    get a shitload of cool/unseen flicks before (who wants to see the usual shit printed in b/w??), some funny editorial, a good photocopier and a different looking layout. Say goodbye to any free time at work, money and envelopes. Say hi to cool photo traders!

    i been working on a print zine for a little while now, i have several issues to debate over before i print it, i have more than enough stuff heres my situation.

    i have pagemaker 6.5 also, but my dillema is that it tends to get difficult for me to correlate the pages so that stories more than 1 page get printed in the right place, this is the biggest pain in the ass i find. is there some kind of function in pagemaker that can do this automatically?

    i was just considering pasting all the shit to paper and heading to kinkos for the day, itll look sketchy but, i kinda like that look i think (anyone ever pick up "Kollision" in NYC? kinda like that but with articles...) i have articles that i personally think are hilarious, my pictures are good, i can get better flicks and shit easily from people, and its just centered around general fuckup-ery and basically conveys whats going on in my head onto paper in some form. and trust me its a mess up there...

    im trying to decide the best way to go about this, i think just doing it all at kinkos is looking like the most cost effective way so i dont have to go through killing my home printer.

    any suggestions? anyone want to contribute anything (trust me, anything is good...especially if its fucked up.)

    yea my question was related to Sozers question regarding the order in prints, but i think the only way to do this is to make a good outline of how you want your zine to go

    fuckin DIY cut and paste all the way man... it works for me.. cut and paste the shit on the paper so that it looks how you want it to look when it's all folded over... copy it exactly how it is.. and you've got it... i always fold my paper first... then cut and paste the shit to that.. just so i know i've got everything laid out the right way before i go make a million fucked up copies..

    USE QUARK.
    most offset printers, etc use this program and you can't convert pagemaker to quark, but for some reason you can go the other way around... anyways.. if you're doing it offset, go quark... if you're going to kinkos... use what you want

    so the dead in the dirt kids use quark? good to know. Are you one of them? if so not only is it my favorite zine, but I would like to talk to you about some stuff relating to it if you want to e-mail me.
