What's your side project?

Today so many people have something on the side that they do in addition to their 9 to 5 job that we saw an opportunity to showcase those side hustles, passion projects, and hobby businesses in a way that would support and encourage the people we feature and inspire those people who have been waiting in the wings to take the leap and do that thing they've always dreamed of.

5to9zine is a full color print publication that will highlight people's side projects and help other people get theirs off the ground with inspiration and wisdom from the people who have gone before them as well as with articles from thought leaders in the field who can give insight on choosing a side project, developing time management skills to make it work, finding ways to share a side project with others, as well as other relevant topics.

Our first issue will feature Joe Biel of Microcosm Publishing, Pete(r) Menchetti of StickerGuy! and Slovenly Recordings, Josh Hammond of No Love City, and more amazing people and their awesome side projects! It will be 44 pages, full-color, 1/2 size, and printed by Jakprints with eco-friendly inks. We can't wait to show it to you!

Risks and challenges

5to9zine is the brand new zine from the creators of PEEL Magazine and Surface Area Zine. We have a great deal of experience publishing zines and magazines, so we already know the ropes. This thing is totally happening. We just decided to use Kickstarter to help us streamline the preordering process and to make it easy for people to order subscriptions. In addition, we wanted to make it easy for advertisers to purchase full and 1/2 page ads.
