Zine-o-Matic was founded in 2015 and currently operates out of the Zine Lair, AKA a suburban garage in East Los Angeles. We visit zine festivals all around the country and sort through thousands of zines to find the cream of the crop. We connect with the best up and coming artists in each city and set up distribution deals to send their best work out in our monthly shipments. The backbone of Zine-o-Matic is curation. We only secure deals with the best artists and we strive to make sure every shipment is packed with the best that the zine community has to offer.
Part of what makes zines so great is that they are handcrafted by the artists themselves. Artists pour their heart and soul into creating their zines, but sometimes struggle with how to get their work out into the world. Similarly people who love to read zines know that there must be great zines out there, but can’t seem to find out where they're hiding. By definition zine distribution is limited, many zines are only distributed in the city in which they are created. Zine-o-Matic takes the best zines from places like Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Brooklyn, and Chicago, and curates them into an awesome shipment every month.
