People love maps!

I’ve been creating and printing custom topographic maps for more than 30 years. The options, sizes, and cropping are virtually limitless. If you have an idea for a particular region, size or style you want, please feel free to call me at 719-486-6226 or info@kevinmastin.com.

 

Lake County Map

For these “complete county” maps I don’t recommend printing them any smaller than about 42″ wide by 48″.

A Note about Topographic Maps:

I use the most current USGS data maps when accuracy is most important, such as this sample (below). However, I feel the style of the new data has a “cold” feeling to it. For my “just-for-fun” reference maps I still prefer the classic, 7.5 minute series. So it is very important to remember that some of these have not been revised since the 60s! If you are living in a newer subdivision, your roads and trails may not be on there!

Course Maps and Event Maps

Do you need a custom map map for an event or running race course? I can certainly customize them to meet your needs.

Poster (Giclée) Printing

Giclée is just a fancy term for high-quality inkjet printing. My printer is an Epson 9600 Ultrachrome (a great machine). It is 7-ink system: Black, Light Black, Cyan, Light Cyan, Magenta, Light Magenta and Yellow. It is a roll-fed printer so I can print large: 44″ wide by very long! Larger prints such as this 7-foot map can be printed in multiple sections and pieced together. The seams line up very well and are barely visible.
