Every reference has been thoroughly researched, symbolized, and carefully labeled on the map. A unique colored-coded label and legend will guide you on the reference.

Specs & Construction

Museum Quality Fine Art Production: We have built the finest map production studio in the USA, investing in the best printers and using only archival quality materials! We use specialized printing equipment that produces the finest quality prints to display clear labeling, vivid geography, and oceanography. If you are in the area, come visit us in Pleasanton, California!

Each of our maps are the product of years of research, backed by decades of professional GIS, cartography, and design experience. We keep no stock - every single map we produce is a custom production, made to order just for you. We love personalizing our maps to give you the highest quality experience.

Map Size Selection:  The biggest factor in displaying a detailed map is the size. We can produce this map in these sizes: 24x16", 30x20", 36x24", 48x32", 60x40", and 72x48".  

The 60x40" and 72x48" sizes are available as Rolled Prints or as a 3-Panel Canvas Wrap (premium and highest-quality craftsmanship).

The larger the size, the more impressive the display and view of the details in the map.

Need a small USA map that will fit in a limited space, the 24x16" and 30x20" inch size is so charming.

If you will be working with a local framer to display one of our paper or canvas posters in a custom frame, we will be able to accommodate any size between our standard offerings (though not deviating from our 1.5 aspect ratio), and include any margin you specify. Reach out to collaborate.

Framed Map Size vs. Outside Dimensions: Our sizing choices specify the size of the printed map itself. Our frame options will increase the overall size of your final product depending on your selection.

For example:

  • Maps sized 24 x 16 inches will total 26.5 x 18.5 inches with the frame
  • Maps sized 30 x 20 inches will total 34 x 24 inches with the frame
  • Maps sized 36 x 24 inches will total 40 x 28 inches with a selection of a 2-inch frame
  • Maps sized 48 x 32 inches will total 52 x 36 inches with a selection of a 2-inch frame

For specific dimensions, see our page on Map Finish Options

100% Made in the USA by a Small Women-Owned Business.  What sets our business apart from most map companies: we are a team of professional Geographers, Cartographers, and Environmental Scientists. We have a passion for making maps and take the profession seriously - to produce beautiful and accurate maps. We apply thousands of layers using GIS and use optimal projections that reduce distortions. Special cartographic features are intricately made on the map and carefully labeled. We include special details that most of our competitors miss - such as real oceanography, accurate projections, and comprehensive labeling and referencing. Our passion and master craftsmanship make our map art stand out.

What's Included

What's Included with a Canvas Wrap or Framed Map:  500 Map pins and pin case. Each push pin map is individually made to order with archival quality materials. The print is mounted to gatorfoam pinboard, which will not warp, bend, or crush like cork or foamcore. We prepare the map with premium hanging hardware so you can start pinning your adventures immediately. This exclusive hanging solution keeps the map stable on your wall, even while pinning where you've been. The map is nicely packaged and shipped in a large box, ready to give as a gift.

What's Included with a Rolled Poster Map: Pins are not included by default, be sure to add pins in the order options if you plan to create your own push pin map. Gem stickers work well when the map isn't mounted to pin board. Consider adding a poster hanging kit to your order if you're not sure how you'll display your poster.

Poster Prints: Each one of our maps is crafted individually, unlike mass-produced alternatives.

Our posters are available in various sizes, all tailored to fit standard frames, we include an additional margin in the print to prevent coverage by the frame's lip. If you intend to DIY a push pin map with one of our posters, be sure to let us know in the order notes in your cart to adjust the print margins to your specs. To maintain the map's impeccable condition, it is carefully rolled with a robust tube, eliminating any possibility of folds or creases during transportation.

FAQ

How are push pin maps made?

We make our maps at our studio in Pleasanton, California, USA. These are our works of art, and we craft each one to order - we do not keep stock products in inventory.

Each map is a product of years of research and design. We love the opportunity to combine science and art in these wonderful travel maps, and we especially love personalizing them just for you!

Your map will be produced to your specifications using our archival quality materials and fade-resistant inks on large format printers. If you choose a poster in canvas or paper it will be rolled and mailed to you. For ready-to-hang options in framed or stretched canvas, we will mount your map on archival quality pin board and include everything you need to start pinning and build lifelong memories.

