Exploring the Wildwoods

The Wildwoods region is rich in history and adventure. While the inhabitants of other regions often look on its inhabitants as backwards hicks with quaint ideas about farming and nobility, the people of the Wildwoods live in a world steeped in myth, folklore, and history.

The Wildwoods is the home of my current online Dungeon Squad game, and the subject of a poster map that I'm making right now. This is a little preview. I'm looking for a printer right now. Does anyone out there have any experience sending posters in the mail? I'm concerned that the posters could get mashed in the mail, which would be very sad.

I've been waiting on some outdoor stuff (so I can steal it). Thanks, man. You do great work.

I've never used them personally yet, but I've heard nothing but good things about Gamer Print Shop at places like EN World and The Cartographers Guild.

Perhaps you can speak with the owner and distribute your maps through them? They work with third party publishers:

That poster's going to look awesome :)

When I've ordered posters in the past, they've come in poster tubes -- long cardboard cylinders, with the poster rolled up inside. The posters might end up curled, but they definitely don't get mashed. Just ask your printer to mail them in a poster tube (if they don't automatically), and you should be fine.

Well, I have a lot of experience in shipping, and while a nice sturdy poster tube works well, there is no guarantee that they will arrive at their destination undamaged. Those strudy tubes are expensive, and if a less sturdy tube is used then expect damage. Almost better to ship them folded and flat; than rolled up in my opinion.
