We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

After half a lifetime of talking about it and dozens of unfinished projects, I have finally published my first zine!!

It's called ReStyle and it chronicles my adventures with my friends at Goodwill, Salvation Army, and other various secondhand stores. It focuses on fashion, kind of a how-to guide for looking fabulous for really cheap.

I'm hoping to generate some interest in it... Anyone have any good tips for marketing? I already plan to send a copy to Zine World, and I have it posted on my Etsy sire (junkstop.etsy.com).

Thanks so much!

I have the same problems with marketing, so I can't give any advice on that front... just wanted to know if you'd be interested in a trade. Go to my Etsy site to see what I have to offer.
You could also check out Xerography Debt. I am not sure what they are up to these days. I think they have gone from primarily paper based to primarily web based, but you could probably find out by doing a web search. I'm not great with marketing either...but I'd also be interested in trading or in buying a copy of your zine. I'm going to check out your profile now.
oohoo! greeting from Brazil to you! it´s always good hear about a new zine^^ when the zine became one year old, sendto us a piece of the cake! hehe
well, here you can have tons of contacts and ways to marketing your zine. good luck!
your zine sounds awesome! my zine team recently published our first issue too! just wondering if you'd be intrested in a trade? our site: slumgullion.etsy.com (emotions for gummies)

www.xerographydebt.blogspot.com is the link for XD. For a while it was primarily web based, but there'll be a new paper issue coming this spring distributed by Microcosm. So it's definitely worth sending them (or us since I review for the zine, but saying "us" sort of implies an ownership which I do not have. Though saying "them" kind of implies that I'm an impartial observer and since I've been posting reviews on the blog and have had my reviews featured in 22 of the 24 issues I'm clearly not impartial. So i really have no idea what my point here is..) a copy. I would tell you to just send me a copy directly but fashion is one topic I neither know nor care about so it might not be a good idea to have me review it.
Thanks muchly, I will send a copy off to them for sure!!!
