Zine printing 

Share interesting topics, expose semi-hidden subcultures or new music subgenres by printing your own zine.

Your zine cover

In a publication like a zine, the cover plays a fundamental role – like in every "self-respecting magazine, it is the cover that highlights the themes dealt with inside and must be very graphic and packed with details.

Hardcover vs paperback? Which is better? Again, this all depends on the final look you want to achieve. A magazine usually has a paperback cover but a more "classy" publication requires a hardback cover.

The choice also depends on how much content there will be in the publication: if it will have lots of pages, perhaps a hardback cover would be more suitable.

Create your fanzine starting from the type of binding

Zines could be considered a forerunner of the Internet because of their power to provide a space for niche communities across the world. A space to report their culture, discuss issues, ideas and news about that world and bear witness to its existence.

These days, zines have become very fashionable, with many readers appreciating the opportunity to have something real in their hands, the pleasure of reading something new and original, beyond the classic editorial circuits, with their own limits and censorship.

Whether you write about niche TV series from the '70s, sci-fi worlds, Celtic music, comics or anything else, you can print your zines here.

Zine printing is so easy: choose from different types of cover, binding and paper. You can create a modern, sophisticated product or print a zine with a slightly rough, original and self-produced look reflecting the first zines.

Zine binding

As mentioned, you can choose from different types of binding:

  • Perfect binding
  • Sewn binding
  • stapled binding
  • Wire-o binding

Which you choose depends on you and the look you want your zine to have. Zines often take on the look of a self-produced tabloid/magazine, so to give your zine that look, stapled binding or perfect binding might be best. Whereas if you want to create a more refined, elegant zine, then sewn binding is definitely the best option!
