Support us in our new zine-dom! The PDFs will always be available but we will email them to you monthly, and you will be contributing to our continued efforts and paper budget. In exchange, we can give you crossword hints and secret Helsinki tips.

Sign up to receive Salarakas every month for a whole year in your mailbox! This option is great if you:
  • like to spend larger amounts of money at one time
  • want to encourage us to keep cranking out issues
  • want to gift Salarakas to a friend!
Patreon is based on recurring monthly payments so here's the tricky part:
you will be charged immediately and then you need to immediately cancel your pledge. If you don't cancel, we will remind you before you're billed on the 1st.
If this is a gift, please message us. With this option, you can order in multiples of 60 if you have lots of friends too, and we will email you right away for all of their particulars: email address and schedule of gifting are the most important! If you know their physical address, we can already send their first issue as a surprise with a special note of the gifter and subscription. If this is for Christmas/Hanukkah/Winter Solstice, please order by 15/12 to ensure timely delivery. 
Contact us if you would like to instead order a monthly subscription via Mobilepay or Paypal or if you have any questions. <3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3

About Salarakas

Salarakas, "secret lover" in Finnish, is humbly inspired by The Secret Admirer from Philadelphia. We hope that we can continue the same feeling of generosity, sincerity, and freedom of their form of the zine. In loving memory of the creator David Otter, who I only felt like I knew.
We’re here for the weirdos, the outliers, the misfits. We like speaking finglish, our little corner of Hel, making friends, and random acts of kindness.    
Here, you can join our club by downloading a PDF of Salarakas or subscribing to receive the monthly zine by post wherever you live.

Find monthly mixtapes in Youtube or Spotify.
