What is Plan Printing?

Plan printing is when digital copies of drawings or construction documents are printed accurately to scale on large format paper. For example, a set of Architects drawings for a renovation project would typically consist of plans, elevations and sections drawn to a set scale, typically on an A1 sized sheet of paper. Builders and contractors use the printed plans on-site to view and commence work from. However, even before work on-site has begun, printed drawings are used heavily for the pricing and procurement of materials, trades and bespoke items. Printed drawings must be printed accurately to the correct scale. Any errors in printing will lead to inaccurate measurements when measured from the plans and can result in cost and construction errors on-site.

Why Print Plans Online?

Online plan printing gives you the tools to print and send A0, A1, A2, A3 and A4 plans directly from your computer, mobile or tablet. Using our online plan printing upload tool, select the paper size, scale of print, colour or black and white and the number of copies required. You have the option to send plans directly to a client, contractor or the local authority. The most common paper size for architectural drawings provided by Architects, Engineers and designers is A1. A1 plans are easy to handle, simple to store and provide a great way to communicate design intent to clients and contractors. Detailed A1 plans will often display colour to assist with clarity and identifying key details. If an A1 plan does not provide sufficient space, A0 plans are the next size up. A0 plans get generally used for site plans and low use architectural drawings such as key layout plans. A0 plans are large and not comfortable to handle. A0 Plans therefore tend to be used less for on-site work, and more for in-office review. For smaller works, A2 plans offer a great alternative. A2 plans are smaller in size than both A0 and A1 and are used commonly for presentation, electrical layouts and interior design. Householder planning application drawings often are presented on A3 plans due to the small scale nature of the works. It is, however, common to see both existing and proposed layouts displayed on a single A1 plan. Planning application drawings generally use colour to present the architectural design clearly and show the contrast between materials.

Architects and Engineers

Architects and Structural Engineers regularly to use our service to print and send hard copies of proposals to their clients. With the advent of PDF files, Architects no longer need to print several drawings each week and therefore cannot justify the cost of maintaining a large format printer. Instead, Architects now send paperless copies in seconds to contractors, estimators and local authorities. However, when presenting proposals to a client, hard copy printed plans remain a favourite.


Estimators and Quantity Surveyors use printed plans to measure, take off and make notes as they proceed with preparing bills of quantities. Printed plans make it quick and easy to scale from when preparing a bill of quantities. A1 plans get used regularly for detailed drawings, and now that Architects issue plans mostly in PDF format, it is up to the estimator to select which plans require printing. Online plan printing provides a quick and cost-effective solution for the estimator.

Specialist Contractors

Builders and Contractors require printed plans for quick and easy reference. A well-defined drawing can be pinned on a wall or laid out on the floor. A typical example is an electrical layout. An electrical plan will show a contractor where to position wires, holes, trunking and other services, including fixtures and fittings. Electrical layouts are often colour A1 plans which clearly show design intent. Specialist Contractors are increasingly using our services to send plans directly to the site from head offices.

Festivals, Production and Event Management

A successful festival, production or brand event requires months of planing and organisation. Indoor and outdoor events require teams of people to co-ordinate over vast areas to ensure above all the health and safety of all attendees. Plans, schedules and site layouts play a vital part in ensuring all members of the team are informed. Trust Clickpost to print and deliver event coordination plans for your next event.

Model Making and Hobbyists

Skilled model makers use printed scale drawings to produce accurate reproductions of vehicles and transport such as model aircraft, model boats, model ships and model cars to name a few. Other activities requiring accurate prints include sewing patterns.
