Introduction to PaperNoise

PaperNoise is a family of juvenile pamphlets. 

We make zines and chapbooks.

We are interested in likeable artlike things of all shapes.

Our zines, generally, are collective, submission-based experiments.  We love music and use PaperNoise-specific mixes as the hinge-point for submissions.  The majority of submissions, we expect, will be based on this process of sound inspiration, as dictated below:

Our chapbooks are artist specific and basically, format-wise, the same as our zines.  PaperNoise chapbooks operate the same way as many chapbooks do, with a cover and pages. 

All and all, we are a simpleminded publisher of handmade, limited-edition zines and chapbooks.
