We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

In Stolen Sharpie Revolution 2, Alex Wrekk suggests printing on sticker paper. Once you're ready to lay out your writing, you just peel the backing off the sticker paper and stick it to your page. I just tried it for a page I am making for Jenny Archibald's artist zine, and it TOTALLY WORKED! Not only did it work, it was AWESOME! I didn't have to whip out my (almost empty) glue stick, and now I don't have excess glue on my hands, computer keyboard, and workspace.

I am so pleased! Thank you for the great suggestion, Alex!

yeah it's a great tip - thanks Alex.

had a lot of trouble finding sticker paper / a4 labels (thought I'd found some but turned out to be multi sheets of a6 labels once I got them home), bought one of those Xyron sticker machines instead - you can make anything (as long as it's not too thick/large) adhesive. Only problem is pages come out curled up but you can easily press them flat while the protective sheet & backing are still on.

A lot easier that fighting/fiddling with double sided tape.

Turns out Avery do A4 labels "Product Number: L4735REV-25"

Another top tip / bit of personal zine fail -
if you've printed something out and mean to change the layout / cut and paste
remember to cut them out/up before removing the backing *facepalm*

I got mine at Office Depot. It is Office Depot brand. It is called Laser Full Sheet Labels. The package says, "Same size as Avery 5165." It's 8-1/2 " x 11". The package I have came with 100 sheets. I've heard it called "crack and peel" before. You can probably get it at any office supply store.

Well, I don't see why you couldn't type right onto the sticker paper. The sticker paper I used is 8 1/2 x 11, just like a regular sheet of paper. So you should be able to put it in your typewriter and type away.
