Blueprints & Line Drawings
We can produce standard CAD line drawings in either black and white (e.g., blueprints) or color (e.g., redline prints) in a wide range of standard and custom sizes and on a wide variety of print media. These prints typically have about a 5% coverage can be generated from either a scan of an existing document or from a pdf file.
Our standard media for both black & white prints and color prints is a 20# Engineering Bond. In addition, we have a number of alternative papers to meet you special needs. Our options include colored and heavier bond papers, translucent mylar & vellum options and the Tyvek durable option for field prints. For a fuller description of these available print papers [Click Here].
For black & white printing and most color printing, our maximum width roll is 36 inches. The exception is color prints on frosted Mylar where the maximum width is 42 inches.
Half Size Prints for Half Price
Standard drawing sizes used in construction can get quite unwieldy – especially for large construction sets. By reducing a drawing image by 50%, a unwieldy 36×48 “E” set of drawings becomes a more handleably 18X24 “C” set. Similarly, reducing a large 24×26 “D” set by 50% produces a 12×18 “B” set. These smaller sets of construction drawings are suitable for many situations and are still easy to read, more convenient to handle, and cost about half the that of a full size construction set.
