YMCA Awards Bathymetric Map with Living Hinge Border


#1

A while back I made a prototype for some YMCA awards that I was given the honor of making for this year’s annual dinner, and finished 2 tonight with the 3rd gluing up right now. I took inspiration from @coloradocaver and his recent bathymetric map and added a border to my maps. Since they are already cut with a curved border, I had to make mine with a living hinge. The awards need a bit of clean up where some clue expanded, but overall, I think that they will love the results. I made a stand for each, as well as put rubber feet on the back in case they could rather have it sit flat. Finally, I added a keyhole so they could hang it if they choose to.
