The last post came out as some kind of bulletin so ill try again.
I was trying to get a paper chart of the Keys to use on a dinette table. I wanted to download one but I do not have a printer big enough to print charts. I called Kinkos and they said they would not print it if it was copyrighted. Looking for options. I would buy one from NOAA however they say water resistant or proof last time I checked and im afraid that would affect how i can glue/apply to the table top. That's why I wanted one printed from shop on cheap regular paper. Any ideas?

NOAA charts are not under copyright protection.

There are still marine stores that will print charts for you. Landfall navigation in Stamford, CT does this. I am sure they would mail it to you if you can't find a place close to home.

As Cranki said. I used to order from oceangrafix.com.

Now, I print the free chart booklet at home and put the pages into a binder. On the boat I end up folding the full-size chart anyway so this is an acceptable alternative for me.

BookletChart?

You can get print-on-demand charts from any of these vendors: Nautical Charts & Pubs .

As Donna said, NOAA charts are freely distributed.

Check back with Kinkos. They will print copywritten material. They have printed stuff I have written that I hold the copyright for. There was copyright information on the material and no one every asked if I was the copyright holder.
