Williams & Heintz Map Corporation Announces Their Kickstarter Project: Lithographic Print of the USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map

Capitol Heights, MD, July 26, 2013:  Williams & Heintz Map Corporation, a specialist in map printing, production, and folding is pleased to announce their Kickstarter Project: THE LITHOGRAPHIC PRINT OF THE NEW USDA PLANT HARDINESS ZONE MAP.


Backers of the project willreceive the a big, 40 x 60 inch print of the beautiful, new USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map, printed with genuine offset lithography.

The Plant Hardiness Zone Map is amap with designations that represent the average extreme minimum temperatures in your area. The lowest temperature during the winter is a crucial factor to the survival of plants. This is valuable knowledge, with it you can tell if a
plant will be able to survive the winter where you live. Posters of the earlier 1990 map were sold by the Government Printing Office, which does not plan to print and sell posters of the new map, even though it shows significant changes from the last one.


Kickstarter is a new way to fund creative projects. Each project is independently created. Together, creators and backers make projects happen. The project creator sets a funding goal and deadline. If people like a project, they can pledge money to make it happen.
Funding on Kickstarter is all-or-nothing, projects must reach their funding goals to receive any money. 


The deadline for the project is August 14, 2013.

Williams & Heintz Map Corporation has been printing maps for entrepreneurs, government agencies, and map publishers since 1921. They combine the highest quality pre-press, printing, folding with industry leading knowledge and customer service.


“We think it’s a beautiful map, and can’t be fully appreciated on a screen. It deserves to be seen at full size: A big, 40” x 60 inch print of the beautiful, new  USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map, printed by genuine offset lithography!,” said Holly Heintz Budd, President and CEO of Williams & Heintz Map Corporation.

Well, it is a beautiful map but if you see the old map, it has county boundaries which is missing in this version. I think county boundaries would do good in such maps for easier location of areas of interest.


Also the older map is a choropleth, whereas relief added in this map hinders in delineating boundaries of different zones. Any specific reason to change the map type.....
