Hi! My name is Billy! I'm a queer non-binary illustrator and writer from Montreal, Canada. You can find in this shop zines I produce under my small press called Femme Crimes Distro, and other materials I selected from queer and feminist artists I like ! What you will find here is 100% DIY and I hope you will enjoy it. It's not commercial material and the zines are handmade. Please take that in consideration before expecting something you would find at a traditional bookstore! You'll find here a vast array of illustrated zines and comics that are built from personal experience. Please don't leave a bad review because you don't like someone's handwritting, this is what these zines are about: personal touch !
I ship as soon as I can, generally it can take up to a week. However, you need to take notes that I work full time and travel for work.I also deal with chronic pain and it is hard sometimes for me to go to the post office more than once or twice a week. I take every order seriously but sometimes I am slow, both to answer and to ship. Don't think I am ignoring you or being unprofessional. I have a lot going on. You can also ask me questions at any point. I run this shop alone and take your concern seriously.

I ship from Montreal, Canada. My Post office is open from Monday to Friday. The delay within canada is generally from two days to a week. For the united states, from one week to a month, and overseas it can take up to six weeks.
I don't know, but please let me know!

It happened a few times that the parcels are sent back to my Po Box. If this ever happen, I will contact you to check what happened and verify the address, then I'll re-mail it again. If you think your order was lost, please get in touch with me I will be happy to assist you!