We do not use foamcore or cork backing - the gatorfoam we mount pin maps to is a premium archival quality rigid material that will not warp over time, bend away, or crush as you pin your travels. Your pins will be held tight for a lifetime. This material also enables us to offer you incredible clarity with satin paper options that have a smooth finish, in addition to our canvas offerings.

Our canvas wrap and framed maps include premium hanging hardware as well. You will find the pre-installed rigid hangers make it easy for you to hang your map and keep it solidly level, and no guessing or measuring where to drill like for a wire!

Should I choose canvas or paper?

All of our push pin maps are mounted to archival quality pin boards. This premium, rigid material will not only hold your pins tight for a lifetime, but also provides a smooth surface that allows us to offer you smooth satin paper prints. In contrast to canvas there is no fabric weave visible, making text and other details clearer when printed at small sizes.

Canvas prints are better able to stand up to being touched, and allow us to offer the frameless stretched “canvas wrap” format at up to very large sizes.

We offer framing for both canvas and paper, and they both look incredible. From more than a couple feet away, the differences fall away, and either will earn you admiration as they hang from your wall.

  • Paper: better clarity of tiny details
  • Canvas: more options for sizing, better fingerprint resistance
Does this include map pins?

Pins are included with maps produced as push pin maps: canvas wrap and framed maps. We mount these maps to archival quality pin board so that they're ready to hang and begin tracking your lifetime of adventures.

Rolled posters do not include pins. These ship rolled in a tube for you to hang as a poster, purchase our poster hanging kit, make a DIY project, or contact a local framer. While we provide incredible quality with our push pin map production, many people do enjoy keeping rolled canvas posters as a traveling companion they can pack with them. If you would like to make your own pin board with one of our posters, be sure to add a pack of map pins to your order!

Will there be a hole if I remove a pin from my map?

Yes. Your mark on the world is permanent.

Our pin maps are produced with archival quality gatorfoam pin boards that will retain their shape over time, avoiding the issue of pins falling loose on their own like in common foamcore or cork boards. Push pin maps are made to be used!

When will my map arrive?

Maps without personalization will enter production right away. Poster will ship within one business day, while push pin formats may take one to three business days for us to craft to your specs.

If you request personalization options in your order you will receive an email from us with your proof - a preview of your map with your custom requests applied. Be on the lookout for this message (sent within one business day of your order), you must respond to it before we print and build your map. You can request additional changes and a new proof. After your approval your map will be crafted to your specs and shipped - within 1-3 days depending on the size of your order and our current volume.

We handcraft each of our maps at our studio in Pleasanton, California, USA. (Drop by if you're in the bay area!)

Standard shipping timeline in business days:

  • East Coast - 3-5 days after your map has shipped
  • Central - 2-4 days after your map has shipped
  • West Coast - 1-3 days after your map has shipped
How do I hang a map?
  • Framed and Canvas Wrap maps come pre-installed with unique rigid hangers, featuring an incredibly easy positioning process that'll keep your map level and steady even while you're placing your pins. Just have a hammer and some space on your wall ready. View our instructional video to learn more.
  • Poster options will additionally offer hanging kits, or you can keep it rolled for easy travel, or even take it on as a project to frame it yourself.

I love it

My whole family gathered around on Monther's Day to remember all the places we had been too and talk about the places we still wanted to go! It was a great conversation piece and we can't wait to add to it!

I ❤️LOVE❤️ this map!

I have been dreaming of having a national parks pin map for years but couldn't find what I was looking for. This was it. I love that it has so many national park sites besides just the big national parks. The many different colored pins are perfect so we can have some of our road trips a different color, and I love the case they come in. The map came sturdily packaged. They are not kidding about how well-packaged this map is. Most importantly, it's beautiful. I keep walking past it and stopping to think about the places my family has gone and the places we'll go in the future. I have surrounded it with 11x14 canvases of our family's trips to national parks, and the whole wall brings me nothing but joy. Thank you!

Even better than I imagined

My map is positioned on the hallway wall, framed by the entrance so everyone notices. I've begun pinning the places I've been. I would very much like a booklet listing all the places on the map that I could use as a checklist for the places I've pinned.
