My last company printed anywhere from 25 to 250 at a time. We used a
Docutech, and the cost was reasonable.

I provided PDF files. I included the .ps file on the disk, but they usually
printed from the PDF. I don't know if that's unusual.

I never used a special printer driver (on a Mac) and they all turned out

You can't (or I couldn't) do color on a Docutech. Other than that, I thought
it worked fine.
