Plan Printing helps to effectively communicate your vision

If you are an architect or a building contractor, there is a high chance that you will require high-definition plans to be printed at a moment’s notice to show your clients. High-definition plan prints are important to your job because the size of the page allows you to be precise and pay attention to detail.

Plans also come useful to interior decorators, renovators, and everyone in the building business to know how the building needs to be built and where exactly the furnishing has to go.

They can come in monochrome and these days plans come in colour as well to effectively communicate their vision.

Many may get confused between a poster and a plan. While a plan shows how a building is going to be built, a poster is a marketing tool to get your business and brand noticed. Posters are stuck on vertical surfaces for everyone to see and can be laminated, printed in a wide variety of colours, and laminated to protect them from the sun.

Plans come in different sizes

A lot of us get confused between flyers and posters. One of the main differences between posters and flyers is that posters are bigger in size while flyers come in smaller sizes for easy use. Posters are stuck on walls while flyers are handed out, and poster content could be motivational, instructional, educational, or informational, while flyers are mainly used for advertising purposes.

According to the architect’s needs and what they are used for, plans can be printed in different sizes. Most plans are printed on 80 GSM paper due to the quality of the sheet.

Some tips to make your plan stand out

Here are some best practices for you to follow while printing your building plans.

  1. Set up the correct artwork – Having the right artwork for your print plan is critical. Also, make sure that the plan is ready for print in a PDF file or a high-resolution JPEG file.
  2. Make the plan visually appealing - Ask yourself, “Will the presentation catch the audience’s attention?” For this, the presentation needs to be visually appealing. Use more imagery and ensure the presentation has the right colour combination.
  3. Think visually – Use the right combination of images and text. This is because too much text can make the presentation look cluttered and often boring. Images catch the attention better than text.
  4. Keep your branding – Your company’s branding should always be present in your plans. Other than the logo, you can also use your company’s colours, and writing style to make the plan an extension of your brand.
