Cut and paste is a production technique in which words and images are culled from various sources and combined on a master flat. The phrase is also commonly used to describe a zine's layout.

The cut and paste technique may be used independently or in conjunction with digital layout (computer layout) techniques while creating a zine.

Images and backgrounds are pulled from fliers, magazines or the insides of security envelopes.

Some zinesters would argue that a physical cut and paste approach is the only legitimate one, while other zinesters rely on newer computer page layout programs.
