Getting PDFs printed and bound (Confessions of a Homeschooler curriculum)
June 21, 2013 at 12:27 PM

Has anyone used a store or site to have downloaded PDFs printed? I remember someone saying they had it printed and bound. I don't really want to do it at home and would love to have it as a book if it's not very expensive. We're using Expedition Earth and I'd like to get Road Trip USA but it depends on printing.

    I just 3-hole punch those and put them in binders. If you use cardstock, it makes a really nice notebook. You can get the binders with the clear pockets, like I do, and make them look pretty. I like that if we mess up a page, I can reprint it and substitute it in.

    You can buy your own wire or comb binders. Some people do that. There are also methods (online) that allow you to bind the pages with glue or sewing and using colored duct tape for a binding.

    Yes, you can get them printed and bound at office stores, but I've not done that.

    I thought UPS did? 

    Some local places do it. When I was down in Texas, my dads small town had several places like that. I have never seen them anywhere near where I live though. We have main chain stores here. One of the office (Staples, OfficeMax) stores might do it.

    Staples, office max, office depot all do that I believe. I bought a super simple binder and did it myself. I have a photo tutorial on my blog to show you. We use it to maje books, notebooks, drawing pads, my lesson planner, etc. love love love!

    Can you post a link to the binder you have? I love how it looks in your blog. We have one at the school I still work in and the binding is so cheap, I hate it! Your bindings look solid and sturdy!

    I used to manage an architecture firm so I got to know our blueprint guys really well. Blueprint shops typically print and bind proposals and student projects, so it isn't out of their realm to print PDFs and bind them to our (usually simple) specifications. The shop I use can even format stuff to PowerPoint because they've had to assist students so often. Because of the friendliness, lower prices, and additional knowledge that local places tend to have, I always recommend trying there first.
