We still believe in drawing

We’ve got a confession to make. Despite all the digital technology that’s around these days, we still believe in real drawing – and we know you do too.

That’s why our Printed Drawing Sheets are so popular; because for all the high-tech, computerized tools at our disposal, sometimes there’s just no substitute for doing things the good old-fashioned way.

At Design Direct, we’ll help you rediscover the satisfaction of drawing with superior quality sheets of drafting film or trace, pre-printed with your company details and logo for highly professional presentation of your work. Available in blank or squared options, we offer 112gsm tracing paper or for tough environments, 75 micron drafting film in a choice of sizes – ideal for architectural and archaeological applications and perfect for those times when only putting pen (or pencil) to paper will suffice…
