FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

I don't see (insert your favorite resort) listed. Can you make it?

Yes! Using our Custom Map listing you can choose any resort you'd like. Choose the medium that best suits your decor and type your request in the notes box on the checkout page. If you have any specific questions about a resort map email us at gnarwallsinfo@gmail.com.

Where do I put my resort choice on the Custom Map?

You'll find a notes box on the checkout page. Put any special requests in that box and we'll be sure to make them for you.

Can you make a larger size?

Yes! We can create maps up to 46x96 inches in one continuous image. Larger sizes are possible by dividing the map into sections and piecing back together on the wall. Email us at gnarwallsinfo@gmail.com to discuss your project.

How long does it take to make my order?

Lead times vary by product, but generally our production times run 7-10 business days. Custom orders can take longer if it's an obscure resort or request. We ship ground from Utah and California, shipping can take as long as 4 days depending on location. Expedited shipping is available if needed, email gnarwallsinfo@gmail.com for pricing.

What's the difference between the Canvas and Rustic Maple?

A lot!

Our gallery wrapped canvas prints are produced using giclée printing processes and tightly stretched onto a 1.5" solid wood frame. It has a classic look and feel, and plays well to the artistry of the map. All copy is easy to read and colors are vibrant.

Our rustic maple prints are produced on 1/2 inch untreated maple ply sheets that each have a character of their own. Because we don't print with white inks the grain on each blank has a unique pattern which shows through the translucent printing. The effect is spectacular! While a bit darker in general than our canvas prints, the copy is still very legible and the colors great.

Which is better? The canvas or the rustic maple?

Both are beautiful pieces and actually work well together when displayed in a grouping. One of the biggest differences between them is the sizing options. We are able to offer the rustic maple maps in a smaller 16 inch tall size not available in canvas. Conversely, we offer a larger 36 inch tall size in the canvas that is not available in our standard maple prints. However all prints are available in custom sizing up to 46x94 inches upon request, email us at gnarwallsinfo@gmail.com for more information about custom sizing.

Can you read the words on the map?

Yes! Readability is critical on a map so all artwork is set up to ensure maximum clarity. We won't ship a map if it's not readable.

Can I see the artwork on my custom map before ordering?

Sure! Just let us know that you'd like an email with a proof when you make your request in the notes box at checkout.

Can you make a map from the past?

Possibly. We have access to older maps as well. Contact us at gnarwallsinfo@gmail.com for more information.

Can you make me a print of some other artwork?

Sure! Shoot us an email and let's talk.

Are these made in America?

Yes! All of our production happens either in Utah or California. 

What is the meaning of life?

Way back in the mid 1980s the Dalai Lama made a visit to Santa Fe, New Mexico and during his visit had the opportunity to visit Sandia Peak Resort to see skiing for the first time. At the end of his visit he was asked by a young lady "What is the meaning of life" and this was his response:

“The meaning of life is happiness.” He raised his finger, leaning forward, focusing on her as if she were the only person in the world. “Hard question is not, ‘What is meaning of life?’ That is easy question to answer! No, hard question is what make happiness. Money? Big house? Accomplishment? Friends? Or …” He paused. “Compassion and good heart? This is question all human beings must try to answer: What make true happiness?” He gave this last question a peculiar emphasis and then fell silent, gazing at her with a smile.
