Just heard from Photo Metro...they will need to order in the plastic laminate in that size and should have it by the end of next week (May 4th). I should have mentioned too that their machine fits 42" width...exactly the same as the map. As they need some border for the laminate, I had to trim the map. I cut it to 41" so the half inch on each side will be plenty for them. I cut it right along the (and forgive my highly technical cartographic lingo here)...those numerical thing-a-mabobs on the outside that all start with "5". I suggest doing the same before bringing it in.

Thanks maramar. I took my copy into Ricci's Printing today to ask what it would cost to mount it on foam board. This would make carting it around in my car difficult, but I want to hang it on the wall. I'll probably have another laminated and rolled for taking to events. And I'm thinking of a 3rd cut into 8.5x11 and laminated. This way I can take just the parts I need on trip.

I had Craig's map Plak-It'd. That cost over $100 and it's heavy.

I had the map laminated, full size for $40 at Staples (next day), Donny has this with him for tracking our search areas planned/completed.

I need another map, asked Adventure Guide in Waterloo, who is going to check with the purchasing manager about ordering some.

Staples was my first choice too but the one here in North Bay could not do that size.

Curly, Photo Metro has the laminate so I will bring mine in today.

Just got my map back from Photo Metro. Some slight creasing on one side but overall, I'm happy with it.
