Map Styles


With A Mount + Data
Showing Latitude & Longitude Information

The maps are framed with a mount which is cut to show the latitude and longitude references. These maps do not include the key.

The maps are cold mounted onto board for longevity, and prevent 'cockling' of the map. The mount is of conservation quality.

This is our most popular style of mount.

With A Mount, Close Framed

The maps are framed with a mount which is cut to just cover the edges of the map. These maps do not include the key.

The maps are cold mounted onto board for longevity, and prevent 'cockling' of the map. The mount is of conservation quality.

This style of mounting allows the map to be reduced in overall size where space is limited.

Without A Mount

The maps are framed without a mount and include the key. This section can be personalised with a family photograph or text.

The maps are cold mounted onto board for longevity and to prevent 'cockling' of the map.

A great present!

Great for exploring whilst walking, running or cycling and for learning more about your surroundings. The maps cover 20km across (12.5 miles) or have a radius of 10km (6.25 miles) from the centre point.

They can be used to locate main features and identify the human & physical features of the area, along with settlement and economic activities.

We can provide a map specifically for your business location, working with you to get the best map coverage for your location.


We have supplied maps for businesses that provide services within a particular area, for example - distribution & delivery, care visiting & estate agents.

Cockling Or Waving

This is a very good example of 'cockling' of a print. This was brought to me for refurbishment, the frame and backing was intact but the map had to be replaced.

This is caused by fluctuations in temperature and humidity. The paper tries to expand and contract but where it is restricted it can't move, so the result is the paper cockles. The Ordnance Survey maps are printed on a fairly thin paper base, the thinner the paper, the more prone the paper is to cockling. This is an irreversible problem.

We have always cold mounted our maps before framing to prevent this problem occurring, I was pleased when they brought this in as it showed what would happen otherwise!

With frame only purchases - with or without a mount, we advise the customer on how to minimise this problem happening.
