Coin-Operated Press is a queer-led social enterprise run by Chloe Henderson & Katie McCann. We are based in Scotland, where we host workshops, run zine fairs, create online educational content, and produce, publish, and distribute collaborative zines.
We value intersectional feminist culture and we’re especially interested in working with the LGBTQ + community, and those with chronic illnesses and disabilities.
We welcome people of all genders, sexualities, ages, races, abilities, and backgrounds to get involved in Coin-Operated Press.
We strive to be as sustainable and environmentally friendly in our zine-making practice and at the events we run – upcycling is our jam!!
What is a zine? A zine is a booklet-style artwork that you make yourself, and give away, swap, or sell for the cost of printing. Zines enable adaptable learning and provide a creative outlet that can be accessed by anyone regardless of experience or skill level.
We believe everybody is an artist, and all you need are the right tools and a little encouragement to have your voice heard in your own handmade publication.
