Handmade paper or a premium quality canvas are the two materials we print on.
The handmade paper has a specific texture. It is naturally bumpy, just like in the old times. Please do not expect a smooth and glossy surface of a photo paper. Handmade paper suits antique map reproductions much better.
We use a modern ink-jet printer in order to ensure the colors are bright and long-lasting when exposed to daylight permanently.
Depending on your monitor settings, the colors of the printed map may vary slightly from the computer of mobile device range.
It is a matter of course that the maps are printed in high resolution.
The electronic copies of the original maps are restored before printing. Major stains and dirt are removed. Minor soiling is, however, kept to ensure an authentic look of the reproduction.
SIZE AND MARGINS
There are 2-3 sizes available for each map.
The given size specification includes margins on each side of the map (usually min. 2cm / 0,8inch) so the map can be framed and mounted comfortably.
Handmade paper prints sized B or C can be ordered in frame only. We do not sell framed canvas prints.
Size A can be purchased unframed only.
The frames are made of wood and are available in several color modifications: black, dark brown and white.
Should you wish to have your map mounted before framing, please contact us for further details and pricing.
We currently offer three forms of payment: bank transfer, by credit or debit card (Visa and Mastercard) and via Paypal.
“A” size map prints are packed into spacious high-quality envelopes made of thick cardboard to prevent damage during shipment.
Size “B” and “C” map reproductions are rolled into a cardboard tube for further transport.
The products are normally dispatched no later than seven days after receipt of the order. The standard delivery time is 4-14 business days for EU countries and 7-20 business days for overseas destinations.
All maps are printed and stored in a non-smoking and pet-free environment.
