I source, restore and personalise old maps. Perfect as gifts - or to zhuzh up your home office wall!
Established in 1984, The Unique Map Co. is a purveyor of the finest and rarest old maps.
The 'unique map' process begins with sourcing the original antique maps - some as old as 450 years old. I scour libraries, private collections and antique map shops to find the most interesting and beautiful old maps to sell to my discerning customers.
From my workshop in South London, I restore these old maps, scan them in at extremely high resolution - and then personalise them for my customers.
My map personalisation is almost infinitely flexible. If you can think it, I can make it... with old maps! Here are some of the customisations I can do:
- A short message seamlessly added to the map, so that it looks like an original part of the map
- Your house or street highlighted in your favourite colour
- Different frame colours and woods
- Custom map sizes and shapes
Always get in touch if you're after something unique - after all, that's what I specialise in!
Rare old maps, customised to your exact requirements
Sometimes it takes me months to track down the best, rarest and highest quality original maps. Sometimes I will be the first person to scan an antique map that hasn't been seen since the map was first published 200, 300 or even 400 years ago. Those maps are truly unique.
I restore the maps at my specialist workshop in London, taking care to remove some of the dirt, grime and rips but leaving all of the original charm. Then I scan the maps in at very high resolution - thousands of dots per inch - so that you can be guaranteed that all of the names, places and original features of your vintage map will be perfectly preserved.
With my unique digital process, I will then customise or personalise your old map to your exact requirements.
Your map will be printed on high quality matte (non-glossy) paper using only the best ultrachrome giclée inks, framed, and then dispatched by next-day courier.
All personalised maps are made to order and generally take about 7 working days to arrive. They will be packaged safely and dispatched by next-day courier for addresses in the UK.
Delivery can take longer than 7 days. I am also able to expedite orders if you need it in less than 7 days. Please get in touch if you need your map by a specific date.
