The perks of working in a print shop. Wasn’t feeling productive so I made stickers. I guess it’s a different kind of productivity, a more fun one. 3,5x2” Black on vinyl. Comes free with every zine order or trade

Marya is a rad lady who is starting
The Pamphleteer Project 
and you should help her out:

HI! MY NAME IS MARYA— I’m the founder of ABQ Zine Fest, (now in its 4th year) The Albuquerque Zine Library, and a co-founder/curator of The Tannex, a DIY performance clubhouse, in this outpost, in the high desert of New Mexico. I love my creative community, and I do a lot to support and nurture it. I’m asking for your support as I embark on a new project that expands my love for zines, self-publishing, and storytelling …
THE PAMPHLETEER PROJECT MISSION: to help diversify existing zine collections, or help establish new ones by presenting women/feminist focused, people of color influenced, gender-inclusive zines and comics to groups and collectives around the world.
YOUR CONTRIBUTION TO THE PAMPHLETEER PROJECTwill help me get to Sweden to present a pop-up zine library and free workshops at the TITWRENCH Stockholm Festival— a women’s music festival. The fest was founded in Denver by Sarah Slater in 2008. TITWRENCH Stockholm is the first satellite of the original fest. After the event, I will donate 100-200 zines to a collective in the city. 
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
YOUR GENEROUS FINANCIAL SUPPORT will:
Cover airfare to Stockholm.
Pay for simple materials to set up the zine library. 
If we surpass the goal of $2,500, this will allow me to take this pilot program and expand its reach to other collectives within the punk/zine community and beyond. Someday, I imagine this project being able to support other zinesters interested in delivering zines to groups and communities.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
WHY STOCKHOLM?
To spite our perceptions of Sweden being a utopia, The country is more diverse than the media reflects. Along with the changes to this nation comes unrest. Last year, Stockholm experienced 5 days of rioting.  On March 8th of this year, an act of fascism in the form of a knife attack occurred on the night of International Women’s Day, injuring several women taking part in a Reclaim the Night demonstration. These are acts of violence, but they are also acts of ignorance. The Pamphleteer Project supports the independent voice by presenting diversity as a means of and solidarity with local communities striving for peace through mutual acceptance. 
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
WHY ZINES?
I know zines to be a form that can open pathways to self-expression when other avenues are blocked, guide people through difficult conversations, and fuel strong political actions in communities through the power of the independent voice. Most importantly, zines can connect us to the human intimacy of storytelling.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
OTHER WAYS YOU CAN HELP:
+ Due to time constraints, and optimum ticket-buying, please donate to the project via paypal. I know, I know… your donation via credit card is also appreciated!  
+ If you can’t contribute $$ please donate ZINES that fit the criteria mentioned in the project description. Please email me at thepamphleteerproject at gmail dot com to find out where to submit your zine! 
THANK YOU!

Palette Magazine interviewed some of this year’s tablers at LA Zine Fest 2014, and here’s what they had to say!

Q: How is this fest different from something like Comic Con?

John Pham – The differences are pretty obvious. You can start at the choice of venue: LA Zine Fest this year was held in a repurposed parking structure; we were setting up tables on top of parking dividers and motor oil stains. LA Zine Fest is the local farmers’ market, San Diego Comic Con is the WTO Ministerial Conference.

Alisa Yang – LA Zine Fest allows more alternative and independent small press and self publishers, the eclectic variety is unmatched by big mainstream fests. Free admission is great for encouraging people to visit, the cost for table/booth is way more affordable than Comic Con or APE(Alternative Press Expo). You are more likely to find zines that are handmade, unusual, limited editions, or just beautiful works of art.

Jennie Yim – LAZF is focused on artists/writers who self-publish whereas Comic Con is focused on franchises/brands with mass market appeal. Pretty much anyone can exhibit and sell at LAZF and this is facilitated by the inexpensive tabling fees, proximity to mass transportation and core of dedicated volunteer staff. There is so much good will and solidarity based on the common goal everyone has of having a safe space for people of all backgrounds to share their experiences, tell their stories.

Jeremy Arambulo – I preferred it way more than Comic Con. Independent creators/companies tend to get overshadowed by Comic Con’s larger spectacles/events.

A Zinester’s Quick Guide to Copyright by Not a Lawyer Srsly

Great quick overview of alternatives to traditional copyright choices, or to not thinking about copyright at all (which means traditional copyright will apply to your work).

Let’s Get Seriously Radical About Cataloging by Richard J Lee

"The latest addition to Amistad’s Zine Collection is a title that actually includes information about Amistad’s own collection. Richard J. Lee’s recent zine, Let’s Get Seriously Radical About Cataloging: A Minizine about Zine Librarianship, provides a wonderful roadmap to zine collections around the United States. Joining Amistad’s focus on POC (People of Color) zines, are four other collections: the Mimi Thi Nguyen Zine Collection at New York University, the Zine Collection at Texas A&M University, the Asian American Zine Archive at UC-Davis, and the Zine Collection at the Chicano Research Studies Center at UCLA.


Richard’s zine provides information not only POC zine collections, but those related to a variety of topics, such as feminism, Riot Grrrrrl, gender and sexuality, sci-fi, poetry, and others. Thanks to Richard for including Amistad in his listing.”

Collide: On Physical and Mental Illness by JC
"From the editor: Collide is a collection of essays by those who are living with a physical disability and some form of mental illness.

None of this is easy. Discussing these two distinct but intertwined parts of ourselves, the dynamic, conflicting, challenging, hopeful parts of ourselves, is to be doubly vulnerable. It is to reveal the colliding parts of ourselves that are most intimate, and often hidden.

Essays include:

Finding Meaning in Pain by Maranda Elizabeth (Telegram)

Wow by Synthia Nicole (Damaged Mentality)

Half and Half by JC (Tributaries)

When Disabilities, Dysfunctional Childhoods, and Mental Health Collide by Kerri Radley (Deafula)

With cover art from Anna Gk”
