Color printing is no longer a luxury that can be overlooked. In fact, by using color you can actually save time and money on your next project. Color printing has become an important component in many types of projects because of its ability to decrease human error rates. It is proven that color documents are more easily understood and the information presented is retained at higher rates versus monochromatic documents.

Here are some of the ways that you can save time and money by printing in color:

  1. Better understanding when reading files with multiple lines = faster reading and more time efficiency.
  2. Reduce human error when interpreting line drawings, avoiding potentially large extra costs in project delivery = saved time and money.
  3. Avoid manual stamp work for Certified Stamped plots = reduced delivery time.
  4. Copy corrected markup files that could not be printed before = better communication.

Reducing Costs with Color Printing

According to the Lyra Research Inc. article “Color Construction Documents: A Simple Way to Reduce Costs,” general industry estimates that between 10 and 30% of all building project costs can be attributed to wasted activities, such as schedule overruns due to inaccurate coordination scheduling, wasted labor and management time, wasted materials, and unnecessary litigation.

If printing with color could cut that time and/or costs by even a fraction, those savings could mean a lot to your business.

Here are some examples of how color printing can make your projects easier to read and reduce human errors:
