This question already has an answer here:

I am creating art prints using spatial data.

I use ESRI software every day for my regular job, therefore I am proficient in GIS. However, I can't afford ESRI software for my art projects at home.

Currently I am using QGIS. What are some recommended products for producing print-quality maps?

    You should give a try to Mapnik with TileMill or Mapbox Studio – Below the Radar Dec 19 '14 at 20:11

    Just FYI, as long as you are not using it for commercial purposes, you can get ArcGIS Desktop for $100/year: esri.com/software/arcgis/arcgis-for-home – blah238 Dec 19 '14 at 20:26

    QGIS allows you to style geographic data and export print-quality graphics (PDF, PNG, etc) at your desired resolution/size using print composer. If you need to do anything else I'd suggest using Inkscape. This workflow mimics what cartographers do using ArcMap and Adobe Illustrator. – DPSSpatial Dec 19 '14 at 21:59

    @martinf I have edited the question to hopefully be less subjective, and requested it be reopened and made community wiki. – blah238 Dec 23 '14 at 20:58
