About Our Products
We make museum-quality, archival print reproductions of antique maps. We have maps of locations from all over the world, covering all periods from the 15th century into the 20th century.
Highest Quality Materials
We use only the highest quality materials in all our products. We always print on 100% cotton, acid-free fine art papers with archival pigment inks. Our maps are printed on paper with a matte surface and have no gloss or sheen at all.
All of our products are archival prints. An archival print is one that is made of materials that are designed to preserve the print for as long as possible. The best materials for archival preservation: 1) are acid-free (acidic materials can cause discoloration and deterioration of paper), 2) are made with 100% cotton paper (cotton is considered to be one of the best archival materials for printed artwork), and 3) use pigment inks (pigment inks are made from naturally occurring ingredients, not from synthetic dyes, and as such are very stable and will resist changing or fading over time). If cared for and framed properly, our prints will last for generations with no noticeable fading or discoloration.
We're happy to customize your print in any way you'd like. The most common customizations are changing the print size or border size from what is offered on our site. We can also alter the color and tone of a print, for example, to make it darker, lighter, more yellowed, etc. In most cases we can make alterations for free, though if you need something complex we may charge an extra fee for image preparation. If you'd like some other type of alteration, feel free to contact us to discuss whether we can produce what you need.
All of our prints come without any framing or mounting. At this time we do not offer any framing services. Check out our Care & Framing page for tips on how to frame your print.
