Levi & I have been creating maps for a while now, and while we love growing our shop with new locations, custom maps are always a favourite thing to create. We have surpassed our goal of creating over 100 maps, and we treasure each story that has been shared with us describing the meaning of a particular location. Places can tell stories in ways that words don’t quite grasp. Maps are a perfect way to showcase your favourite memories, without filling your home with tacky souvenirs.
We are sharing 10 location ideas for hand-drawn maps.
Your wedding venue
Your first home
The hospital your babies were born
A map of your city, with all your fave coffee shops marked
Where you went to college
Two maps side by side: the birthplace of you & your spouse
Three maps in a row: where you and your love met, had your first kiss & got married
Your favourite travel location
Your hometown, with the coordinates written to your childhood home
A map of your country, with a line between you and your long-distance friend
