I'm surprised the workers at Kinkos have a clue about anything other than what time next break is. They're not know for being brainiacs.

But yeah, walk in, find the biggest and baddest *color* copier, do a few test runs and then make *the* copy. Walk to the desk and say 'hey, I made 5 color copies'.

You might want to invest in some higher quality paper if the job warrants. Bring it with (or buy it there) and use it instead of what's loaded in the printer by default.

And show us the end result if you don't mind. I like to see others projects if only to get ideas for my own displays.

Eric--could you post pics of a few of your displays that use photocopies (or direct us to the place on the forum where we can see)? I was thinking of taking out the order books from my displays to keep them out of the light, and was wondering what it looks like.

I merged this with the "How to display Soviet awards" thread..seemed more appropriate. I would like to see a few of those photos too Eric.

Copies on display

Art, Tim
My collection is on the display behind the glass. I did my best to take a good picture. I hope it came up not very bad. At least you would get an idea.

Lovely display. By the way, the red-covered document on the right, issued by the Veteran's Council of KIK - what's KIK?

Eric,

Are either of those documents in the displays photocopies?
