The maps we create for our customers is always a very gratifying experience each and every time we make one. Our customers are always proud of their rooted communities and places or land in which they call theirs. Others want to capture a special spot like a lake filled with great memories they have from each summer. Whatever it may be, what better way to show off your favourite place on this earth than with a beautiful two toned, multi-layered metal and wood map.
Make this map part of your home decor and showcase that special place you have in your heart.
A MAP WITHIN A MAP, WITHIN ANOTHER MAP
As you can tell our maps look different than other maps. Even though the metalwork is a duplicate part which we make over and over again. The special part comes with the wood engraving insert. This wood engraving has a wooden arm attached to the side and this arm points exactly to where the location we are referencing to on the main metal plate. This is the first map. Within the engraved piece, we show a zoomed in view of what this area looks like as a map. This is the map within a map. Now to take it one step further, we need to also show the main focal point on another blown up view, whether it be a small town, a sub-division or an enclave of a major city. This is what I call the map within a map, within another map. Boom!
WOOD ON METAL
Our brand brings us back to the two toned, multi-layered design. Wood on bare metal or wood or rusted metal. Both designs are beautiful and are locked in using a clear coat sealer.
Both metal and wood materials are CNC laser cut and engraved to ensure the highest precision available.
It started out in Saskatchewan, but now we are expanding into other Canadian provinces and even south of the border. We can create a map for anywhere in North America. Contact us if you would like us to look into a specific map location in North America.
Many of our customers are proud land owners with acreages and properties at the lake, and therefore they want their land location coordinates shown on their map.
We label these land locations using a special pin as shown in the pictures. We have kept the design of the land location pin simple and elegant. We also reference the nearest small town, or any other requested landmark on the same map.
Each land location map that we make are always sent off as proofs and reviewed by the customer prior to engraving. Each of these engravings are unique with personalized details so we need to make sure all of the information looks correct with the customer involved before we engrave them.
WHAT'S IN THE BOX
These maps are installed using 3/4" dia. wall stand-off hardware. The maps end up being offset from the finished wall by 1" creating beautiful shadows in behind.
Each map comes packaged in a box, including wall-stand off hardware, 1:1 template and instructions on how to hang.
