New!(sletter for September)

Hello all! And a warm welcome to the many new folks who signed up at last week's Portland Zine Symposium, a blast that cleaned us out and filled us up. Many new things, many things we need to restock. I've been a bit obsessed with helping orchestrate/conceptualize a tour, so my mind has been in the clouds and I've been catching up on distro-related things very slowly. Despite my slowness, this month is still one of the best months ever. Especially if you want to do some reading. It runs the… Continue

Almost Gone! (part two)

The Portland Zine Symposium cleaned us out! So, while we rush to get things back in stock and add all the new acquisitions, we thought we'd give another little list of things that are down to the last copy and might not be back in again for a while (or, in some cases, ever).

Eaves of Ass #7 (Zine) ($3)- as he works on an epic piece on Juggalos, it doesn't seem like printing anymore zines will be in the cards for a… Continue

Truckface!

Very suddenly LB's Truckface has become one of my favorite zines. And now we carry them! Hoorah!

Truckface #10- This is what got me hooked on the goodness that is Truckface. There was a copy of it in the car on tour last spring and it got passed around until we'd all read it and were making jokes about "the most famous leaf of all," cracking…

Newsletter for August

Hello and welcome to August. I hope you all had as exciting and adventurous of a July as I did. It was great. But, goal for this month: hang out in

Olympia. I haven't been around that much and it's a bit of a shame since this is such a good place to be in the summer. So, other than

going to the Portland Zine Symposium (August 28th & 29th, see you

there?), I think I'm going to hold somewhat strong to this goal. Here at the distro, there are many goodnesses- music that spans… Continue

Newsletter for July!

So, it took a while, but summer has finally come to the northwest. A week ago I was wearing three layers of sweaters and now I'm wearing short shorts. It's pretty good. A couple things- one, bestsellers. The list I made at the end of last year seemed to be a total hit (everybody love lists), so I made one for the first half of this year. I also made a whole pile of new bookmark/flyers (four different… Continue

New Zines Up!

A few new ones up...

Loose Lips Sink Ships (Zine) ($2)- In Loose Lips, Ms May delves into the dangerous territory of the make-out zine; a genre that gets a lot of flack, yes, (and usually rightfully so), but this, like all her zines, is done really well and focused in a way that changes it into something else entirely. A short description for each… Continue

Almost Gone!

Just sold out of a couple things and it just made me realize how many things are almost gone! So I made a list. Most of these are down to their last 1 or 2 copies and are going to be out of print when they're gone. The rest I'm just very unsure how long it will take to get them back in. So, it's yr last chance for most of these! We'll be taking them off as they sell out, so if the links don't work, that's why.…

Etsy Page

So, about a month ago we started an Etsy page and we've been slowly adding more and more to it. While it represents less than half our stock, it does seem a little more focused towards to the interest of our fellow zinesters and has a bettter shipping scale than our website, especially for international orders. We're setting up a new website, which will have a better shopping cart, but until then, I might point you folks who want to… Continue
