How It's Made
Your map design is wrapped around the drum with full-colour edge-to-edge printing. The fabric we use is stiff, matte and translucent with a slightly textured finish, giving your unique lampshades an authentic look. Turn on the light and enjoy seeing the soft glow through the shade. Even with the light off, your map will still be clear.
Your shade will come with a removable adaptor to alter the size of the fitting ring, as displayed in the image above. All lampshades are UK made by hand in London. Your map design is printed onto our semi-translucent fabric and then backed with a fire rated lining. Edge-to-edge printing all over with a white painted metal frame at the bottom of the table lamp shade. We are able to create ceiling shades on request but the detail of places and the map design may not be easily read if hung high up in the centre of a room.
We've never met anyone who doesn't love old maps, which is why we only use antique maps printed on our products. Their unique charm and history are part of who we are and is the foundation of all our products. Because of their age, many were drawn in the 19th Century, not all of the place names or locations we expect to see on modern day maps will be marked. By clicking through to customise your product you are able to view all the maps we have in our collection.
The original old maps have been digitally scanned and pieced together to cover the UK so you may find in places there are map joins or discolouration. We apologise that we cannot edit these maps and suggest, where possible, positioning the map so you are unable to see these joins or choosing an alternative scale that shows your location as it could detract from the finished product.
Our international maps showing countries across the world are taken from antique atlases. You will be able to zoom in on your area of interest and resize the map to fit a product of your choice. We suggest that you avoid including the borders of the pages on your product as they could detract from the beauty of the finished product. Be careful when zooming in too close, the original atlas has been scanned at a high quality but zooming in too far could mean the map is blurred or pixelated, where possible, we will advise customers on the best zoom level for their product.
