a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Aside from zine production, I am experimenting with other forms of art, including snail mail art.
I produced stationary designs and envelopes, but I am now trying to craft postcards.
I was wondering if anyone reading this has any tips and suggestions on how to make postcards. Have you made them before? Are you still making them now? Is there a standard size for postcards? What should appear on the back?
Any help would be appreciated.

Today is the last day of International Zine Month and the last activity is to write a blog on We Make Zines. So here it is.
This month was good. It could have been better really, I wrote all about it on my 24-Hour Zine Thing issue for this year.

But really, this month I…Continue

I was looking forward to it for about six months now. I broke my elbow and had a surgery around late December and have been out of commission for way too long. I felt useless and couldn't engage in any extensive creative endeavors. But I'm better now and I am so excited for this month…Continue

I have a whole load of copies of Fallopian Falafel (my fanzine) just lying around collecting dust, and I think it's a real shame.
I would love to trade them with whoever is interested or sell them to whoever would be willing to buy. I prefer trading because I love reading other people's zines. If you could pack my mailbox until it bursts, that would be ideal.
Fallopian Falafel is based in Jerusalem but it targets all audiences around the world who are into the…
