What are the different types of map prints available?
City Maps or Star Maps
We currently offer two different types of custom map print styles: City Maps or Star Maps. Each of the two map options can be tailored in terms of the map location and the text underneath as well as various styles. Check out our interactive map maker to see it in action.
How big are the prints and what size should I get?
We currently offer four different print sizes: 21cm x 30cm (A4), 30cm x 42cm (A3), 50cm x 70cm (B2), and 70cm x 100cm (B1).
Do the prints come framed?
Our custom prints come to your hot little hand as a high quality print, unframed. We do not currently offer framed prints as we have found individuals like yourself would rather pick and choose their own frames to suit there unique styles. Plus, you save a small fortune by framing it yourself.
How are the prints packaged?
Our custom print maps will make it to your hot little hand in protective wrap and cardboard packaging. We package everything with love in-house to ensure that it leaves us in excellent condition (no mass produced drop-shipping in sight here). Our custom print maps are packaged snug as bugs in either a rigid envelope (A3 and A4 sizes) or a triangular post tube.
Are you really based in Australia?
Of course! We live in the beautiful sunshine state of Queensland, in the glorious city of Brisbane. If you see us out and about come and say hi, we love catching up with customers and hearing about the stories behind their custom print maps.
I'm no astronomer, but how do you make sure the night sky star maps are correct?
Our custom star maps are based on a dataset of stars from a given date. From that date the stars will move each day and year so we use a mathematics formula to calculate their position. Next step is to offset the position, as the earth is round we can calculate the hours it's postponed with. The result is a beautiful star map of the night sky on a particular date at a particular location.
