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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org for Century Blueprint or email@example.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.
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.
We offer free pickup/delivery to areas within 10 miles of either PR2 or Century. Our minimum order amount for these areas will be $15.00. Deliveries outside of 10 miles from either location will have a minimum $20.00 minimum order amount.
For digital blueprinting, we print on standard 20# engineering bond. We can also print on Mylar (film), vellum, and erasable vellum. Signs, graphics, and banners can be printing on numerous substrates. Please contact us for more information on the different substrates and media available.
