Daft ideas

I've had a bit of a daft idea. You know that it's international zine month, next month? Well, I had the idea of making a minizine (that is, one A4 page folded into 8) for each day. I don't know if I'll manage it, but I'll try to do at least enough for half of the month. If I do any more I'll be so chuffed with my little self!


Of course I'll be up for trades for them at the end of the month, along with my 24 hour zine. In the meantime, Estrones 2 is all done and ready to go!…

Tattooed Memoirs #7



Tattooed Memoirs #7

$1/ 24 pages/Quarter size

by Sage




My intro describes the ridiculous self-censorship that I put myself through while writing this issue. Thankfully, I was able to work

through it. Issue 7 of Tattooed Memoirs is about my deep love for

tattoos and working in the tattoo industry, but the bitterness I feel

now. It’s a peek into my life while working in…

I am back in the USA and have a new address. I also have some new ideas of the artsy-fartsy variety. Hopefully, I can get my studio set up and the, bam, ART!

Sad times

Everything is on hold. My beloved Dog Penny had to be put down. I'm gutted understandably. I've had her since I was 15 :(

[image]

On top of that my uncle has gone into a hospice work is crazy so don't expect me to be around for a while.

Once issue 2 - "Am I Loud Enough" is printed I'll be up for trades.

Take care all

Syndicated Zine Reviews Blogspot & Etsy: Comments and Questions

I got back from the University library a little while ago where I did one of my occasional web document printings. One was of Syndicated Zine Reviews Blogspot, 2009 and 2010 so far. I was pleased I was able to do this. In the past, when I'd tried, the print preview always came up blank, which made me assume it wouldn't work, but I realize now you just have to wait a little while for the pages to come up.

2009 was 19 pages (sides not sheets). The library charged 3.6 per…

I've cracked it!

I can';t believe it's taken me so long, but then I was never very good at layout or anything vaguely to do with maths, shapes and all that kind of thing. But I've finally worked out how to lay out a minizine using Microsoft Publisher. All I did was create a table, with 4 columns and 2 rows, then put text boxes into each cell. Once I'd filled up a cell on the top half of the table (in landscape of course), I rotated the text box.


And that's it! It's so simple. I spent a long…

Telegram Ma'am issue 21!

Available in my Etsy shop: http://schoolformaps.etsy.com



Spring is here! Intoxicated with the sunshine and flowers, I banged out issue 21 of Telegram Ma'am on two of my favourite typewriters within about a week or so. This issue is fairly different than more recent issues of my zine; there is less focus on mental health (though I do include a short list of things that have been good for my…
