First, the store shows nice colorful pictures for the Reference rulebook and the briefing products. Are these the actual covers of the books or are they just inserts?

If I purchase the reference rulebook or the Briefing's in an unbound format, will the cover/insert still be included? I am interested in getting them unbound as I tend to like to comb bind my print outs (much easier to lay flat on the table) but I like to give them nice front covers which I usually laminate (along with a back cover) to provide better protection.

Thanks for answering this silly question.

Those are the actual covers.

Yes. I order many of mine unbound (as I like to spiral bind them, in sequence) and they still come with the color cover.

My Reference Rulebook was ordered, Unbound, Unpunched.
When it arrives, I'll cut the spine of the cover, laminate the front and back covers, then have the entire unit sriral bound at the local Kinkos.

So if it is unbound the covers (back and front) are still attached like a folder? That's nice. How much does/did Kinko's charge you for spiraling it?

Thanks for the info.

$1.00, if everything is prepped and all they have to do is bind it.

I order mine unpunched and unbound. I then insert them into sheet protectors then a three ring binder. I insert the color cover in the clear pocket on the front of the three ring binder.

Whenever there is a rulechange or update, I will scan the pages in question and cut and paste the new rules into proper sequence. I print the new page and slip it in place into my Rulebook 5.

I'm the odd one out and I order mine bound but three-hole drilled. That keeps it book-like for reading but easy to protect and tote to game-days in my FedCom binders.

I ordered mine unbound and punched, put the pages in my rules binder and the cover in the clear pocket on the front of the binder as well.

Isnt it cool that our print on demand equipment allows us to easily offer such things?

Indeed. Kinkos also charges way more to three-hole drill - I love that you'll do it for us, pre-shipping.

Yes, it is. I never did a very good job of cutting apart the SFB rulebooks to get them in binders.

I wonder if the Star Trek movie will inspire some binders for next school year...

Speaking of binders for next school year, if Cafe Press cannot make an entire binder, then a nice insert that fits into those see-through covers would be a nice way to cash in on the current popularity of Star Trek. Of course, the covers would be set in the SFU...
