OUR PRINTING PROCESS (printers, inks & paper)
Our nautical charts and maps are printed on high-end professional equipment using art-quality archival inks and paper.
The paper used for 18”x18” prints and larger is an acid-free 32lb bond with a smooth matte, non-glare finish. Prints 13”x19” and smaller are printed on sturdy acid-free card stock with a matte finish.
The inks used in the process are professional grade to provide rich and authentic color and are acid-free to ensure that the prints will not fade over time.
The size of each print refers to the actual size of the paper on which they are printed, leaving a .25” white boarder around the image. The prints fit nicely inside standard sized frames of the same dimension.
