Any idea how much it would cost to get someone to color print math mammoth and bind i

Recommended Posts

I only have a b&w printer. How much would it cost to go to office max or use an online deal like mimeo and have them color print and spiral bind a years worth of math mammoth? Any suggestions on where to go?

We did this accidentally. I sent my husband in to have it printed, he did not tell them we wanted it in black and white, so they did it in color. He came out and told me the total, about $225 IIRC, and I had a cow. He went back in to complain and we got lucky because the person working was new and had not asked him if he wanted color or black and white, so we were given store credit. This was from office depot. These were printed and bound, last year.

If you have a lot of pdf workbooks, have you considered some kind of tablet? I just put all of ours on an iPad with Notabliity app. Dd can write in the answers. BTW, not my original idea -- a lot of people here do it.

 

It could save you money in the long run.

 

But, if you are printing, you might want to go to a specialist printer for a quote. Places like Staples have a b&w price and a color price -- they don't have a price for b&w with touches of color, like MM.

Good grief! Was this just one year's worth? Or say, the whole blue/light blue series?

Yikes. How much did you get printed for $200? That is definitely more than I am willing to spend. I want to spend like $30 tops. :D

We don't have any tablet device. DH is just dying for me to give him an excuse to buy one... But, then he'll probably hog it. So, I'm not sure if that solves my MM color problem...

I don't know the exact total, but I'm pretty sure I paid $20-25 to have one grade's worth printed and spiral bound at Kinko's. That was BW duplex printed, wire spiral binding, clear front cover, black plastic cover.

 

Color was going to be *drastically* more expensive. Something like .15/sheet vs. .03/sheet.

It was 1A and 1B only and it may have been one sided, I can't remember that for sure. I was expecting it to be about $30. I felt sick when DH told me how much it was, luckily though it was the result of a combination of errors and we got it refunded with a store gift card, which took a long time to use!

Do you have access to a printer? I just printed out the entire second grade year and it barely made a dent in the printer's ink cartridges. I chose to put it in a 3 ring binder, but you could just as easily print it yourself and take it to someplace like Staples to be bound.

I printed mine for free at the library. I can get 75 b&w or 25 color copies per week per card. I have three cards so I can print 75 color copies a week. Took a few weeks but can't beat the price.

You are lucky. Our library is not free.

Ours is like $.25 a page b&w! You are lucky, Nicolepa!

 

Wow! I didn't realize this wasn't common. I'm just bummed that I didn't learn about it until this year!

$90.. Had it done at Office Depot, only one half year done. Now I just print at home (in color) and stick in binder. That was too pricey for me to do again..
