Ladybug #1, my 24-hour zine thing: Shipping Log

i think this is the best way to keep track of when & who i send the zines to. if you bought a copy or we arranged a trade, check this post...
everyday that i ship copies of Ladybug #1, i'll list the first name and the state or country they went to. that way you can look here to find out when your order or trade went out.

punks is hippies - the blog!

this website is awesome! it's 'sort of' a zine archive, mostly into punk zines.





they have lots of old zines, back from the 90s and 80s, but they also have some "contemporary" (aka 2000s) zines.



though i'm not that much into punk, it's amazing the work these guys are doing in scanning old zines and making them available online for… Continue

no good news, sorry...

i had one big change in my life happening and it disrupted the whole balance of things. not that the balance was doing very well before that happened but i still had some hope. right now, that little hope is almost gone, and it's hard to find the strength to keep doing the things i liked doing...



this is all a long story, my intention isn't to flood the community with another useless and pointless (since it's got nothing to do with the theme of Zines). i just want to let some people… Continue

looking for NEW zines!!

yep, you heard [read] me right, i'm looking for new zines... so far, most of the zines i got are from the USA, Canada, UK, Australia, and i'm looking for something "different".



i'm mostly interested in zines from Japan (or any other Asian country) and from anywhere in Africa, since most of the things i get to read are with an occidental cultural/social view (ok, Australian zines are from the other side of the world - to an European - but still...). the only problem is they must be… Continue

the bad news is...

just to let you (i mean, anyone who tries to contact me through We Make Zines) that:



i might take a while to answer emails from now on, because tomorrow i'm back to work (my last vacations for this year end tonight snif snif´´´´) and i'll have less time to come to my computer (that sucks, but days only have 24 hours so...). i could try to check my email at work but the next few days i'll probably won't get much free time in there and besides it can be hard to get enough… Continue

video - DIY: How to Make a Zine

i found this cool video on YouTube, by SamProof, were he demonstrates how to make a zine (small format, about 7.5 cm by 10.5 cm, that's about 2"95 by 4"13) without using glue/staples/stitching/etc, just by a special but simple folding process!



see it here:

Zine Trade Tips

following my last post, on SamProof's video tutorial, he talks about zine trading and he has had a great idea i feel i must share you (even) more people!



according to his own words, if you would like to have a copy of the zine but are short or out of money, you can send a drawing with a self-addressed stamped envelope and you will receive a copy of the zine back! also, your drawing might appear on the next issue of the zine!



i think this is a very good idea! usually, zine… Continue

first impressions on the We Make Zines community

well, i've spent the last hours browsing trough WMZ, searching for groups & blog/forum posts about stuff i'm interested in, updating my page, etc etc. i've already done some shopping thanks to some members i found! (that's because i'm addicted to shopping - online - for zines!)



i've started by adding 1 friend and joining a few groups and by now i've got 3 friends, and i'm starting to exchange nice messages with interesting and friendly people.
