About Adult Juice Box

Hi. We’re Philip and Liam, and we make a zine about wine called Adult Juice Box. With Adult Juice Box, we’re able to explore ideas in wine that democratize this adult juice, like subjecting canned wine to real scrutiny, and giving people the vocabulary to find wine they like without having to live in a monastery in Napa for five years. We've mostly been distributing our zine in physical stores like Decant and Green Apple Books, as well as through our Patreon.



We want to keep exploring wine through zines and other print media; we have dreams to do more. We want to continue pushing on what can be done with the zine format, especially when it comes to wine. We want to keep pushing on what we do with the design of zine, and make the visuals as important as the words we’re writing.



And we want to use what we’ve learned to provide publishing and collaboration for independent artists around the Bay Area and beyond.So for our next issue, we’re going to do something a little strange: We’re going to buy a risograph, and start a print shop.

You're going to do what now?


Adult Juice Box is going to buy a Risograph to print our next issue, and we want your help to do so. Risography is a method of printing that is inexpensive and produces beautiful colors in a rich yet limited palette. It looks beautiful and it has some quirks that give it a hand-made immediacy that we love. Risography isn’t an uncommon method of printing independent art and zines, but there aren’t as many as you might think available to artists in the Bay Area, and we think having more available is a community good.



Where are y’all doing this?

We’re based in the Bay Area, and have a hold on a space in the North Beach neighborhood of San Francisco.

Who are you working with?

We’re working with local illustrators from the Bay Area and Portland, who we’ve commissioned to make riso-printed backer rewards for all y’all.

Gill Dreher is an illustrator based out of Oakland, CA. Her favorite subjects are interesting people, ghosts, and her dog Rooney. When she's not doodling on her iPad you can find her sewing with scraps, cooking macaroni and cheese, or lounging outside with animals. See more work at www.gill-d.com or on instagram @theresgill.



Lindsay Santiago is a Florida-born, San Francisco-based illustrator whose work focuses on simple geometric shapes, pattern, and repetition. An avid photographer of nature and architecture, she likes to work from her own reference photos. You can see her work at www.lindsaysantiago.com and on Instagram @lindsantiago.



Ren (Reinelaren) is a lesbian illustrator and designer in Portland OR who also creates comics.



What do we get for being patrons?

You’re going to get so much y’all.

Let’s start with the highest tier: The One of Everything.

If you back this tier, you get everything from the lower tiers: You get a evening with Philip and Liam when the Risograph is installed, you get your name etched into the Risograph, you get tickets to the events, you get all the prints and PDFs, but you also get something special: You get a copy of everything we print on the Risograph. Forever. It will be part of the standard contract for all artists we work with that one copy of whatever we print for them will be made at no cost to them and sent to the backers of this tier. Every month you’ll receive a box of everything we printed. Forever. It’s $100/month, and there’s only 10 of them available.

$100: One of everything

If you back this $100 tier, you get a special piece of risograph art each month, you get everything from the lower tiers, and you get free access to two events: A special evening with Philip and Liam for you and a guest, and tickets to another event to be named later. You have to get yourself to the Bay Area to claim these, but the events will be all expenses paid once you get there.

$50: All the Art that’s Fit to Print

If you back this $50 tier, you get everything from the lower tiers, plus a copy of all issues of the zine up to print date. This will be one of the last times to get the earlier editions of the zine, after this they will be retired to the archive. You’ll get all the zine issues, plus all the PDFs, plus all the limited edition prints we’re commissioning from artists to print on the Risograph.

$25: Zinesters, come out to play

If you back this tier, you get a physical copy of the next issue of the Adult Juice Box Zine, plus a physical copy of one other back issue of your choice, plus PDFs of all issues to date. You'll also receive one other zine we print each month.

$10: Sommelier! Your finest zine, please.

If you back this tier, you get a physical copy of the next issue of the Adult Juice Box Zine, plus PDFs of all the zines to date.

$5: Wine cyberpunk

If you back this tier, you get digital copies of all the issues of the Adult Juice Box Zine, including the issue that will be our first print on the risograph.

Lifetime goals

We also have one special lifetime goal: The first time you reach $100 total in backing, we'll carve your name into the machine. If you're close by, we'll let you carve it yourself.

Didn't y'all have a Kickstarter?

We were going to run a Kickstarter to buy a Risograph to support ourselves and artists in the Bay Area, but then Kickstarter did this:

So we're doing it our way, and we want you with us.
Goals
