Bumping in case anyone checks this thread. I made a zine if anyone is down to trade.

I finished up my first photo zine not too long ago. Its 24 pages + cover, 5.5x8.5", full bleed, laser printed, hand cut and stapled, all that great stuff. Edition of 10. If anyone is interested in one, I'd be down to trade for zines, prints, drawings, or anything else you guys make. I have a few left, so if you're interested pm me your address and I'll drop one in the mail for you.

How do you guys get the layout for your zines?
is it something done in photoshop/illustrator?

I have no idea how to use either of those things, I can barely use MS Paint.

I'm thinking of making a rough fold and cut zine (2x8 panel a3 size paper) and stapling them together.
laying out the paper, pasting the images on and then photocopying that however many times feels necessary

it'll probably be super sketchy but we will see how it turns out.

hopefully you guys can help out so I can make it better

I just messed around to see what worked and what didn't. Looked at older Thrashers, Transworlds, and porn mags to get some ideas. A lot of cut and paste but the beauty of it is u can do whatever the hell u desire.

Was in the middle of making one (20 pages done) two years ago n  had my kid. Since then, the project has been at a standstill on account of I don't skate with anybody anymore and my bike rides are severely limited (Used to just run into people sessioning spots, ask permission, then take pictures). Shit, I got a pic of Tom K's first Zero ad just riding along the beach trail before work, Even got a Phanner photo a year before he was in any mags or videos.

Looked through whats done recently and decided to do it more like a skate/bike riding thing. Planning a ride from Long Beach to Oceanside (The Orange County ride) soon and see how things work out.

Glad to see this bumped. Just the other day I found an old skate zine I made for college, and while it was fun to make the content was very rushed and suited to appeal to a class rather than a wide skate audience. Been trying to brainstorm what kinda stuff I would write about if I were to make another.

Ideally you want to use a page layout program like indesign. I'd discourage anyone from using photoshop because that just seems like a nightmare. Illustrator would suffice, but only if you don't have access to indesign.

The thing with zines is they can be as rough or as polished as you want. you could take a few sheets of 11x17" paper, fold them into a book, then take prints of whatever you want as your content and tape or glue them to the pages to make a master copy, then photocopy that a bunch of times. It might take some trial and error, but you could do that without even opening a design program. For something more polished, you definitely want to use indesign or something similar. Set up your document with a page count in a multiple of 4, make sure you have facing pages turned on, decided weather or not you want your content to bleed (more work and possible more expensive if you do) and make sure you add at least a .25" bleed to your document. Then fill the pages with content and print using the print booklet feature. Make sure you select to have your crop marks and bleed marks printing and know that you need to print on a larger size sheet if you're going to be cutting it down. Then it's just scoring the pages down the center so they fold easier, cutting them out, then binding the book together.

If anyone needs more help, shoot me a PM.

Ah cool to see this thread, I just started work on a zine of my own. I did a quick sort of mock-up one just by hand on some 8"x11" paper folded over into a booklet. All hand drawn and written. I'd like to make a nice glossy one sooner rather than later, I need to look into costs etc. though. I have a feeling I'm going to lose money in the long run, but whatever I suppose. ART AIN'T ABOUT THE MONEY MAN.

Haven't put out a zine in awhile. For couple of issues, I actually had them profesionally printed but I really prefer the hand cut and paste and photo copy approach these days.

http://foulweather.blogspot.com

I'm down to trade. I' ve got copies of issues 2,3,4 of my zine foulweather. My last issue had a skate related story in it and my attempt at a horror short story... plus some other crap...



Thinking of putting out a new issue with my collage efforts and maybe some bad poetry...
