Shipping FAQ

Where is DERIVE Wanderer Magazine Printed?

The first ever edition of DERIVE Wanderer was printed at the 24-hour Kinkos on Meiji-dori in Shibuya. It was on the way to Ebisu and just across the road from a curry rice place that I frequented. I used to bike down to the Kinkos late at night when the computers were free and print off a few of the magazines at a time and trim the pages and staple it together myself. From Edition 2 I worked with a print house in Tokyo who was able to print and bind the magazines and this streamlined the process. Most recently the magazine format has grown and is now being printed and produced at the end of the world in New Zealand.
