The advantages of printing in color

Color printing has become an important component in projects because it can decrease human error rates. It has been proven that color documents are more easily understood and the information is retained at higher rates versus monochrome documents.

The use of color documents reduces errors and allows a team to easily understand the sections of a plan for which they are responsible. During the bidding phase, color documents make a more professional impression than monochrome documents.

Throughout the project, the use of color in documents can help keep the project on time and on budget.

  • In up to 65% of the cases, color documents are more easily understood and the information is retained at higher rates versus monochrome documents
  • Up to 80% errors reduction due to the use of color documents
  • Color drafts reduce failure cost on building site by 3.9%
  • Around 0.25% of the costs of the project are typically construction documentation costs
  • $1 invested in color printing can yield $4 in savings for a given project
