I'm doing some volunteer work for a non-profit organization. (The pay will
be the experience & samples.) This group fears it might go out of
existence and I've convinced them that cleaning up some of their printed
material to present a good impression is just as important as finding
volunteers and minding the finances.
To that end, I've got permission to [re]create two books using PaperDirect
paper. I've have WinWord & a laser printer at my disposal. Have any of
you used the PaperTemplates or the Make-A-Booklet software? They're about
$40 and $50 respectively, which is a real problem with the budget. Are
they that much more helpful than just using WinWord? I have a full-time
job and do not expect to contract, so I can't just call this one a business
Do any of you know if PD might arrange a discount for a non-profit?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
