Martin Mounted World and US Maps We call this the Martin Mount because it was invented by Randy Martin, a member of  The Map Shop family for over 15 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 a week 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. Here are some maps we have pre-configured with a Martin Mount...

Martin Mount close-up

This is a close-up of one of out Martin Mounts. We laminate a plastic finish to the map as we're gluing it to the foam-core backing. Then we sandwich the foam-core between two walnut-grained strips.

Shipping a mounted or  framed map to you works best when the largest dimension on the map is 57 inches or less. All the maps on this page can easily be shipped by Fedex Ground. They are well below the 57 inch limit. Sizes above the limit require truck shipment. These can run into hundreds of dollars.
