Yep. That's what I'd have probably done.

found the resulting product totally useless ( a topo map)once bitten twice shy

They probably used a color laser printer and for some reason some of those do a really crappy job on topo maps. I know because I had some printed at a "Quick Print" type place and they really did suck.

But they do great with plain text and the laser print is a lot more water resistant too, so for this job that would have been a good choice.
