@Schnitzel nice hope they turn out good. any goals for a completion date in mind?

The completion date is ASAP!

still have to get it printed and sold etc.

 

My original plan was to have it ready for christmas but that's not gonna happen.

 

Trying really hard to do 4 pages a day so far today I have done 6 so I'm doing okay.

 for the rebuild of the original zines we're in final 50 pages and thankfully at least 16 are just drag and drop.

 

 and I've just found the printers wont be able to do a cover so I have to find another printer.

 No reason why not, just take some effort.

Do you know why the original was taken down though? I'm just wondering if it was a mod decision that could be repeated again if we started a new thread or if it was the OP.

 

I have a gang of zines mostly bay stuff from the 90s - present but also some others sprinkled in I would be down to do my part. I'm always looking for people to trade with so it could help. I already dedicated a good portion of my teen years to this forum no reason I can't make a come back and waste some more.

It was not disappeared by the mods.

 

Please make a come back. Would love to see some of that 90’s Bay Area funk you speak of.

Trying to work out whether or not to print my book.

 

The presales have been so disappointing and I've only raised about 12% of my printing costs  (and that's now that I've reduced the quantity potentially being printed)

 

I can't reduce quantity any further because the unit cost goes up too high.

 

I can cover the costs with no issue but I am not sure if I want to if I'm going to have piles of books in my shed.

 

I can't sell it overseas unless I just pick a figure for postage and go for it. but

 

Either way, I think it's dead in the water.:classic-sad:
