More Info - Finish


All of our maps are printed using a lithographic printing process to give bold colours and shimmering metallics. 

We print our maps on the highest quality FSC approved silk-coated paper. A sealer is applied to protect the inks, allowing you to gently wipe it down with a damp cloth. The print is finished with a gloss UV varnish to the landmasses, giving a luxurious finish.

BEST FOR: The most beautiful finish of all our maps, this fine, intricate print is what we recommended those who wish to display their framed map as graphic artwork.

Plastic Coated

Robust Write On/Wipe Off finish

Great for kids, kitchens and bathrooms.

Our plastic finished maps are created using the same high quality lithographic paper prints, but with the addition of gloss plastic lamination.

BEST FOR: More hardwearing, these maps work well in bathrooms, kitchens and anywhere that they may encounter sticky fingered children! The laminated finish means that it is also possible to write notes and messages with water based pens, making them particularly fun for kids.


Interact with The World using magnets

Turn your map into a noticeboard, plot your next trip or mark points of interest with our magnetic maps.

All of our maps can be ordered with a magnetic finish. The paper print is encapsulated in plastic then hand-mounted onto flexible sheet metal in our Somerset studio.

BEST FOR: This hardwearing map comes with small circular magnets for marking out places of interest and larger cylindrical magnets to attach postcards or notes. We recommend this for those who wish to use their map as an interactive notice board. It also comes with handy magnetic backing strips making it simple to attach directly onto a wall. Great for kitchens and offices.
