As a fellow minicomic maker, I can say that that is one of the worst/scariest feelings in the world.

Noooooooooooooooooooo! Just say its a special edition one and whoever finds it gets the GOLDEN MISSING PAGE!

Extra pages suck! Or when one comic is missing a page, so there's another comic with two of the same pages.

I still don't understand why people fold first then staple. If you staple first, it helps you have a nice clean line, it makes the crease centered, it makes it easier to staple and you're reducing your workload by only folding once, not twice.

I also never cut my mini-comics. It's definitely worth the $2 to have Staples cut them with their big cutting machine.

yeah josh, but how do you know where the middle is if you don't fold first? you just staple where you think is the middle? and you HAVE to cut off the end after you fold and staple so you have a nice clean edge

I just set my long-arm stapler for 4.25". It might take one or two trials to get it right in the center, but after that, the bracket on the stapler won't move so I know I have a center staple.

Patented Spina Doodles bug-eyes! Yes!

And that tip about setting the stapler before folding is genius!

Exclamation points!!!

haha yeah i never use that place-holder bracket thing on my stapler.... i always just staple by eye. I will def try it that way next time! but you still have to cut the edge off so the middle pages don't stick out...
