IMPORTANT NOTES, YOU COULD CALL THEM TIPS

From Steve Hockett - 'I know it sounds kinda cheesey but I've found the best resource is just talking to printers / fabricators. I've found everyone above to be really open and honest with explaining their processes to me.'

From Aaron McLaughlin - 'I would strongly recommend an A4 or A3 laser printer. Whether youre making a DIY publication or designing an expensive piece of print the laser printer is generally your right hand man. I've used laser printers for all sorts of projects. Pick one up for cheap with a decent amount of toner.. you could find a printer for £50 easy, but new toner could set you back over £200(!)'

From Aaron McLaughlin - Copy Paste Character: LINK

From Esther McManus on screen printing inks - 'I hear loads of bad press about this stuff, but I really like Permaprint inks. I got a tub of black and a tub of opaque white - they've lasted for ages, and they're super. The black has such a smooth coverage, and is quite glossy. It's very rich. The opaque white is BOSS - I just want to use it all the time. It's beautifully solid whenever I print on dark grey papers, it's pretty exciting stuff. I wouldn't use these on anything above 90T mesh (I used them on 120T and it was hard going).'

From Leon Sadler - 'I used to either find someone elses guillotine facility or cut the books by hand with a scalpel and ruler, which kind of gave shitty results. this guillotine is absolutely great and give the best best finish to books!

Lots of people are selling this exact same one: LINK

The price fluctuates quite a bit and sometimes you can get one, including postage for as little as £60 (that's what i paid for mine) it can cut through a ream of paper with ease, it can chop my arm off no problem. you just stack up all your zines and chop them in one go it's extremely satisfying to use!!!

I would advise people to avoid this... LINK...type of guillotine i tried out a few and they've all just been a total waste of time, useless.'
