Welcome to OLD MAPS AND VINTAGE PRINTS, a specialty print shop with a focus on making fine print reproductions of antique maps, printed on 100% cotton acid-free fine art papers with archival pigment inks. We're dedicated to the art of printmaking and every item we print is made only of the highest quality materials.
This shop is a happy combination of three of our passions: maps, history, and prints on paper. We love old maps because they are truly windows onto history, showing paths of exploration, scientific discovery, developing and changing societies, and more. They also connect us to the places that are most important to us: our towns, our ancestry, and our common heritage. Plus, many of them are beautiful works of art in their own right.
We started the business in 2012 as a way to explore history through antique maps, and with a desire to perfect the art of fine prints on paper. Over the years we've had the privilege to make prints for numerous museums, universities, and television and movie productions.
All of the images we print have been lovingly restored to their original shine, and we make all of the prints on a large-format digital fine art printer using archival pigment inks and 100% cotton matte fine art papers. We're always on the lookout for beautiful and interesting old maps, and we regularly add new items to the collection. also happy to customize any of the prints in any way, just drop us a line to describe what you'd like.
Since 2012 we've also made a subset of our collection available for purchase in our Etsy Store
. Etsy is a marketplace for unique handmade and custom products and has a great community of buyers and sellers.We are a shop based in Portugal.

The print was exactly how it was described and the perfect Christmas present. Even though it was being shipped from overseas it arrived in a timely manner.
Excellent paper quality with fantastic detail.
Great quality of both print and paper, I am very satisfied! It came packed carefully inserted in a hard tube and all my three posters were completely undamaged and in mint condition. Big plus also for the large amount of different posters available and the chance of even finding posters, after contacting the seller, that weren't originally in the shop.
This is a beautiful map. The color and design is perfect. Hung it up right away. I do recommend this site!
