Coin-Operated Press CIC

Coin-Operated Press CIC is an artist-led social enterprise run by Chloe Henderson. We are based in Scotland, where we facilitate creative workshops, host zine fairs, manage the DJCAD Zine Library, create educational zine content, and produce, publish, and distribute collaborative zines every month.


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. They are perfect for sharing information, art, writing, and anything you can fit on a piece of paper!


We value intersectional feminist culture and we’re especially interested in working with the LGBTQ + community, and those with chronic illnesses and disabilities. Zine culture is all about diversity and 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 as possible in our zine-making practice and at the events we run – upcycling is our jam!!


We believe everybody is an artist, and all you need are the right tools and a little encouragement to have your voice heard in our community-made zines or your own handmade publications created in our workshops.
