Creative Cartography and Landscape Photography.

I am a geographer, GIS specialist, and digital cartographer. I work at the intersection of geography, design, and communication. The under pinning of most of my work is the creative representation of the earth and its landforms.

This store is basically an outlet for map stuff I make that’s too cool to keep to myself! My maps and graphics are all created digitally from a mix of geospatial data and manual design work. Prints are fulfilled via my production partner Printful.

In addition to cartographic products I may also list occasional landscape photography prints, physical terrain models, or other adventure or exploration graphics.

Feel free to get in touch with me anytime if you have questions or comments about my work.

Cheers,
David

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

If you find a print in my store that you'd like an alternate version of (alternate colors, with or without frame etc.) or if you have a map graphic request, feel free to let me know. I may not be able to immediately create a custom order for some requests, but will keep track of recurring requests as I make new work.

Shipping

Unframed prints are rolled and carefully packed in a rigid cardboard tube for shipping. Packages are sent via USPS Priority or First-Class Mail. Posters take about 2 - 5 days to print and 3 - 5 days to ship.

Framing your print

Most of my listings are for unframed posters. The advantage to buying unframed is cheaper shipping and custom framing options. For your convenience, some posters are offered with an inexpensive framed option (semi-hardwood wood and acrylic "glass").

Inexpensive frames in standard sizes can be found at your local frame shop, or online. All prints with a color background have a roughly 1/2" to 1" natural white border intended to show when framed without a mat. The border can be trimmed for use in a smaller frame if desired.

Take care when removing a rolled print for framing of mounting to avoid bending or creasing the print. Prints with large areas of dark ink may smudge if not handled with care.

Care instructions

Rolled prints are fragile and easily creased. Please take care to un roll your print slowly onto a clean flat surface. You may need to press the print down with books or boards for an hour or two before mounting to make sure the print stays flat and easier to handle.
