Large Format Black & White
LDI was one of the first companies to promote the use of digitally generated bond prints instead of blueprints. We call this “Reproprinting,” as opposed to “blueprinting.” Today, bond is the quality and speed standard for both large- and small-format prints worldwide; LDI has incomparable experience in high-volume, wide-format digital printing, and the word “Reproprinting” is an exclusive LDI registered trade name.
Half size prints for half price
Standard drawing sizes used in construction can get very unwieldy very quickly depending on the size of the construction set. By reducing a drawing image to 50% of its original size (resulting in a half scale drawing) a 24×36 set of drawings becomes a 12×18 set of drawings. This smaller construction set is easy to read, more convenient to handle, almost half the cost of a full size construction set.
Although digital files are a more convenient way to distribute construction documents, LDI recognizes that mishandled digital files can result in a lot of wasted time, effort, and ultimately money. That is why all LDI branches practice sound file management techniques and procedures to ensure all digital drawing sets are properly named, in proper order, with images properly oriented. LDI branches also integrate all addenda drawings into the digital set (LDI refers to this as merge/purge) to ensure the end user gets the most up to date files and prints.
