How to Make A Zine: Introduction

For those of you who don't know, i've been making zines for about half the time that I've been reading them.  The concept of zines and zine making was so fascinating to me way back in 2011, but I had no idea where to start.


A couple of years later I made my first foray into Perzines (or personal zines) and I've never looked back.  It's a wonderful way to put yourself out there and express your thoughts.

As a special project, I'm going to document my next zine from start to finish on the blog.  I get a lot of questions on etsy, tumblr, and in real life about the topic and so I thought it would be fun to share my creative process for others to learn.


Any questions?  Please feel free to ask anything in the comments and I will address it in the next post. I'm not an expert, but no one is.  It's all about being creative and expressing yourself. :)

Take care,
