How much do you charge?
This is custom work, so there’s no “flat rate” — every project is unique. We do have a minimum project charge of USD$250.00. Pricing is based on studio time, so the larger and more detailed your project is, the more it will cost.
How do I get a price?
To find out what your project will cost, just go to our “How It Works” page.
How long does it take?
A small project, such as a website locator map, will likely take about a week. A large detailed city map, showing all the streets, may take a month or more. We always let you know in your quotation how long your project will take.
Can I see the map before I pay for it?
Yes! We always send a draft of your map for you to approve, before invoicing.
What if I want to make changes to the map?
Just let us know after you’ve looked over the draft. We’ll tell you if the kind of changes you want will entail an extra charge. (They usually don’t.)
Why wouldn’t I just use Google Maps?
Google Maps (and Bing, and Yahoo, and MapQuest) do a great job of quick online mapping and driving directions. But it’s impossible for them to stay up-to-date or to customize to your needs. That’s why you never see Google Maps in books or magazines. If you need specific content or look-and-feel, you need custom mapping.
Do I own the map once I’ve paid for it?
Yes, you do. We don’t charge royalties or user fees. However, we do ask that you not resell the map without our permission. And we also retain rights to the original graphic files.
What about copyright?
We always work from royalty-free digital data. You don’t have to be concerned about publishing or posting a map with any legal encumbrances.
