Putting compasses into paper maps

With all the capabilities now to print basic electronics,and the cheapness of compasses in some wristwatches,  it should be relatively straightforward to imprint a compass into a paper map, making it much easier to navigate. Many people take such functionality for granted on portable GPS systems, smart-phones and pads. It would be good to see some competition coming back from the paper products industry.
