Customised planispheres


Personalised planispheres

Rob Walrecht Productions not only has the most extensive planisphere programme in the world (in fourteen - soon fifteen - languages and English planispheres for ten different latitude zones, together covering the entire populated world). We are also specialised in customised planispheres: containing your name, logo and information, and in the size, colours and shape you prefer.

Advantage of numbers

Due to the high starting costs for the printing companies involved the minimum number we can offer is 500. Or 2 x 250, for both parts of the planispheres are printed in pairs. Sometimes it is possible to combine two different orders for 250, so it is good to ask us about opportunities. Please scroll down for examples of customised planispheres.

Special offer coming up!

21 April 2018: Several new customers in the UK, USA and The Netherlands are considering ordering customised planispheres, with numbers of 1000 or otherwise 500. They would probably be 25 cm round, and in the standard colours (like the Finnish MFKA Planisphere below).
We hope to know more soon, but usually, when a customer orders, things go fast and they are in a hurry... Therefore I would advise, when you're interested, to contact us as soon as possible and start working on a design, without any obligation.

Planispheres in 16 languages now!

Our new Polish and Portuguese planispheres, which we designed and produced for Astroshop.de/Omegon, are the 15th and 16th language versions of our planispheres. It clearly shows our unique ability to make any (customised) planisphere you as customer might need!
We already have standard planispheres (our own publications) in English, Dutch, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Turkish and Frisian (the second language of the Netherlands!). We also made customised planispheres (other language versions usually can only be provided as customised planispheres) in Norwegian, Swedish, Finnish, Danish, Inuit (native people of Greenland) and Romanian (that last one also for Omegon).

Mind you, we can't provide the texts in other languages than English and Dutch, so you would need to deliver that yourself.  For your convenience we offer master files in English:
If you have questions about this, please let us know.


Why should you have your own customised planisphere?


Ideal premium

Such a customised planisphere is ideal as a promo for your customers or prospects, or a gift during special actions. Everybody like the planisphere, as it is simple 'instant' astronomy: just set it for the correct date and time and the planisphere shows you what you can see outside!
And as most people have no idea that such a simple 'guide to the stars' exists, it will be highly appreciated by anyone who receives one. So it will not end up in the trash, but on the bookshelf. And your customers and prospects will enthusiastically show their planisphere to colleagues, family, friends and others.

Everything is possible!

Since 1993 we have produced tens of thousands of customised planispheres for customers in Europe and North America. Among these customers are many planetariums and museums, but also an accountants company, a farmaceutical company and a National Park in Québec. You'll understand that our expertise in this field is second to none!

Our motto is: Everything is possible! The only thing we will not change is the sky...

New: Full Colour Planispheres

The latest development is the printing of the star chart and back side of planispheres in full colour. This used to be too expensive but now it is hardly more expensive than printing in two colours like we used to do for many years. Use of more colours offers tremendous advantages like making the names of stars, constellations and objects better readable when using a red flashlight to look at the stars. But it is now also possible to provide colour codes to certain or all objects, providing an even prettier back side etc.
Below you see the first two planispheres that were printed in full colour: at left the Planisfeer the Netherlands (PLN-NL, 11th edition) and at right the latest edition of the Planisphère of the Parc national du Mont-Mégantic, in Québec, Canada.
