          Artstorefronts FAQs

Q: What Is "Cartography"?

A: Cartography is the study and practice of making maps. We like maps because they are tangible representations of specific locations. Carland Cartography creates abstract drawings of street maps. We change the focus of a map from a tool to a story. We aren’t just selling art prints- we are providing personalized biographies to each one of our customers. We are invoking nostalgia, recalling a sense of belonging and self-identity. The finished pieces of artwork can serve as reminders of the locations that make your life story special and different from anyone else.



Q: What Sizes Are Available?

A:  Almost everything is available in the following sizes: 8x10”, 11x14”, 16x20” and 24x30”. Some of our work is available larger- up to 58x73” but unfortunately, not everything can be enlarged bigger than 24x30” without losing image integrity.



Q:  Do you sell “original” work?

A: Most of our work is only sold as prints. It was created by combining separate hand-drawn sketches to create the intended result. So, there are no “originals” in the conventional sense. However, in 2019 we will begin offering a small selection of original work for sale. 



Q: Who actually owns artwork?

A:When purchasing artwork, you own the physical object. However, the artist owns the image. What does that mean? Read below.

Artist Rights- The artist owns all work they create. This includes the rights to the image of sold and commissioned work. The artist retains the rights to make an unlimited quantity of reproductions of ANY KIND of ALL the artwork they create.

Collector Rights- The collector has purchased an item and has the right to display the artwork in their home or business in any way they choose. However, the artwork may not be resold or reproduced without the artist’s written permission. The collector does not have the right to claim it as their work, or to publish it (in print or online) without giving credit to the artist.

Exception- The only exception would be if a collector wishes to purchase exclusive rights to a commission or custom order, which means the artwork will not be sold to someone else in any format. This is a cost IN ADDITION to the cost of the artwork, and starts at $5,000. If you are interested in purchasing rights to a commission or custom order, please disclose that before the commission agreement is signed. 



Q: How can I be included in special offers and promotions?

A: We sometimes offer special offers and promotions for our subscribers. In order to get access to these offers, please sign up to our EMail Newsletter so you can save money on your next order.



Q: I like this, but can I get it in a different color?

A: Each piece is drawn by hand using various artistic media. Because of our process, colors cannot be easily changed. If you want a particular piece in a particular color, we have to start the process from the beginning and it is considered custom order



Q: How long does each piece take to make?

A: Each piece takes approx.10 weeks to make. Its a slow process, but we think the results are worth the time invested.



Q: I live in a small apartment with NO wallspace! Do you sell other merchandise?

A: We are working on a new line of merchandise options for your home or office. Including clothing, phone cases, pillows, mugs, greeting cards, zippered pouches and more! These make great options for holiday baskets, wedding guest favors, graduation gifts and other special occasions. They also make GREAT housewarming gifts! Stay tuned.


Q: I’m a retailer. Do you have a wholesale option?

A: Yes! Please find us on Faire.


Q: I love your work but I don’t see my neighborhood. Can I have a custom order made?

A: Yes! We can do a personalized map of anywhere on the globe, just keep in mind some places have more “visual appeal” than others. Check out our custom order page for more information



Q: Are all your prints archival quality?

A: Yes, the items sold on this site are archival. They should last a long, long time.



Q: Can I pick up my purchase rather than having it shipped?

A: Unfortunately no customer pick-ups are available at this time. Please read our sshipping policy page for more information.



Q:  Do you have a storefront I can visit?

A: We are currently in transition, as we prepare for the next chapter in our story. Right now, we do not have a public storefront or studio. We hope to have something set up soon.



Q: What options are available for corporations/businesses?

A: Browse our current product lines for an option that suits your needs or have a map custom made for your space! We have our work in corporate board rooms, start-ups, real estate offices, non-profits and more. Let us help you find the perfect solution. 



Q: What happens if I order a print online but change my mind when it arrives?

A: All of our work is NON-REFUNDABLE. That means we don't give refunds for any reason.  Please read our sreturn policy page for more information.



Q: Where Else Can I Find You Online?

A: We have several options on our Etsy  page. If you are interested in a subscription service, please enroll in Turning Art  where you can rent some of our prints on a month-to-month basis. If you would like to make a small monthly contribution to help us grow, visit our  Patreon page.

Verified Archival Materials Used

The Art Storefronts Organization has verified that this Art Seller has published information about the archival materials used to create their products in an effort to provide transparency to buyers.

Description from Merchant:

Each one of our pieces is created by developing a series of hand-drawn layers, with its own intended purpose for the whole. Each layer is a sketch, painting or drawing that is made independently, using various artistic mediums in a way that makes it compliment the other layers. These layers are then digitally combined to make a single final piece. The final piece is then produced as a high-quality print on paper or canvas. To read more, go to:
