Wisconsin preliminary notices should be sent after the sender first provides labor, materials, services, equipment, plans, specifications for the improvement. So, if part of your work is to provide blueprints, then notice should generally be given based on when those plans are furnished. Further, keep in mind that sending notice a little on the earlier side is usually fine anyway.
