With vector tiles, Mapbox Studio Classic maps are print ready. The resolution independence of vector tiles now makes it possible to create a map with flexible resolution appropriate for high quality printing. Now your data doesn’t just scale, it renders across all media in sharp detail.

Download print ready images in Mapbox Studio Classic through the export pane, integrated into the style pane for quick styling of print areas. You choose between three different paradigms for selecting the export area based on use case: dimensions in pixels, dimensions in inches, and geographic area. Export png and jpeg images at 150, 300, and 600 ppi.

To create high resolution static images of your maps, we use abaculus to collect the vector tiles within the area you’ve selected to export, increase the dimensions of an individual tile from 256 x 256 pixels to 1024 x 1024 pixels or higher, and stitch them together seamlessly.
