We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers


Let's Trade Zines!

This is a group designed specifically for trading your zine for someone elses. Post a decription of your zine or contact some people in the group directly!

Members: 675
Latest Activity: on Friday

I realised there wasn't a group on WMZ specific to zine trades so I wanted to get something in place so that people can pool together their interest in trading.

Thanks for making this the biggest group on We Make Zines!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Everyone seems to post a new thread in the forum when they want to share their zines but why not just come to one group where you know people are going to be receptive when you want to share with them!

I have a new mini zine for trade:

-My newest mini zine called 'Always'. Kind of a mix between perzine and fanzine about the Harry Potter series. Quote, How, When?, (badly drawn) fanart, (bad) slash fanfiction and random. 10 pages + cover. Stapled.

See a picture of the mini zine under photos on my profile.

Pieces #6: On Commuting
Perzine 1/4 size : 86 pages

Filled with photos and stories about my first month commuting to Chicago via the South Shore electric line, this zine picks up where Pieces #5 left off in terms of change, and touches on human isolation, connectivity, and transient strangers.


Available for $3 or even trade. Even trades don't have to be zines. They can also be handwritten or typewritten letters, tea, handmade cards or postcards, stationary, buttons & pins, or other random but interesting odds and ends.

Hey, I'm new here. I'm active with 2 zines that I'm looking to trade. The first is We Live In A Van, which is a 20 page zine that tells the story of touring with my band. Card stock, spray painted cover.

The second is Shouting Shorelines, a collective zine that focuses on the Long Island DIY community. 56 pages, paper bag cover, block print.

Interested in all kinds of zines, get in touch if interested!

Hey, Laura, I'm always looking for something different. If you'd like to trade your zine about Lucid Dreams for my Ken Chronicles, let me know.

Hello everyone!I just got done with issue three of my zine, "Impossibles". Do any of you know any ultra-conservative Christian people with kids? This is my story of growing up in that culture, discovering feminism and punk, and growing up. 36 pages of entertainment/ cringing for absolutely free. Send me a comment if you are interested. ^_^

Heey I'm into pretty much all ziness. Anyway, I just finished yesterday my latest zine (staircase wit #4) a how to guide on Lucid Dreaming (16 pages , quarter size). Made some copies today neon green and cream colored.... If you're interested message me plus I have photos up of my older volumes and they're up for trades as well. Cheers ;)

I love perzines and travel zines, by the way, but anything really. The zines are the ones about things you know nothing about...

I am zine rich, cash poor. Who would like to trade with me???

My zine is all about being a string player who is sick of being forced to play classical music, and who wants a more experimental, noisy, punk future!

It has perzine, music zine and how-to/DIY zine elements.
ISSUE FOUR includes:
*an interview with Raincoats violinist, Vicki Aspinall
*a guide to string playing in Krautrock
*the amazing Krautrock Krautmap
*an appreciation of violists*punk versus folk: which four letter word will win? A look at the similarities between the genres
*how to make your playing sound grubby and super-scuzzy

Zines 1, consumerism 0!

my new perzine, reimagining queer community, is finished!

reimagining queer community is a personal investigation into my evolving relationship to queerness, as well as some of the ways in which i navigate queer spaces around me. some of the topics in this zine include: alienation and estrangement from the queer community, what it means to feel connected, the myth of a cohesive queer community, being a spectator versus being a participant, (personal and shared) queer histories, and potential strategies to build new alliances.  

this was my first attempt at making a twenty four hour zine (it wound up taking three days due to work/life interruptions, but who’s counting?) it is 20 pages, 1/4 sized and text heavy. i am asking for $1 or a trade. if you are interested, please email uniunverse@gmail.com.

Just found out about this feature; wish I had been more active on We Make Zines so I would have found it sooner. I produce the Ken Chronicles, a perzine featuring mostly non-fiction, real-life experiences, travels, anecdotes, opinion, music reviews (1960s to current), book and zine reviews, etc., although not every issue has everything.  Looking to trade with like-minded zinesters (one to start & no hard feelings if we don't trade again). Mine is digest-size, 20 to 28 pages (depending on how the spirit moves me and how much material I see fit to include), copy-machined with (usually) a full-color centerfold (via ink-jet). I'm not really interested in zines that are heavily dependent on politics or religion, have nothing against gays/lesbians but not into gay zines; okay with sex but can do without excessive violence. I have some back issues available & #20 (August) out soon; $2 each (USA & Canada) but I'd really rather trade. Foreign exchange considered. (Will be away next week so please don't take it personal if I don't respond  right away.)
