1. Question: What size are these Blueprints?

Developed on 30" x 42" sheets. Border-to-border your blueprint will measure two feet high by three feet wide. This allows some extra material for edge protection or framing.

AviationShoppe's Blueprints: are created by overlaying treated paper with translucent film, which is then processed in chemicals through a machine, similar to the way photo film is developed. The chemical reacts to intensified light and heat, which transposes the drawing into a dark Prussian blue print, hence the name Blueprint.
