Woodcut Maps empowers its customers to design artwork that commemorates a special place and that is as priceless, personal and treasured as the memories themselves. With sale prices for all wall art starting at just $105, now is the perfect time for people to design and stock up on personalized gifts for sentimental occasions like anniversaries, graduations, housewarmings and weddings. Each handcrafted heirloom-quality map is a one-of-a-kind artwork created out of a collaboration between the customer (as designer) and the team at Woodcut Maps (as craftspeople). The fun and intuitive online design tool at http://woodcutmaps.com makes the design process easy. Customers enter an address, choose their favorite wood species, select the size and orientation of the artwork and zoom and pan to get the perfect framing for their map. The team at Woodcut Maps takes over from there with an updated approach to the classic craft of wood marquetry that takes advantage of precision laser cutting. Everything else is done the old-fashioned way, by hand and with love, out of a small studio in San Francisco.
Since launching in March 2012, customers have designed over 48,000 maps of places all around the world using Woodcut Maps’ online tool. To celebrate, the company is offering 30% off all wall art purchased through March 31, 2013 at http://woodcutmaps.com. 8”x8” maps are available for $105+ (usually $150), 9”x16” maps are available for $196+ (usually $280+), 16”x20” maps are available for $322+ (usually $460+), and 18”x30” maps are available for $630+ (usually $900+). All maps are hand-initialed by the artisans and ship with hanging hardware and hand-letterpressed ID cards that credit the customer for their design.
Woodcut Maps is also partnering with Fab.com to offer 20% off iPhone 4/4s and iPhone 5 backs featuring over 50 select “house designs” from around the globe.
