    anyone use one of these? what kind and where did you get it?

    and yes...i'm lazy. if i can pay $200 for a machine that will save me hours in the long run then it is well worth it. maybe i can purchase a monkey and train it.

    I have used one and they are nice. I do not know much about the one that i used at work except that it made quick time of folding thousands of letters. The one that i used could only fold 1 sheet at a time but it was quick.

    just my 2 cents...I would just drop off anything I needed folded to my printer. They have the right equipment and they maintain it. If you have a good relationship with them the charge for a few hundred to a thousand shouldn't be much. By looking at those incredibly cheap folders I'd guess you are just buying headaches!

    I would not take my invoices with all of my customer information on it to a third party to fold.

    For $300 you can save the fuel, time, and risk of taking them out to have them done.

    Reminds me of my printing days. Running a Baum folder for hours wow would it give me a head-ache! Of course we were running thousands and thousands of letters. The biggest problem we had was static that copies would have in them vs printed sheets. I think it would be a good investment if you had to fold hundreds of letters at a time.
