What is INK?

INK is the trade association of the radical and alternative press in the UK. As well as this website, INK is involved in a number of other projects that aim to raise awareness of the alternative media.

The INK Leaflet

Each year INK publishes a leaflet of Special Subscription Offers. The leaflet allows readers of one INK publication to find out about many of our other titles and subscribe to them at special rates.

The same Special Offers are available on the INK website where you can order securely. However, if you want to receive a copy of the latest leafet in the post, please email us, or write to the address above.

INK Distribution

INK distributes a range of titles to a number of shops throughout the UK. Email us to find out if there is an outlet near you, or if you know a shop that could become an outlet for INK magazines.

Fairs and Events

INK regularly appears at fairs, festivals and other events to promote its members and raise awareness of the alternative media.


The INK Business Plan

INK hopes to expand into a full service publishing company to handle the business side for its member magazines, leaving them to do what they are best at - telling the truth as they see it.

See the outline of the Business Plan.


Could YOU be a potential INK member?
We are always keen to hear from magazines (or planned magazines) interested in joining INK. Membership can be as little as £35 a year.

Print out this membership form, fill it in and send it to us along with a copy of your magazine (or mock-up if it is only planned) if you would like to be considered.

Members can log in here.

Note: INK does not accept titles which promote violence beyond traditional means of protest.
