Unique Maps Co. Exclusive
  • Handmade in the USA

    Your map will be handmade in the US

    The Unique Maps Co. has state of the art production facilities in North Carolina and Michigan, and specialist large format facilities in New Jersey and California. Your map will be printed, framed and personalised in the US.

    Making and dispatching maps locally keeps delivery times down (usually 2-3 days) and means your map should always arrive in perfect condition.

    It's also great if you're buying a gift for someone in the US, but you live outside the US. I can make and deliver your gift locally in the US; you won't have to pay any tax or import duty.

Design your own modern map, based on some beautiful maps and frames designed by The Unique Maps Co.

Drag and zoom the map, add a title and subtitle (and tagline if you wish), pick your frame, tell me if you want the text to be aligned left, middle or right... and that's it!

You can even click the little magnifying glass and search for a specific country, city or street.

I will then create the exact same map - but, of course, the real thing will look far better than the image on your screen.

It'll be printed on beautiful, thick, totally matte paper that looks and feels like a real map. The colours will pop. The details will be crystal clear. And most of all, you'll be the only person on Earth that has it - it'll be a totally Unique Map.

To make sure your map is exactly right, I will send you a draft of the map by email after you order. You can then approve the map, or ask for changes to be made, before I print and frame it for you.

Looking for something a bit different? Take a look at my personalised old maps centred on a house or postcode, based on Ordnance Survey maps dating back to the 1800s.

Map size and text legibility

No matter what size map you order, I will always make sure that the labels on your map are legible.

This means I will sometimes need to zoom in or out. But I will always send a draft of the map to you for approval first.

Border styles

You can choose from two border styles: classic and modern. Please swipe through the product images to see what these look like.

The map making tool will not show you the different border styles. (A technological issue that I hope to fix soon!)

Larger maps

If you are looking for super large custom maps (I can supply maps up to many metres wide), please get in touch.

My large maps are perfect for hotels, pubs, bars and offices - but if you have a large space at home, then they would look amazing there as well!

My standard frame is a black wood frame. It is simple and quite modern looking. On maps up to 36 inches (91cm) the frame is 2cm (0.75in) wide. I use thicker frames on larger maps - usually between 35 and 60mm (1.4in to 2.4in).

In all cases I use super-clear museum-grade acrylic (perspex/acrylite) for the frame glass. It's lighter and safer than glass - and it looks better, as the reflectivity is lower.

All frames are provided "ready to hang", with either a string or brackets on the back. Very large frames will have heavy duty hanging plates and/or a mounting baton. If you have any questions... always get in touch!

If you want a different frame colour or material, click "customise your frame" before adding it to your basket. Learn more about my custom framing and mounting/matting.

Alternatively, I can also supply old map on canvas, foam board, cotton rag and other materials.

If you want to frame your map yourself, please read my map size guide first.

 

For most orders, delivery time is about 3 working days. Personalised orders can take longer, as I have to do the personalisation and send it to you for approval, which usually takes a day or two.

As Christmas draws closer, please take a look at my Christmas delivery deadlines.

Please note that for larger framed orders (over 40in/100cm), and some other framed sizes, the delivery time will be closer to 7-10 days.

If you need your order to arrive by a certain date, please contact me before you order so that we can find the best way of making sure you get your order in time.

I have production facilities all around the world where I print and frame maps. This means your map will be made locally, which cuts down on delivery time and reduces the chance of your map being damaged during delivery. There won't be any extra taxes or duties to pay, and we'll put less CO2 into the air.

All of my maps are well packaged and sent in a rugged tube if unframed, or surrounded by foam if framed.

I try to send out all maps within 1 or 2 days of receiving your order, though some products (like face masks or mugs) can take longer to make.

If you select Express Delivery at checkout your order we will prioritise your order and send it out by 1-day courier (Fedex, DHL, UPS, Parcelforce).

We are able to next-day delivery in some cases if you order before 10am. But usually it's best to contact me first before you order.

Read my full shipping policy

My maps are extremely high quality reproductions of original maps.

I source original, extremely rare maps from libraries, auction houses and private collections around the world, restore them at my London workshop, and then use specialist giclée inks and printers to create beautiful maps that look even better than the original.

My maps are printed on acid-free archival matte (not glossy) paper that feels very high quality and almost like card. In technical terms the paper weight/thickness is 10mil/190gsm. It's perfect for framing.

I print with Epson ultrachrome giclée UV fade resistant pigment inks - some of the best inks you can find.

Please contact me if you're looking for a print on canvas or cotton rag.

Map personalisation

If you want to make your old map really unique, I am able to personalise your map with a short message, for example:

- "Happy birthday, Ben! From Mum & Dad"

- "To My Beloved. Let's Explore The World Together!"

This message will be added to the map in such a way that it looks just like a real part of the map.

Select the "Personalise Map" option above if you'd like to add map personalisation to your map.

Learn more about my map personalisation service.

Get in touch if you're looking for more complex customisations and personalisations.

If you are not happy with your unique map for any reason, contact me for a no-quibble refund.

I am very confident you will like your old map. I have been doing this since 1984. I'm a 5-star Etsy seller. I have sold tens of thousands of maps and have over 1,500 real 5-star reviews.

I use a unique process to restore my maps that is massively time consuming and labour intensive. Hunting down the original maps can take months. I use state of the art and eye-wateringly expensive technology to scan and restore the maps. As a result, I guarantee my maps are a cut above the rest - that's why I can offer a no-quibble refund.

Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (200cm, 6.5ft+) and I can frame and deliver them to you as well, via special oversized courier. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
