It’s nearly xmas

Which means it’s nearly the 6 year anniversary of Take Care! In the lead up to the new year we’ll be announcing a lot of little giveaways and posting up some things from our archive. Here’s a couple of announcements we made to Facebook and Instagram a few days ago…follow us at or takecarezinedistro on Instagram.


The next three orders of ‘Huffin’ Textas’, a zine by Sydney based art gang of two Dexter Fletcher, will receive a mini DF merch pack inspired by Jarvis Cocker, for free. It includes a risographed poster, gocco printed postcode and two colour ‘What Would Jarvis Do?’ pin-back badge. This offer is to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Pulp’s magnificent album Different Class.

Find ‘Huffin’ Textas’ on the Take Care site here.


Also, an xmas gift idea for broke zinesters: you can have an envelope stuffed full of YOU zine posted to you anywhere in the world, and you just have to pay for the postage! In Australia that’s just $1.50. We’ll chuck in some other free zines too, including the excellent ‘Friday Night in West Ealing.’ Have it sent to yourself or order one as a gift – just leave instructions for us when you check out of PayPal, and we’ll make sure it’s packaged up nicely!


New Zines! New Year?

Hello again! We’ve just added a few new zines to the site as promised.

Love letters to monsters #3/Alabama grrrl #9, Ladybeard (back in stock), Ladybeard #2: Transhairstorical, Bangor

While I’m at it, apologies to anyone who trekked out to Earlwood on the weekend hoping to catch us at the DIY Market. We had to cancel at the last minute due to the aforementioned crisis.

Now on a more positive note Little Boy (see below) has been working hard putting together a list of his favourite zines for 2010. You can check it out here.

Once again a BIG thank you to everyone who wrote us letters or emails  throughout the year, we really appreciate the effort you guys have made in getting in contact. And it’s been really great meeting folks through correspondance or zine fairs. Hopefully we’ll see some of you again in 2011. And lastly thank you to everyone whose zines we stock. We love you. See you in the new year!
