Zine-o-Matic hasn't added a story.
Snail Mail Press wants to make it easy to find and support underground indie artists from the world over!
With your help, we’ll be creating a global monthly snail-mail subscription box featuring unusual and rare underground art - from zines and prints to stickers and pins.
For years Noah, who runs Zine-o-Matic, has been scouring neighborhood bookstores for cool artists and skulking around zine fests for funky art finds. The result - Zine-o-Matic has built a worldwide network of indie artists who are pursuing their passion of creating weirdo art.
And now we need your help tapping into this network so that talented artists can reach a new audience, and so YOU can get the best that the underground art community has to offer.
What can I expect to find in a Snail Mail box?
I'm glad you asked, my little cabbage! This is the beauty of a Snail Mail Press box. It's customizable! You tell us what medium of art you prefer, and how much of it!
So one month's box could have:
- Up to 3 art prints
- Up to 3 different stickers
- Up to 3 weird zines
- Up to 2 funky pins
Take a gander at the kinds of fun things we'll be carrying:
Why help create Snail Mail Press?
Great indie art is so hard to find, and it often doesn’t leave the cities it was created in. This makes it difficult to discover new art from cool artists outside your area. And difficult for talented indie artists to reach new people.
That's where Snail Mail Press comes in! Noah and the Snail Mail Press team will bring underground art directly to YOU. Literally. It'll just show up at your door.
Snail Mail Press will be THE place to get curated zines and art paraphernalia. And it'll give you power. Lots of power. Perhaps even unprecedented power. The power to choose what kind of art to get - zines, prints, pins, or stickers, or all of it - and how much of it!
Why should you trust us to supply you with great art?
Because we've been doing that very thing for the past seven years with Zine-o-Matic , THE monthly zine subscription box. Seriously check us out we're a real thing. Kind of a big deal. Just in case you missed it, here's a video of an unboxing with the kinds of things that might be in your Snail Mail Press Box.
Your Contributions will be used for:
- Fairly compensating indie artists for their craft
- Inventory, inventory, and more inventory! All of the art included in Snail Mail Press boxes needs to be sourced, in stock, and ready to go before the packages can be sent out
- A professional web designer with magical powers
- The occasional exclusive Snail Mail Press commissions by super cool artists
- Packaging, packaging, and more packaging so the art arrives to your doorstep safe and sound
How often will you ship out the boxes?
Once a month on the 1st of every month.
When will you ship out the rewards?
The first Snail Mail Press box will be shipped on the 1st of October. Other rewards will be shipped much earlier.
What countries do you deliver to?
We will be delivering worldwide at launch, but currently we can only ship to the United States.
Am I going to get an original Picasso painting?
Umm, no. We’ll be supporting indie underground artists.
Risks and challenges
I’ve been running Zine-o-Matic for 7 years, so I don’t expect to have too many hiccups when creating Snail Mail Press. I’m going to work hard to limit any shipping and packaging snafuus, so the only major risk could be a delay in everyone getting their rewards. I’ve been shipping out zines on time for years, so I’m not expecting problems in this department.
There is also the small risk that getting a Snail Mail Press box will make you incredibly more attractive to people of every gender.
Thank you from the Snail Mail Press Team.
