Free Printed City Maps

A few weeks ago I was toying with ideas for large format printed maps and decided that I wanted to do a test print run. I found a large, highly-detailed city map (it's a map of Galway from 1651 so totally in the public domain) and sent it off to the printers.  I removed the title from the map to allow it to be renamed as required for gaming purposes.

Today I got the test prints back. I only ordered 25 but they sent me a few extras. The prints are B2-sized which is 707mmx500mm (28"x19.5") and have been litho-printed on to 115gsm affiche paper. the paper has a nice smooth matt finish that is easy to write and draw on. The images below are photos of the finished prints.

If you'd like a free copy of the map there are 2 ways to get one:

1) Place any order at and send me a note saying you'd like one and I'll include it free with your order. If you order a poster or map sheet that needs to be posted in a tube then I'll roll the map with it. If not, then I'll fold the map to the same size as the other items you order.

2) If you come to the Squarehex stand at Dragonmeet you can just ask for one, no purchase necessary.

Free maps are strictly one per person, and are only available while stocks last.
