I'm Kristy and I started this distro in late 1999 because I felt that there was
a serious lack of fanzine distributors in Australia. Compared to the myriads overseas,
we barely had a handful. I love zines so much as a means of artistic expression,
and it makes me so happy to provide this service as a means of getting these amazing
creations out there.(...) My passion is for zines...

"Kataklisma is an online distro, a project started by me, Laura, to allow people from all over the globe to buy 'zines and other diy stuff. I'm a 22 years old girl, i'm studying fashion design in Milan and i've always been into 'zines, art and creative activities. When i first started to be interested in 'zines and the world of diy the biggest problem was having the chance to buy international 'zines 'cause there weren't many distros who provided international expedition. Especially in Europe there were just small distros and it wasn't possible to have many infos about the 'zines they were selling. So i decided to start my own 'zine "kataklisma" and after that i thought it could be a great idea to start a distro to allow european people to buy and sell their 'zines. I accept any kind of 'zine submissions: music related ones, political ones, personal ones, comics, art and photogrpahy related 'zines, and any kind of diy stuff (records, clothing, accessories...).Well, i hope this project will develop a lot...i'm just waiting for you to help me doing it."

of the few zine distros in Finland, started fall 2003. Kaiho sells perzines, feminist
and queer zines, hardcore/punk zines etc. I sell zines in gigs and also do mailorder.
Majority of the zines I sell are in english and only some in finnish. My main
reasons for starting this distro were desire to do something meaningful and to
make the international zine culture a little more familiar for some people in
Finland. by the way, the word 'kaiho' is finnish and it means 'longing' or 'languishing'
(for something) and 'wistfulness'." By Karel. E-mail:

"Essential nutrients is a zine distro from germany. we distribute small press and self-published magazines, the items we distribute include visual art, fiction, rants, poems, true stories or political essays. among others. the aim of this zine distro is to provide a forum for writers, artists and activists to share their work and to make it accessible for an interested public. these expressions, whether it is in a magazine, a piece of art, a poem or a love song are rising out of the do-it-yourself grassroots underground, mainly the punk- and activist-scenes. though we don't want to be limited to these areas. our name - essential nutrients - refers to a song by the british band red monkey, and talks about the importance of ideas, words and inspiration in (my) daily life. that creativity is an essential nutrient. doing a zine distro is not a marketing scheme, but it is not necessarily a revolutionary tool either. we know that we won't change the world by publishing zines. our vision is to build an inclusive community where the sharing of ideas, where communication and a dedication to radical and progressive social change is imminent in our thoughts and actions. this is not an easy thing to accomplish. let's start. if you are interested in finding distribution for your zine, please get in touch. you can ask for a mailing address. if you look at the catalogue, you can get an idea of what we are interested in and if it makes sense to offer your zine. thanks for your time!

Some of these things include zines, books, postcards, stickers, clothes, and
many crafty things. The coolest little shops always seem to have themes, whether
it be sex, food, or dinosaurs. Sadly, Flaming Tatertots feels less cool because
no dinosaurs are yet to be found. The only theme that can really seem to be
found is my utopian ideal of spreading knowledge, creativity, and forward
thinking for change in individual lives." Quoted from Flaming Tatertots website.

my friends were making that I thought were fantastic as well as other cute items
I wanted you to have. I have recently enlisted the help of my 14 year old sister
Veronica with running the distro. (...) Taryn writes the zine Girl Swirl and has been since the cold winter months of 1998. Before Girl Swirl Taryn wrote
a zine called Sophisti-Femme that is no longer in print and thankfully so. The
chances of you seeing that zine are slim, unless you were around during the days
of Pavlov's Dogs, Bread Riot & the rockin' Bucks County scene "back in
the day". Let's just say, it was your typical riot grrrl zine. Taryn is recently
married to Joshua who runs oneinchbuttons.com & tryandstopmemedia.com. In

|Red Jewel Distro
|"My name is Elizabeth Peña. I embody the identities of feminist, antiracist, socialist, anticolonialist, antihomophobic, antisexist, vegetarian, queer, and of color. (...) The mission of Red Jewel will change little by little over time but Red Jewel is intended to serve a revolutionary purpose. I do not intend to ever change that. It is a project rooted in my own beliefs of feminism, antiracist, anticolonialist, and antihomophobic theory. I will never allow Red Jewel to become something that does not serve to educate and inform the public (and those involved in Red Jewel) about social, political, and economic inequalities. If anything is to change, it would only be the addition of more revolutionary identities. (...) Whenever possible, Red Jewel will not feature clothing, jewelry, or any assembly parts that were made in a sweatshop. I'm trying to do as much research as possible to make sure button parts, hemp, and everything else was made justly. If ever Red Jewel features shirts or other apparel, it will only be union made apparel whenever possible. Zines and any other paper products must be printed on recycled paper. I feel very strongly about this. Sending stuff to me that's been made out of recycled material is always welcomed and encouraged (re-use dammit!)."

