This is a museum quality antique map reproduction print available in multiple sizes as either a paper print or Giclee photo paper print. Giclee prints are also available with dry-mounting to a 1" deep plaque mount style frame with 1/8" beveled edge (Choose from 30 frame edge color choices).
All reproduction prints are printed as "museum quality", using advanced ink formulas and durable museum quality paper. The reproduction prints reflect the state of repair of the original conserved document. Stains and imperfections reflected in the original map at the time it was collected for conservation are left un-retouched, as they reflect the character and charm of the vintage original. Some major imperfections, such as dark fold lines have been removed when possible. Maps are printed as ordered and are not returnable unless received damaged.
Each map is produced as a detailed museum quality archive print. This special printing process is known as Giclee (zhee-CLAY) and is commonly used to produce very high quality fine art prints. The result is an exquisitely detailed print of substantially higher quality than a standard map poster.
