5.12 Zine Collective Meeting Notes
Our first meeting at Double Rainbow took place this past Sunday. If you missed it here’s what was discussed!
PIONEERS PRESS NEEDS YOUR HELP!
Hey folks! We’re still trying to recover financially and emotionally from our mega-bad breakup with Microcosm Publishing (you know how it goes, he got the house and the car, we got the hungry kids, the dog, and the therapist bills) and we’re having a hell of a time keeping the lights on here at the distro.
People have asked us how they can help besides ordering from us so we put together this list. Anything you can do would be hugely appreciated!
*Help Spread the Word! Let your buddies know about the new Pioneers Press! Link to us on your blog. We need all the help we can get to let people know who we are and what we’re doing.
*Pass out our catalogs or flyers! If you’re down to drop off some of our flyers at your neighborhood bookstore or venue, get in touch and we’ll send you a stack.
*Be Our “Friend”! When we split from Microcosm Publishing we had to start from scratch out in the social networking world. (Oh, the horror!) Want updates on new titles, contests, and sales? Follow us!
*Sign Up For Our Newsletter! This is another great way to find out about new titles, our monthly contests, and super-secret deals for our newsletter subscribers!
*Give Us Feedback! Love the zine you just bought? Go to our website and add a comment on the zine’s product page. Happy with our service? Spread the word! Think we screwed something up? Let us know so we can fix it! Can’t find the zine you’re looking for? Tell us and we’ll try to track it down for you. We want to stock awesome stuff and provide great customer service but we can’t do that without your input and feedback.
*Share some loot! We love to include freebies with our orders, so if you’ve got free mini-zines, stickers or patches promoting your zine, postcards advertising your indie business, bookmarks promoting your latest project, or other small fun things that’ll fit in a priority mail envelope send them our way!
*Send us a postcard! Dudes, some days we get so bummed out and weighed down by messages from haters, ex-friends, and bill collectors that we want to throw in the towel and never leave the farm again. Love letters and care packages from strangers are what got us through this winter. Keep ‘em coming!
WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU! Orders@pioneerspress.com
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!
<3 Jessie, Adam, Thaddeus, Rio, and all the animals on the Hard Fifty Farm
