What do you do differently for second print runs (or third, etc) of your
I'm gearing up to do a second print run of my first zine, Mannequin Reject #1, and wondering this:
Would it be wrong to edit out things that are dated, like reviews of distros which have closed? It's been 5 years since the original print run and I'm thinking of removing the reviews section entirely because future zines won't have it and it would save me some cents on printing. (It's a 36 page zine and reviews take up about 6 or 8 pages). There's also reviews of zines by ex-zinesters. The reviews are crappy, hand-written last-minute thoughts and I don't think they add any real value to the zine.
My second print run is going to be smaller, my first run was 50 and this one may be like 15 so I can keep my Etsy store stocked. (It's not stocked right now because I'm down to 4 copies).
Also, I'm gearing up to release my second zine, which will have a smaller print run than the first. (Not so many people are getting free copies this time, and this zine isn't debuting at a zine fest like the first one did, either.)
