What you need

What you need to make a zine:

  • Paper (any type will do! Yes, even printer paper.)

  • Writing utensils, such as pencils, markers, and pens

  • A way to combine your pages and hold them together, such as a long-arm stapler, folds, or a rubber band.

    • How will you combine the pages of your zine? Are you just folding the paper in half? Thirds?

    • How will you hold it together? Are you stapling the pages, using a simple rubber band, or binding them together?

  • Repurposed materials - use whatever you like and feel drawn to. Some examples include newspapers, fabric, images, drawn art, stickers, washi tape, paint chips, etc.

  • Photocopier, printer, or scanner to share your zine

    • Zines are for sharing so remember that this will be replicated. Think about what will show best as a copied text. If you are making a digital copy of your zine, you can use a scanner to upload your pages.
