The trouble with this solution is that when you want *lots* of bookmarks
(or any other printed item), bulk printing is still *much* cheaper than
paying to print things yourself.  The cost of paper and toner would
quickly run the OP's school district budget into the ground.

If all that was involved was the printing, binding, and manufacturing
costs, hardbacks would be a few dollars each and paperbacks a little less.
The rest goes to marketing, friction in the distribution channel, and
(at the very tail end) author's royalties.

If you have ever wondered if you are in hell, it has been said, then
you are on a well-traveled road of spiritual inquiry.  If you are
absolutely sure you are in hell, however, then you must be on the Cross
Bronx Expressway.  --Alan Feuer, New York Times, 2002-09-20
