Unique Art Beautifully Customized #ModernMapArt #StarMap #ad

Have you ever been ‘stuck’ on what to gift someone?  It can be difficult, especially when the gift is for someone very special to you.

Disclosure: I have been compensated to share this post. The opinions on this blog are my own.

I was contacted by a company with an unique product that I’m certain you will love!  Modern Map Art “takes your favorite cities, mountains, and places and turns them into beautiful works of art.”   … and that they truly do!  You can choose from map posters, pillows, phone cases, and much more!

For my work of art, I chose a Star Map … basically, a snapshot of the constellation on my wedding day, and then wrote a special message below it.  It’s actually quite simple to customize your map print:

  • select the type of poster
  • select the size
  • choose the colour scheme
  • select the title and its font
  • write your message and select the font
  • lastly select if you want a border and if you want constellations

It’s the perfect way to honour and celebrate a special moment; such as, a wedding, a birth, a special trip, etc.   The options are limitless and really do make great gifts!  Think birthdays, anniversarys, weddings, Christmas, etc., etc.    You don’t have to stick to a Star Map; you can choose a Street Map, a City Map, a State Map, a World Map, a Scratch-Off Map, a Hiking Trail Map, a Topographic Map, or if you have something you’d like done that’s not offered you can contact Modern Map Art to discuss if there’s a way to meet your needs.  That’s pretty fantastic, if you ask me.

Best of all, you receive a proof via email for you to approve!!!  It can’t be more perfect.  The only thing left to do is wait for the processing and shipping time to pass.  Before you realize, you’ll have a simply stunning work of art waiting for you to adorn your wall!

This is the proof that I approved:

“The poster is made from a museum quality matte paper, and Ultrachrome ink.  The ink is rated to last over 100 years, and 200 years if properly framed and maintained.  The matte paper is very thick and looks great.  After printing, the posters are rolled in tissue paper and put in a cardboard tube to protect them while shipping.”

It took longer for me to find/select the perfect picture frame.  I chose a black wooden picture frame with a thick piece of clear glass to protect my artwork.  Of course, I took a picture of it to share with you here; however, it does not do it justice.  What I have is a moment in time that has been captured in constellation form and placed on high quality paper, which I can frame and cherish forever.  I am thrilled with the finished product, and extremely happy and proud to display it for all to see.

This is my finished Star Map that I framed myself (in a 24” x 36”) frame:

Unfortunately, the glass in the frame caused a reflection.  Here’s a different angle …
