Papercut is getting ready for our big move!

TAGS: None

We are in the midst of building shelving and other furniture and should be all ready for visitors as early as this month.

Please keep checking back or join our email list for updates on the official ~grand opening~

We’re so excited to have everyone back to check out zines again!

We’re still here!! Seriously!

Oh, shoot. We’ve been doing our best to keep everyone in-the-know about current Papercut happenings, but our best sometimes leaves our website in the dark. There was a fire in our building in March, and while our dear library was luckily untouched by the flames (and by the sprinklers which flooded most other units), we’ve been in a constant battle with the city and our landlord to be allowed back into the space.

We will be opening occasionally over the next few weeks, but are unsure about our regular schedule. The best way to find out is to add us on Facebook or Twitter, or to email or text message us to schedule an appointment.

Another way to view our lovely zines is to check out one of our “Pop-Ups in the Park” events, happening throughout the summer. Or, let us know if you have an event or space you’d like to have a pop-up library at! We will bring 150ish zines with us for you to browse, along with some current zines and merch to buy!

Finally, I’d like to present a short slideshow highlighting our ~forever home~ dreams, in case you all come across a space that may work for us.

Pop-Up Library at New England Zine Fest this Saturday

TAGS: None

We will be bringing about a hundred zines for you to read :) Come hang out!

Bye Bye Lorem Ipsum, Hello Allston!

TAGS: None

As far as this librarian can tell, all 15,000+ of our dear zines have made it over the river to Allston and are in-tact and even in some semblance of order!

Although we are mostly out of Lorem Ipsum, you can STILL return zines there (@1299 Cambridge St. Cambridge) until August 1st (please do that!). After that, ideally you will see us at an event, come over to the new (temporary) space during our sporadic open hours, ask us to open by appointment, or even mail those babies to us direct.

There is now a spot on our homepage with a list of our summer events. Come see us at the New England Zine Fest in August, and don’t forget about the big community meeting on July 23rd. We wanna know what you wanna see in Papercut’s next space. We wanna feed you snacks and talk about our other locations.

OK! As always, email us or text us with any questions. Over and out.

Please return your zines!

Reminder: PLEASE BRING BACK YR ZINES!! We will be packing this week and need all our zines back before the move. If you can’t bring them back this week, please let us know so we can tell you the address of our next location. We can accept zines at Lorem Ipsum until August 1st, technically. But for real please come by this weekend or be in touch. Thanks!

Papercut is MOVING Out of Lorem Ipsum

Tags: ,

Dearest Patrons:

After nearly three amazing years functioning out of Lorem Ipsum Books, Papercut will begin packing our collection to move out on July 14th.  The book store will be undergoing many changes over the next few months, but we’ll recall fondly our time at Lorem Ipsum, which brought us many opportunities for growth and collaboration and made our library much more accessible to folks previously unacquainted with zines.
***We will be ending circulation of our zines immediately in preparation for our next move, and ask that all patrons bring in zines that they have out!***

***Our collection may be in storage for a while initially, but we will continue to be active with regular events, pop-up libraries, and workshops!***

If you have energy, ideas, time, or questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us! We would love any and all help and feedback about what you would like to see from our next space. We plan on holding a community meeting sometime in July and invite everyone to attend, whether you have ideas to share or simply want to stay in the loop.
We thank you all for your support! Papercut has now been around for over 9 years, collecting over 15,000 zines, and serving over 1,600 devoted zinesters like yourselves. We know that this move will only help Papercut continue to grow and we are very excited for what will come next.
