Hello! We got ours printed by Colour Copy Center in Nottingham (where we’re based) and got 21 copies for £36. This was pretty good considering some of the quotes we’d been given from other places! In terms of making things cheaper for yourself, we printed all ours in black and white and sometimes paper quality can also effect the price. Staple bind is probably the cheapest (and most effective we think as it looks more ‘ziney’). We made sure we knew what we wanted and then rang loads of places and compared prices to find our best deal. We also did a mock up version (which we printed ourselves) and took that to the printers so they had a guide as to what we wanted the zine to overall look like. Oh and (if you’re a student) ask to see if they do discount! We hope this helps and good luck with your zine :)
If you didn’t manage to grab yourself a copy of Venus and Penis: The Dating Game at Nottingham Zine Fair, then don’t worry, our shop is now open online! Check it out here http://www.etsy.com/listing/101500551/venus-and-penis-issue-one-dating-game
Ladies, don’t expect to have a date in the next three weeks as the boys will be busy down the pub… however Fellas, if you ignore your girlfriends during this football season expect the only balls to be kicked are your own.
We love the Queen and the Royal Family even more than we did before, so proud to be British at the moment. Hope you’re all having a lovely Jubilee weekend!
So Hannah and Jack are off home for the summer so Venus and Penis will be taking a little break. However, we will keep you updated on what we’re doing and maybe have some summer stories to tell. We’re in the process of setting up our online shop so stay peeled for that link later on next week! Hope you’ve enjoyed our first issue and there’ll be exciting things to come from Venus and Penis in September!
