Frequently Asked Questions

Is express shipping a "rush" order service?

No, express shipping does not mean that your order will be guaranteed to ship any sooner than the current processing time listed. Express shipping is expedited delivery from the date of shipping. Please refer to the product listing for current production time. In general, custom orders ship within 7 business days and ready-made items ship within 1-2 business days.

Are these map prints?

No, I use authentic vintage paper maps and bound world atlas books to create my work. Generally, I use maps from the late 1930's to 1970's. However, I do use newer maps and atlases as needed for newer countries or if it's the right scale for the design.

Can I see a map of the location I want before ordering?

We do not offer previews prior to ordering nor do we send proofs before shipping. This is due mostly to the fact that we use actual vintage maps and atlases which are hand-cut to order based on the custom location and the design.

Please refer to our product photos for an idea of how a finished piece will look. We are happy to send a photo of your finished order before shipping. Please request this when placing your order.

Are your stated shipping times guaranteed?

The shipping times listed are estimates based on the United States Postal Service (USPS) estimates for the two services I offer: standard shipping (USPS Priority Mail) and express shipping (USPS Priority Express).

While the majority of orders arrive within the estimates, I am not able to guarantee this. However, I do guarantee that I will ship within my stated processing time and by the date listed in my "thank you" order confirmation email.

I also guarantee that I will work with you to resolve issues that may occur should USPS or customs offices not process and deliver your order within the estimated delivery times.
