Wow! I am so pleased to say that it is complete, except for taking down to the printers, putting them together and mailing them off… it is finally complete! Thank you to those people who have pre-ordered, they will be shipped out next week and I will send you an email to confirm that it has been sent. It has definitely been a HUGE learning curve I had no idea how complicated the simple ideas can end up being and how simple something you think that will be really hard to do… Making a zine of your own is a huge task if you don’t sit down and really plan out what you need to write, research, review and make. Not to mention taking photos, page layout, printing options, mailing options costs and how it will be perceived and read.
Obviously I am filled with concerns about peoples opinions when it arrives and hope that it is as fun and informative as I had intended. I have some wonderful ideas for my next issue, I would love nothing more than to share those ideas with you but those can wait! I have decided that the next issue will be in an A4 format as the A5 was quite restricting when it came to the content I wanted to add in. As well as that I plan to work in a better way, making the pages, scanning them in and then editing them and doing the page layout on the computer.
I highly suggest you give a zine a try, even if it is just a folded piece of A4 paper.. You will be thrilled and surprised with what you come up with and how it turns out!
