Products

 

Q: What is a Zine? 

A:  Zines (z-ee-n) are independent publications— much like magazines —that typically have a small distribution. They come in all shapes, sizes, and genres and have become a big part of our popular culture due to their ability for zine makers (zinesters) to freely express themselves and share ideas.
 
 
 

 

Q: Do you sell gift cards?

Yes! We do. Gift cards are available in a variety of denominations from $5 - $20 to suit any budget and can be used on all zines, journals, and workbooks available in our online store. For more details visit the thankubody Zines Gift Card.

Orders and Shipping

 

Q: Do you ship internationally? 

A: Yes, we ship zines worldwide from California, USA. Please visit our shipping and delivery page for more info. 

 

Q: How long will it take to receive my zine? 

A: Our zines are shipped via United States Postal Service (USPS) within 1-2 business days and delivery timeframe range between 3-5 business days for U.S. orders, and 9-21 business days for international orders. 

 

Q: Does my order come with a tracking number? 

A: Many of our smaller zines are sent via USPS First Class Mail so they don't come with tracking. This keeps the shipping pricing nice and accessible for our customers. Larger zine orders sent via USPS First Class Package mail or USPS Priority Mail will come with tracking. This tracking information will be sent via your order confirmation email when your order is shipped.   

We've found both USPS mail and package services to be very reliable but rest assured if there are ever any issues with the delivery of your zines we will resend them. 


General Inquiries

Q: Will you distribute my zine?

A: If you have a positive zine on a topic relating to mental health, body image, or self-care that you think would be a good fit, we'd love to hear from you.

We are interested in many types of zines, including; comic zines, per-zines (personal zines), and we love workbook zines. We operate on a wholesale model and are limited to the number of titles that we can pick up at any time. But rest assured, we will do our best to support your zine and hard work if it fits our mission. If you'd like to send a sample zine for consideration, please mail it to:
