Architectural Blacklines

Including: Construction Document Management

Blueprints are a thing of the past. Our blackline printing process can meet all your architectural rendering needs. Much more cost-effective, accurate, and durable than blueprints, blacklines are ready when you need them, and they are recyclable. We can produce blacklines from your digital files or by scanning your original prints or blueprints. We can handle originals up to 36” wide by any controllable length.

Preferred File Types for Blackline Printing
  • PDF
  • Plotfile
Acceptable File Types
  • HPGL/2
  • Postscript (Level2)
  • Calcomp plot files
  • CALS
What NOT to send

Please do not send CAD files in their native formats (DWG, DXF, DGN, etc.). Instead use your CAD system to plot your data to a named PDF or plotfile. Submitting those files will streamline the process and give you more control over the output of your data. IMPORTANT: We cannot manipulate your print data. You are responsible for creating the correct plot data.
