A Heart Shaped Map Printed on Wood, personalised with your choice of map location. Two sizes, two woods, and three paint colours available.
This simple pine or birch woodblock has been personalised with a green, blue or mauve painted heart, overprinted with a map to make a unique keepsake to remember a special time and place. The map design is digitally created with the map centered on any location in the world, simply enter the details of place name and postcode in the options menu when ordering. Each map varies but as a rule the maps cover an area of 1 mile x 1 mile, so please bear this in mind when selecting a location.
It is a perfect present for a 5th Wedding Anniversary which is traditionally celebrated by exchanging wooden themed gifts. It would also be a lovely gift for Valentines Day, Birthdays or Christmas.
All of the wood I use is sourced from a sustainable supply. The pine is very lightly stained with a natural stain before printing. The knots and grain in the wood add to the character of the item. Birch plywood has a more subtle grain and is paler in colour. Whichever wood you choose each map is unique and carefully hand finished and protected with a layer of matt varnish.
This item is small enough to stand on a shelf or mantlepiece but can also be hung on the wall. It is supplied with a brass hanger for easy hanging from a picture pin or nail. I also offer this item framed in a simple unglazed white or black wood profile. This gives the artwork a contemporary style and adds to the aesthetic of the finished print. Simply select Framing via the options menu when placing your order, and choose the matching size for the wood you have selected.
