I finally purchased an actual website for the distro! I'm still learning working on the layout and transferring everything over, but it will have all the zines, crafts, etc. from the distro, as well as my own projects, including THiNK! Bookmark it & check back for more details!

Avocado Tree Distro!

Also, I'm planning on putting another issue of THiNK out hopefully by the end of November. It will be all black and white, printed on a nice printer at my school. I'm looking for some great cover art, some artists to interview, and some people to advertise in it. It's going to be a pretty thick issue, and really great zine!

FINALLY! [02 Jun 2007|12:59am]
The first issue of THiNK has been done for some time, it was just a matter of finding a good place to get the copies made. And after calling every place in the phone book, I have found a place not far from here who will do make the copies for relatively cheap... or cheaper than most haha.

So, my question is:

How many people are actually interested in purchasing a copy or subscription? I am going to try to keep the price to under $5, and will need an estimate of how many copies to have made.

Comment if interested :]

Advertisement Space for Sale [18 Mar 2007|01:26pm]

So here is it... the Spring 2007 edition of the Avocado Tree Distro print catalogue!

To cut printing costs down for THiNK Art Zine, I'm going to start selling ad space in the distro catalogue.

In the back of the catalogue, there will be space for a couple 2 x 2 inch advertisements for $5.00 each.

On the inside front cover, there is room for one 3.5 x 3 inch advertisement, and room for two of those on the back cover. Those are $10.00 each.

I will be making about 2000 copies to start off with. About 1200 will go to the Sampler for a couple of months when I contribute some zines to them in the next couple of months, and the rest will go to various other distros/zines for flyer trades, and in each order. That`s 2000 people guaranteed to see your advertisement!

contact me at avocadotreedistro[at]yahoo[dot]com if you're interested. The deadline in the 31st of March.

Welcome to THiNK Art Zine! [08 Mar 2007|09:29pm]
So i just created this Livejournal specifically for the zine, so that people can subscribe to this journal and receive the latest news about upcoming issues, submission calls, and other zine-y happenings.

Right now we are taking submissions for our first issue. The deadline is March 31st. Send all submissions to thinkartzine@yahoo.com, along with your contact information. The idea behind this zine is to promote unknown artists, and to try to help them find some jobs.

I will be posting a FAQ post, and putting it under the memories, so be on the lookout for that. If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment or e-mail me.
