It is not often that one can publish a map that has never been done before. The Trans Siberian is one of the great railway trips of all time, crossing vast areas of steppe land and tundra as it wends its way from Moscow to Vladivostok.

There are actually two routes for much of the western portion, and branch off lines to Mongolia and northern China in the east, as well as a very unusual route across the top of Lake Baikal called Amur, or BAM, line. The only effective way to show east-west trail networks this diverse is via an atlas and that is just what we have done.

The entire route, with an extra page for those starting in St. Petersburg is covered nicely, with inset pages showing St. Petersburg, Moscow, and the heritage cities of Sergiev Posad and Suzdal. Both branches of the Trans-Siberian are shown and most of the Baikal-Amur (BAM) line.

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.
