International Zine Month 2021 – make a flyer

Do you make zines? How do you make publicity for them? Only online, or offline too? It’s probably a good (and fun) idea to make and print some paper flyers as today’s International Zine Month prompt (see Stolen Sharpie Revolution) suggests:

“Make a flyer for your zine to trade with others, post online, or send out with zine orders and trades”.

I like to include flyers with zine orders and trades (if postage allows something extra) and I also enjoy doing flyer swaps along with zine swaps to support and advertise other zinesters. Besides, there are often spots in cafés, record shops, book shops, cultural centres, community centres, libraries, etc where you can leave your flyers for potential readers to find. I also just like receiving and collecting flyers of DIY projects. They often look so cool and creative and are almost as good as the thing they are advertising.

Here are all my ECHO flyers, from (very) old to brandnew (I just designed the newest one but still need to get it printed):

  1. These are all SO COOL! I love how they create a sort of timeline of your zines and your style. I’m totally inspired to do a flyer :O

    1. Thanks! 🙂 Yes, that’s true, you can really see how my style evolved with the flyers. I now wish I had made more over the years but I usually keep reprinting the last one. It’s good there’s IZM to encourage me to make a new one. 🙂 I’m be curious to see your flyer if you make one! I love your lino art!
