40"x36" printed on both sides on 4 colors press. Folded into 9" x 4"
2000 maps = $3400 ( $1.70 per map)
5000 maps = $4200 ( $0.84 per map)
10000 maps = $5800 ( $0.58 per map)
Retail price of the map = $9.95
I'm driving down to pick it up so no shipping cost, just gas money.
If Pat's map was printed at 300,000 copies on 32" x 20" paper, the cost would be around $0.30 per map which sells for $8 retail.

In these quantities, cost will not be terribly different for different paper stocks.
Personally, I prefer a hard-calendared uncoated offset stock for most maps.
I have to agree with Dennis. I prefer to stay away from the gloss stocks. Go for a nice uncoated offset stock. I tend to use what my printer refers to as a 70lb Map Litho offset stock. But I have to admit I have been known to use a satin stock. Which if I prefer over the gloss and semi-gloss because there is less glare.

I hope you'll give us Cartotalkers a chance to purchase your map. I live in Florida but am a native of upstate New York and I am always looking for maps of my home area. When are you planning to have it printed?

What printers have you worked with Tom?
We do quite of bit of printing with Pragati Offset (up to 28x40") and some with Eastwood Printing here in Denver. We use Eastwood for the larger format printing or more specialized papers/folds.
