Hey! Good luck with the fair, hopefully it goes well and you have tons of fun.

I would print 10-30 copies of the zines depending on how many you expect to trade afterwards. (Usually you can trade with the other people who are tabling, or even some guests will bring zines to trade.)

Usually I do 10 of each zine I'm bringing, but I have a lot of different zines that I table (I think I brought like 20 different zines last time, I made a bunch of my mini zines "micro" so they would fit without the table being too crowded). So, depending on how many different zines you are bringing and how many trades you would like to do 10-30 copies per zine.

As for what to charge it really depends on the quality & size of the zine. I sold my mini zines (8 page book from 1 sheet of paper) for $1, but I saw a few people charging $2-$3 and they sold. If it's a bigger zine you can easily charge up to $5-$10. You need to take into account the price of printing and the tabling fee for the fair. You can also do deals like 1 for $2, 3 for $5. Or create little $5-$10 mystery packs. Hope this helps! I don't know your specific zine details so I'm trying to keep it general.

​

As for a display, the cheapest thing I found was these little rack things ( https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0719P1TVT/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_dp_U_x_lbqhDbXGRDFJJ ) on Amazon. They have different options. But I found people are less likely to look at the shelf if you have items on the table. So put all of your "best sellers" front & center on the table. If you don't know which are the best sellers keep an eye out for what people keep picking up and you can rearrange your table to have them in a better spot.

​

Also, let people know they can pick up everything to look through if they want! Some people are too shy to just assume they can.

I've made 3 in the last couple months (https://splashofcode.com). I started making zines about 6 years ago when I wrote a tiny book on Facebook programming. At the time, I had never heard of a zine, but I wanted to share the info. I created it digitally and published it on Amazon for the Kindle. I created a few more. As books, many of them bombed (bad reviews). Then I published one explaining how I created them and suddenly people liked it (Publish on Kindle; How to write your ebook with free software https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00A4112ZM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_1pLwCbQ1C7N72). After that I came across The Sharpie Evolution. Suddenly my love for tiny books had a name and I was able to find others.

hi i know i’m super late with this reply but i finally tested some paper for printing zine pages. i used this that i got from amazon. the settings i used were standard printing, grayscale, borderless printing, print quality high. it offers duplex printing but it’s manual and i was like “eh i’ll just flip it myself” because i was anxious about messing it up lol. i’m really happy with the way it all turned out

I have a 44 page comic that I bound by printing it on 8.5x11 in sheets (not as a booklet) and stapled alongside the left edge of the stack, then I covered the staples with some book binding tape. It's a bit more work than a zine usually takes but it gives a nice result! I got a lot of compliments on the binding when I first made the book.

The thing I love about zines is the infinite ways in which they can be made.

I draw mine digitally (used to use ink, switched to digital a few years ago), print them at home in black and white, on 8.5x11 (somtimes 5.5x4.25) with a duplexing Brother printer, staple them with a booklet stapler, crease them with a bone folder, then distribute them in various ways.

I used to run a zine subscription where I sent out a new, original zine each month to people who subscribed for ~$40. I also table at zine fests across the country. And I donate zines to any/all local zine libraries I can find.

I have illustration zines, lettering zines, and poetry zines, and I have noticed that poetry zines (aka "chapbooks") usually sell way less. I think it's because (in the U.S. at least) poetry is just undervalued in general (unfortunately).

Mini-cds give you the ease of dealing with cds along with their low cost with a little bit of the pizazz of being just a little to the side of normal.

https://www.amazon.com/Memorex-Minute-Mini-Discs-50-Pack-Spindle/dp/B00005NHGP/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1497915603&sr=8-7&keywords=mini+cd-r

that sort of thing. It makes up for CDs not quite being retro by being a little weird.

I store my regular floppies in these https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N4I66JJ
but am having trouble finding something similar for my generally 5 - 7 inch wide zines. I like the transparency.
