What is Online Blueprint Printing?

It is almost safe to say that for every four sets of drawings ordered the fifth set is FREE!
Most blueprint files are too large to be emailed so the challenge lies in how do I transfer my files from my computer to the print shop or reprography shop’s computer for printing? The only way this problem can be solved it to have a straight FTP upload folder or a modern website with a form and a file upload button that’s linked to a back end FTP.
Online blueprint printers clients that use a form system also eliminate the process of missing fine details that clients forget when ordering blueprints. When the fine details are missed the finishing department or blueprint machine operator has to guess, do I have to staple these drawings, do I have to bind them, what color binding tape am I putting on them. Am I printing color pages from the provided PDF file in color or to save cost, my client want’s me to print color pages with black and white ink.
Since online blueprint printers ship bulk their shipping cost are minimal this also open’s a new window of opportunity for their client to distribute blueprints to different offices or affiliates in different towns provinces or across the country.
Most online print shops are much larger than the average husband wife print shop or the less than 5 staff business. This not only give the client cheaper product cost but also a better product and faster turn around time due to the large clientele. Some even promise same day shipment or next business day shipment.
