Martin Mounts or What the Heck is a Martin
Martin Mount. We call this the Martin Mount because
it was invented by Randy Martin, a member of
The Map Shop family for
over 6 years! Randy
has skillfully combined the elegance of our wood-grained rails with the
practicality of foam core. Here is a picture of a map with this mount. This is a
close up of the way the rails are mounted on the map. From the front, it looks
almost as if the whole thing was framed but at price that is way below putting a
wood frame on a map this size. Foam core maps can take up to 8 business days to
prepare for shipment as we get close to the holidays. We can mount and / or
frame almost any map this way but configuring our web site to allow on-line
order entry for this option with the thousands of different map sizes is just
not possible. Don't let that stop you. Call us at 800-532-6675 between
8:30a ~ 6p Eastern US time. We will be glad to give you a quote over the phone.
Or contact us using the email address at the bottom of your screen. But if you see
that the map on your screen has an item# that ends in MM, that means it's a
Martin mount. You're good to go. That means we already have a pre-configuration
for doing a Martin Mount and the price reflects that. The sturdy wood
framed crate is included in the price of the map and Martin mount.

these maps internationally
Shipping a mounted or framed map to you works best when the largest
dimension on the map is 57 inches or less. Sizes above that require truck
shipment. These can run into hundreds of dollars.
