The Burgundy Zine Merch Store
Let Us Introduce Ourselves
The Burgundy Zine is a blog and bi-monthly digital magazine that centers itself around a different theme each issue. Our platform has become an online space for content creators to broadcast their voices to our large, global audience of readers for free.
Throughout our content, you’ll find yourself immersed in science, art, and music, from research and feature stories to interviews with industry professionals.
Originally, The Burgundy Zine was intended to be a 15-page monthly magazine, but our community has grown so abundantly that our last few issues have been over 100 pages, motivating our switch to a bi-monthly format in 2020.
The Burgundy Zine Merch Store Campaign
It's our priority to see through that our community continues to grow and blossom. In our eyes, The Burgundy Zine Merch Store will allow us to sustain our online community while giving our audience a tangible piece of ourselves. We also see The Burgundy Zine Merch Store expanding as another platform for us to collaborate with artists and musicians to help promote and sell their work.
In the long run, we hope The Burgundy Zine Merch Store will enable us to begin printing physical copies of our digital magazine. We're often asked by our readers and contributors how they can obtain a physical copy of The Burgundy Zine, and considering that we're a self-funded publication, we're currently only able to provide free copies of The Burgundy Zine digitally.
We're aiming to change that. The Burgundy Zine will still publish digital copies of our magazine for free, and our merch store will provide us an avenue to move forward with printing The Burgundy Zine – if not every issue, then at least on a quarterly basis.
What's In Stores For The Burgundy Zine Merch Store?
Upon launch, we plan on releasing digital and physical stickers, original artworks, prints, hand-made cards, art commissions, and t-shirts.
As the shop continues to expand, so will our inventory. We are also interested in selling pins, buttons, hats, key chains, accessories, music, e-books, and print copies of The Burgundy Zine.
Giving back to the community is one of our core values at The Burgundy Zine. We would also like to release series of products where a portion of the proceeds are donated to non-profit organizations.
