We can do any size board!
1. To figure out the piece sizes of the board, plug in the dimensions for the board below.
2. You will then see the different size options for the board.
3. Go above and select the proper size paper (matching the size below you want) and how many pieces it is.
4. Then put in the dimensions of the board so we know where to trim it, so it’s exactly the right size.

EXAMPLE
20″ by 20″ board.
Put in 20 and 20 into the page calculator and click Calculate. You will see 2 options:

  • 6.6667″ by 10″ sheets (8.5″ x 11″) – 6 pgs- 6 piece folding board.
  • 10″ by 10″ sheets (11″ x 17″) – 4 pgs- 4 piece folding board.

The important numbers are the number of pieces and the size of the sheet (Size in Parentheses).
If you wanted the 4 piece folding board, you would put “4 piece folding board” into the top dropdown box and (11″ x 17″) in the second drop down box to get the price.

BOARD CONSTRUCTION
We use 1.5mm White Chipboard to make the boards. The backs are not covered with anything and you can see the tape on the backs of the boards (which is used to make them fold.

UPLOADING
Use the upload board option (right below the dropdown boxes above) to upload the full map image. If you upload a jpg/png, make sure to specify the size of the board in the dimensions option. If your board has a white border, we need to know where to cut, so add a thin line on the very outer border. We’ll trim that off, and the border will be white. (Otherwise we’ll trim the edge to the non-white section)
Upload the full board, with no bleed or extra white edges or cut lines.
We recommend not adding text or anything to the parts of the board that fold, or else they may be cut off.

QUALITY
Note that these custom sized boards are all made by hand, so they may be slightly different in size compared to the size you requested. Our standard 2mm tolerance rule applies to the boards, so make sure text stays 2mm away from the folds and the edges of the board. With larger boards, there may be slight warping due to the thickness of the chipboard. There may also be small scratches/bumps/wrinkles in small parts of the board.

FORMATTING
-Upload a pdf/png/jpg image.
-If you upload a pdf, make sure you merge all the layers first (save as a single layer image before saving). Otherwise there may be missing artifacts/layers in the wrong spot after the printer processes the files.
-If you get a folding board, make sure text stays away from the folds, or it may get cut off.
