The Dutch Postal Code Map of the Netherlands is truly a unique map. Every municipality is on this map, with every first two digits of the Dutch postal code system (postcode) represented in it. At the bottom you'll find a bit of history about the unique Dutch postal code, as well as how it works.
The Dutch postal code system is unique in the world. It's the only one where you only need the postcode along with a house number to find any address in the Netherlands. The alphanumerical code with its six digits has been designed to be efficient. And it is.
Building the map using merely hexagons and municipalities distorts and warps the shape of the country. It includes a history and explanation of how the Dutch system works. As well as a color-coded index of all postcodes per province.
The map is in Dutch. Printed on premium, 200 grams paper. It's B2-sized (50x70 centimeters) and - just as other maps - is shipped rolled up.
Maps are designed in a country with the metric system. Most posters are designed for the B-standard. You will find the various B-sizes and dimensions in centimeters and inches below.
|B-size||Width x height (cm)||Width x height (inch)|
|B2||50 x 70||19.7 x 27.6|
|B1||70 x 100||27.6 x 39.4|
|B0||100 x 141||39.4 x 55.5|
Post cards, rare maps, or smaller prints may be produced using the A-standard.
|A-size||Width x height (cm)||Width x height (inch)|
|A6||10,5 x 14,8||4.1 x 5.8|

|A3||29,7 x 42||11.7 x 16.5|
|A2||42 x 59,4||16.5 x 23.4|

There are 2 ways your items may be shipped: Directly from stock or via made to order.
Orders are usually dispatched within 5 working days. As a one-man-show (along with designing maps, making YouTube videos and regular life), it is impossible for me to dedicate that much time. Nonetheless; your orders are important and also vital to me. I will take as much care as possible handling, packing and providing information and service to you, as possible.
Made To Order:
When ordering something made to order, your item will be made specifically for you. This may take even longer than usual, but we strive to get you your print a.s.a.p.
- Shipping on orders above €70 is free. This includes worldwide shipping.
- You will also receive email updates on your shipment along with track & trace information where available.
- You will get free stickers with your order as long as stocks last. Can't guarantee this (with the exception of made to order orders).
Shipping Times and Customs
Within the Netherlands your order will probably arrive within one or two working days of you receiving the Track & Trace code. However outside of the Netherlands the travel times will be longer the further away the package has to travel (obviously). Within Europe probably within 2 days to a workweek.
Outside of the EU or Shengen zone you'll also have to deal with customs regulations and possibly tax duties - please be aware of this and take the necessary precautions. Inform with your country's customs service for precise information – I cannot help you with that. Ordering something from abroad always comes with an increased risk attached, however I will always do my best to help out.
Shipping outside the EU or Shengen
When possible, if you order and ship to a destination outside the EU or Shengen zone, you may be required by your national customs agency to pay import duties. Please inform yourself of the possible costs before ordering, all international orders are shipped with the appropriate documentation. Outside of that I cannot help you with this. You may need to submit a customs declaration.
Pick-up (Netherlands only)
For Dutch customers it's possible to also select a "Servicepunt levering". After payment has been received you will be able to select a nearby service point where your order will be sent to for pick-up.
If, for some reason, it wasn't possible to select your service point, please get in touch and we'll make sure it gets sent to the right place.
