Rather than being the rather romantic post this sounds like, today I’m sharing a find that I stumbled across almost a year ago now and immediately cursed that I hadn’t found earlier on…. specifically before my big day. One of the details I used to swoon over on the blogs across the pond were the quirky-as-you-like wedding maps incorporated in lots of the stationery. At the time I couldn’t find anything like it over here at all, so I was delighted to find a UK supplier with some amazing designs by Lydia, at Hand-drawn Maps
Every peice of work is unique and starts as a pen & ink illustration drawn by hand, giving a personal, artistic quality that you won’t find anywhere else.
You can get involved and add your own ideas to the design process to ensure you get exactly what you want. What you will receive at the end is a stunning, professional and accurate map that will add an extra sparkle to any invitation, and provide a wonderful keepsake to remember your special occasion.
I just love how personal these are as you can specify all the little details you want included, incorporating your wedding style, themes and colours, plus the details about your lives together that make you a couple. According to which package you choose you then receive a CD with the map as a .jpg image for professional quality printing and every package includes a signed high quality print of your finished map – a brilliant keepsake of the effort you put into the details.
Both the stationery and Hand-drawn Maps come in a variety of styles, some more colourful and quirky like those shown here, or if you love them, but want to stay in keeping with a simpler theme, you can work within one or two colours to tone with and existing stationery design.
