Zine Machine

Use the vending machine full of locally made printed matter before it's too late

  • Fun
  • Shops
  • Food

Get your locally crafted zines, comics and art books at Transcend's Garneau location until February 26.


For just $1.50 you can buy a copy of the printed matter from 780 distro's zine machine.

There are all kinds of topics covered and artistic styles explored. To purchase a zine, just deposit your coins and retrieve the zines like you would from a pop or candy vending machine.

But it's changing locations in March.

It'll pop-up in Allard Hall on the MacEwan University​ Campus for two weeks next month.

While it's there, a free zine making workshop is being planned. Exact dates are still TBA.

After that, the fate of the zine machine is up in the air.

That's a damn shame because it's been around since 2014.

If you know a small business in Edmonton (ideally a cafe or similar type of space) that would be interested in housing the zine machine, get in touch with 780 distro via 780distro@gmail.com, Instagram + Twitter

Have a zine you'd like to submit? Here are the guidelines:

• no larger than 4.25" x 5.5"

• 10 copies to start

• zine makers are paid $1 per copy

• no racist / sexist / transphobic / homophobic or otherwise oppressive content
