We provide a comprehensive array of reprographic services that help you optimize the use and maximize the value of printed material in any environment.
Our reprographic services will increase your productivity and efficiency by choosing the proper production resources for your documents, reducing waste and supporting your objectives for the appropriate use of print for your projects.
Bond printing paper is the common, slightly rough surfaced paper used for writing, printing, and drawing, etc. We offer several grades of bond paper for printing: 20# white, 24# white, and 32# white bond. The grade of bond paper is important to how your print looks. For regular blueprints, a 20# bond is high enough grade and durable enough for most uses.
For proposals, color renderings, and other prints where your print needs to be clear and look sharp on the page, use a heavier grade bond – 24# for proposals, 32# for large format color renderings. These heavier bonds look whiter and allow for a much brighter finish for your color document. The heavier the bond, the better the print looks.
Vellum is a smooth finish, very high-quality blueprint material that is quite durable. Made from a combination of synthetic materials, cotton, and wood pulp, this smooth finished paper is durable, lightweight and semi-clear, allowing it to also be used as an overlay. The background behind the paper, e.g. blueprints, can be clearly seen, which makes this material ideal for any type of drawing overlay or archival drawing that require a nice, smooth surface. We use 18# Vellum for printing drawings.
We offer this incredibly durable polyester film in a clear or translucent off-white version, and we print on 4 mil thickness. Film will not tear or lose shape over time. It is great for templates, engineered structures and products drawings, overlays, and more. Anytime you have project plans that you want to be able to see through or trace – Mylar is a great option!
The advantage of using this technique is that you may use the blueprints as a transparent 2D Map where you can specify any colour lines you like.
Because of the durability, and relative affordability of Tyvek, project managers, architects, engineers, and other professionals have started using Tyvek on the job site for construction plans and other waterproof documents that they may need. One set of Tyvek will last on the job site the entire length of the project, allowing redlines, notations, and other information to be preserved on the drawing without having to scan the old documents and reprint.
