Freestanding hand-cut wooden map letters. Hand 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, from anywhere in the world. We have more than 15,000 maps in our collection at any one time so we're bound to have the one you require. And on the rare occassion 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.

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.

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.

  • 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.
  • 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 bare 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.
  • Please double check that your chosen location name does not share its name with another location, This occurs regularly for example in the USA where UK town names are borrowed. Please include postcode, county or country names on your order to avoid these simple mistakes. If there is a mistake made between us we will exchange.

Hand-cut from solid wood.

    Bought these for my husband for our 5th wedding anniversary, and he was really pleased with them - they are something different, with locations which mean something special to us. I would say the do seem slightly expensive for what you get, but then again, they are unique and are a good talking point!

    They are fine, and if the service hadn't been so utterly terrible, then I might feel more positive towards them. Instead I just feel like they are very average quality and overpriced.

    Bombus's response:

    Thanks for your feedback. We’re sorry that your order wasn’t received as quickly as you had hoped and totally understand the disappointment this has caused. We communicated with you regarding the delay and expressed that occasionally during the Christmas period there can be a longer lead time as we are hand-making everything ourselves. We do state the nature of the items in all our descriptions. We offered to send over seas for you and did not hear back. We then refunded your original postage cost. We also offered you a full refund if you wished to return the item. Again, we’re very sorry for the delay, and please let us know if we can assist you further.

    Item was fine HOWEVER it took numerous complaints to get it delivered on time, although it was already 2 weeks late.
