Will I pay sales tax on my purchase?

Only orders shipped to Colorado will pay sales tax, as that is where we are located.

What payment methods do you accept?

We accept all major credit cards and PayPal.

Can I return my map?

Of course! If for some reason you are unhappy with your purchase, you may return your non-personalized map or map pins within 30 days of delivery for a full refund. Personalized paper and canvas maps may not be returned due to their custom nature. Please see our Shipping and Returns tab for our full policy.

Do you ship to Hawaii or Alaska?

Yes, we do ship to Hawaii and Alaska! However, due to the size of our maps and the associated high shipping costs, we must charge an additional shipping fee when shipping to these destinations. Orders are shipped via USPS. 

Do you ship to Canada or other International destinations?

We ship all of our maps to Canada and most other international destinations for an additional shipping fee. 

Do you ship to APO or FPO addresses?

Yes, we ship to APO/FPO addresses for an additional shipping fee. Please see our Shipping & Returns tab for our full policy. 

Where are your maps made?

We are extremely proud that all of our Push Pin Travel Maps are Made in the USA!

What are your maps printed on?

We currently sell maps printed on high quality paper and premium cotton canvas. That’s why they make the perfect gift for the 1st anniversary (Paper) or 2nd anniversary (Cotton). Check out our Paper Maps and Canvas Maps!

What is the difference between the canvas maps and the standard paper maps?

Our Paper Maps can be personalized with a gold metal plaque that is affixed to the map and our Framed Canvas Maps and Gallery Wrapped Canvas Maps will have the personalization printed directly on the map, using one of our 6 personalization templates. Additionally, our paper maps have a smooth finish and our canvas maps have a textured look and feel. Both map styles are mounted to foamcore board, which is what holds the pins in place. Both versions are high quality and will last you a very long time. Basically, it comes down to a matter of personal preference!

What comes with your framed maps?

We sell our framed Push Pin Travel Maps as a complete set. Every map comes ready to hang on the wall with 100 pins in a metal tin. An optional personalized plaque may be added to most of our paper maps during checkout. Canvas maps may also be personalized at checkout, with the personalization being printed directly on the map.

Do I need to purchase pins for my map?

Absolutely not! Every one of our maps includes a set of Red, Black and White push pins for pinning your travels. There are a total of 100 pins. If you are a frequent traveler or you would like some different colors, we do offer additional pins for purchase. You can assign each color as you would like. You can use one color for places visited, one for planned destinations and the third color for dream vacations. Another option is to assign a color for each traveler in your family or to choose a different color for different trips you have been on. You could also use the pins to track where family members live or your family’s ancestral roots. The map on our wall has one for His, Hers, and Our travels together.

Do your maps have a legend to designate the different pin colors?

We find that everyone wants to use their maps differently, so we do not have a legend on any of our paper maps. We don’t want to limit how you can use your map. We want you to designate your pins as you see fit and only you can decide what is right for your map. See the above question for a few ideas on how to designate your pins! Some customers will include a legend on their personalized plaque. For canvas maps, we do have the option to include a pin legend which will be printed directly on your map. See item listings for details.

How do you make your maps?

All of our maps are handmade and we take great pride in the high quality materials and techniques we use. The map itself is printed on high quality paper or canvas (depending on the option you choose) and then professionally dry mounted to foamcore board. We then frame the map in the frame of your choice and install the wire hanging kit. You will receive your map ready to hang right out of the box. After you have found the perfect location to proudly display your map, use the nail and hanger we have provided to hang it on the wall.

Are the maps laminated? Does the map have glass on it?

No, our maps are not laminated as we feel the high gloss would make them harder to read and pin. Instead, they are printed on high quality poster paper or premium canvas. No, the maps do not have any glass covering them as this would prevent you from pinning your map.

What color frames are available?

At this time, we carry 8 standard frame profiles and 6 premium frame options. Our premium frames are currently only listed with our Canvas maps. Please contact us if you would like a premium frame for your paper map. We are unable to special order any other frame styles. For a close up and more information about each individual frame option, click here

What sizes do you offer?

Currently, all of our world and US maps are one size. We feel that this is the ideal size to be able to see the full detail of the map while still being able to pin all of the cities you have travelled to. The map itself measures 24” by 36”, while the framed dimensions are 27.5” by 39.5”. A few map titles have different dimensions, so please check the listing details for each map for sizing information.

Can I purchase an unframed map?

Yes, we now offer an unframed DIY Map Kit, for all of our paper maps. The DIY kit comes with the map, 100 pins, a personalized plaque, and instructions on how to mount and frame the map yourself. We do not offer a DIY kit for our canvas maps at this time.

Is there any way to personalize my map?

Yes! Almost all of our Push Pin Travel Maps can be personalized with your name, family name, business name or a favorite quote. Paper maps are personalized with a metal plaque. Each plaque can contain up to 3 lines of centered text and up to 25 characters per line. If you have an idea for a plaque that is slightly longer, please contact us and we will see if we can accommodate your request. Canvas maps are personalized directly on the map itself. Select one of our 6 unique designer options at checkout.

Please note: Personalized maps may not be returned or exchanged. Please double check all spelling and capitalization for your personalization request as what you enter during checkout will be exactly what you will get on your map. Check out our Personalization Ideas page if you aren’t quite sure of what you want your personalization to say and need some inspiration!

Do the world maps show the borders of the United States?

Yes, all of our world maps show the borders of all 50 states. Not all of the world maps have each US state named though. Each map listing has a close up picture of the US portion of the map to give you a better idea on the detail and if the states are labeled. Please ask us if you have any questions about which maps have all the states listed.

Can I get a map of specific area, such as a single US city or State?

We currently only have state maps for California, Colorado and Hawaii. At this time, we are not able to offer other state maps or area specific maps. 

Why should I buy a map from you guys?

Not only do we firmly believe that we offer the best looking, best priced and best quality travel maps with pins out there, but our customer service is unbeatable!
