Some of the ways our printable maps are used

The Printmaps editor produces high-res 300 dpi maps in PNG and PSD (Photoshop) format plus scalable SVG vector maps. Map features in SVG and PSD files come in separate layers, so you can edit map features without damaging any features underneath. 

Our customers use the Printmaps editor to effortlessly map routes – travel itineraries, hike and cycle trails, city walks or simply directions – and to overlay their points of interest on a map. The editor makes it really easy to create fold maps, maps for touristic folders and brochures or guide book maps.

Our cheap entry level pricing enables customers with very low print circulation numbers to afford our maps. Typical examples include real estate exposés and photo books, printed in low numbers but needing high quality location or route maps.

Many guide book publishers illustrate their travel guides and hiking guidebooks entirely with Printmaps maps. You can satisfy all typical mapping needs with our maps, ranging from overview maps and general location maps to activity maps with hiking or cycle routes, city maps / street maps to direction maps.
