Plan Printing FAQs? 

Can you print solid colours, photographs or posters?

Absolutely. However, due to the ink coverage, we cannot guarantee the same pricing as a simplified line drawing. Please contact your local MBE centre for more details.

How long will the couriers take to deliver my plans?

Please let the team know if you need your plans urgently and they will advise you of the shipping options available.

My PDF is not the correct size. Can you print it bigger or smaller?

It is normally not a problem to scale a file up or down. Please be aware the printer cannot fix any inaccuracies of scale or resolution images that happen as a result. Please inform your local MBE centre at the time of ordering if you require your job to be printed to a specific scale.

Will you print my plans today?

Most plan print orders can be completed the same or next day. Depending on the quantity and turnaround time, you may be required to pay a rush fee. Please contact your local MBE centre for more details.

Can you print from DWG, Autocad, JPG or TIFF?

The preferred format for printing is PDF. Due to the specialized software used for architecture and engineering, we cannot guarantee that we can print specialized file types. If required, please contact your centre about the cost of converting your files to be print-ready.

I have a coloured PDF but need it in Black and White. Is this possible?

Yes
