I can do it, but the mailing tube required to send a 46" piece of paper (there is always a border, you know) will be more expensive. I'll look into it, but my guess is $12 total for the printout, including shipping.

Althrim, are you still printing out maps? What is the paper quality like for these things? I have a fairly large battle board that i normally use, and i cover it with a sheet of hard plastic so we can scribble on the paper products. I've never taken the jump to 3d terrain very much, but i love a highly detailed 2d map.

This was posted a couple years ago, but if you still have a color plotter, I have some maps that need printing.

I'd be happy to pay some money over cost for your trouble.

www.Gamer-Printshop.com offers large format color printing of Dundjinni files at very affordable prices. We offer large format laminating and mounting to foamboard as well.

Will ship internationally.

Yes, I am still "in business". Regarding Gamer-Printshop, looks like their product printed on heavier-duty paper than I use, but my prices are lower. And I don't have lamination or foamboard services.

However, I print any map up to 32x40 in full color for $12 including shipping. They have specific size categories (though there may be flexibility in them). Their 24x36 is $30, their 36x48 is $60.

I can print up to 54" maps, but the price goes up due to the size of the mailing tube I have to buy to send it. The price for maps between 40" and 54" is $20. Still far lower in price than their largest map size and a potentially larger map.

So, if you're satisfied with heavy bond paper, don't need lamination and/or foamboard, and want to get more maps for your money, I'm still your guy.

Tintagel,

Awesome map, but much larger in size than any plotter I've ever heard of. If you can disect it down to smaller parts (one side must be smaller than 54"), then I can print it for you, but each printout will be $12.

At first glance, it looks like it could cut down to three long images not more than 54 squares wide along lines North to South, though this will likely slice up the large temple area on the north end. I've done large maps like this before for my own games, and found it is best to try to print off complete sections of rooms rather than just slicing it up geometrically. You always end up with piecemeal rooms on the latter.

Let me know what you decide.

The above statements are all made under the assumption that you want the map at 1"=5' scale. If you just want a nice big color printout and aren't concerned about scale, I can do that quite easily.

Actually, that's exactly what I want. Please print it at the largest size you can, but don't worry about getting it to 1" = 5ft scale. That would be 1/2 inch squares and only 35 x 45 inches.   

Thanks!

Tintagel,

Please email me your mailing address so I can ship it to you when it's done.

Also, since the 35x45 size is outside of the 32x40 max for $12 printouts, the price will be $20 via Paypal.

Thanks.

Okay, DJ fans...here's an update on my services for printing your works of art on a high-quality color plotter.

Any map up to 32"x40" is $10, including shipping.

Maps larger than that, up to 48" on it's shortest side, are $15.

I can also laminate any map up to 24" on it's shortest side for an additional $3.

Send the finished map as a zipped .jpg, .png, or .bmp to althrim(at)hotmail.com. Please send payment via PayPal to the same address.

I've been doing a lot of printouts lately, and the new plotters and paper create an awesome finished product.

I'm interested in printing maps sized 24x36 and 36x36 that has a 1.5 inch grid.

-How much would it cost to print the 24x36, 36x36 ?

-It looks like lamination is available for the 24x36 but not the 36x36, correct ?

-Double-sided printing; has it been done, does it look ok and not bleed to the other side ?

If by 24x36, you mean 24 squares by 36 squares at 1.5" each square, the final product is 36"x54", which is $15. The 36 sq. x 36 sq. map comes out 54"x54", which is something I can print, but the tube size gets much bigger and they aren't cheap (USPS provides free tubes up to 36" long). For printouts larget than 36" on their shortest side, I have to add $5 to cover the tube. So, the 36 sq. x 36 sq. map would be $20.

Lamination is only up to 24" wide (finished product). If you're needing 1.5" squares for your map, then nothing more than 16 squares wide can be laminated.

No double-sided printing is available due to the fact that the plotter won't take a sheet-feed nor print on both sides simultaneously.
