"I think there is room for pdf or ezines and paper zines. I don't know if I would pay for a pdf zine, but I did pay a dollar or two for a kindle comic zine and I was happy with the deal. Besides a person can always print the pdf if they…"
"Just a few comments on the site, which I went to and clicked around on. I printed out the whole thing.
I tried to view e-APA, but apparently it's password protected. I don't really want to join, so I don't really want to go through…"
"A few minutes after I posted my last comment, I was able to download and print out a 1994 issue of Outback, double-sided. It was pretty easy and it came out double-sided. But this was standard-sized. Maybe I'll play around with it a little more…"
"I don't think e-zines "are the devil". In fact I'm trying to investigate them, but haven't had much success, as I've run into technical snags. I've printed out and read Zine Thug and Zine Dump without any trouble.…"
"I think this is arguable but I know what you're saying. I think I tend to think of online content as static + letters of comment. Or something.
None of which, of course, helps out with the original question. Sorry, fLee!"
"My zines are only distributed via PDF format- mostly because it's a quicker, easier, cheaper option for me.
You could try going through Lulu- I've known a lot of people who sell comics and books in .pdf format through there. If you want a…"
"i think the distinction with this is that people who make e-zines sometimes like to call them zines and this really bothers some zinesters (myself included) because they are completely different things.
while i personally would never distribute a…"
"While I prefer having hard copies of things (zines, books, comics, the like) I know lots of people do like electronic versions. I've even had people ask if my zine was available online in PDF format, so I know where you are coming from.
"I greatly prefer paper zines and have zero interest in reading from a PDF but I'm not so sure they're of the devil. It's funny how folks can be so opposed to e-zines while reading blogs and posting on message boards..."
"The vast majority of the people here publish paper zines only. Most of us are highly opposed to having zines on the internet. I can't imagine anyone paying for a PDF of a zine. Then again... people have those Kindle things now... who knows.

How are you?
I saw your post about PDF distribution...it was interesting. I have no real idea on how PDF works but am interested in figuring it out someday. What kind of zines do you make? Are you up for trades? (Adobe doesn't work on my pc so I can't see PDF)
