For such a small quantity, my suggestion would be to just do the imposition oneself, print them on an ink or laserjet printer, then bind them by hand.

For so few pages you can make do w/ just stapling them w/a  binding stapler:


The imposition can be done using pdfpages or written up by hand. See _The Book of Tea_ in the TeX Showcase for an example of doing this.

For a printer, I'd suggest one which has individual ink tanks for each color and which has duplexing (I use a Canon IP6700D).
