Karen Kay points out that Kinko's laser printers are cheap. there's also
cheap fonts.
From any shareware source, one can buy a disk of Windows TrueType fonts for
$2 to $3. If one gets sends off to America On Line (AOL) for a free ten
hour account, one can download many fonts for free.

I agree with Nancy's point: many of our colleagues can't afford several
hundred dollars in stuff which others may think to be normal. Luckily,
there are ways to get around this, such as kinko's laser printers and
(nearly) free fonts.
