Here at GeoJango, we offer personalization options so that users can create a special map for their home.
In this article, we'll show you how to customize your map to create a unique piece of educational wall art.
Let's start out by asking the question, what are custom maps?
Custom maps refer to a product where the user can play an active role in the creation of the map. While it's easy to just click a "Buy Now" button on Amazon, our customization process allows users to add creative elements to their product and to have control over the final outcome of their map.
Here you can create a stylish piece of wall art that serves to showcase who you are, what you're interested in and where you like to travel.
Custom Map Titles & Subtitles
The first choice presented to a user is whether they would like to create custom titles. Many people put their individual, family or business name here to highlight what the map represents.
Here are some common title examples:
Our Adventures (title), Kristen & Joshua (subtitle)
The James Family Adventures (title), Life Is A Journey Best Traveled Together (subtitle)
Travel Wide (title), Cherish The Memories (subtitle)
Custom Map Fonts
We've covered our title & subtitle options, but did you know that you can also select different fonts?
We offer multiple font types that can be used to style the title, shown in the examples above. Different fonts can also be used to create greater distinction between the title and subtitle, like the example below.
Perhaps you would like a clever or profound quote on your map.
Custom Map Compass
The next option presented to the user is the text within the compass at the bottom left corner of their map (for world maps only). Many users place a short quote into this section as well as an established date (Est.) to indicate when the couple started dating or got married.
It is also common for users to place their family name in the compass.
Custom Map Legend
A legend is a guide that tells which pin colors match specific travels. Legends are perfect for anyone wanting to track the travels of multiple individuals.
Let's say that your family has traveled to three countries together, you've personally traveled to five and your spouse has traveled to four. Legends help you keep track of these distinctions and allow for greater flexibility when tracking multiple adventures.
Map Customization Matters
From titles to fonts to legends, GeoJango makes sure that you have a voice in the production of your map.
Our maps are designed by a professional Cartographer and Environmental Scientist. We use the highest quality materials that are produced entirely in the USA.
