About World Impressions
Source Map, Inc. publishes and distributes the World Impressions brand of illustrated map products.
Source Map publishing company is situated in Tracyton, Washington, a
little Puget Sound community of the Pacific Northwest. Since 1985, the lofty
goal of its founders have been to produce the most informative,
attractive and interesting, historical, hand-illustrated maps, guides, puzzles and
derivative gift products for the Gift/Toy, Tourism, Sports, Education and Fundraising markets.
Unlike other aesthetic, eclectic publishers,
World Impressions products do not rely on simplistic graphics
to build a map. To earn the World Impressions ArtMap title,
map subject matter must first meet our stringent proprietary acceptance
Next, the subject matter
must undergo years of detailed historical research including consultation with
recognized authorities. Once the large body of textual and graphical research
is finalized, it is then artistically rendered, composed and integrated onto a base map of
multi-layered geography mapping.
This entire process can take
up to five or more YEARS!
World Impressions ArtMap map products reveal pride in publishing
for only original, in-house concepts and themes. To imitate, copy or
plagiarize the work of another map company, is not our policy.
