There are many maps available of Gettysburg and the Battle of Gettysburg.  The seven shown below were were produced before and after the battle up to and including its 50th anniversary in 1913.  The maps are available at the Library of Congress, and from sites such as Ancestry.com.

Ancestry.com also offers subscribers the opportunity to get a professionally printed copy of the map, printed on archival quality paper and suitable for framing. The copies are available in two sizes:  17 inches by 11 inches; and 24 inches by 18 inches.  By using a design tool, MyCanvas, there is also the ability to create a custom copy of the print of the map (in the same choices of size) with personal information added.
