We want to give a huge THANK YOU to our sponsors this year!! They're all great businesses, organizations, and programs in Phoenix that are worth checking out and supporting! They're a huge part of our community and help the PHX Zine Fest be as big and as bright as possible.
Steady Glow Digital
Steady Glow Digital supports business with a conscience with website content, digital strategy, creative and site management. We love supporting small businesses offering solutions to some of our biggest problems including organics, renewables, solar energy and sustainable living. Zines have the tendency to work at these problems as well and show the independent and resourceful spirit needed to make real change in our society. Our business exists to unravel the mystery of online visibility and understandable content that makes businesses working in sustainability more effective at sharing their message or product. We have over 20 years experience in graphic design, writing, project management, and website management available to help small businesses get better exposure online. We’re so happy to be sponsoring the Phx Zine Fest and helping to make it a virtually waste-free event!
