This listing is for the letters H-O-M-E made from maps that tell your story. The dimensions of the letters are: height 3.9inches(100mm), depth 1.4inches(35mm), width varies from letter to letter

How it works:
-You send me a message telling me what places in the world you would like included on the maps on each letter
-I'll check my maps and let you know whether I have the exact places or somewhere close by.
-When we have finalised the details (which maps on which letters etc) you can purchase this listing and I'll start making your letters
-Allow 10 business days for making the letters
-Shipping takes a further 5-7 business days

Some things to keep in mind:
-Be specific about locations. I may not be able to find an exact match but I'll get as close as I can. Sometimes I might be able to show a particular street, sometimes it might be just the state.
-I have maps and atlases showing cities, countries, continents... all over the world. I'm from Ireland so I have absolutely loads of Irish maps!
-A variety of places tends to work better than trying to make four letters that all show one small town.
-I like to mix it up and have maps with contrasting patterns, scales and colours. I use actual maps (not photocopies) so each letter is unique and there's a certain amount of randomness and serendipity to the whole process.
-They always look great! Always.

If you have any questions, queries or a notion that you think might work please contact me.

3D letters are shipped ready made, securely packed in boxes made from 100% recycled cardboard.
