How It Works

How does Online Canzine Work? Great question.

Buying Zines:

✿ Check out the different vendors in all the different worlds! We have vendors from all over the world, selling many different types and genres of work.

✿ Found something you like? Add it to your cart!

✿ Want to buy from multiple vendors? No worries, just add them all to your order and check out.


✿  Once the festival ends, the zinesters send us their work and then we pack up your orders and send them to you. This way, you can order from many different vendors and all your purchases will come at the same time.

✿ Please remember that we’re a small team working with lots of vendors! We’re working hard to get your purchases to you, but please keep in mind it will take several weeks.


✿ Canzine has some great events and programming happening! Check out the “events” tab on the website.

How can I support Canzine?

✿ Promote the festival and our amazing vendors on your social media!

✿ Share the link to your fav stores with your friends.

✿ Consider adding a tip or a donation to the Canzine fest! It helps us keep the event running and lets us share the zine world with y
