Custom map products
Choose from addresses all over the globe. It could be your house, a vacation spot, a workplace, your school, Elvis's house, etc. You pick the location and up to three markers: "I was here" "I kissed you here" "We got married here" Whatever makes that special spot in the world meaningful to you, we'll embed your marker right into the design.
Each map has been created by Stamen along with Cloudmade and OpenStreetMap.org, so you know these are not your run of the mill maps. One style has a Midnight Commander-like mix of blues and black, while the second one makes you think of maps on cotton candy crack. Pink land, purple highways, red bridges, rainbow rivers and oceans — why not?
- Map Blankets — $190
