Color Photocopying

Our two color copiers allow us to copy from your paper originals or print directly from your electronic files. The machines can duplex and staple in several positions as well as produce fully collated and saddle-stitched booklets on 8 1/2 by 11 or 11 by 17 paper.

Binding

We offer several methods for binding your documents.  Please check with the duplicating staff about which method would best serve your needs, based on the look you want and the number of pages in your "book."

Spiral binding

Spiral bindings are made of plastic and allow books to be laid open flat. They are commonly used to bind manuals and workbooks.

Up to 100 pages $1.50
101 to 200 pages $2.00
201 to 350 pages $2.50
351 to 500 pages $3.00

Cloth Binding

251 to 350 pages $2.00

Special Covers

Perfect Binding

Perfect binding uses a wraparound cardstock cover with a result like a bound catalogue. A perfect bound document costs $2.50 for the binding, with materials an extra charge.

 

Saddle Stitching

For a near-perfect bound look, our finisher can produce saddle stitched books with a squared spine, but it incorporates stapling. This is a cheaper option than perfect binding, but there is a page limit of 25 11x17 sheets (100 pages).
