Thank you for choosing handmade! I can't wait to help design something special for you.

Custom travel themed globes are the perfect way to celebrate and remember all the amazing places you visit in the world. You can combine a piece of home decor with a keepsake of your travels. They're perfect for world travelers, military families, adventurers, and missionaries.

These globes are 12" in diameter and are hand painted with the ocean, continents, and a quote, song lyrics, or Bible verse in the colors of your choice. Pins in the color of your choice are inserted into the destinations you list so you can remember all the fun trips you've taken.

You can choose the option for extra pins so you can continue to add new destinations as you travel.

The continents may be left exposed like in the photos, or you can choose to have them painted before the pins are inserted.


Please list your preferences for all of the following in the COMMENTS/NOTE TO SELLER section of the order form:

1. Ocean color
2. Continents color (or leave the countries exposed)
3. Base/stand color (gold, silver, rose gold, copper, oil-rubbed bronze, white, and black currently available, or I can find another color if you have one in mind)
4. Lettering color
5. What lettering you want on the globe (Names and wedding date, a quote, song lyrics, a Bible verse, etc. that you want lettered on the globe – 15 words or less looks best on the globes, but longer quotes can sometimes be accommodated if you check with me first to make sure they'll fit)
6. Font layout
7. List of places to mark with pins (if applicable)
8. Color of pins (if applicable – gold, silver, white, and black currently available)

**The pins used to mark the locations you list are included (up to 20 locations), after that there is an extra charge for additional pins. There is an option to increase to 40 pins or 60 pins in the ordering process if you need more to add additional destinations later.**


The globe is hand painted with acrylic paint, gold/silver leaf paint, and spray paint, and sealed with a clear coat to protect the paint.

All globes and supplies are sourced in the USA, and we upcycle for sustainability wherever possible.

Many of these globes are vintage or repurposed items, so there may be small imperfections, but overall they are of high quality. Some of the globes may be topographical, so there will be raised portions where the mountains are. Because they are hand painted, there will be brush strokes as there would be on a painted canvas.

I'm absolutely IN LOVE with this globe! I'm putting it in my sons nursery, which is travel theme. Emily was so awesome to work with. She literally received so many requests/messages from me, as I wanted this globe perfect! Prompt responses and beautiful work! I was hesitant bc of the price, but it's worth every penny to me, and helps a refugee relief, so that's a plus! The ONLY thing I would change is the stand being more of a nickel finish, but Emily let me know from day one my only choices were gold or silver, so this wasn't a surprise. I promise you won't be disappointed with your purchase :)

This globe is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! I contacted Emily to see if ahe could get me one 3 weeks before my wedding and she did!! She is amazingly fast and good at her work! Easy to contact and professional! We loved our guest globe and everyone enjoyed signing it. Now it is a beautiful center piece in our home. We love the added pins she offers to put in globe on places we have traveled together. Love it so much! Thank you Emily!

The guest globe was such a hit! We knew we wanted something a bit more interactive from guests than a traditional guestbook and something we could display in our home after hte wedding was done and this was just the perfect thing. The globe looked just like in the photos and came in exactly on the timeline described. The pins were a little harder to get in than I thought they would be but with a little elbow grease, it was no problem! Definitely would recommend.

I loved the globe that Emily made for my husband & me to use as a guest book for our wedding so much that I ordered a different globe for my brother & sister-in-law as a Christmas gift. The globe for them features their names and pins in the 3 cities where they had wedding receptions last year. The paint job and hand lettering on the globe are fantastic. Emily is great at communicating and ships quickly, especially for a custom item. I highly recommend Consider the World if you are looking for a custom globe!
