Use this template to create 4-page 1/4-sized zines using 1 sheet of letter-sized or A4-sized printer paper. Like my other zine template, you can design your zine page-by-page and then easily produce a screen-friendly and print-at-home format for your zine. It also supports the inclusion of bonus interior content, such as a poster design on the opposite side when unfolded.

The template is available in both InDesign and Affinity Publisher formats. It also includes a set of printing and assembly instructions you can include with your digital zine sales so that folks who purchase your zine can print and assemble it on their own at home.

What's Included?

  • Example Zine
    Three PDFs demonstrating the outputs of the template files: a screen compatible version of your zine, reverse content, and a print file for DIY printing and assembling of your zine.
  • Adobe InDesign Template
    A set of instructions and .indd files for building your zine using Adobe InDesign. (A set of IDML files are also included for compatibility with older versions of InDesign.) Includes templates for both A4 and Letter-sized formats.
  • Affinity Publisher Template
    A set of instructions and .afpub files for building your zine using Affinity Publisher. Includes templates for both A4 and Letter-sized formats.
  • Print and Assembly Instructions
    Two different sets of CC0 print and assembly instructions that you are welcome to include as part of your future projects without needing to provide attribution or credit to me. One for a single-sided zine and one for a double-sided zine that includes content on the reverse side. Includes print outs for both A4 and Letter-sized paper.
