We have used ICI Information Conservation, Chesterfield, VA, (800/732-8970)
for years and have been very satisfied with the work.  Of course, we are
only 25 miles from them and we are one of their federal library clients via
a GPO contract.

Houchen Bindery, Utica, Ne--email  The quality is not too
bad, they seem to tack new charges on after the fact so I would be sure the
bid document is very detailed.  We have not been on wonderful terms with
them but others seem to have no problem.  We are in the Midwest and they are
the nearest to us, plus they always seem to get our bid.  They are about 35
miles west of Lincoln.  Good luck!

Hi Jennifer

We use Page Bindery POBox 187 Jacksonville NY 14854 (near Ithaca).  I
don't have a price list but I think they are very competative, they do
good work and I particularly like their 3 week delivery schedule.
