What You'll Get
Before binding was invented, pages ran wild across the countryside, overwhelming passersby with treatise tornados and clogging gutters with Proust novels. Confine wisdom within a well-placed spine with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $100 worth of custom digital printing from Sun Devil Digital at Arizona State University. Today's Groupon may be redeemed at ASU's Tempe campus bookstore.
Sun Devil Digital partners with computer crafter Hewlett-Packard to offer on-demand digital printing technology for budding bindsmen. Prospective auteurs prepare .pdf files of memoirs, manifestos, or Mr. Belvedere fan fiction and then deliver their wares to ASU's text technicians for printing and binding. Get classically proportioned 8.5"x11" black-and-white pages ($0.03 per page) produced, or opt for 8.5"x11" color pages ($0.23) instead. Depending on the class and publisher permission, students may also print on-demand textbooks, cutting down on carbon waste, bookstore costs, and time wasted waiting for books to roll out of bed.
