People's Photocopier

People's Photocopier

A photocopier sits next to a table with zine-making supplies.

We are dedicated to keeping the cost of copies low and providing an alternative to corporate copy shops. Corporate media and publishing continue to concentrate and streamline the power of communication. As amateurs, non-professionals, artists, writers and activists of all kinds, we need to collectively fight for the ability to self-publish our zines and posters, to promote our events, to spread our word.

Location and open hours

Located at RadStorm, the copier is open for anyone to use for any project. It's accessible on Sundays from 2-6pm and Wednesdays from 12-7pm and during public events at RadStorm.
