Attention zinesters, artists and readers alike! We are only two days away from reaching our $500 goal on Kickstarter. We have $120 of our $500. Thank you very much to everyone who contributed. It means a lot! Here is an explanation of the pledge amounts and incentives:
If you pledge $5… you are entitled to one food option from our delicious local caterer. You also get some neato bragging rights for supporting our cause and a sweet handwritten thank-you note sent to your home with love!
If you pledge $10… you will receive all the aforementioned rewards, along with a handcrafted, letterpressed certificate of our finest approval. We recommend framing it and putting in your office, or your make-believe office at in your bedroom, next to your boy band posters.
If you pledge $15… you will receive all the aforementioned rewards, along with a sweet handmade patch and button set. Every stitch is made with 100% pure love. Honest!
However, if the goal is not fulfilled, no one gets these awesome items delivered to their homes! (Fear not though, we’ll probably have them at the fest, anyway.)
Hey guys! Just reminding you that our Kickstarter page is up and ready (with only two more weeks to reach our goal)! Thank you very much to Kenny Amato, Edward Dermody, and A.j. Michel for a total donation of $50.00 towards our cause. Our goal is to get a panelist of rad speakers, poets, zinesters, underground newspaper artists and writers to add to our festival. Thank you for all your support. Please tell your friends about the fest!
Hey guys! I was just dropping by to say, please check out our Kickstarter page. You can help us out and get yourself some pretty cool stuff in return! Our goal for this is $500. If we don’t reach it, you get your money back. Thanks for all your support and see you in a few months!
Hello fellow zinesters and artists alike and welcome to the start of the third annual Scranton Zine Fest in the heart of the downtown Electric City. The zine fest team has been working to bring you the best experience possible. Every year, Dana Marie, Brian and I sit down and talk about what went well about the previous year and what we could work on.
This year, it was pretty much a general consensus that the tables do need to be pre-ordered. To better serve you, we put easy buttons at the end of the zinester and artist forms. It will take you to the PayPal website where it will ask you to make a “donation.” This will be your payment for your table. If you don’t have a PayPal account right now, I highly suggest creating one. It makes transactions like these way easier. This will also be a first-come, first-serve basis so please sign up as soon as possible to reserve your spot. There will be only 24 tables! This does not mean 24 people necessarily; it depends who gets a half table. If by any chance you cannot make it, please email or call one of us so we can clear up your spot.
Another change we’re making is about food. We want to give you more options. There will be vegetarian and vegan choices in addition to this year’s menu. We will be sending the menu along in your care packages so you can get an idea of what food we will be offering. I’d also like some more of your opinions about how we had our runners going to get you food. Did you like this idea? How can we help serve you better with the whole food thing?
Lastly, if you’re feeling a little generous, we will be establishing a Kickstarter page to help fund some costs of the festival. There’s a lot of money that goes towards advertising in general as well as fees for the venue and labor costs so any help is appreciated. You’ll get some pretty nifty swag in return, though. More posts will be made about that later when I have it up and running.
Special thanks to the Pocono Arts Council and our legislators for funding our endeavors in the art community. We greatly appreciate your support.
