Does your school have a binding machine?

Since some forgotten time in the past, I've been printing whole books in school. Everyday 30-40 pages and a full book in 1-2-3 weeks. It's not very convenient to staple all the pages, and loose pages get lost easily and bent in a binder. I just came up with an idea, that maybe my school possesses binding machines, like these: http://www.delran.com/
My friend's mom used to work in some company where they had such thing, he brought binded papers for science. It looked pretty cool.
So here's a quick question (I assume PF's gotten many teachers) Do you have such binding system in your school?

Thanks,

I vaguely remember my high school having binding equipment. I'm certain my university has them scattered around each department

Go to Staples or Business Depot. It costs $2-3 at most. 4. May 11, 2006 Pengwuino Business Depot? We have a place in the US called "Office depot"! Awesome! 5.

It costs$99.00 they also have several less expensive ones depending on the number od sheets. $79 to$99.

hehe, that's quite too much. I'd rather leech of somebody, and bind the papers for free :-)

You don't need to buy the machine. I don't know where these guys are getting this from.

They will bind it for you for \$2-3. This is with the plastic cover and ring.

Our company has one, at least partly because we do administer quite a few courses with locally produced text and manuals. They also come in handy for quite a few other documents.

Yeah, my school doesn't have one. Just like Jason had predicted, I went to Staples and bound all pages for nearly 3.50. It looks pretty cool.
