FAQs

These are our frequently asked questions.  Feel free to contact us at vintagecitymaps@gmail.com if you don’t find what you’re looking for.

Q:  Do your maps come framed?
A:  Our maps do not come framed.  The photos you see are for illustration purposes only.  It would be extremely expensive to frame and ship our maps, and we recommend you take them to your retail frame store.  Most of our regular-sized maps fit standard frames that you can get at Michael’s, Hobby Lobby, etc. for $25-$60, depending on the quality of the frame.  You can have them custom-framed as well.

Q:  How are they shipped?
A:  Our maps are enclosed in a protective plastic sleeve and shipped in a very sturdy mailing tube.

Q:  How long does it take to get a map once I place an order:
A:  Our maps usually ship out the same or the next business day, and you’ll receive an email with tracking information that day that it is shipped.  You can expect to receive the map in about 3 business days once they’re shipped, and about a week if ordering from Canada.

Q:  Do your maps come in smaller sizes other than what’s listed?
A:  We’ll be glad to re-format to a size that works for you, although we don’t recommend much smaller than our regular sized maps since those are pretty close to the original map sizes.  Just let us know what you need and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.

Q:  Can you print larger sizes than what’s listed?
A:  We can print up to 54″ x 144″ (4 1/2 feet by 12 feet).  Contact us for a price quote.

Q:  I don’t see my town in your catalog.  Do you have additional ones that are not on the site?
A:  We’re always working on a few and upload new ones from time to time.  Let us know what you’re looking for.  Not every city and town had a map done originally, so a map of your town may not exist.

Q:  Are your maps the real, authentic original ones?
A:  Our maps are restored reproductions of the originals, and we print them as we receive the orders.

Q:  I’ve seen a lot of dealers on the internet that sell the same maps.  How do they differ from your maps?
A:  Most all these other dealers simply download the maps from the National Archives and print out a copy in their current (usually dilapidated) condition.  Our maps are repaired and restored so that they have the look and feel of how they were when originally drawn way back when, and for about the same price (or less).  Our maps are an entirely different product.

Q:  Can you ship to a foreign country, other than Canada?
A:  Yes, we can ship to just about any major city in the world.  Contact us and we’ll let you know how much the additional shipping cost will be.
