it to print some flyers and posters for the few shows we promote.)
I'm lucky- theres a mom and pop shop just a few miles away from me that's just 5 cents a sheet (at least I think it still is.) In the future, I'm going to see if I can get a job at Kinkos. (They just hit nine cents a sheet)
