CAD Plans

Drawings, plans, CAD, or reprographics – whatever you prefer to call it – run in our DNA. Beginning with a single ammonia-based print machine in our founder’s basement to one of the large HP Pagewide fleets in Canada – our team has been delivering success since 1963. Our lean production methods and continual investment in innovative technologies put us on the bleeding edge of print fulfillment – keeping your projects running on time. 

We produce highfidelity colour or monochrome drawings on a variety of materials – from recycled bond paper to water resistant polypropylene (a recyclable and more cost-effective alternative to lamination). With one of the largest CAD drawing print capacities in North America, no turnaround is too tight for any last minute and time-sensitive orders.

Why print on Polypropylene?

Polypropylene is a tear & water-resistant material with excellent versatility and value for a wide range of print applications. A recyclable and cost-effective alternative to lamination, this product stands up to the harshest conditions without trading off brilliant color and edge definition.
