What is the difference between your maps?
Our National Park Series Maps are original designs based off of the maps given out by our National Parks at their Park Ranger Stations. We recreated the maps with clean design and a variety of color palettes.
Our TOPO Series Maps are based off of topographic quadrants made by the USGS to map ski and snowboard mountains as well as their surrounding backcountry. They consist solely of contour lines to illustrate the shapes and slopes of the mountains with a dot to signify the base of the resort.
Our Range Series Maps are the most complete and detailed maps ever made using contour lines to represent the topography of entire mountain ranges. The Range Series combines the data of hundreds of smaller USGS quadrant maps to form a detailed construction of mountain ranges from their southern to northern most borders. Due to the nature of the maps as art pieces, we simplified them by only including natural features shown through contour lines, rivers and lakes, and the most iconic trails within their borders. There are no roads, cities or towns, or other man-made elements on the maps.
Our Hydrology Series shows the inherent beauty of North America's system of waterways, delivering life throughout our land. They map every river and stream (both perennial and intermittent), along with all lakes with a diameter greater than 6 miles.
Our Historic Maps are reproduction prints of original topographic maps from the mid-1900's. We used high resolution scans of the old maps and carefully remastered them for a cleaner look. Each map was digitally enhanced, removing old stains, stamps, handwriting, and discolorations, as well as being recolored to bring them back to their glory days. Although enhanced, they still show signs of aging and some original flaws.
What is the difference between the Paper Print and the Canvas Gallery Wrap?
Both are printed using our top of the line Canon ipf8400 printer with their 12 color inkset. The inks are archival and produce vibrant rich colors which will last a lifetime.
Where are your prints made?
In our shop in San Diego, CA by our small team. Most of the materials we use are made in the USA.
What about your awesome shirts?
All of our shirts are made in the USA and are American Apparel brand. Although the designs are all ours, we get them printed in LA and shipped from our supplier. You will typically get your shirt separate from the rest of your order if you order prints along with it. They usually take about 3-5 days before shipping plus the shipping time of 1-3 days.
What is your return policy?
We stand by everything we print. If you are unhappy with the print send it back in new condition to us within 30 days for a full refund excluding shipping. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
T-shirts may be exchanged, not refunded, for another size.
Can you design a map not already on the site?
Yes, we've done designs for many of the most popular outdoor areas in America but obviously not all of them. We will be adding more as time goes on and would love to hear what you are looking for. If we get enough requests for a park we will bump it up the list. Please be patient though, they take time to design. Please email us your requests at email@example.com.
If you would like a custom map made that we don't have in our pipeline, or just want it quicker, we are happy to do it. There will be a design charge of $200 plus the cost of the print you want. They take about two weeks to design plus printing time. Email us with your request and we'll answer any questions you may have.
Can you do custom colors for a map?
Yes, but there will be a $50 charge and you must know the RGB color profiles for each variant. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org what you would like and we will confirm the details with you.
Can you do custom sizes?
Yes, let us know what you'd like and we will get a price for you. We can make prints up to 40x60 inches in size.
Do you wholesale?
Yes, please contact us at email@example.com for wholesale opportunities.
