Are there any labels around that sign metal zines? The first print run of my own zine has sold out, but I don't have the money to get another one done, so I'd be willing to get a label to print it off.

I've noticed that The Sinister Flame website has a zine only distro, and seem to remember something similar being discused in an old Canadian Assault, but are there any labels that actually pay for the pressing of the zines and not just stock them?

I would not say that I signed "Downtuned & Morbid Zine" but I offered the editor to finance a reprint of his first issue, which he accepted since then.

Think about Snakepit and Slayer Zine and their collaboration with NWN.

I think the term "pressing" is a bit strange sounding when it comes to printing parts like zines and shirts.... Very Happy
Anyway, there were several labels financing zines before, but I wouldn´t say that´s a common practice !

Maybe it's not done because the zines would inevitably show favoritism in their reviews/interviews with bands signed to that label. The zine would be in the label's pocket.

It's not really the case with Snkepit since it doesn't cover the same sub genre. Slayer is Slayer and Metalion will do whatever he wants.

The idea of a fanzine is DIY, isn't it? It's possible to spend less by trading less, some ads can help too. Money comes and goes, so once the stock is sold and there is still demand for more copies, if there's no money to reprint it, you can wait and print later. I practiced this method so far and it works Smile

Do a xero zine, you'll allways get few bucks to "print" another copy.

Yeah, when I was dirt poor I used to do photocopies by the demand. Search in your city to see the cheapest photocopy place and do everything yourself, you'll save alot. Good luck!

YES that's also a very good idea!

Actually, the very very first copies of my zines were photocopied for free at my dad's job at the government. Laughing

it used to be insanely easy to steal copies from staples (i think that was it). a group of 4 or 5 of us would just go to the self serve copy machines with empty backpacks and fill them up with literally thousands of copies. we'd then take a stack of 20 or so to the register and pay a dollar or whatever.
