Think up a theme and structure
Determine what kind of content, how many pages, and what shape you will use for your zine. It's helpful to write and sketch out your ideas while you're doing this.
Decide the specifications
Decide on the size, type of paper, and binding method for your zine. While you're at it, plan the production cost too. It's a good idea to decide how many copies you are going to make.
Gather your materials
Gather all of the text, illustrations, photos, and other materials that you will use to make your zine. These will all have a big effect on the making of your zine.
Layout a draft
Next, layout the text and photos on the page. You can do this by hand or using computer software.
Printing and binding
Print (or copy) your completed draft, and then assemble and bind it.
Distribution and sales
Once you've completed your zine, you can hand copies out to friends or try selling them at places such as shops and events.
We also recommend using design paper for your covers and body text.
