CAD Printing

Superior Quality

Architects, engineers, contractors and designers rely on TR Trades to produce superior quality large format drawings. At TR Trades, we print your CAD files on high-speed state of the art color and B+W plotters. Whether half size, full size, or scaled per your request, our award-winning printers, matched with TR Trades customized processing software, allow for speed and precision with every print. We know how long our customers spend on their drawings, which is why we are committed to producing unparalleled quality products. Our processes define line weights and subtle shading areas for crisp and precise reproductions.

High capacity and fast turn around

TR Trades is the most trusted when it comes to large capacity, fast turnaround B+W and colour printing. Having the capacity to print over 2000 B+W “D” size prints per hour, you can count on TR Trades to meet your tight deadlines and seemingly impossible print requests.

Document Distribution

Trust TR Trades to accurately separate jobs for your consultants and sub trades, and coordinate your spit deliveries. With five in-house fleet vehicles including a robust quality control and delivery system, TR Trades’ dispatch team can have your drawings wrapped, labelled and delivered faster than having them couriered to your final destination.
