of our copiers are capable of printing from your digital files, thus removing a generation
and the resulting image degradation. Several options are available through automated
features of the copy equipment; reduction/enlargement, collating, stapling of up to

We stock white tab dividers. We have 3, 4, 5,and 6 cut in stock but are able to order others if needed. You can have them three hole drilled or undrilled. Just provide the information that you want to have put on the tab and we will set them for you.

convenient if your
office is not equipped with a scanner or the proper software.
