Highlight All

Makes all activities appear super thick so you can see where to zoom in on the map.

Activity Width

By default the activity lines are printed 0.2mm thick. A single line will not be visible more than about a meter away from the poster (obviously depending on the background map and your eyesight).
If you've run the same route multiple times different thinner lines often look good. With fewer activity on the same paths thicker lines may stand out more.

Zoom in and out

Use the + and - buttons to zoom in and out of your map. A mouse wheel or two fingers on a trackpad may also work depending on your device.
To move the map drag it left and right.


Click on the left or right sides of the orientation control to rotate your poster.
Click on the top to reset the map back with North at the top.


You can choose between landscape and portrait orientations so your activities fits just right in you poster and looks good on your wall.

Checkout Help

When will my card be charged and poster printed?

Posters are usually printed and shipped on the same day as ordering - perhaps a little longer if the order is received at the weekend or late in the day. Your card will be charged before the poster is printed. Any major delays we will get in contact with you.

How is my poster Shipped?

Your poster will be shipped in a rugged cardboard tube, which should protect it from the rigours of international travel

When will I receive my poster?

Shipping is by DHL Express shipping from our print centre in Finland and will usually arrive in a week: 3-4 working days in Europe and 4-6 around the world
Depending on how you get your post it's unlikely the poster tube will fit through your letter box, so you may receive a card to rearrange delivery.

What if I don't receive my poster?

Please wait until 10 working days after order then Email us, so we can ship another poster to you

My poster has arrived damaged?

Please Email us, so we can investigate and sort out a replacement.
If you can, please send a photo of the damage or atleast a description.

Will I be charged Import Duty or Tax?

Possibly, it depends.
  • If you're in the European Union has already charged VAT and there will be no further charges.
  • Outside the EU, most countries don't charge import duty on posters (see your local custom department or here for advice), but you may have to pay sales tax or value added tax if that's usual in your country/state. If charged, and often for small items you will not be, you'll probably need to pay this to the local postal service before receiving.
