a place for zinesters - writers and readers
I'm going to the San Francisco Zine Fest--my first--and I'm wondering how many copies of each issue people usually bring. I have three issues to trade/sell ($3), and I was thinking 30 copies of each.
What do you think? Thanks.
I believe I brought 20 copies per day for the SFZF last year (so 40 copies total), but only for my most recent issue. I didn't sell them all, but it was nice to have enough that I could trade as much as I wanted to. It would have been a bummer to run out in the middle of the fest! For my back issues I believe I brought 15-20 copies of each title (total), figuring that people might already have them. But I only had 3 issues out at that time, so it was quite manageable :)
Deciding how many copies to bring is such a challenge!
