We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

I'm thinking of writing my first perzine. I was wondering anyone's thoughts on whether they prefer perzines to be neatly handwritten (maybe making it more personnel?) or typed...

BOTH...I also like small sketches :D it makes me feel like am reading a high school note from my sister :D
after ALL THAT i did my 1st issue ALL handwritten...cause it was fun...i thought it was gonna be a pain in the arsenal but no it was....almost....relaxing LOL :D LOVED IT!!

Handwritten!

I'm able to avoid cross outs with wite-out and cutting and pasting new pieces of paper over the errors.

I always write it out first, and then copy it, but of course there's always odd muscle jerk, or the E that looks more like an O... so wite out and cutting and pasting!

 

I love typewritten zines, but not everyone has access to a typewriter. I also like handwritten zines, but I prefer if the handwritten portions are interspersed with typed text as it can become very taxing to read an entire handwritten zine. I am composed my zine as a mix of handwritten, typewriter, and word processor pieces.  

This is where I was able to get the correct typewriter ribbon from. I'm really pleased with the quality:

I don't have access to a printer (except at my local library who charge ridiculous amounts for their print-outs), so all my first issue is going to be hand written/drawn, until june at least, when I plan on getting a printer with birthday funds.

I do love typewritten zines. Where does everyone get their type writer ribbons from? I can't seem to source them for love nor money right now.
