SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW OPEN!

Submissions

 

Along with a short bio and appropriate subject line, please email(chrisatquarterpress@gmail.com) a completed, 16-page graphic story that’s formatted to fit one of the three templates/sizes below. (At this time, we cannot connect writers and artists.) Your submission should be a single PDF. If chosen, we will contact you for individual, print-ready files.

 

Please Note: All comics may only use ONE color beyond B/W, greyscale included. (Of course, the comic can simply be B/W, too. But we can not do full color given the format.)

 

Send your submissions to chrisatquarterpress@gmail.com.

 

The following are the three templates you may choose from. The files are slightly larger than the final book size listed below and provide “bleed guides” for your convenience. Of course, feel free to use these dimensions to create your own files:

 

Small: 4 x 2.75 inches (1200 x 825 pixels)

Medium: 5.5 x 4 inches (1650 x 1200 pixels)

Square: 4 x 4 inches (1200 x 1200 pixels)

Payment

 

If accepted and upon first printing, Quarter Press will provide five “Artist Prints” of your completed book. These are labeled as such and will not be a part of the first printing of 25, numbered editions available to the public.

 

If your book garners subsequent printing runs, each run in increments of 25, a $5 token will be paid prior to another round of printing.
