Chris,

You might try CreateSpace.com. This is an Amazon subsidiary that is set up for self-publishers, but they are pretty good for short runs of perfect-bound content. You're close to their minimum for perfect bound books (I think the minimum is 32), but you should be ok.

We use CreateSpace for short runs (we used them for review copies of Krista VanLaan's The Insider's Guide to Technical Writing). I don't have their pricing right at hand, but I'm positive it will be much better than $20/copy.
