Construction Drawings - Multiple Sets Printed on Bond

Construction Prints - Vellums or Bond
Most people are familiar with Blueprint paper which is a standard type of light-sensitive photographic paper (called diazo paper) that architectural plans were commonly printed on. Blueprints cannot be reproduced and fade over time.


Design Basics uses another type of paper called Bond. There are two main advantages of Bond prints over Blueprints. Bond prints can be reproduced multiple times and do not fade over time.


Page size varies depending on the complexity of the plan. Typical pages are 18" x 24", while others are 24" x 36" and 36" x 48".
