"Sorry I wrote that without actually following the thread. My zines were all low-fi black-n-white sketches so no need for specific high quality print. They explain the machines they use on the website so you can look into it that way. "

"They brought a machine to the london zine symposium to print up the zines on the day- the prints are nice, crisper than a photocopy, with smooth tones, not the photocopier banding."

"ive generally had pretty good results with photos etc, as long as theres good contrast in your flats (original) then you'll be fine. im sure you could ask them to just print one copy and then you/they can adjust it if need be."
