Introducing – WheelBite Magazine!
Join us Saturday August 26th, 2017 at MacClean Park in Lake Jackson, TX for our very first “Back 2 Skool Sk8 Jam” / WheelBite Magazine Launch Party! This local fanzine idea has been one of our side projects under development pretty much since the day we launched GEAR Skateboards… And our first issue is almost ready!
The concept of WheelBite Magazine is to simply develope an original new local zine, geared towards our own local and regional skate/music/DIY community, from all different crews and styles and teams (not just the GEAR team)… We’ll also be mixing in some local music reviews and other cool stuff while we’re at it… just something fun and something real, made for skaters by skaters.
The first issue is a straight up creative experiment, and will be a humble “pilot” issue one.
As such, it will be a FREE publication…
It will be 5.5″ wide x 8.5″ tall (half-size zine), full color (300dpi CMYK), with a matte finish, and will be 12-16 pages minimum each issue. The base print run of each issue will be 500 copies.
We are hoping to publish 2 – 4 issues per year as we grow our operations, our content, begin to interview and feature more skaters, host more local events, etc.
Copies of Wheelbite Magazine come with a random sticker pack, and will be included with each one of our board and t-shirt sales beginning this fall! Our team will also begin distributing free copies to any and all skate shops we visit, and to any other small businesses who may be interested.
We currently have FREE AD SPACE available to skate teams, brands, shops, and related businesses from around the greater Lake Jackson, TX area, but space is limited!!
Ad submission deadline is August 1oth!!
