FAQ

What types of files do you except?

We can accept all kinds of files. For digital blueprinting, we accept pdf, tiff, plt, dwf and dwx. For graphics, signs, and banners we recommend pdf or eps. For small format printing, we recommend pdf or doc
files.

How do I send files for print?

The best method to send us files for printing is Electronic File Submission (EFS). This button is found on our home page under Login to Planroom. If you are having difficulties with EFS, you can email us the files at centurybp@comcast.net for Century Blueprint or pr2@pr2blue.com for PR2 Blueprint. If emailing, please limit your file(s) to sizes less than 10 megabytes. If you have very large file(s) greater than 50 megabytes, please give us a call at (847) 398-5855 so we can set up an ftp account.

What are your turnaround times?

Our turnaround times depend on the size of the job and the time submitted. Most digital blueprinting and scan jobs are printing the same day they are sent. Color graphics and sign jobs may require a few more days based on size and the material we are printing along with the artwork is print ready.
