MAIL ORDER ZINES

In 2021, Barely Human ran a [online subscription conglomerate] mail order service featuring zine-based discussions accompanied by free cassette tapes, merch items and the like.. mailing out to 50+ subscribers spread across Australia, New Zealand, the US and UK, Germany and Italy. It was very nice! 

In 2022, due to capital L ~life~ Barely Human can't commit to regular deliveries, so it's transitioning to a mail order service through the very dodgy looking (but believe me, completely legitimate insofar as [behemoth digital payment service] can claim fiscal legitimacy) online shopping buttons below this contents table. 

Add your items bit by bit (it's annoying I know) and it'll build a [behemoth digital payment service] cart for you, resulting in payment and thus: delivery (more on that at the bottom).

PLEASE NOTE: Postage for each item is set for within Australia at AUD$3.69 and will tally per item. For international orders, please add the (somewhat under-priced considering-the-state-of-shipping-lately) International Postage option that I'm hoping will all work out in the end in a 'what is money anyway' kinda way.
