How much would you charge for binding books in small quantities? All publishers have to make "galleys" to send to reviewers before the book is officially "published." The galleys are a small run of the book in a different binding, because certain reviewers insist on getting the book a few months before it is "published." This is a great pain in the neck to many small publishers because they don't have the equipment or know-how to do it themselves.
