You Can Make a Zine

Before 5to9zine, we made PEELzine and Surface Area Zine. Our editor Dave also made a guide to making zines called You Can Make a Zine. It’s a great resource if you’re thinking of starting a zine and don’t know where to begin. It’s available on our site for $3 for a printed copy or as a free PDF download. Click here for both options on our shop.

Joe Biel in 5to9zine

We will be interviewing Joe Biel of Microcosm Publishing about his autism movement building and support work and how he manages this and other side projects in addition to running an independent publishing and distribution company full time. Microcosm describes itself as having “a reputation for teaching self-empowerment, showing hidden histories, and fostering creativity through challenging conventional publishing wisdom, influencing other publishers large and small with books and bookettes about DIY skills, food, zines, and art.” Visit Microcosm Publishing here.

Our first sponsor – StickerGuy!

We just got our first sponsor, StickerGuy! Big thanks to Pete(r) Menchetti for the support and for believing in our new zine. StickerGuy! is the O.G. sticker printer. If you’re having stickers printed for the first time, or if you’ve been making stickers for years you can’t go wrong for black & white or red & black on white vinyl stickers. They last just about forever and their prices are great. Making stickers for your side project not only helps get the word out, it’s fun too! Click the banner below…
