Product description

The Rocky Mountain chain forms the boundary between the Canadian provinces of Alberta and British Columbia. There are only three passes through the mountain chain, which somewhat isolates BC from the rest of Canada (a mixed blessing). The Rockies are also the paramount travel attraction of Canada, nice though our many lakes, waterfalls, and cities happen to be.

The Rocky Mountain chain forms the boundary between the Canadian provinces of Alberta and British Columbia. There are only three passes through the mountain chain, which somewhat isolates BC from the rest of Canada (a mixed blessing). The Rockies are also the paramount travel attraction of Canada, nice though our many lakes, waterfalls, and cities happen to be.

This double-sided map covers the three national parks of Banff, Jasper, and Yoho, and several provincial parks on both sides of the border, which also forms the continental divide between rivers flowing to the Pacific or to the Atlantic, covering from Calgary to the northern portion of the Fraser Canyon on one side, and the more northerly stretch of the Rockies from Fort St. John to the Yukon. Good inset maps of Calgary, Banff, Jasper, and Lake Louise are included.

The focus of this map is its many recreational opportunities, with an emphasis on campgrounds, ski areas, historic sites, and secondary roads. The area of coverage is vast; the size of Western Europe, and straddles two time zones.

Gloss Laminate

Gloss laminate makes colours look more vibrant and stand out more, but is quite shiny (reflective). If you’re planning on using a marker of any sort, this is a better choice because it’s easier to clean. Your print will be fully encapsulated (so laminated on both sides) in durable 80 micron laminate and will last you a lot longer than plain paper.

Matte Laminate

Matte laminate has a smooth, non-reflective, very classy looking surface. I wouldn’t say it dulls colours, but it doesn’t make them ‘pop’ (I hate that I just used that word) in the way that gloss does. Matte can be drawn on with pencil (and erased), but is harder to clean if you use markers. Your print will be fully encapsulated (so laminated on both sides) in durable 80 micron laminate and will last you a lot longer than plain paper.

Canvas

Everything looks better on canvas! Something about the texture really makes prints look wonderful. It is quite expensive though. We use a very high quality 340gsm artistic matte canvas. Your canvas print will come rolled with a roughly 50mm white border to allow you to have it stretched or mounted however you wish.
