Zines at NVC: Make & Share

What will I need?

Not much!  Scissors, glue, markers, photos or other collage materials, and a copy machine for quick duplication are probably the most important. You can make a zine as elaborate or as simple as you'd like. 

 

Printing and Layout Help

Below are some resources for setting up a basic 8.5 x 11 folded booklet zine.

Printing 

  • The library does not have a photocopier. To copy a cut and paste zine, scan it on the flatbed scanner, email it to yourself OR save it to a USB flash drive and then hop on a computer and print it with your GoPrint account.
  • If your zine is a standard booklet made from an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper folded in half with the text in a landscape orientation you will want to print it double sided and select flip on the short edge. This will keep your pages from printing upside down. 
  • If you need assistance with printing contact Rose Rodriguez, rrodriguez679@alamo.edu
