Pixel was originally titled Catchpenny Gazette, and the first issue was distributed through FAPA in January, 2004. Fifteen issues of Catchpenny Gazette, or CPG as it became known, were published through March 2006. The name was then changed to Pixel to reflect a change in appearance (no longer 'pretending' to be a print zine using an 8 1/2 x 11 portrait format, now published in 8 1/2 x 11 horizontal format for easier reading on-screen; and a change in overall look from a pastiche of art nouveau/art deco to a more modern appearance), although for the most part the contributors and material remained the same.

Pixel appears towards the end of each month, and typically features a regular group of columns:

Issues usually run 25-30 pages. In 2005 CPG was voted third best zine in the FAAn Awards voting that year. In 2006, Pixel placed second for the same award.
