A wonderfully bespoke handmade engagement print with screen printed mount showcasing a real vintage map with professional framing.
This unique print is the perfect present for a wedding or anniversary. The map shows the location of where the couple tied the knot.
We have a large collection of vintage maps so we search through our stocks and find the perfect map for your locations. This is then displayed in a hand screen printed double thick mount with the details provided.
This print will be hung pride of place in any home as a constant reminder of that special place where the couple said "I DO".
You provide us with the location of the engagement and we design the mount and start the making process.
We strive to create the perfect screen printed gifts, so if you have any specific requirements or questions then do let us know. It is possible to change the wording if desired and we can giftwrap.
The majority of the maps we have are at a scale that will show towns and cities rather than street maps but for larger cities we do have street plans so it depends on the location required. For very small places and islands we sometimes have to source modern maps to ensure the destinations are included.
Please note that we are often able to create these map prints within a tighter timeframe but have our delivery times set to ensure that we have time to source maps if we don't have anything suitable in stock. If you are needing your print earlier than the suggested delivery times don't hesitate to get in touch and ask what is possible and we can confirm based on our studio capacity.
Always screen printed in black on the white mount for the most striking finish.
We do not offer a proofing service as standard but you can pay to recieve a proof if you want to check the map we will be using before we start the making process. You can then ask for alternatives to if you had a different style map or different scale in mind.
Paper, wood and glass.
We only use real maps in each print and these are mainly vintage road maps and old OS maps. We never reproduce maps as we don't have the rights to do so and feel that the old maps are beautiful in their own right. Sometimes there are creases and signs of use but these all add to the final product. Occasionally we have to use new maps for specific locations but we will let you know if this is necissary for your order.
We hand screen print double thick bright white mounts using waterbased, non-toxic black ink.
The print is then finisehd with a quality black wooden frame with glass cover handmade in the UK.
We have an extensive collection of vintage and new maps as well as atlases that often pre-date 1970s so it can be very tricky to source maps that show specific roads, landmarks and buildings etc. Genrally we pinpoint a town in the UK unless the locations is in a major city such as London or Manchester and then we can sometimes show the actual area and even street. For international loations it is ideal to show a city so we can successfully find a beautiful map of your location but again we can often source slightly more detailed maps but not street maps or OS style maps. Small islands such as Carribean islands and Maldives etc are unlikeyly to be shown in detail but we still have amazing vintage maps of the areas. We include photographs of the actual maps we intend to use in the PDF proofs so you get to see these before you sign them off.
FInal framed size is 10x7 inches.
