Hi Alex,
I've used lulu before and it was okay.  The discounts for larger  
orders was negated by atrocious shipping costs.  I ended up printing  
them locally and got just as good quality, though price was the same  
I had no shipping costs - and supported my local economy.  But,  
granted, a central pay-as-you-go service could be very useful on demand.

It was precisely for the 2007 annual report edition of the Journal.   
If anyone is interested, I already have this issue online at lulu, at  
cost, $7.05.
