Are your maps packaged well for shipping ?
Here's what one customer said: "I just received the map I ordered a few days ago. The map is gorgeous, but I was expecting that. What I wasn't expecting was for the packaging to be just as impressive as the map itself. Kudos to both the map maker and whoever packed it for shipping!" -TD, Paradise, Utah
How was the Essential Geography of the USA made ?
I made this map using Adobe Illustrator based on location data provided by my partner in such things, Pat Dunlavey. I estimate that my design and creation of the Essential Geography took 6,000 hours - about three years of average work time, compressed into about 24 months.
Can a laminated map be framed ?
Yes! This method of display is less expensive than framing behind glass, yet it still encourages the viewer to run their fingers over the map. My laminated wall maps are heat-sealed in 1.7 mil clear vinyl, an easy-care finish. You can also write on them with a dry erase marker. When a traditional framing with glass is appropriate, I recommend the poster paper version.
Can you recommend an inexpensive way to hang my map?
