About

Home is more than just a house

CartoCreative is a shop where creativity and graphic design meet a burning passion for cartography.

Our story began in high school, when we met at a school for the arts. We immediately connected and talked about starting our own business where we could create affordable art people would be proud to hang in their homes. This dream has been developing over our ten years together and has now become a reality.

In university, I studied commerce and urban planning while my boyfriend and business partner did a double major in graphic design and cartography, completing his thesis in Italy.

Home barely long enough to repack our bags, we quickly began our globetrotting adventure. We taught English throughout Asia, road tripped across North America, backpacked through Europe, and helped build habitats in Africa, before returning to Ontario, Canada.

Upon our return, we began creating maps and skylines reminiscent of our adventures. In May of 2013, we participated in an artisan market and our work was a huge success. After completely selling out of prints within an hour, we decided it was time to open an Etsy shop and started building it that night.

We continue to create each map and skyline lovingly by hand, revisiting past memories and being introduced to destinations we have yet to discover. Each new city, offers a new place for us to explore. We digitize every print so that they can be customized to represent the connection each person has with a location, whether that be with a quote, a specially placed heart, or a path of their first date.

We are dedicated to creating high quality products and offering the best customer service because this journey includes you and we value every moment of it.

24"x30" prints and larger are shipped rolled in a double thick mailing tube and are sent via Canada Post - Expedited within Canada and the US and International Surface Mail for most international destinations (unfortunately due to the size of the package larger international packages have to be sent via boat and can take 4-6 weeks to arrive without a shipping upgrade).

CUSTOMS
*International buyers are responsible for any customs fees and taxes.*
Please be aware of any VATs, tarrifs and taxes charged by the your country. These are not fees added on by us, but are the taxes and fees required of the buyer by the receiving country.

We are not able to gift wrap shipments as customs must be able to open packages, but we are happy to include a gift note (just leave us a message in note to seller during checkout).

It is illegal to falsify customs documents (mark as gifts, lower price, etc). Please do not ask us to commit a crime.

SHIPPING ADDRESS
*Please verify your shipping address during checkout.*
We want to make sure you receive your package :)

EXPRESS/TRACKING
Need your order sooner or want a tracking number? Select the applicable express shipping upgrade during checkout or add this upgrade to your order:
https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/172216438/express-shipping-upgrade

Shipping upgrades must be purchased BEFORE the item is shipped. We are not able to upgrade your shipping if the package has already been shipped.

WHERE IS MY TRACKING NUMBER?
**Standard shipping does not include a tracking number.**
Canada Post only provides useable tracking numbers for upgraded shipping services.

If you require a tracking number, please purchase a shipping upgrade before your item ships: https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/172216438/express-shipping-upgrade

Although most shipping labels will include a bar code, this code is not scanned once the package leaves Canada unless an upgraded shipping service is purchased. For standard shipments, the bar code is used by Canada Post for reference if there is a problem with shipment, but does not get updated regularly.

LOST IN THE MAIL?
If you have not received your package within 20 business days from shipment (Canada/USA) and 35 days (International), we will send you a replacement at no extra cost.

We take a great deal of care to ensure that all goods are packaged securely and leave us in perfect condition. If your item arrives damaged, please send us a message with a photo of the damage and we will send a replacement at no extra cost.
