Waterproof Maps

Show Profile  PeterHaszard Posted: 8 December 2016, 5:41 AM  
Some of the comments regarding waterproof maps on this forum are not correct.
My company TuffPlans® prints LINZ Topo Maps & Maritime Charts as well as printing custom maps from customers PDF's. Our main business is printing plans for the Building Industry on Tyvek® which we have been doing for three years.
Tyvek® does NOT absorb Blood or Mud, it simply wipes off without any effect on the media. We print using a specialist OCE printer which 'embeds' the image on the Tyvek®, the resultant image cannot be removed without significant effort! We have had samples soaking in both Petrol & Diesel for the past six months, there is no degradation to the image!
I am happy to talk with anyone and provide samples as necessary.

The ONZ Mapping Committee Convenor Nick Hann has posted on the Mapping Thread as follows:

"...the information contained here and in the Printing thread would be transferred to a new site where the information could be sorted more easily to allow better access. This has now been completed and is available to view and edit at:

"There are 23 separate headings, such as “Printing” or “Digital Elevation Models”, under which the relevant posts from Maptalk have been categorised. Some headings have subtopics, for when there were too many posts for a single page. This should make it easier to find information on issues that mappers face, so now, if you are struggling or unsure about something, check the Wiki as it may have been discussed already.

"While mappers are free to continue to use Maptalk, the committee urges mappers to register for this Orienteering Wiki (it's not just restricted to Mapping) and to contribute here for the good of the sport. Registration is only required for contributing; anyone may view. There are instructions on the page for how to contribute. Thank you for your contributions!"

Peter sent me a sample and I will say the printing quality is very good and the paper durable. The price was also very competitive.

In my opinion it is nicer than the paper some clubs use. If you are looking for a new printer then it is worth at least checking out.
