Double custom maps
***The shop is currently shut for the festive season, it will reopen mid-January. A huge thank you to all my customers!***
Choose two places in the UK that are important to you and I will laser-engrave them to create a piece of wall art.
It could be where your family members live or the location of where you got engaged to your love, along with the location of where you got married. Provided they're both in the UK I can recreate them for you on oak veneered plywood and add a special personalised message to the back.
If you would like a custom piece creating please contact me with your chosen locations at firstname.lastname@example.org for a quote.
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 choices 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 £10-40 per map depending on their complexity in addition to the regular purchase prices seen in the drop down menu. Therefore a custom piece of this size will range from a minimum of £75 to a maximum of £140 (including extra personalisation - see below). If you would like to chat about creating a custom piece then send me a message at email@example.com and include the addresses or the coordinates (find them here) of the locations you would like creating.
Map wall art includes an icon (such as a star or heart) placed in a location of your choice on the front of each map, and a message on the back piece.
If you would like to add extra personalisation, such as GPS longitude & latitude co-ordinates, or text and/or dates for each of the locations selected this will be £5 extra. If you would like existing designs with extra personalisation simply select this option from the drop down menu.
Size and scale:
You can choose for your maps to be displayed either vertically or horizontally.
Double vertical custom maps are 11cm in width, 22.7cm in height, and 3.4cm in depth. They are created to a scale of 1:12500.
Double horizontal custom maps are 22.7cm in width, 11cm in height, and 3.4cm in depth. They are created to a scale of 1:12500.
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 maps 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. Two triangle hangers are 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 one week 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.
