How To Create and Print Engineer Blueprint-Sized Prints

What Are Engineer Prints?
Engineer prints have become a great way to get high-contrast drawings, plans, and creative fun on a budget. They’re super affordable since they’re printed on a thinner paper, and they’re great for engineers and architects to show off detailed plans in black and white. But they are great for the crafty or party person that would like to create their own extra large prints. Plus, they look way cooler, and a wow factor being larger than regular prints!
What Sizes Are Engineer Prints?
Engineer prints come in a variety of sizes, with two of the most popular being 18” x 24” and 24” x 36”. For bigger projects, some places offer prints of up to 36” x 48”.
