Re: Large format plotter

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
That's a good idea and I do that also, but there are times that I want one large sheet to bleed on. My local printer (no Kinkos) is about 10 miles away. My office is a building behind my home on about one acre and I don't have walk in trade. Transfer drawings as pdf's almost exclusively on the internet. Although I think I am efficient with the prints and check calcs, my office still seems to be a mess with all the paper that still gets generated.

Finally getting use to plan checking and calc checking, marking up directly on a pdf file and kicking the whole caboodle back to who ever I am reviewing without printing anything out.

shop. Kinko's and our local blueprint shop both offer large-size plotting services at a reasonable price. Spend the money on a decent 11x17 printer for check sets and out-source the production printing.
