Blueprints Printing: The Architect’s Time Machine

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a time machine - to skip ahead into a future when technology has solved all of our problems, or perhaps to go back to a simpler time when we didn’t have to deal with the complications that modern technology brings? However, in the wise words of Archibald, the animated architect: “Architecture is not a final destination in time; it is a journey through life.”  As architects and builders, we are constantly imagining and designing for the future, while attempting to deal with reality as it exists in the present. 

Deciding when and how to modernize your business is potentially a make-or-break decision. We know from working with engineers, architects, and construction professionals, that the move to digital interaction increases efficiency and is a desirable strategic goal. However, there are also those who are comfortable with hard copy plans and trips to their local reprographer. No matter where your business falls on the technology continuum, is your design/build time machine - transporting you into the technological future without out any new grey hairs.

We designed our online platform to perform the following functions:

  1. Enable quick PDF uploads, instant price quotes, and easy ordering.
  2. Be the lowest-cost printing option available, at only $0.66 for an ARCH D (24x36) drawing.
  3. Print and ship blueprints efficiently and quickly.  
  4. Provide intuitive, useful software modules which makes the transition to electronic construction planning easy and painless.
  5. Allow modular software purchases - buy modules you need when you need them.
  6. Integrate new methods for marketing and communicating with your design/build partners.

We collaborated with innovative and enterprising partners and got to work building a dynamic, mobile-enabled website to bring all of these components together. 

Now, you can upload your plan PDFs and order blueprints right from your desk, while still having the option of calling in to speak with our knowledgeable and friendly customer support personnel. Your plans can be delivered quickly to multiple addresses or job sites. With’s plan room software, you are able to easily upload plans and share them with clients and other members of your team.

Our platform will always be the bridge that makes travelling into the future easy. We have made a promise to keep our website and services constantly dynamic; always adding new elements to keep up with changes in the industry. Several more modules are already in the works, including bid software and a construction industry social media platform. These modules will enable you to connect with other Blueprints Printing subscribers in your industry who can help you create, innovate, and get jobs completed. With the decision to go all electronic does not have to be abrupt, and the process of getting there can be as easy and painless as hopping into our online time machine.

Come time travel with us into the future!
