Personalization Process: All of our personalization templates can be modified with your own text. For instance, we can add a pin legend to any of the options and can modify any of the pin legends to suit your needs. We can also change the quotes listed in the examples or add a quote to most of the options, as long as the text is not too long. If you have any questions about whether a personalization you would like will work, feel free to Contact Us. Please note, space is more limited on some designs than others. If you submit your order and we can’t make what you want work, we will contact you to let you know.

How to Order
How to Order: To order, simply select "Yes, include personalization" from the drop-down menu on the maps listing page. Next, select one of the 9 personalization layouts and enter your text in the provided “Personalization Text” box. Please Note: If the option you select includes a quote or saying it will be included unless you request for the quote to be removed or changed. Next select "Yes" or "No" from the “Pin Legend” drop-down menu (see below for info on pin legends). Enter your legend text in the provided "Legend Text" box. Lastly, select “Add to Cart” to proceed through the checkout process.
WHAT IS A PIN LEGEND?
All of our maps come with 150 total push pins in a mixture of red, white and black. A pin legend designates what each pin color on your map represents and can be added to any of our 9 Canvas map personalization templates. Example pin legends can be seen at the bottom of options 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 8 & 9. The pin legend can say whatever you like! Examples include:
Past Adventures, Future Trips, Favorite Destinations
His Travels, Her Travels, Family Travels
Our Memories, Our Dreams, Special Places
Mike’s Travels, Brenda’s Travels, Our Travels
Places Visited, Places Lived, Bucket List
Been, Going, One Day…
My Adventures, My Bucket List
We can easily accommodate 2-6 legend items and occasionally more, depending on the text length of each item and the map being purchased. Upon receipt of your map, you would place a different pin color next to each legend designation and then pin the map accordingly in those colors. If you add more than 3 legend items, we recommend purchasing additional pin colors as the map comes with 3 colors (red, white, black). Additional pin colors can be found Here:
If you choose option 4, but would like to remove the date and change the quote, enter your personalization as follows:
Mike & Brenda
Change Quote to: Oh, the places we'll go!
Legend Text: Mike’s Travels, Brenda’s Travels, Our Travels
Please enter everything you would like printed on your map. If you leave out a date, we will not print a date. If you select option 4, 5, 6, 7 or 9 and do not want the quote included, please leave a note that says "Remove Quote". If you’d like the quote changed to your own special quote, leave a note that says “Change quote to…”.
We are experts at personalizing maps and will make sure your custom personalization looks awesome before it is printed on your map. We do not generally send proofs without a request as this can substantially delay getting your order shipped. However, if you would like a proof of your personalization, please leave a note at checkout that says, “Send Proof”. Upon request, proofs will generally be sent within 1-2 business days after ordering. If you request a proof, we will not ship your order until you approve the proof, so please keep an eye on your email. We are not responsible for delays in shipping your order if we do not hear from you regarding your proof.
Please note: Emails from us can sometimes get caught in your Spam or Promotions folders. Please check these folders if you have not heard from us within 1-2 days after ordering, so your order is not delayed.
Personalized Canvas Maps may take up to 2-4 business days to process when standard shipping is selected. If you select Expedited Shipping
at checkout, we will do our best to ship your order within 1-2 business days. Please add 2 days to the estimated delivery date provided at checkout. If you need your map by a certain date, please contact us
before ordering to confirm that we can get your order to you by that date. We will certainly try our best to meet your request! We are unable to send proofs for orders selecting expedited shipping as this would delay expediting your order.
Typos: Please, please, please carefully review your personalized text before submitting your order. We are not responsible for any typos you make while placing your order. You can review your text in the shopping cart before placing your order and then you will receive an order confirmation email after you complete your order where you can once again review your text for accuracy. If you do notice an error after submitting your order, please contact us ASAP so we can correct the typo before your map is printed. If you contact us after your map is printed, but before your order is shipped, we will charge you a $20 fee to have the map reprinted.
Cancellation/Return Policy: Once your order has shipped, or your proof is approved, we can no longer accept changes, cancellations, returns, or exchanges on custom personalized maps. We thank you for your understanding.
