Date to send item by:06/30/07

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): nossir!

oh boy! it's another zine swap! and you are very excited for it. because it's a proven fact that you can never have too many zines. basically each participant will create a zine ( or you can use an already existing zine you've made as long as you havent sent it to another participant already- nobody likes sloppy seconds!) and send it to every other participant in the swap (within reason- if this sucker gets big we'll split it in two groups). so let's pull out the sharpies and start killing trees! there are zines to be made!

I could not ever be a cartoon designer, because I could not draw the same person over and over again, I be bored out of my mind, but I always wanted to do a zine, I might do this or not, have to see, but anyways, say if I did do this, how many pages are usually in a Zine?

that's the best part: zine making has very loose rules. i've recived zines with as little as like, 10 quarter-sized pages and some of my zines have been 40 some pages. it's all up to you and what you want to do. don't let size intimidate you. it's a lot of fun.

you'll be sending one copy of your zine to everyone in the group (or if you have two zines that you would like to send you can do that too). the swap should be relatively small- ten at the max probably if we can even get that many people. and the zine can be whatever the author wants it to be on.

I'd like to join this swap, but with an existing zine - the only problem is that Jessinmacuh has already received it.

I was wondering if it were ok if I joined it and didn't send to Jess, and she didn't send to me (Jessinmacuh, I'm assuming you're sending out the same zine as you did for lisiepeasie's swap?). Of course this question is addressed to both Jess and the organizer. Smiley

Stupid addicting craft swaps... Damn you all,  I'm having to much fun. So excited though! I'm just finishing my zine(s).  Grin What a good excuse not to do exam reviews! "I can't work, I'm self-publishing!" Hmm don't think it'll work...

EDIT: About 2Min's later.... OH MI GOSH! I got my home photocopier to work - let me bask in it's awesome might.

6 so far. As long as peachsorbet is accepted. I can feel my photocopier dying. It can't handle this amount of coping. You evil copier killers!

I wouldn't see why not! Is anyone making new ones or am I the only one? (I don't care, mostly due to the fact that I didn't have anything good made up before + I'm done the new one, must PHOTOCOPY!)

Ok...totally just noticed - honourablemention, you, lisiepeaise and I are in bekahzz's zine swap....so this means that you won't be getting another original zine either (from me and presumably from lisiepeasie) is this cool with you? I'm also fine with just withdrawing seeing as how most zine fiends on Craftster already have received/will receive my zine! Tongue

if you have already swapped your particular zine with someone else who signed up for the swap you have two options:

a) pm that person and check with them to see if it's okay if you don't swap with them (since you've already recieved their zine and then have already recieved yours)

b) make a new zine. if a lot of people are interested in creating a new zine and need more time to do so, i would be willing to push back the send out date. just let me know.

This is going to be so exciting!  I've been working on 3 zine designs over the past month.  Now this is going to make me complete them! yay!

I only bought my first zine last week.  I love it.

just search for zine through google.  there are thousands.  the ones i like are croc and colouring outside the lines (http://www.myspace.com/colouringoutsidethelines).  A basic rundown is a collection of creativeness usually photocopied together and bound.  It can included photos, drawings, sketchings, poems, stories, articles, and contributions from other people.  Usually a zine is 'themed' and either black and white or colour.  Some people hand colour their zines, others leave them as just copies.  When making a zine you should do it for the creative thought and don't aim to earn any profit from it.  It should be about sharing yourself with others.  Believe me the copying costs will eat into your profits!  Most zines are traded or sold around the $5 mark.  You can have anything from 4 pages to a book.  It's completely up to you.  You can also have a zine that isn't a standard book shape.  That is what makes things interesting.
