I've looked over a great many products that they offer, but I haven't seen anything that was obvious to me could be used to make a map. I should be asking what YOU are plotting and/or have seen?!?

Aha!

Well, let me link you to something I had purchased from them a while back : https://www.zazzle.ca/new_postermap_3rd_edition_high_frontier_nov_2015_poster-228522866334726293. It's a large-size map for the boardgame High frontier. And when I say Large, I mean 121 cm by 101 cm, printed on the Premium Canvas. That was bloody expensive, but it's very hard wearing, and damnned stunning. Of course with those options it's also about $200, but given size and materials not too shocking.

Say we cut it down to the a saner size, like 60.9 * 45 cm, the price is literally a quarter that (but then it is also a quarter the size). Go with a cheaper printing on the paper and you can halve the cost easily. I figure if you guys worked it out somewhat so you had the hexes the right size for a certian printing size, you could have POD hexmaps as you see fit. The only thing you'd want to do probably is see if Zazzle would let you restrict the poster sizes...

I just want to state the neither myself, Dollarton-Proxima Shipyards, or the deWulf Corporate State are responsible for anything that may come from this....

Xveers,

You are an eveeeel person. I recently found the High Frontier miniatures on Shapeways, now you show me a spiffy THIRD EDITION map on Zazzle. And, I'm supposed to get my High Frontier Kickstarter in the hopefully-not-to-distant-future....

A one-piece Starfire 4-panel map would be so nice....
