book-cutting fiasco!

September 9, 2006

Stupid national chain copy shop.

They no longer cut the bindings off books because it damages their blades. Further, they now charge 3¢ per page to drill holes through things, which means that JUST having holes put in one of my casebooks would cost me $21. TWENTY-ONE DOLLARS!

That, my friends, is ridiculous. Ri-gosh-darn-diculous, in fact.

So I’ve cut the binding off the big one myself. Now I’m dithering on whether I should start punching holes in it myself, or take it to school or another copy shop and try to use a heavy-duty hole punch. (Mine only does about 10 pages at once. Yeek!)

VERY frustrating, people. VERY.

    Yeah, I was completely unamused when I took a ginormous stack of papers in to get hole-punched and was told an hour wait — I didn’t have an hour — and penny a page. Grrrr.

    I worked at a “national chain copy shop” for a lloonnggg time and now I work at a copy shop opened by disgruntled former employees of said “national chain copy shop.”

    Cutting the binding off books won’t damage a cutter blade. Someone at that shop is an idiot. Go at a different time and see if you get a different answer. Really. The odds are that you’ll find someone who WILL cut the spines off your books for you is high.

    In the future, you can mail your books to me and I’ll cut the spines off and drill them for you for free! However, it might cost a small fortune to mail them back and forth. 🙂
