Sketches, etc. can take your campus to a higher level by providing your school with a practical and beautiful 3-D aerial perspective illustrative map. We illustrate a variety of campuses for multimedia marketing purposes. We prepare and create maps for digital needs, prints and any other marketing products. Our high resolution artwork can be enlarged for billboards or reduced for business cards. Besides creating way finders, we also manage the files for you. We can easily update your maps as you grow and prosper. Many consider us their off site campus artist. Watch the pride and excitement grow as you show people where to go!
What makes Sketches, etc. maps unique and the best investment?
We give you a product that is far more versatile than any other way-finder on the market. As the old saying goes "It's harder to go up than down." This is so true with resolution. Most internet maps are created for just that - the sole purpose of a website. In order to view these maps on the internet quickly, the resolution of the map only needs to be 72 dpi (dots per inch). The minimum dpi for printing is 300 dpi, but we create our maps at 450-600 dpi. This higher resolution gives you the flexibility to print billboard size, reduce it to a business card or make it interactive on the internet without losing the quality of the illustration. We work hard to give you a great pride piece for your campus...on or off the internet. You can use it anywhere and everywhere you want! Let us help you show off your campus!
Feel free to call or email us with any questions. We love what we do and would love to talk to you!
