Or go to a local copy shop with electronic printing capability
For example We can store the "electronic original" on our server and print
copies on demand with a number of bindings available (http://www.alco.com).
This is probably a better solution for many people who either have only an
ink jet or a slower laserprinter without a hard drive.
To people concerned about the world ending on the Millennium.
The Jewish calendar is in the year 5759 and the Chinese calendar is in the
year 4696. The Christianity Calendar is in the year of 1999. If the Jews
and Chinese made it through their calendar year 2000, I am sure the
Christens will too.
