With OS Maps, registered users have the option to print paper versions of maps from OS Maps on web.
Before printing, make sure you are logged into your OS account.
Registered (free) users can print standard maps (including routes) in A4, portrait or landscape.
Premium users can print standard or Premium Topo maps (including routes) in A4 and A3 portrait or landscape.
To print, first ensure your chosen area is visible on the screen, then select ‘Print' icon (shown in the top right corner of the screen).
The map area that falls within the highlighted box will be printed, to move this area click and drag the map.
A print panel will appear on the left-hand side of the screen, here you can select and change your printing preferences. Zooming in, changing the paper size and/or page orientation will change the area covered by the print.
Once you are happy with your print selection select the pink “Generate PDF” button found at the bottom of the left panel.
This will generate a PDF file that you can review before printing to check it is correct. If you're happy with the PDF preview, then follow your standard printing procedure within the PDF document to print your map.
To print exactly to scale, it is important to double check your printer settings, especially ensuring that 'Actual size' is selected under the relevant page sizing.
You also have the option to save the PDF file, if you want to print it at a later date.
