the benefits
I want to make a Zine, can you help me?

Zines have become popular among online communities. The idea of creating a passion book made by different illustrators and writers sounds incredibly fun, but it also requieres a lot of organization, communication and management skills. 

A failed or abandoned Zine not only can be a source of stress for the organizer, but also a robbery of the collaborators skills, time and even money.

Two of the hardest tasks to manage in Zine projects are the printing and shipping of the books. That is were most of the problems occur and where we can help you!

We are Midac, a large book distributor company located in Spain since 1992. We work with more than 300 publishers and bookshops, managing their logistics and shipping their books all over the world with competitive costs and fast deliveries. We have published our own books and offer our professional printing services to anyone who needs it.

Our company is very passionate about Zines and has noticed the general issues surrounding the making of these fan projects, most of which seem to stem from printing and shipping. As a company who specializes in both of those things and who has a great love for these projects, we decided to offer special services for anyone who decides to organize their own zine. These services extend to anywhere in the world.

Posting an interest check, opening applications, choosing between future collaborators, making a Discord server… All of these are necessary steps to make a Zine, but before starting the fun stuff you must know who will print it, how will you ship it, and how much everything will cost.

That’s where we can help: If you want to start a zine, fill in the form you will find at the bottom of this page. Include how many color and text pages the zine will have and all the information we ask of you. The numbers don’t need to be 100% precise, but the closer it is to reality, the more accurate will be the price we give you.

Once you send the form, we will reply with how much it would cost to print one single copy, which will greatly help you plan the rest of the project. 

If you are okay with the price, you just need to tell us and we will send you the page templates for the illustrations and text. Our goal is to make the process as easy as possible!

Once you close Preorders, you can contact and send us the Zine file and the number of copies we have to print. We use Print on Demand, a method that allows us to print an exact number of copies so you won’t have to pay for extra stock.

After the Zines are printed, we will ask you to send us the shipping information of the customers so we can ship the Zines to them. We ship all over the world and can provide you with a tracking number.

You can find our printing and shipping prices in the next section of this page.

Price: Our printing and shipping prices are incredibly economic. If you come from a country where those costs are high, our services will definitely  allow you to save a lot of money. In any case, you can always check your local print shop and decide which one works best for you!

Convenience: You won’t have to lose sleep thinking about finding a print shop that does exactly what you want, worry about the printing quality, look for specific templates, accumulate boxes full of Zines in your home, write down all the adresses or take several trips to the post office. We take care of all of that, thus taking a big weight and responsability off your shoulders. Our goal is to make Zine projects less scary and more accessible by taking care of all the logistics.

Safety and Transparency: We are a 30 year-old stablished company with great reputation and experience in the distribution and publishing sector. We inform of the costs, times, send pictures and videos of the products and don’t ask for payment until the project is printed and ready to get sent.

Time-saving: We take take care of printing and shipping, something that could take you days to finish. Thanks to that, you save a great amount of time that you can use to be creative, promote the Zine in diferent platforms, post beautiful previews and more.

Process
All the steps

Here we explain all the steps you must take to work with us. We are fast, helpful and provide any information you might need.

1.We give you the price before you start your project

If you want to organize a Zine, you just need to fill in our form and tell us how many colored pages and how many text pages your zine is going to have. We will reply with a price, this way you will be able to organize your project better without any surprises.

2.Use our templates for your illustrations and stories

To make it easier for you to adjust your Zine for print, we have templates that you can download and share with your collaborators. It will save you a lot of time and you will know there won’t be any margin mistakes. We will send you the templates once you are okay with our prices.

3.Send us the Zine File

Once you have finished the Zine, you can send us the PDF file, we will print one single copy and send a video and pictures to you to make sure everything is correct. This way, if there are any color, order or grammatical mistakes you will be able to fix them in time. If a video is not enough, we can always send you the first copy.

4.Shipping: save money, space, time and work

In many cases, Zine organizers get all the stock sent to their own home since they are the ones in charge of sending it to the clients. In our case, as a print and shipping company, we are able to send your Zines, saving you money, space, time and extra work. 

5.Payment at the end

We will inform you about the printing and shipping costs from the start, but the payment won’t be asked until all the zines are printed and ready to get shipped. This way, you only need to do one single payment and can use the preorder money. With this method, we make sure that there are no monetary loses. 

6.Not only Zines

If you want to print something else besides a Zine like a calendar, bookmark, coloring book, novel or any product of that sort, tell us in the form below and we will give you all the information you need. Also, if you want to include prints and bookmarks in your Zine bundle we can take care of that as well.

example & SHIPPING PRICES
An example Case
  • You put your Zine on preorder for $40, shipping included.
  • 250 customers pay the preorder. You have now $10.000.
  • You tell us to print 250 copies of that Zine. That would be a cost of $3.82 for each Zine. In total: $955.
  • Shipping costs are around $23. Shipping it to 250 people would cost $5.750.
  • You end up with $3.295 of benefits.

As you can see, as long as the price of your physical Zine covers printing and shipping (+ $27) you will always gain benefits that you can use to pay your collaborators or send towards a charity.

Most Zines have a high cost and very little -if any- benefits. That’s why we want to help all creators with an easy, effective and smooth option that will not only give great results, but will also take care of everything.
