We have a new lake home in Northern Wisconsin and I wanted to have a cool, modern, unique map of the water in the area. There are lots of maps out there that look like something that you find in local gift shops, but this one is so much cooler. I did the black because we have a modern industrial vibe going in our place. The paper is absolutely beautiful. It is thick and soft to the touch, it definitely was not printed on typical art print paper. The print is very clear and clean. I received a e-mail verifying our address after my order and the correspondence was very polite, clear and friendly. My item came in perfect condition in a very sturdy tube, in a very timely manner. I am super happy with it and if you are contemplating… go for it, you will be happy.
