Looking at their site, appears they are not tooooo far from me (as mail service goes).

Important question though, are they only doing a finite selection of manuals?
I was thinking of getting the Steel Panthers v5 manual done out.

I saw three listed through your page through the doc center.

It seems only Korsun, Starships and Uncommon Valour are listed (is that correct).

The reason I ask, I just came face to face with the deplorable state of service here in my home town regarding copy services (services is a word that is inaccurate).

Store number 1 doesn't even have ability to print out Adobe files (claims to be professional, but not under close scrutiny).
Store number 2 asked for 40 bucks for the 239 page Steel Panthers manual file. The excuse, well the system will be tied up the whole time so I am charging for my time as well. Dopey broad was just sitting there when I entered the store eh. Sorry lady ain't paying to have you hold that seat down.
Store three asked for 12 bucks (amazing difference eh). Not so bad in the end, means I don't have to buy a 5 dollar pack of paper and beat the tar out of my printer cartridge (and they ain't cheap).

But in all three cases, I was only asking for black and white copy too.

Does Kinkos do other manuals?
If yes, what cost are we talking here?
If its close to the same basically as listed for say Korsun, I am interested,

Looking at Kinkos prices for Korsun, it appears they actually realise I am not buying a quality hardcover text book, just a friggin game manual.

Lastly, what sort of shipping expenses? Or do I coerce my buddy who drives from Mississauga, through to Oshawa regularly to just veer off and pick it up for me hehe.
They appear to have a Markham location (Kinkos).

Right now, 12 bucks ain't the end of the world. I am just looking to add the full contents of the manual to my stash.
It isn't vital though.

And 40 bucks, well I would have liked to have said something rude to that store, but held my tongue (yes odd for me :) ).
