Small individual custom map
Choose a place in the UK that is important to you and I will laser-engrave it into a piece of wall art.
It could be where you completed a hiking challenge, where you got married, a holiday destination you never want to forget, or where you bought your first home. Provided it's in the UK I can recreate it for you on oak veneered plywood and add a special personalised message to the back.
If you would like a custom piece please see the info below. If, however, the designs you would like already exist in my coaster collection then you can simply purchase from the drop-down menu and let me know your choice upon checkout.
As custom maps will be digitally traced before they can be laser-cut there is an additional fee for the work involved. Custom designs are priced at £70 for a map containing no water features, and £75 for a map with water features. Please choose the one you’d like from the drop down menu, or alternatively contact me if you’re unsure whether there will be any water featured in your map art. You can send me a message at firstname.lastname@example.org and include the address or the coordinates (find them here) of the location you would like creating.
Map wall art comes with an icon (such as a star or heart) placed in a location of your choice on the front, and a message on the back included in the price.
Size and scale:
Small maps are 11cm x 11cm in size and 3.4cm in depth and created to a scale of 1:25000.
Each design starts on the computer where I digitally recreate all the 50m contours, popular summits, any lakes, reservoirs or tarns, roads and place names. They are then laser etched and cut from oak veneered plywood, sealed with Danish oil and inset with blue tinted acrylic in place of water. Brass screws and spacers attach the map to a back piece of white acrylic, to allow the blue tinted acrylic to show up, and a further piece of oak plywood laser-engraved with a logo and custom message. A triangle hanger is fitted to allow hanging on a wall if desired.
Once the design work has been created for a custom map there is also the option to add coasters of your design/s.
Please allow two weeks for production of an existing design and 2-3 weeks for a custom piece. Please note this is likely to increase in the run up to Christmas.
As wood is a natural material its grain will vary from map to map, similarly wood colour may vary from map to map, therefore I can't guarantee your map will look exactly like those in the photos or be an exact colour match to one another.
