Learn how to make zines, with this with this printable PDF - now updated in 2019 with new information and resources.

In August 2010 I co-hosted a Zine Workshop with fellow zinemaker Jen Collins in Glasgow. I did a little talk about zines and we all made some mini-zines together afterwards.

I made this little zine as a free handout for attendees and it's now been expanded to include even more information on selling and pricing, plus a peek into my own zine history.

This listing is for a PDF which you can download, print and read! A printed version is also available in my shop.

Printing instructions:
The PDF is designed for A4 paper and the 4 pages should be printed back to back. Then just cut in half widthways along the middle, place the inner sheets inside the cover sheet, fold in half and staple. Hurray, it's a zine.
