What’s so great about advertising in a zine is that people keep them kicking around for a long time. They look at them multiple times. They keep them on the coffee table and share them with friends.

We continue selling back issues until each copy has sold. People stopping by our table at craft sales and zine fairs often flip through old issues and check out the ads that run. Our fans are very interested in what kind of advertising we receive and are always asking when meeting us at events. We’d love to be able to tell them about how much your business supports us!

Our awesome contributors have sent subscriptions to places like Klinic, Alpha House, Osborne House and Pembina Hair, so many individual copies are seen by many eyes.
