For short print runs, I just run off all the manuals on the laser printer.
When every copy is an original, I don't have to worry about quality
declining with copying. You need a duplexing printer for this, but
a duplexing attachment is almost mandatory in any event.

If you're going to use GBC binding, get your printer to deliver a couple
of cases of pre-punched paper for you. They will have to punch it
themselves, since such things aren't available from paper companies, but
their labor rates are much cheaper than yours, and their equipment is
more robust. For three-hole binding you have your choice of pre-drilled
paper and having a print shop drill the paper of your choice. Both
methods are cheap.

It's also nice to have pre-printed cover stock that you can run through
the laser printer.
