This map or print has been carefully restored and recreated onto a heavy 100% cotton canvas and not a fragile paper. My maps can be easily rolled to be presented as a gift or retrieved from storage to be unrolled to reveal a fascinating historical conversation piece. Search your family history and genealogy.
On certain monitors and smart phones, colors may look excessively bright because your screen is lit from behind. I can assure you that the colors will not be so garish when you receive your map. Instead you will be appreciative of the heft and quality of the highly textured canvas, which can sustain a certain amount of rolling up and abuse. These were designed to be heirlooms.
Your item has a protective coating which allows it to be handled with reasonable care and to be framed WITHOUT heavy, breakable, glaring glass. You could also pin you canvas directly to the wall with the map pins provided. Feel free to run your hands along the nicely textured surface.
AN IMPORTANT WORD ABOUT TRIMMING YOUR CANVAS:
Your map will often come with small margin of white border. This can be easily trimmed off with sharp scissors unfinished edges. This provides extra protection in shipping and versatility in the presentation.
If you intend to frame your item, you should not crop it any further, but leave the excess margin for the framer to deal with. These canvases can easily cropped with sharp, sturdy scissors.
You can also frame it yourself! Not all that hard to do. A rustic looking frame will enhance its appearance or just use the 4 map pins, provided at no charge, to tack to your wall or message board. There's also a little piece of decorative string to tie your map if you are gifting it!
