Best service that can print & bind one copy of a 500 page pdf?

I have a public domain pdf book that I'd like to have a durable hard copy of. Googling throws up too many false positives, and the most relevant previous AskMeFi doesn't really help. Recommendations?

HTML printing problem

Can you help me with this HTML print-sizing problem? I have a 3x5 index card created in Word. When I convert it to PDF, it prints out full size, as in Word. But when I convert to HTML, either from Word or from the PDF, and then print the HTML page, it scales down. Is there a way to make it print full-size in HTML?

Printing encrypted PDFs

I have a PDF file that doesn't want to print. The print commands are grayed out in Acrobat Reader. The lock symbol appears indicating that the document is encrypted to prevent modification of "certain aspects". However, I have other documents which appear to have similar encryption that print fine. Is the encryption causing this problem? If not, then what is? How can I work round the problem?
