We design and assemble all of our maps in the Reno/Tahoe area, and all laser etching is done by lasers that we design and build in house. These maps are etched into Baltic birch wood and hand framed with a wire wrap along the back, allowing you to hang it as soon as it arrives! We hope you love it!
