Gregory T. Woolston


A Cart Shop on Capitol Hill

My name is Gregory Woolston, and I'm a cartographer. Some people are surprised that cartographers still exist: "Hasn't everything already sort of been discovered?" And others seem unsure about what geographers study: "What's the capital of Gabon?" For those unfamiliar, geography examines the why of where, or why places are organized as they are. As a student, I research hegemonic conceptions and alternative perceptions of urban spaces, especially with regard to architecture. My findings always involved maps, so I became interested in cartographic design. This shop marries my interests, and I now offer well-designed studies of specific areas.

With regard to my process, I design all of my maps using QGIS and the Adobe Creative Suite from a studio in the former Pelican Bay Building on Seattle's Capitol Hill. There used to be a large mural titled "City in the Sky" beneath my windows; it featured many cartographic qualities, so I feel inspired here. I produce prints on Red River Paper using an Epson SureColor P800. I mat them with supplies from Blick Art Materials and Matboard and More, and I place them in handmade frames from other Etsy sellers. I ship orders via USPS through their nearby office at 23rd and Union, a unique corner representative of broader changes taking place throughout Seattle.

Please check out all of my maps and feel free to make a request! If you need a map of your own for any purpose, send me a note.

Returns and exchanges
If you have any concerns regarding the quality of a print you purchased, please send me a note. I'm happy to ship you a new print or provide a refund. I'm committed to your experience and will make reasonable adjustments for any customer past, present, or future for as long as I'm in business.
All prints are shipped via USPS First-Class or Priority Mail. I package my art in a flat mailer with a piece of cardboard, such that it won't be bent. This usually works well, but every once in a while, a print shows up bent. If this is the case, simply send me a picture and I'll ship you a new print as soon as possible. I appreciate your understanding.

If you require expedited shipping via UPS, please send me a note. I'll make the necessary arrangements and set up a custom order for the extra cost.
