A stylised reference map of Europe.
These maps are great for plotting travels within Europe with all major roads and motorways marked.
Designed to compliment the World Maps from our Colour Maps range - they are part reference map part wall art .
We transform the traditional view of Europe to create a reference map that's illuminating with information and dazzling with data. The exquisite detail and vivid colour mean will make it equally loved as a decorative centrepiece or as a study aid in a teenager's bedroom.
The levels of information on this map go well beyond the ordinary, with our signature layered metallic sea-levels (who knew the Black Sea was deeper than any of the seas surrounding the British Isles?) Swot up on your capital cities and your population densities, your mountain ranges and your major rivers. Never mind GCSE geography, your next pub quiz is going to be a walkover.
It's a glorious replacement for those fusty old maps of the schoolroom and might even encourage a bit of homework from everyone in the family. What's the capital of Lichtenstein anyone?
We print our maps on to the highest quality FSC approved silk-coated paper using a lithographic printing process. This works like a mechanised version of traditional screen-printing. A plate is made for each colour and then laid down individually, offering a stunning-quality print, with great definition and colour impact. A sealer is applied to protect the inks and gloss UV varnish used to add contrast and highlight boundaries.
Plastic Coated:We encapsulate the map in plastic to create a durable write-on/ wipe-off finish. Perfect for children or anyone with sticky fingers.
Magnetic:We mount our plastic coated map on to flexible sheet metal to create a durable, wipeable, magnetic surface. The map features magnetic strips on the back to enable you to fix it to the wall with ease. We supply stainless steel magnetic balls to mark points of interest and strong steel cylinders to convert the map in to a notice board.
Framed:We frame our maps without glass to display the print quality in all its glory. The sealed finish allows your map to be cleaned gently with a damp cloth.
Framed Magnetic:This option combines the interactive nature of the magnetic map with the sharp presentation of our professional framing service.
Hanging Rails: The rails come in two parts and work through the power of magnetism. The first piece is attached to your wall with rawl plus and screws (supplied). Your map is then sandwiched between this and the top rail by magnets in the rails. Sold in pairs so that you have a second rail to weigh the bottom of the map down.
Details: Country boundaries, capital and major cities, rivers, highest peaks, sea depths, North/South Pole projections and a shaded physical relief layer.
Warning: Our maps are approximately a million times more beautiful in real life than on your computer screen. The luminous colour and glossy metallics have been known to cause palpitations, so have a chair handy when it arrives.
