FAQ

Are these 3D maps?

No, These are NOT 3D maps. They are 2D flat prints that look like 3D maps. You cannot touch or feel any relief, even if you buy a framed map.

Are all labels and keys legible?

There is NO guarantee that small keys and labels will be legible. You may not be able to read text, especially in shaded and mountainous areas and depending on the size of the map. These are DECORATIVE maps.

Are these scientific or useful maps for study?

They are NOT for study, reference or close-ups. They look nice on walls and are great gifts but their purpose is only decoration, something to be seen as a whole.

Payment

We offer some payment options such as credit cards, Apple Pay and Paypal. We hope to have more options soon. If you are unable to make the payment send us a message here or to our e-mail thinkaboutmaps@gmail.cm

Local taxes

Taxes are based on shipping location. It's depends on your country/state. Some local taxes may be applicable.

Wrong or damaged prints

Sometimes I use a specialized company service to print and send out the maps, depending of where you live. That makes the process faster. Considering that, I can't see all maps before they are sent out. Let me know if you have any problem with your map.

Do you ship internationally?

Yes, we do. And we offer free shipping worldwide!

Retail prices and packages

Retail prices are never displayed on packing slips, but in compliance with shipping regulations, they can be shown on the outside of a package only when items are shipped internationally.

Gift message

We include gift messages outside the packages. Just leave your message in the cart note at checkout before placing your order. Gift messages will be automatically printed on the packing slip.

Where can I find my tracking number?

We will fulfill the map and send it out and then send you a message with the order's tracking info bye mail. Please, send us a message if you did get it.

Yellowed areas

Some maps may contain yellow or smudged areas (including borders). That occurs because I make maps based in very old maps and it may be impossible to remove these yellowed areas. That is not a printing issue.

Do you do custom maps?

I'm not doing custom maps right now but if you want a custom map send a message or an e-mail. I don't charge extra fees to make custom maps but making maps depends on the availability of old maps. May be impossible to do a good map of your state/province/island/country.

Verifying your address

Please, check your information and address before placing your order. That can avoid a lot of problems. There have been cases where customers have entered the address from another state, as an example.

How long does fulfillment take?

2-7 business days from January to October and 2-10 in November and December.
