We use 3-ring binders or spriral bound booklets, depending on the size or
the document and/or the nature of the customer

We send individual documents most of the time. Occasionally we send a
set--two volumes.

We do have a shipping department, but we assist in getting things ready in
a pinch (we are small, less than 50 people) Documentation keeps our own
records for inventory.

We either run our own copies on the office copier or send to a local print
shop. The latter usually when the document is over 50 pages (I said we
were small!) and would tie up the copier too long. Also for multiple
copies. We use a view-binder and insert appropriate covers and spines in
the office. (As a part-time employeed, this is often my task to create)
