d'SHOP @ Wide World Maps & MORE!

Take a look at our shop facility. Here is where we do the laminating, mounting, and framing for our retail stores as well as a wide variety of graphic arts companies, businesses and individuals. With our experienced staff, state of the art equipment and our long time tried and true techniques we offer a specialized quality service. Since maps are typically quite large we have developed an expertise for handling large sizes. We have 60” wide laminating and mounting capabilities with developed techniques for dealing with even larger sizes. We can do the little ones as well, but be sure to call us first when you have “a big one” and we’ll do the job right.

Cover it with a plastic coating, protect your print, poster, photo and cards with lamination. We offer a variety of laminating films with various thicknesses and finishes. Lamination bonds a layer of very durable plastic film permanently to both sides of your paper product. When laminated, surfaces are markable and washable while being protected from use, abuse and the environment. We can handle quantities of large or small items. With our high speed production equipment we can handle large quantities of small pieces (24” or less width) with a fast turn around, perfect for restaurant menus and the like. Our retail stores each have a 24” wide laminating machine for small on demand jobs while our complete shop facility has the equipment for all of the larger pieces and jobs.

Maps and more, we can mount almost any flat-surface item onto a board, a process whereby we permanently attach your print to a graphics board using an adhesive and mounting press. We have over 30 years of experience, specializing in foamcore and special materials mounting. We are experts with large size, oversized, magnetic mountings and custom applications.

Our years of experience framing maps makes us the right choice when you need large items framed. Once the map, chart, sign or other graphics are mounted we can finish the job with a variety of finishing materials. Many choices are available, from a very economical plastic edge moulding to a selection of classic wood and contemporary metal picture frame moldings.
