Size chart

To help you pick the right size, here are some of my 'standard' map sizes next to each other, in portrait and landscape orientation.

Unique Maps size guide landscape
12x16in (30.5x41cm) 16x20in (41x51cm) 18x24in (45.5x51cm) 24x36in (61x91.5cm)

 

Unique Maps size guide portrait maps
12x16in (30.5x41cm) 16x20in (41x51cm) 18x24in (45.5x51cm) 24x36in (61x91.5cm)

 

Generally, if you have the space and the budget, I recommend buying a map that is 16x20 inches or larger. 

My maps are legible at all sizes, but the text can be very small when buying the smallest available size on my shop (usually 12x16 inches).

Buying unframed maps

If you buy an unframed old map from me, and plan to frame it yourself, please read this page. Otherwise you may get a map that doesn't fit your frame, which would be very frustrating for everyone.

General size guidelines

Generally, for maps up to and including 24x36 inches, the size in inches is exactly accurate.

So, for example, if you buy an 18x24 inch map, you should buy a frame that 'fits artwork' that is 18x24 inches.

If you need a map with an exact size in centimetres, please contact me. Usually the centimetre size on my shop is accurate, but it can be off by a few millimetres. So, to avoid disappointment, message me first.

Exact size in inches Exact size in centimetres
8x8 inches 20.32 x 20.32cm
8x10 inches 20.32 x 25.4cm
10x10 inches 25.4 x 25.4cm
12x16 inches 30.48 x 40.64cm
12x12 inches 30.48 x 30.48cm
14x14 inches 35.56 x 35.56cm
16x16 inches 40.64 x 40.64cm
16x20 inches 40.64 x 50.8cm
18x18 inches 50.8 x 50.8cm
18x24 inches 50.8 x 60.96cm
24x24 inches 60.96 x 60.96cm
24x30 inches 60.96 x 76.2cm
24x36 inches 91.44 x 91.44cm

 

Large maps

Please contact me if you are planning to frame a large map (over 40 inches or 100cm) yourself.

If you are buying your own frame, I recommend you wait for the frame to arrive, confirm the internal size of the frame, and then tell me the exact size that you need. Measure the width and height of the board on the back of the frame to get an accurate measurement.

Alternatively, buy the map from me, measure it when it arrives, and then order a frame to fit.

For large maps I can customise the size of your map for free.

If you are taking your map to a local framer, they will measure the map for you and then make the frame to fit.

Maps in "A" paper sizes

Many of my maps are now available in "A" paper sizes.

Please note that most A-size maps will come with a plain white border around the map to help with framing. You can easily snip off the border to make sure it fits perfectly into your frame.

If you are looking for an A size that is not available on my shop, such as 2A0 or A4, please contact me for pricing.

Personalise your map to make it truly unique (+$45). I will seamlessly add a message, place, or illustration to your map. Learn more.
"Original" looks just like the product photos. If you want an older looking map, select Aged (+$25). Learn more.

This is a designer face mask / neck gaiter featuring an unusual map of England & Wales, showing a highly detailed view of the geology of the two nations. This map was created by Roderick Impey Murchison and published by Chapman & Hall in 1843.

This face shield can be used as a headband, bandana, balaclava, wristband or neck warmer. This is not a medical grade face mask, but it could still help prevent the spread of coronavirus/covid-19 if you wear it when you go outside.

There is an incredible level of detail on this map, with dozens of annotations, towns, and other landmarks. They will all be easily legible on your designer English face mask, making it rather unique and memorable.

The face mask is:
- 95% polyester, 5% elastane (fabric composition may vary by 1%)
- Fabric weight: 6.19 oz/yd² (210 g/m²)
- Breathable fabric
- Washable and reusable
- Four-way stretch fabric that stretches and recovers on the cross and lengthwise grains
- One size
- Printed on one side, reverse side is left blank

My standard frame is a black wood frame. It is simple and quite modern looking. On maps up to 36 inches (91cm) the frame is 2cm (0.75in) wide. I use thicker frames on larger maps - usually between 35 and 60mm (1.4in to 2.4in).

In all cases I use super-clear museum-grade acrylic (perspex/acrylite) for the frame glass. It's lighter and safer than glass - and it looks better, as the reflectivity is lower.

All frames are provided "ready to hang", with either a string or brackets on the back. Very large frames will have heavy duty hanging plates and/or a mounting baton. If you have any questions... always get in touch!

If you want a different frame colour or material, click "customise your frame" before adding it to your basket. Learn more about my custom framing and mounting/matting.

Alternatively, I can also supply old map on canvas, foam board, cotton rag and other materials.

If you want to frame your map yourself, please read my map size guide first.

 

For most orders, delivery time is about 3 working days. Personalised orders can take longer, as I have to do the personalisation and send it to you for approval, which usually takes a day or two.

As Christmas draws closer, please take a look at my Christmas delivery deadlines.

Please note that for larger framed orders (over 40in/100cm), and some other framed sizes, the delivery time will be closer to 7-10 days.

If you need your order to arrive by a certain date, please contact me before you order so that we can find the best way of making sure you get your order in time.

I have production facilities all around the world where I print and frame maps. This means your map will be made locally, which cuts down on delivery time and reduces the chance of your map being damaged during delivery. There won't be any extra taxes or duties to pay, and we'll put less CO2 into the air.

All of my maps are well packaged and sent in a rugged tube if unframed, or surrounded by foam if framed.

I try to send out all maps within 1 or 2 days of receiving your order, though some products (like face masks or mugs) can take longer to make.

If you select Express Delivery at checkout your order we will prioritise your order and send it out by 1-day courier (Fedex, DHL, UPS, Parcelforce).

We are able to next-day delivery in some cases if you order before 10am. But usually it's best to contact me first before you order.

Read my full shipping policy

My maps are extremely high quality reproductions of original maps.

I source original, extremely rare maps from libraries, auction houses and private collections around the world, restore them at my London workshop, and then use specialist giclée inks and printers to create beautiful maps that look even better than the original.

My maps are printed on acid-free archival matte (not glossy) paper that feels very high quality and almost like card. In technical terms the paper weight/thickness is 10mil/190gsm. It's perfect for framing.

I print with Epson ultrachrome giclée UV fade resistant pigment inks - some of the best inks you can find.

Please contact me if you're looking for a print on canvas or cotton rag.

Map personalisation

If you want to make your old map really unique, I am able to personalise your map with a short message, for example:

- "Happy birthday, Ben! From Mum & Dad"

- "To My Beloved. Let's Explore The World Together!"

This message will be added to the map in such a way that it looks just like a real part of the map.

Select the "Personalise Map" option above if you'd like to add map personalisation to your map.

Learn more about my map personalisation service.

Get in touch if you're looking for more complex customisations and personalisations.

If you are not happy with your unique map for any reason, contact me for a no-quibble refund.

I am very confident you will like your old map. I have been doing this since 1984. I'm a 5-star Etsy seller. I have sold tens of thousands of maps and have over 1,500 real 5-star reviews.

I use a unique process to restore my maps that is massively time consuming and labour intensive. Hunting down the original maps can take months. I use state of the art and eye-wateringly expensive technology to scan and restore the maps. As a result, I guarantee my maps are a cut above the rest - that's why I can offer a no-quibble refund.

Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (200cm, 6.5ft+) and I can frame and deliver them to you as well, via special oversized courier. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
