Frequently Asked Questions

  • What does 'remastered and enhanced' mean?
    Sea Heritage takes an image in digital format and removes as many blemishes as possible in an effort to restore the image to as pristine a state as possible. Some of our charts are printed with an off-white layer added to the image, to give them an antique quality. Are your charts colored? Our United States nautical charts and lighthouse drawings are black and white (with the charts featuring a wide range of grays) and reproduced with in a off-white tone (unless it is featured on the site in black and white) to give the piece an antique appearance. Our Caribbean and aerial views are restored as much as is technologically possible to their original color.
  • What are your charts?
    Sea Heritage offers over one thousand historic nautical charts and other images from throughout the United States, mostly from the 19th century. Sea Heritage also offers charts and maps from various regions throughout the world, such as the Caribbean, South America, Europe, and Antarctica.
  • What kinds of materials do you use?
    All of our materials are museum-quality and acid-free. The paper we use is heavy bond, thicker and heavier than paper you would use in a standard, desktop printer or typewriter.
  • Is rush service available?
    We ship via UPS, and can provide any rush service they provide for both framed and unframed charts, such as overnight, Saturday, and second- or third day delivery (for an additional cost, determined on a case-by-case basis). Please note: we do not ship outside the U.S. and Canada.
  • Do you buy or appraise charts?
    No. Sea Heritage sells remastered and enhanced replicas of charts, maps and drawings only.
  • What is your refund/exchange policy?
    If you are dissatisfied with your selection for any reason, you may return your chart for a full refund, exchange for a chart of equal value or put your credit toward a chart of greater value. (Please note there is a re-stocking charge of 20% of the total cost of your order on returns totaling more than $200.00)
