Copy Shops

Copy shops offer photocopy and printing services. Full-service copy shops often have coin-operated copy machines that clients can use to make a individual copies. At the desk, employees help clients copy difficult items or produce copies in bulk, as for resumes, choosing appropriate paper and presentation aids.

Truly full-service copy shops have the ability to copy in color, to bind documents, to handle documents of unusual size, and to provide extra services such as the printing of personalized stationery and business cards.

A modern trend is for copy shops to offer printing services, either from computer disks or from files sent to them over the Internet. With these services, customers can send in files to a shop in another city and arrange for printed and bound copies of their presentations to be waiting for them when they arrive.

Many copy shops today have added services to become pack and ship centers.
