From: Toni Subject: [tt-inc] Re: just got back from Kinkos with some prices Today I went to Kinko's and Office Depot in Rochester, NY. I assume many of us have these stores in our areas. I took my small copy of the book Mary had printed, plus the 8 x 11 I had printed at work. I asked for quotes on 1000 copies of the small book, told them this was not final copy and it would need to be accessed on the web. Kinko's estimate was $2860. plus tax of $228. equals $3088. Office Depot gave me a price quote of $3960 for the same job. That price difference was in the comb binding, perhaps a misquote from Office Depot. Both stores suggested that I talk with the Print Center Manager or Commercial Business Rep during the week. If there is a possibility of a reorder, and the fact that we are a Non Profit, they should give a good discount. A smaller print shop may give a better quote as well, particularly if there is a possibility of repeat business, which there may be. These are ideas to discuss and also gives an idea of the value of the work that Mary has been doing. Office Depot charges $100 to cut the comb bindings and $12 to cut the paper on the order. (that must be reversed) In any event, if the Board decides to do something of this nature, I cannot take the responsibility of having it printed and distributed in this area. As disabled as I currently am, I could not carry the book order. As my printer is broken, I could not print the shipping labels, etc. Then there is carrying these orders to the post office. Since the fracture of my right fibula (leg bone) in July of this year, being on crutches for three months being unable to carry anything, then a cane, and still the leg is unable to bear it's normal weight, thus disabled I am. Right now I need to focus on Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation at least an hour a day. I expect to slowly go off these email lists and most of my volunteer work while I am in therapy. Someone else will need to assume this responsibility.
