Our products are 2D prints with 3D effect, so they are FLAT to touch and NOT raised or 3D maps.
You might have the feeling that it is 3D printed, but it is not, it is printed on paper and it is in 2D, so there is not a real relief to touch.
We start from a 3D models digitally rendered and then we print on high quality paper, to show the relief of the territory, through the elaboration of Digital Elevation Model data.

Very nice print, the team at VizCart took a lot of time to work out the best color scheme for my custom map with me, very good customer service!
Thank you for my fantastic custom map of the Lofoten islands! VizCart was an absolute pleasure to work with – they proposed a number of different maps, and rendered two of them for me so that I could choose my preferred one since I couldn’t make up my mind! They were quick to reply to my questions and provided helpful advice on dimensions and material. Quick shipping and great print quality. I would highly recommend them if you’re thinking about a custom map.
Beautiful map, and the sellers were fantastic in creating and perfecting a customized product that was exactly what we wanted. Thanks so much!
The product description is heavily misleading. What you expect after reading this is a haptic relief map. What you get is a normal printed map. The very last sentence (very short) says „ Our products are 2D prints with 3D effect, so they are flat to touch.“ Again I‘m missing the 3D-effect. Nothing to touch, nothing to experience. Not even a light relief. Very misleading, very misleading. And overall disappointing. The map was supposed to be a gift to my boyfriend who studies product material and surely it would have amazed him, if it was what it suggested it would be. Now it‘s just a thing to look at. The print itself looks very nice and even the budget paper quality turns out to be a nice and detailed print. Read the description carefully, my advice. Otherweise you will be disappointed, as I am.
