Do you make tshirts?
We do offer tshirts for almost all cities and the heart and brain, but we have a limited inventory. Tshirts are $20. Please visit orkposters.com/tshirts to see them, but please contact us at hello@orkposters.com before you purchase one so we can check our inventory.

Do you offer other sizes or colors of posters other than what is on the website?
Unfortunately we do not offer custom size or color posters. But we do offer custom size and color digital prints on canvas. If you would like more information, please visit orkposters.com/canvas.html.

How do you determine your neighborhood boundaries?
We limit each design to the city limits. We break each city down into neighborhoods using street and historical maps, advisement from local "experts", usually long-time residents or urban planners, city government-defined neighborhoods, and other resources. When a neighborhood's boundaries or name is debatable, we make our best effort to use the boundaries/names that are historically used by a city's residents, rather than the government, realtor's or other "outside" party's definitions.

Will you make a [insert city name here] poster in the future?
We haven't decided just how many or which cities we'll do in the future. We'll certainly take requests (we are a democracy after all) but if it is not already posted on the website, we aren't promising anything.

I saw a design that looked similar to Ork's but I don't see it on your website. Was it an Ork Poster?
If you don't see it on our website, it was NOT a poster designed by Ork. Unfortunately, other versions "inspired by Ork" are out there. Rest assured, we will be adding many more cities in the future (hopefully yours) but we want to take our time, do them right and make sure we put some "Ork magic" in them. And of course, we'd encourage you to wait for the real thing rather than support a not-so-imaginative "artist".

Email us with your requests for new cities! We'll take note and contact you if/when your city is added.

What is the difference between screen prints and posters?
A screen print is made using a stencil process in which the print's image is superimposed on a very fine mesh screen. Ink is then squeegeed through the screen onto the paper.

The result is a less exact print than the professionally printed posters, but the non-professional look of screen prints has become a significant cultural aesthetic. The ink on the prints is thick enough to see a slight bit of depth (and can be felt), whereas on the professionally printed posters, the ink soaks into the paper and is flat.

Any new projects on the horizon?
A whole heck of a lot! Join the mailing list to be notified when we announce new products/ideas.


Do you sell wholesale?
Ork seeks retailers that support quality, affordable art and craft that is unique and has limited availability and is of a similar aesthetic to Ork. We are currently not accepting new retailers but please contact us so we can note your interest. Ork Posters are sold online exclusively at orkposters.com. Wholesale purchases are for resale at physical store locations only. Please contact jenny [at] orkposters [dot] com

Do you license your maps/designs for other uses?
Ork does not license its map designs for use elsewhere. If it were to be used for promotion or other purposes, we feel it distracts from the design's purpose as wall art. Despite that, we realize there are a lot of good intentions for which a neighborhood map graphic is well-suited. Therefore, we may be able to offer you a more generic looking neighborhood map for your use. And we also are available for freelance design work and can work with you to come up with an equally creative graphic for your project! Please contact jenny [at] orkposters [dot] com.


Do you have press images?
Yes, please contact jenny [at] orkposters [dot] com
