An indie magazine for paper lovers

Pouch is an independent fanzine about paper and stationery βœ‚οΈ It features journaling ideas, product reviews, DIYs, and more!

Currently, Pouch is written, designed, illustrated, and produced by a one-person team, i.e. me! It is a passion project and a labor of love πŸ’– I am a huge fan of paper and stationery, and I thought, what better way to share a love of paper than through a paper medium: magazines!

The first-ever issue of Pouch is about 80% complete (see detailed status below) and is slated to ship in Spring 2024.

Issue #1 features...

  • Pouch Picks: Stationery products to buy and try
  • Review(s) of paper-related products
  • Stationery problem-solving
  • Journaling inspiration
  • A DIY on how to make your own Kuchipatchi coaster
  • A gallery of journal layouts (add yours!)
  • And more!

Sneak peek

Here are a few pages from Pouch:

Product details

  • Staple-bound A5 (5.8" x 8.3") booklet
  • Printed in full-color
  • Over 20 pages of content (final page count TBD)


  • To minimize shipping costs, Pouch will be shipped via USPS and will not offer tracking.
  • I am still figuring out to what extent I will be able to support international shipping for Pouch. Therefore, preorders are currently limited to US & Canada. Thank you for understanding πŸ’–

Project status

  • January 2024: Pouch issue #1 is about 80% complete, with 22 pages of content so far! I have printed copies of a preview issue of Pouch that I am currently distributing to early readers for feedback, and I am also collecting community contributions for the final zine. If all goes well, the final designs for Pouch Issue #1 should be ready by mid-March, which should allow production & distribution in April/May 2024. Exact dates may change, though!
