"Agreed. This original question was part of a larger venture I was trying to solve. I do use ejunkie and sell merch now on my site/blog, plus I use the same service to have a free downloadable mini zine.
I also plan to publish an e-book that I…"
"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…"
"I make the Zine for my group (www.facebook.com/FINDfeminism) and we're using PDF to distribute for FREE internationally. We love trading actual copies via mail and I personally am collecting copies by trade. However, since we're not…"
"oh, and here's my first zine that I created with this template. It's just some poetry quips but I finally got my feet wet! I know some don't like digital versions but it's free and a step further to creating more. I…"
"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…"
"Some Sf fanzine folks use pdf to put exact copies of their paper fanzines online. It makes it easier for overseas people, with postage and all that. They're available at http://www.efanzines.com/ but they tend to be free, not for payment."
"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…"

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)
