While I'm mulling on whether or not to blog on the recent reportage about the Starr King School for the Ministry -- it won't be nice-nice-sweet-sweet if I do -- I thought I would review a helpful bit of office equipment of particular use for ministers: the small three-hole punch, meant for 8.5 x 5.5 inch paper.
Over the years, I've written how-tos related to 8.5 x 5.5 sized print jobs. This is the size often used for orders of service, and is a good size for a DIY minister's special services book. These days, I even put sermon notes and manuscripts in a 8.5 x 5.5 format, and into an appropriate binder. Why? It carries better, looks better and (for travel) packs better than a full-sized binder. It reads "book" more than "binder".
You can print two 8.5 x 5.5 pages on one piece of 8.5 x 11 paper, and fold it into a small page protector, but they're not always available, but once you have the hole punch…
This is what I bought, and despite what that page says, I got it in-store and there was a small variety of colors.
