Frequently Asked Questions

How do you store blueprints?

There are several options when it comes to storing blueprints or other large documents. Shallow file drawers allow documents to be laid flat for storage. Roll files may take up less space and require blueprints to be rolled up and stored in upright or side-access cabinets. Portfolios, tubes and cases are some other options for blueprint storage.

How do I store old blueprints?

Old blueprints can be stored in many different ways. The condition of the documents may determine the best way to protect and store them. The best option for folded or flat blueprints may be flat file folders or cabinets. Plans that have been rolled may be better suited to tube blueprint storage or roll cabinets.

How are maps stored?

Maps can be stored in the same way that other large documents are housed.
