Our print shop is on Etsy and we ship orders globally. Our prints have sold in 30 countries, including Canada, the US, Germany, New Zealand, France, Belgium, Australia, Italy, Latvia, Mexico, Morocco, Romania, Norway, Serbia, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, the Netherlands, and the UK. We work with Northend (a full service print house here in the UK) to produce the highest quality prints. They are also available as high resolution digital downloads on our Etsy store.

They’re printed on 200gsm silk paper, for a beautiful finish. We want to give back to the geo and open source community, so we have donated 10% our profits from print sales to the QGIS project as well as making a donation to @ephtracy, who created Aerialod (the software used to create our population density prints).

Take a look below for a little behind-the-scenes view of how our prints are produced. We were at Northend’s print shop to preview the final run of the colour version of our global population density print, and it really does look stunning in real life.
