hi, Team Zine!
when shipping zines to Etsy customers, i like to use a variety of recycled materials for packaging them up (and i've noticed that others do too!) i thought it might be a good idea to start a discussion about where to get such materials.
i like to raid the recycling bins everywhere on my college campus, but especially at the post office! people open their mail and immediately discard the packaging. so i get a lot of great envelopes, bubble mailers, etc.
i've seen others use pages from old books, taped together at the edges, to form perfect zine-sized envelopes. and i just recently started using the stiff cardboard from cereal boxes as zine mailers.
i look forward to hearing more creative solutions!
