Cough. started as an art and hardcore zine in 2004 and has now evolved into a DIY guide out of the Bay Area. You can grab a copy of the newest issue here!: www.cough.etsy.com

I am also doing a split zine with Jethro from Threat n Ink about running into celebrities, we need stories too! If you have a story, please send it on over!

Any locals going to SF Zine Fest in September this year?

Posted on May 20, 2015 at 10:15am 2 Comments

If you are local and you're planning on attending the SF Zine Fest in September this year, please let me know! I'll be out of town the weekend of zine fest and I have a small box of my zines that I would like to set on the free table. I'd like to give these zines to someone who's attending and in return, I can give you a gift card to Philz coffee or something :) Hit me up!

FREE Zine Grab Bags!

Posted on May 13, 2015 at 7:58pm 3 Comments

I need to make space in my apartment and I have a bag of zines that I'm looking to pass on to the next person. If you'd like a free zine grab bag, please send me your mailing address (US resident only, sorry!). 

Thank you!


Leftover copies of your zines?

Posted on April 20, 2015 at 10:53am 0 Comments

Hi everyone, 

I started my zine back in 2005 and have several issues left over. I have slowly been donating them to zine libraries and other zinesters but it's starting to get expensive with all the shipping costs. Anyone out there have a bunch of old copies of their zines? If so, what did you do with all of them? I wish I could leave them on a table at the SF zine fest, but I'll be out of town that weekend!

I loved this book to death when I was making zines and I think it's time to pass it on to someone else. If you're interested just message me or reply to this post! First one to reach out gets the book :) 

Zine Grab Bag- free!

I just recently discovered ANOTHER drawer full of zines that I unfortunately cannot hold onto anymore. If you'd like an envelope full of a variety of zines, please message me! I would prefer if you were in the US so shipping isn't so expensive for me... :/

Tina! Thank you so much for the excellent grab bag you sent! I was really amazed at the selection, including the badass Cough! I had a great time reading the zines you sent--plus, now I know how to make a prison tattoo gun. Oh--and your piece on piercing guns was really educational. Thanks again!

Hi Tina, thanks for getting back to me! I'm so glad you still have some grab bags left. :) Thanks for sending me one. I hope everything is going well for you. My address is still:

Hi Tina, I just sent you a friend request. Anybody who gives out zine grab bags is a cool person in my book. :) I saw you gave away a couple, but if you have any more, I'd love to have one. I will send you some copies of my humor zine, Shards of Glass in Your Eye!, in return. I know you're downsizing, so feel free to leave them at a bus stop or whatever when you're done with them.

If you have any grab bags left or just want to trade, my address is:

Cool. I'm so sorry it didn't work out. I just didn't anticipate how much effort having a job would be after 10+ years as a full time mom.

Send me you address, and I'll mail you a copy of the full block printing zine in trade for you DIY zine and you can decide if you want to use any of the material for your next zine.

Hi Tina;
I was just coming here to message you. I'm in Canada so if i mailed the article to you, you wouldn't get it in time (our mail is often up to two weeks.) If you don't mind waiting, I can mail it today, or as soon as I get your address. I"ll "friend" you so you can send it privately if you don't want to post it. Alternatively, I could scan and email you a pdf if that would work. If not, then I'm really sorry especially if I've held this up for you.

Hi Tina, I should have some time to get something together for you. I was looking at what I have. It is in a zine, but I might have to rework it a bit so that it would work outside the context of the whole zine. I should have it done in a few days.

Hi, thanks for the prompt. I haven't been online much lately. IRL taking over. When do you need the submissions by? I won't have time to even think about anything else until after the end of June. If you can wait until July-August, I think I could get something together.

Let me know okay,
