long overdue update.

this is so embarrassing.. today i realised all the new stuff i got for and at northwest zinefest was still in my drafts, and i hadn’t actually ‘published’ any of the product pages! no wonder no one had bought any of the new stuff! jesus christ, what am i like? can i blame my absent mindedness on the crowdfunder and photocopier business?

BACK IN STOCK = support trans lives badge

speaking of which, the photocopier is here! thank you so much for everyone who supported the crowdfunder and/or shared posts about it. we couldn’t have done it without you. i haven’t got the rewards sorted yet, but i will get to them soon, i promise <3

there’s lots of really cool workshops and talks this year, i hope i can make some of them this year (i always end up spending the whole day at my table somehow because either it’s too busy or i’m too lazy to move or both) can’t wait to see everyone there, and i have lots of new stock coming in for it. some of it even has arrived already, and i’ve added them into the catalog already. i guess technically these aren’t new, because i’ve had them in stock before, but let’s not be pedantic!

BACK IN STOCK = telegram #35, critical breakfast #1/telegram #38, telegram #39, telegram #40, telegram #41

LONG LIVE VAMPIRE HAG

hello hello hello. welcome to Vampire Hag distro, the zine distro with a bite, previously known as Vampire Sushi Distro. it’s still pretty much the same old zine distro, it just has a new name and a new improved home. oh and it’s gonna be bigger and better and do more stuff, or not. we shall see, but i have plans! i’ll tell you about those when the time comes though. in the meantime though, we have lots of new stock for you.

NEW IN STOCK – a light that never goes out, all the best cowboys have daddy issues, bottled, brainscan #33, living the no maintenance lifestyle, tear the petals off of you, whatstheirname, your pretty face is going straight to hell #25., + a whole lot of badges and stickers!

BACK IN STOCK – here. in my head #15, here. in my head #18, your pretty face is going straight to hell #21, your pretty face is going straight to hell #23½.

we have a whole lot of new badges and stickers and we will be donating all the proceeds from some of them (the pronoun badges + support trans lives stickers & badges) to Mermaids UK.

to celebrate this whole new name, new website thing, we’re also having a little bit of a sale. you can get 10% off with the code OPENING10 until the end of february.

i suppose you might be wondering why i’ve gone and changed the name of the distro. i’ve been semi-wanting to change it for a few years actually, but it’s taken me a long time to come up with the new name. it just hasn’t felt quite right for a long time, it was just the first thing we (me & my partner carl) thought of, and though i still love vampires, the sushi part hasn’t felt appropriate for a while especially since i’m a white european person who doesn’t even eat sushi. no one has ever said anything about cultural appropriation regarding the name (at least not to me) but it has made me feel uncomfortable for at least over year and it was about time i did something about it. i had known i wanted to change the name for about a year but it took a while to come up with the new name, feel good about it and then gather the courage to go ahead and change it for real. Weirdo Zine Fest (leeds, 9th february) was our first outing under the new name and it was so good! i picked up so many new zines to read (possibly a bigger stack than all the zine fests i did last year put together!) i feel like i’ve been putting off things i wanted to do with the distro because i knew i was going to eventually change the name and what was the point doing something big until i had done it.
