Does your school have a binding machine?

  1. May 11, 2006 #1
    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.

    Business Depot?

    We have a place in the US called "Office depot"! Awesome!

    Yeah my school had an old one, usually only the elementary school teachers used it but it was availble to everyone.

    Like everthing else made in China:smile: thermal binding machines have gotten a lot cheaper in recent years. Staples has one that can bind 300 pages. 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.
