Customer Service

Making A Purchase

Making a purchase of a map could not be easier. Just browse our shop, and add to basket the map/s you wish to buy, be sure to select the correct format if there is a choice (for example, paper map or encapsulated map). This will then take you to your basket. Then you just click proceed to checkout to complete the order and you will be asked for a few details that we need to be able to satisfy the order.

We accept Visa, Mastercard, Switch, Electron, Amex, Solo and Paypal.
Diners Club are not accepted.

Shipping And Handling

Shipping charges depend on type and weight of map products ordered and delivery location. For UK orders only, Free delivery is offered on all orders of value £50 or over. This covers the total product cost including VAT but does not include the delivery charge.

Delivery Schedule

Your map order is generally dispatched within 48 hours, however please allow longer for framed maps as they are manufactured to order. UK orders for maps are normally delivered within 7 business days . International orders for maps are generally received in under 14 days. For a product to be sent ‘next day’, the order must be placed before noon Monday to Friday. Wall maps are rolled and sent in tubes so the postman might leave it with a neighbour or take it back to the sorting office if you’re not there to receive it. You may wish to consider having a tube delivered to your work place to ensure someone is there to receive it.

Note. Deliveries to Northern Ireland, Scottish Highlands & Islands, Isle of Man, Isles of Scilly and Channel Islands can take longer and may not be possible on 24 hour turnaround. That’s not to say we won’t try though!

We use Royal Mail 1st Class service, Royal Mail Parcels and Parcelforce to deliver our products. Be aware that map tubes can take longer to go through the postal system-probably because of their shape.

For overseas delivery, maps over 900mm are likely to incur an additional postage charge. Please contact us for details.


To protect your wall map, when we roll it up we wrap it in some scrap paper which can often be an old map. Don’t be concerned that we have stuck sellotape to your map! We haven’t, this is the paper wrapping, your map is safely protected inside.

Back Orders

If your item is not in stock, we will back order for you. You will always be emailed with the option to cancel your order if you would rather not wait for your map.

Tax Charges

Where appropriate VAT at 20% will be added to the order, you will see this on your checkout total. Note that maps and guidebooks do not attract VAT in the UK but posters and map data do.

Credit Card Security

All credit card numbers are encrypted in the software when the order is placed using 128 bit SSL encryption. They are only decrypted after they reach our computer. They are not held in clear text on any web site.


We appreciate that you can’t ‘handle’ our map products like you could in a shop so we guarantee you a full refund if the map product you order from our map shop doesn't meet your expectations.
