Freestanding hand-cut wooden map letters, which are decoupaged with vintage maps using the locations of your choice.

Simply tell us which letter, then tell us which map location you'd like us to customise it with, anywhere in the world. We have more than 15,000 maps in our collection so we're bound to have the one you want. And on the rare occasion that we don't already have it, we'll do our best to source it for you.

Please enter your map location(s) in the box provided. Please note: an '&' counts as one letter.

If you require a different location for each letter please pop each letter into your basket one at a time and you will be able to enter a new location for each letter.

or using the drop-down menu, please select the number of letters required in the box provided, which must match the number of letters in your phrase, name or word.

Please note:

We select by hand real cuttings of maps for each letter individually therefore we are unable to offer a sample service or provide photos or scans for approval or comment.

These letters are designed to be a bijoux keepsake rather than giant statement letters.

Specific building and street names may not appear on the maps, and most contemporary resorts hadn’t been built when most of our maps were drawn. We do not guarantee street names will be written on the maps and please bear in mind that modern tourist destinations are not always written on vintage maps.

History occasionally changes names and territories. We can’t be responsible for political, religious or territorial persuasion and we do rely on you to provide us with specific information relating to such issues at the time of placing your order. We will always try to honour your request, discussing it with you if necessary via your 'order enquiry'.

Please double check that your chosen location name does not share its name with another location, This occurs regularly for example in the USA. Please include postcode, county or country names on your order to avoid these simple mistakes.

If there is a genuine error (ie two place names within the same country or similar such issue) we will re-make your letters.

made from:

The maps are hand-cut from actual pieces of vintage maps (not prints, which means we are unable to zoom in or out).

The base letters are solid wood.


Available in two sizes: 10cm high or 20cm high (both 2cm deep)

And remember... these letters are designed to be bijoux.

    I think they are way overpriced and now I have seen them, I am considering not giving them as a present. I also wish I had been more specific with what I wanted in the map down to the suburb. I would have preferred a preview before purchase

    Bombus's response:

    Thanks for your feedback and we’re sorry to hear that you’re disappointed with your purchase. Our products are carefully priced and we always offer the lowest price possible. Personalised and bespoke items are made-to-order to your exact specifications, which increases the time and care we invest in creating them. These letters are hand cut and sanded. The maps are carefully hand selected to your specification and then applied to the wood letter. They then go for a second sanding and finishing process. They are highly labor intensive and are priced as such. We aim for customer satisfaction at all times, and we are sorry to hear that you were not completely happy with your order. Please contact us via your order enquiry if we can assist you further.

    I was thrilled that the map locations on the wooden letters were exactly perfect, despite them being fairly unusual! Thanks again!
