Default how many?

How many manuscript copies should be sent out. At present it's fairly easy for me to print and bind a4 copies. and i sent two out, one publisher likes it, but turned out to be a vanity publisher demanding thousands of pounds. the other is interested but non commital.

should i say print 10 copies and contact 1o publishers? or does that open me up to the risk ofd copying etc?

I normally send out each MS or short story to about 6-10 publishers/agents.
I keep an excel document that tracks all responses so I know who to submit to in the future and who to forget.
