Shipping options:

=First class shipping takes 3-9 days to arrive within the US.
=Choose the upgrade to Priority Mail at checkout, and that takes just 1-3 days to arrive after shipping, within the US.

=International first class shipping times vary---generally between 5-20 days in my experience.

=I create and ship items out within 1 to 3 days of purchase. Just let me know if you need it right away---I can often get your print created within 24 hours.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++

All of my one of a kind prints come UNFRAMED. They look great in Ikea Ribba frames, which are easy to use, available in a variety of sizes, come with mats, and are inexpensive. If you have a particular frame or mat you'd like your print to fit inside of, let me know and I can make one to your specifications. :)

From Ikea's Website:
(ALL ITEMS from Opus and Verse come to your UNFRAMED---that is to say, no frame will be sent with your print. :))

RIBBA SERIES
Ikea's RIBBA series has a simple design that always leaves the focus on your pictures. There’s a big range of sizes and colors for hanging or standing, both horizontally and vertically. There’s even a matching picture ledge to display even more of your memories or favorite art.

+++++++++++++++

ALL PRINTS Made with REAL vintage maps and book plates/pages! Even items you see re-listed here are always created using a real vintage page---I'm able to find repeats of some of these pages and use them again. I never use a printer---all my prints are handmade, one at a time, so each one comes out unique.

Home of the Original THE WORLD AWAITS map print. :) My handmade prints make great gifts for the newly married couples, adventurers/travelers, new parents with wanderlust in their nursery decor style, or college students, heading back to school!

If you see a particular font in my shop, that you'd like used with a different phrase, just let me know and I can probably make that for you.

++++++++++++++++++

Every single one is an original, handmade by moi. What's my secret? Each is made with a real vintage map and not a copy! You can't photocopy or print colors this vintage-y cool and vibrant.

Thanks for stopping by!

About

Commemorate or Inspire!

Combining the beautiful worlds of vintage text and hand printing and gorgeous vintage maps, I love to create the perfect print for my customers. Would you believe I was the first seller on Etsy to make a print with the phrase THE WORLD AWAITS?! It's sure caught on.

I use hand applied linocut, handmade and commercial stamps, alphabet blocks, stencils, found objects, along with pigment inks, block printing inks and Copic markers in a variety of colors---- ALONG WITH REAL VINTAGE MAPS and VINTAGE BOOK PAGES!--- to create each print. The pages themselves inspire me and whatever idea I may have for a word print, it is often changed when I get that paper in my hands---it's got it's own ideas.

I'd love to make a handmade print for your.........
wedding, party, birthday, home decor, child's bedroom, nursery, gift giving, anniversary, baby shower, bedside table, kitchen wall, laundry room, foyer, bathroom vanity, or any other place you can think of! OR, of which you can think.

Contact me anytime with your ideas!

=First class shipping takes 3-9 days to arrive within the US.
=Choose the upgrade to Priority Mail at checkout, and that takes just 1-3 days to arrive after shipping, within the US.

All prints shipped in a rigid mailer, with backing, and sealed in an archival sleeve. Shipping information comes with a tracking number, to track your package's progress. I also include information about how the print is made and ideas about framing your print. I don't include an invoice, so that isn't an issue for gift-giving.

If you'd like a note for your gift recipient included, free of charge, just write in what you'd like your note to say in the NOTES box that will show up as you go through checkout. I'll include a handmade, handwritten note for your gift recipient.

Contact me anytime with questions! I'll get back to you quickly!
Refunds and Exchanges
I am happy to do refunds or exchanges on ELIGIBLE items up to 5 days after the date the package was delivered to you, according to USPS tracking. This would assume that your package or print was damaged and it was due to something I did, not that you changed your mind.

Open and inspect packages upon receipt and contact me right away if you have questions or concerns.

Refunds not available on custom prints.

I hand make each print, and do not simply push print on a printer---mine are handmade, one at a time, using real maps and vintage book pages, along with stencils, stamps, and artist pens.

Please read shop item descriptions, all the way through, before purchasing. Measurements are close, but not precise----nearest inch or half inch is given.
All prints come to you unframed.

I'm not responsible for packages that are stolen, so please make sure your mail carrier knows of a safe and secure place to leave your packages, especially if you live in a communal/shared space or apartment without a lock box.

Overseas packages do not come with tracking once they've left the US, unless you have upgraded to Expedited Shipping. Convo me for details if you'd like faster shipping WITH tracking. If your item doesn't show up, without tracking, I am not able to offer a refund.

Overseas packages that are returned to sender, for any reason will not be automatically resent---unless you'd like me to, in which case, I'll send you an invoice for additional shipping costs.

International customers are responsible for all customs fees and local postal fees. You must pick up your package if customs or the local post office holds it. I am not responsible for shipping or reshipping fees if you didn't pick up your package.

Contact me ANYTIME, really, with questions or clarifications! I'm happy to give you an information you may need that I've forgotten to mention here. :)

Thanks!

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

I love making custom orders! If you have a particular map or location you'd like shown on a vintage map print, just contact me and I'll let you know if I have what you're looking for.

Custom locations:

If you see a print in my shop that says I LOVE YOU TO PARIS AND BACK on a map of France, but you want one saying I LOVE YOU TO FLORENCE AND BACK on a map of Italy, I can do that!

Contact me anytime for a custom listing! I'll set it up for you and send you a link to purchase. :)

Gift wrapping and packaging

I'm happy to include a gift card with message. Just write in the message you'd like in the NOTES box at checkout and I'll include that with your purchase---great idea if you're drop shipping a gift to a friend. Just let me know the address you'd like it sent to as well.

Sizing details

My real vintage maps are generally 8x11, or 9x12, or 12x14.
If you see something you like, and want a different sized map, feel free to contact me and I'll let you know what I have in stock!

ABOUT my map prints

These are real vintage maps, with custom fonts, hand pulled printing on top! Never photocopies. You get the full map, not cut down, so that you'll have as much map as you need for your custom phrasing, with or without a mat.

I source maps from 1930's through the 1970's---some locations may be antiquated and not updated. That's part of the fun of using real vintage maps. For example, older maps may show Thailand as Siam.

If you want to make sure you get a map with up to date information on it, just let me know that. I'll likely be able to find what you need.
