Staple & several copies
If you like to print several copies and want to use the staple feature: do not use Copies on the first dialog page!
Instead use Tab: Advanced > Repeat Job:
Printer / Copier 'jcolor' is capable to fold and stamp printouts to create booklets / brochures.
- Mulitple Copies: DO NOT USE 'copies' (print dialog or via commandline '-n num-copies'). Instead use 'Repeat jobs' under advanced options.
- Up to 16 sheets of paper can be stitched! If you have more they only get folded.
Printing booklet with only folding (no stamps), might produce outputs where the single folded sheets of paper are one by one and not insertet into each other.
Linux via terminal

lpBooklet.sh -n <number_of_copies> -m <A4|A5> -f <file.pdf>
