Ordering a Print

Order from our Online Bookshop

Some of the more popular prints are available from our Online Bookshop in standard sizes.  Currently this includes the William Smith County maps.  Ordering from the bookshop is cheaper and quicker than using our bespoke printing service.

Bespoke Printing

If the print you want is not available from our online bookshop or you want a print at a different size, you can order a bespoke print from the Map Librarian.

All the maps in our picture library are available and can be printed at any size up to the limits of the resolution of the scan.  See below for more information.

Each print requested using this service has to be ordered from our printer and can take up to two weeks to be received by us here at the Geological Society.  It is not currently possible to get maps printed at short notice using this service.

To order a bespoke print, please email the Map Librarian, Paul Johnson at, specifying:

  • Which map(s) you would like printed.

  • A delivery address

  • If you are a member of the Geological Society, please give your membership number

  • If you wish to have the print sized to your requirements, please specify the length of one of the dimensions, either height or width.


All prices are inclusive of postage and VAT (where applicable).    Members of the Geological Society includes Fellows, Candidate Fellows and Friends of the Society. 

Prints in the Online Bookshop are individually priced.

Please note that all maps have a large whitespace border of between 1cm and 5cm around the edges.

Also note that for posting prints, the maximum length of the shortest side must be less than 85cm.
