Hi everyone, I am new to this site, I was looking around at all the great pieces of art that are in here and I was wondering what the proper way to obtain a copy of these map. The way I am meaning is having it printed on a fine quality paper and hung on the wall. What is the best way to go about this and do I need to ask the permission of the maker first?

I would suggest checking with the map creator if their post or sig does not specify the licensing.

I will add a "thanks for asking" as it shows your respect for the artist.

RobA is right. You will need to make 5 posts on the website here and then you can send Private Messages (PM) to other members. Also, if you click on the artist's name you can view their profile and they may have links to either email addresses or websites that they use.

Also, welcome to the site, you just found a very cool place if you ask me :)

Enjoy

Thank you very much, you have mostly answered my question. I was planning on asking the Maker if I could use the map. But I am also unsure of how I would have this image turned into a good quality map.

I also think is a pretty wicked site, I am feeling a little intimadated by the map being produced, but I just think this is such a cool thing to know.

A local print shop or office supply store should be able to do this though large format colour printing is fairly expensive. Also, you'll need a sufficiently high resolution image which the artist may not have provided, or even created in the first place.

Thank you I will have to check that out once if I get permission.
