Marking Maps- United States Map. Travel Photo DIY Wall Collage
These wooden United States map pieces are perfect for capturing your adventures in a custom DIY collage.
They are individual pieces that fit together like a puzzle. Map grains and wood color may vary. Please note, that the background and displays are not included in the listing.
All 50 states including Alaska and Hawaii. Lightweight material to be able to adhere to a map, mat or print, or wood slab or whatever your creative mind desires.
Hawaii and other states such as the northeast may come tabbed together and are intended to be broken off of the tabs to be separate. We tab to ensure all of the small pieces make it safely to you.
The thickness of the lightweight wood is 3/16"
Please consider your space and measure first- Measure twice, order once. :) If you space out the states you will want to add more to each side. **The large is LARGE and is great for filling a wall, but keep in mind the larger the map the larger the photos will need to be. Texas on the original map is 10"x10", on the medium, it is 13"x13" and on the large is 16"x16". Hope this helps!
***THE PIECES: The Marking Map was originally created to be the pieces to my traveler's map of photos. I made these map pieces to save people from the exhausting and time-consuming task of using an exacto knife for each individual state/country and so the pieces would have a better quality fit. These pieces have also been used as milestone birthday presents (I did my dad's 60th and all of his vacation pictures since he was 10 years old!), newlywed/anniversary gift, retirement gift, or puzzles in classroom. Display your state park trips, kayaking escapes, nation-wide breweries, or ballparks. They could also be framed by themselves without pictures as a rustic wall decoration. Your interests can now be beautifully displayed.
TIPS: I used rubber cement to adhere the photos to the wood. Some people like to use ModPodge or Polyurethane. To put the pieces to a backing, I used Velcro and adhered it to a chalkboard. To trace the photos I used a scrapbooking wax pen and/or a sharpie comes off a glossy photo with a q tip of rubbing alcohol. Some people are more tech-savvy and use a CriCut.
I work hand in hand with Routed 4 U, Sun Prairie, WI. to get you a clean, laser-cut wooden map. #madelocal

Absolutely in love with the map...such a great piece for my travel room theme
I have been wanting to do a 50 states picture map for a long time but I was too afraid to make the purchase. These wooden cut outs are great!! I had a frame made and it is so perfect!! Seller is great with communication and I got it fast! It's amazing how they pack them so nicely for shipment too!!
Loved it. Simple. Light weight. Easy to do. I just used Velcro backs to stick it to a metal piece we got. I ordered some wallet sized photos, once those come in I’ll start rubber cementing them to the states! Very excited
This was exactly what I was looking for! I was nervous about the sizing of each state, but turned out to be perfect! Shipping was faster than expected too!
