Watercolor Pencil Maps by Rick Lederer-Barnes

Cambridge, New York 1 Sale On Etsy since 2015

Announcement   Welcome to my map store. I create unique, digitally enhanced, watercolor pencil maps suitable for display in a home or office. What is a digitally enhanced map you ask? I start by creating a watercolor pencil painting that highlights the key features of my area of interest and uses natural tones reflective of the landscape. The watercolor pencil also gives the painting some texture that would not be possible in just watercolor alone. The painting is then scanned and enhanced with digital data to create a topographic illustration that highlights the varied landforms of the area in the map. Depending on the map, additional data may be added to further emphasize interesting features. My store is focused on the Northeast at the moment, and additional states will be coming in the future. So please stop by from time to time and see what's new. Thanks for visiting!

8x10's on sale during the month of June, only $15!

Returns and exchanges
If you are unhappy with your order please contact me and I will do what I can to resolve any problems. If you are unhappy with an order you may return it for a refund, less shipping costs. If an item arrives damaged, please send me a photo of the damage and I will send out a replacement at no additional charge.
Payment
Payments are due at the time of purchase using either Etsy's Direct Payment option or using PayPal. PayPal payments will appear as "UPSTATE GIS" on your statement. I am required to collect sales tax from New York State residents. I have done my best to set the rates based on zip codes, however zip codes and counties do not always line up. If you are not charged enough sales tax I will end up making it up on my end, you do not need to do anything. However if you are overcharged please contact me and I will issues a refund for the difference once the tax rate for your address has been confirmed.
Shipping
All shipping is completed through USPS Priority Mail and includes tracking and insurance. Orders are mailed out within 1-2 business days. Priority mail typically arrives within 2-3 business days, but it is not guaranteed. Prints that are 11"x14" or smaller are mailed flat in a "rigid" mailer with additional protection within the mailer. Larger prints are rolled-up and mailed in a tube (either triangle or round).
Additional policies and FAQs
At this time I am not doing custom maps, however if there is a particular state/county/town you would like to see in my store I will consider adding it. I may add custom orders in the future.
