The color price is in line with what I found in 2004 when I was having 25(?)
sets printed up for those that got back to me (about $125/ 8.5x11 set).
Getting samples and having production proofs is critical. It's not a typical
print job. I didn't need one giant file for AlphaGraphics. They took
The quality of the output varied from unusable to what I ended up using, yet
the price was the same with the printers. The difference in readability was
amazing. I used a detailed Colorado page for the printer to provide a
sample: lots of close topo lines, lots of small lake names, etc.

I'm working with a local print shop to find a way to cost effective
way to print out Jonathan's maps instead of spending hours of my time
in front of my inkjet printer and probably $80-$100 on ink cartridges.
I'm wondering if there are any future CDT hikers who would also be
interested in purchasing a set of maps printed this way? I would
simply pass thru the costs + shipping. If there seems to be interest
in this, I'll post again with some firm numbers and details and then
place a single order with the print shop.
If I can figure out how to combine all the individual maps into a
single print file (which shouldn't be too difficult), I have some
preliminary quotes of:
Black&White 8.5x11 $12.50
Black&White 11x17 $25.00
Color 8.5x11 $122.50
Color 11x17 $147.50
