Bellingham Chart Reproductions
Bellingham Chart Printers stocks more than 4,000 paper charts and for years has supplied world cruisers with two-thirds-size regional folios, which make tidy and economical backups to the electronic versions. Now the company has moved from black-and-white to grayscale printing, which reveals more detail of the original NIMA and NOAA cartography (see the comparison below). As always, the two-thirds sizes are a uniform 24"x36", come with a reusable binder, and cost $4.95 apiece. Full-size chart reproductions cost $7.95.
