Our original city map is a stylised yet accurate street map for the design-orientated Londoner.
London has it all. From Pop Art to world-class architects, Shakespeare to the West End shows, Roman remains to the Olympic stadium. Our London City Map with Cycle Routes is fast becoming a design classic and shows off every detail of this ancient metropolis in a modern light.
The Thames shimmers in watery slate-blue, parks pop out with gentle apple or the bolder forest greens. Five categories of cycle routes are prioritised in eye-catching orange and yellow or aqua and lime. Whether you're a lycra-clad commuter, basket-wielding shopper, determined walker or just pining after your next trip back, this map will help you plan your best routes around the big smoke.
Paper: The map comes as an art-quality print, ready for framing or pinning/tacking to a wall.
Plastic: 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 maps are all printed with a sealer that protects the inks, allowing your map to be gently wiped down with a 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.
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.
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.
Details: Shaded relief layer, international/national and administrative borderlines. Cities, major towns, highest peaks, major rivers/lakes, motorways, major roads and principal airports.
Scale: 1:30,000 (approximately).
