How about a passionate "Don't do it!" At my former position, my boss
insisted on printing our 7-volume, 2100 page user guide in house.
Fortunately, she was kind enough to take on that nightmare herself. Which
means that, because our PMs could request guides on a whim, that's ALL she
did--print docs. We had the budget and the approval to go outside, but she
insisted.

Aside from this being a monumental waste of her time, the printer was never
free to for us to use. And it constantly needed maintenance.

These manuals were set in three-ring binders. I can't imagine the extra work
involved in creating binded copies. I just can't imagine using your time
that way when there are companies who are experienced and much more
efficient in this process.
