Wrong and a half! I agree.

So, why use binders? You know no one ever updates them, so?
If the issue is short runs and/or On Demand publishing, you can get short
runs bound in small quantities.

Suggestion. Get good covers printed and laminated, then print as needed.
This also gives you more flexibilty in page size and design. Choose Wire-O
or Plastikoil binding for ability to stay open and flat.

If you want to print 2 copies of page 1, 2 copies of page 2 on the back, 2
copies of 3... we can help with solutions.
