The kinko's that my friend used was actually using an insta-press. I think
the real trick is finding someone who will do the job at a more reasonable
markup. There are a few short-run color printing places that I use on

Since my company deals in "electronic publishing", we usually try to keep
the tree killing to a minimum. Otherwise, I'd probably know a source off the
top of my head.
