a place for zinesters - writers and readers
I have just acquired a cigarette vending machine to re-purpuse as a zine machine!!!!
has anyone seen a cigarette zine machine in person??
trying to figure out how to package the zines to fit, etc
rubberband them to size? paperclip them? put them in some cardboard??
also once i figure out the logistics, will be taking submissions!! more info coming!!
please any information on how to vend them is appreciated!!
I don't know about the technical questions, but I want to drop by to say I LOVE THE ZINE MACHINE! Please let me know how I can get mine in there. Good luck figuring out how to put it all together. :)
The IPRC in Portland is re-purposing a cigarette machine too.
How they are doing it is they are having people make a cigarette box out of folded paper and the zines will have to fit inside.
The ringed snack vending probably work for large standard 8.5 x 11 half fold zines.
I made a zine for the IPRC zine machine and used their specs. You can see images here: https://www.etsy.com/transaction/104989833?
My next zine will be a cigarette machine Zine.
I Love, Love, Love the Idea of Zine Vending machines.
If I ever come into a vending machine for like free or next to free, I will create one.
Zine-machine, a great idea
There is one at the IPRC but I get annoyed when I look at it because it spells zine as 'zines
THERE IS NO APOSTROPHE!
Great idea! I'm shakin' it if I don't have any change. Sorry, old habits die hard!
The Canberra Zine Emporium in Canberra, Australia has just launched a zine vending machine. Maybe also get in touch with The Geelong Arts Alliance here in Victoria who were operating one about ten years ago. Luke/Sticky.