|Red Envelope Distro
|"Red Envelope distro was born in the spring time of year 2004. It took its first breath because I didn't find enough interesting zines and music in Finland and also because I wanted to have a project of my own. So far I've mostly forced my friends and their friends (and family members and relatives and dogs and cats etc.) to buy zines and music that I think would interest them too, but I wish to get more orders from abroad in future. I also try to get some Finnish zines and music to sell something that maybe isn't so easy to get in your hands somewhere far away. In zines the communication and possibility of many friendships fascinate me the most. Getting an interesting zine from someone you may have never heard of is like receiving a nice letter from someone you have missed without even noticing it. I also love it how zines are something everyone can make. It's not about knowing how to or not being good enough anyone can make a zine and it always interests some but never everyone.
I'm personally most interested in perzines and artzines, but I try to get different kind of zines for the distro. Actually my main criterion is that I like the zines myself. Like in zines, also in music I'm interested in diy ethics. I'm open to different kind of music as long as it has something to say, but I think I like the most singer/songwriter kind of music and indie in general. If you'd like to get your zine or music to be sold here, don't hesitate to contact me (all the contact information you can find below). I'm trying to get more items to sell all the time. At the moment I'm especially looking for zines that discuss environmental issues and singer/songwriter women. Katja K."

distro was started in january 2001 because was really frustrated because of the
lack of feminist activism in finland and i felt like i needed to do something.
i thought a great thing would be to start a distro because there isn't any feminist
focused distros in finland and i wanted to let my finnish friends to get a chance
to also read some amazing zines from abroad. and i wanted to let my american and
other european friends to be able to get their hands on some great finnish music.
i want women to also to be active participants in our communities, especially
politically and i believe that grassroots activism is a great way to affect on
the society and influence people. a good explample of this is zines. and i hope
that the distro customers won't just become passive cunsumers, but that they would
be inspired and make their own zines, start bands, make art. do something. this
is how i started." Run by riikka, read an interview

stina should start her own distro since she found so many swedish zines and since
she was ready to go her own way. her riot distro was born and ladybomb swe was
both Ladybomb and (her) RIOT distro was started because there where no distros

mission to change that. and we did.(her) RIOT distro is a non profit distro (but

i do.) i distro feminist zines only! (although i do some few compromises if the
zines is really REALLY good and is political in some other sort of way.) for me
it's important to get girls (yeah there are boy feminist too but i haven't found
anyone who writes a feminist zine yet so until then i write girls and nothing
else) voises heard, it's hard to convince the punk boys with distros to distro

Distro is dedicated exclusively to zines made by Canadian girls, grrls and young
women. We ship anywhere in the world, but only take Canadian currency. Canadian
girl owned and operated. By Sara Jane. " What is so special about Drown Soda
Distro? Well, there are only a few on-line distros in Canada, and many, many,
zines. The Drown Soda Distro is dedicated to Canadian girl zines – unlike
all others, who carry mostly zines from the U.S. or those made by men. We already
have zines from Manitoba, British Columbia and Quebec, as well as from Ontario.
So you see, it’s a great way to try out the zines you can’t find in
your local stores. Drown Soda Distro is not meant to be competition for other
distros or stores. Rather, it is meant to provide an easy and accessible place
for zine-lovers and feminists to find zines that are otherwise hard to get across
this great-big country of ours. Ordering is easy too! I take only Canadian money,
which you can simply slip in an envelope and send. Taa-daa, just like that."

Lady Project is a London (Ontario) based distro that was born in March of 2001.
I started The Lady Project as an outlet to distribute nifty stuff like shirts
and zines and hopefully music as well someday. Ideas of starting a distro had
been circling around in my head for about a year so it’s exciting that I‘ve
finally gotten things underway. I’m starting out small but hoping to grow
as I get new designs, new products, and new ideas. I called this distro "The
Lady Project" because A) The name sounded rad, and B) A lot of my distro
ideas center around feminism and femininity. By no means does this name imply
that everything I distribute deals with feminism or that my products are for girls
and not for boys. The Lady Project is for everyone." By Anne.
Art Revival was conceived in the summer of 1997 as a personal mission to create
local feminist film screening. Since then, the project has gained momentum and
many participants who have helped me orchestrate an ongoing film festival, touring
east coast universities and alternative exhibition spaces. As well as the screenings,
the concept fueling Ladies Art Revival is to make independent, feminist, queer
video and art more accessible through this web page and our mail-order catalog."

a look and come back soon when I have some zines posted. Also If your lazy, like

started this distro as a method to bring light to more zines that are really excellent
but don't get much publicity. There are so many zines out there that it's hard
to find the diamonds in the rough a lot of the time. Thus it is not repetative
to add another distro to the world, because there is never enough light shed on
the really good underground zines. My focus is finding good zines that don't get
as much credit as they should. Distros are a way to get the word out, to allow
others to get more involved in the underground movement, to share what you've
created, and to receive what others have created. Because of that, Starfire Witch
is completely not-for-profit." (Jennnyrose) Great stuff! http://www.nbtsc.org/starfirewitch/main.html
is an offering of homemade and handmade items. This project is handled by each
of the individual people who contribute their art and ideas. We are spread out
over several states, and each handle different parts of the process. We know from
experience that it'll be hard work, but well worth it.|
There are many motivations
behind this project, some obvious, some not so. Mainly there is something inside
of us that needs to create to survive. We love art, music, books, zines, movies,
food and clothes. We figured we might as well have an outlet for that devotion.

little store/distribution for the benefit of the Afghan women (...) In September
'96, an extremist militia known as the Taliban took control of Kabul, the capital
of Afghanistan. Since then, the lifestyles of the women living in Afghanistan
have been altered dramatically (...) So this little store is my attempt to raise
money for the cause. All proceeds go directly to support the Feminist Majority
Foundation's campaign to stop gender apartheid to give these women and girls back
some of what they lost. At the moment, we are working on raising the funds to
adopt a girls' home school for six months." Stock DIY items, zines and shirts,
so help this good cause!|
