I just started working at a digital printing shop and will see if this place can come up with a better price on something like this although $16 for a 300 page bound manual sounds very reasonable. Probably pretty cheap paper but still not bad.

Is cover laminated Haukka81?

Id be interested in a printed manual and if not ill try and do one from the digital copy but id rather just pay for it. My main concern is the manual in any form should be comprehensive and updated as the need arises.

Yes it is, quality is VERY good.


AND paper is very nice, strong.

I wanted to chime in, I had ordered a manual through lulu and the quality is pretty darn good. The price is great; around $16.78 and came out to around $24 with shipping and tax. The pages are thick and they don't feel cheap. I chose color standard - spiral bound and all of the images, different colored text and highlighted text came out just fine.

If you were wanting a hard copy of manual, you cannot go wrong with lulu.com.

Personal Note:
I think the A4 size is a little too big and I will chose a slight smaller option the next one I do. I think 2/3 of the A4 size would be ideal in my opinion.

If only I could get the A-10C manual to upload to their site. Something about fonts not being embedded in the PDF.

I was able to upload the Gazelle manual just as a test, but don't really have a need for the printed manual at this time.

I will certainly use this service when the need arises. Glad to hear others are having success with the service.

You need to re save it , simple thing is use something like Windows print to PDF bit hack but works

Juts open it and press print , select Windows PDF printer etc..

Thanks Haukka81 - I will give that a shot.

Update: The file uploaded. Its so large at 600+ pages that it can't be spiral bound. 8.5x11 size full color is $38 before shipping. Good to know that it can be printed. Now I have to weigh the value against the cost. At $24 shipped, it seemed like a decent value... not so sure at $40+

Me, too!

But, that is why I finally bought a Amazon Kindle Fire 10 inch tablet for easy access to my various aircraft flight manuals and Chuck's guides.

I actually use my tablet as a kneeboard.
