Philly Love Notes

Philly Love Notes began as a blog that collected love letters to Philadelphia. It was a way to shine a little light on a city that can be pretty hard on itself. From there, the project grew into a social media campaign and events that promoted all the great things in the city. To provide something more tangible, this Etsy shop was set up to sell custom maps of Philadelphia.

Starting in the Fall of 2019, though, we’ll be offering custom maps of cities around the world. If we can find it on a map, then we can laser cut it into a beautiful piece of art for you; because we know others love their cities as much as we love ours.

Our maps make perfect gifts for house warmings, weddings, birthdays and more. If you're interested in learning more about the mission and maps, please feel free to reach out at phillylovenotes [!at] laserphilly.com.

With lots of Philly love,
Sharif

Hi! Welcome to Philly Love Notes. While I’ve decided to keep the same name, maps are no longer limited to Philadelphia! All of the maps here are made custom to order using the addresses and landmarks of your choosing. All maps are lasercut by me onsite in my studio based in Philly.
