Our signature product, the bespoke map heart artwork makes the perfect handmade, personalised gift. You choose the map location. Cute huh?!
The bespoke map heart artwork is ideal for birthdays and anniversaries as well as a new home, wedding or leaving gift. It’s particularly apt for a first wedding anniversary as the traditional gift is paper. What better than to give a beautiful, meaningful gift made out of gorgeous vintage paper?
Map location: please enter only one map location in the box provided, and we will use that as the focal point. Giving more than one map location may delay production of your heart.
Simply choose a single location that’s dear to their heart, and we’ll source a vintage map of the area before transforming it into a beautiful, bespoke artwork. The heart map can then be finished with a handmade frame, either off-white or natural wood, or allow us to choose the frame for you that will complement the colours in the map perfectly.
Would you like it personalised? If you'd like additional personalisation, you can choose to have a plaque added to the frame, engraved with your own message. Just select the option on the right.
As we use pieces of real maps we regret that we are unable to offer a sample service, or to send photographs for approval or comments.
Of course, the map only details the location, it’s the heart behind it that tells the story.
We won! In 2011 our bespoke map heart won 'Gift of the Year' in the notonthehighstreet.com Make Awards. We're especially pleased as this was voted for by our lovely customers. Many, many thanks to all who voted for us.
The heart is cut from vintage map of your specified location.
Our frames are all handmade in the UK as well, from limed wood and high quality UV perspex which protects the vintage map from fading and glare.
Modern versus vintage maps:
Please remember that modern tourist names are not always marked on vintage maps, and that history occasionally changes names and territories. We can’t be responsible to political, religious or territorial persuasion and we do rely upon specifics relating to such issues to be mentioned to us at the time of placing your order. Specific buildings may not appear on the maps, and most contemporary resorts hadn’t been built when most of our maps were drawn.
