A manual refers to a reference book which provides instructions, information or help. Each manual refers to a particular topic or location. One type of manual is that which comes with a technical device. It helps explain installation, operation, and often overviews troubleshooting procedures and warranty terms. These are the pamphlets consumers receive with an appliance or other piece of equipment they purchase. Another form of manual is one used as a guideline for company policy and procedure, such as an employee manual created by the human resources department. Most often these are produced for the benefit of an organization's staff as well as ensuring that a company is in compliance with certain government-mandated rules and regulations. Yet another manual type refers to those which teach a particular way to do something, or provide an alternate method for a known procedure. These "how-to" manuals are quite popular as publications sold for profit and can cover a range of subjects from hobbies to life management.
In this modern day and age, many businesses may think they have no need for print manuals when most, if not all, of the information they and their employees need access to is located on a computer hard drive. For most people, however, it is much easier to learn by referring to a printed document. Employees who need to perform tasks away from their computer will require a printed copy of a manual to take with them. Company policy manuals are always printed; the usual requirement is that each employee sign that they have received it. This covers a business in the case of a staff member claiming ignorance when found doing something against the stated rules or regulations.
While it's great to develop help files and training aids which are easily accessed on a computer, it is always advisable to also print a hard copy of these manuals. Not only does it create another form of backup, but it provides a document that is more easily portable. Particularly if you are going to create and distribute a large volume of manuals, whether instructional, training, or listing rules and regulations, using a commercial printer will save time and money. With an online printer like Moxicopy.com, the process of printing manuals is incredibly easy. Any manual stored on a computer's hard drive is already in a file which can be uploaded to the Moxicopy.com website. The file may need to be converted to Adobe Acrobat format, but most are already saved as .txt, making this a snap. Commercial printing means you also have control over exactly how the manual looks and how it is bound. Those manuals which will get a lot of use and abuse will hold up best with a hard cover and rigid spine. Using standard-sized, plain white paper means this is still an economical option.
