We often get asked how we started Push Pin Travel Maps. Well here is the long story short...well shortish! laughingearth_americassmall_airplane
Awesome quote. Inspiration for your map personalization!
This is what makes the magic happen at Push Pin Travel Maps! It may not look super fancy, but it's the most expensive piece of equipment we use. We use it to dry mount all of our maps!

About

Who doesn't love to travel?!

Hello and thanks for checking out our shop! We are Mike and Brenda of Denver, Colorado, and we LOVE to travel. Love is probably not a strong enough word as the majority of our free time is spent trying to figure out our next destination and how to get there. Our favorite travel destinations so far have been Santorini, Amsterdam, Austria, Italy and Thailand.

We started Push Pin Travel Maps after we tried to find a map that uses pins to mark all of our journeys together and to help us plan future ones. To our surprise, we couldn’t find any quality ones we liked that were reasonably priced. So we made our own. We got so many compliments from friends and family members that we decided to share them with others by creating this shop on Etsy. Why should we be the only ones who get to enjoy them?! We started out small in our garage, while we both worked full time jobs. We knew we needed to upgrade to a warehouse once we were having freight deliveries come to our house and we started noticing the weird looks we were getting from our neighbors. As we continued to grow, we realized we couldn't keep working full time and also run our own business. Mike quit his job to focus his full attention on growing our small business. A year later Brenda also took the leap and quit her job to join the fun. Shortly after, we decided a change of scenery was in order, so we moved ourselves and our business to Denver from our hometown of Sacramento, California.

This entrepreneurial journey has been really challenging and also very rewarding. We absolutely love hearing from excited customers when they get their maps or when someone finds the "perfect gift" for a loved one. We hope that you like our maps as much as we like making them. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. Our goal is to make all of our customers 110% satisfied! Again, thanks for stopping by and happy travels! :-)

►► CANADA ORDERS:

Orders being shipped to Canada are shipped via either USPS Priority mail or UPS Mail Innovations. Transit time varies substantially due to the customs clearing process, so we can not guarantee an arrival date. Most orders should arrive within 2 weeks after shipping, but it could take as long as 3-4 weeks. Once your order leaves our hands, it is at the mercy of the USPS.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the fact that we are shipping via the USPS, there will be no duty or brokerage fees. However, Canada customs may asses GST, HST or PST taxes at their discretion. These taxes can be anywhere from 5%-15% of the items total value, plus a handling fee, depending on the provincial destination. Buyer is responsible for any taxes or fees levied by their home country. We have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they could be or when they may occur.

✈✈✈ INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING:

Unfortunately, due to the high shipping costs associated with the size of our maps, we are only able to ship our framed maps to the US & Canada at this time. The cost to ship internationally exceeds the cost of the map, so we are unable to ship to other International destinations. However, the good news is that we are able to ship our DIY Unframed Map Kits Worldwide! You can find those here:

Additional policies and FAQs
FAQ's

★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★

-Where are your maps made?

All maps are handmade right here in the USA! We are located in Denver, Colorado to be exact.

★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★

-What is included with your Framed Push Pin Travel Map?

Every map is a complete kit. Your map will arrive framed and ready to hang with a total of 100 pins in a mixture of red, white and black push pins in a convenient tin for storage. If you would like to have your map personalized, be sure to purchase one of our Personalized listings.

★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★

-Do I need to buy any pins?

Nope, every map comes complete with a set of Black, White and Red pins. There are 100 pins total. If that is not enough pins we do offer additional pins for purchase. These are the same pins included with every map purchase. Designate each color as you see fit. Many customers use one color for Places Visited, Planned Destinations and Dream Vacations. Another option is to assign a color for each traveler in your family. The map on our wall has one for His, Hers, and Our travels together. Additional pins may be purchased in a variety of colors here:

https://www.etsy.com/shop/PushPinTravelMaps?section_id=12108861

★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★

-How are the maps made?

We take great pride in the quality and technique we use to create our maps. Maps are printed on a high quality thick paper. They are then professionally dry mounted to a foamcore board and framed, with the wire hanging kit installed as well. Upon arrival the map will be ready to hang straight on the wall. All you have to do is figure out where you want to display it and use the nail and hanger we have provided. (Sorry, the only thing we can’t do is physically hang it for you!)

★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★

-Is there glass on the front and are the maps laminated?

There is no glass in the frames, as glass would prevent you from inserting pins into the map. Our maps are not laminated as we feel the glossiness of laminate makes them harder to read. All maps are printed on a high quality poster paper.

★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★

-Are the maps available with a different frame color?

Available frame colors include: Black, Brown, Textured White, Barnwood Gray, Rustic Black, Rustic Brown, Solid Wood Cherry and Solid Wood Brown. See listings for pictures of the various frame colors. We are unable to offer any other colors at this time.

★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★

-Do you offer any other sizes?

At this time, we only sell our maps in the one size. In the future, we may decide to add additional sizes. We find that this is the most desired size. The map itself is 24” by 36”. The framed dimensions are 27.5" x 39.5".

★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★

Do the maps have a key or legend to designate the pin colors?

We have found that everyone wants to use their maps differently, so we do not have a legend on any of our maps. We don’t want to limit how you can use your map. We want you to designate your pins as you see fit and only you can decide what is right for your map. However, some customers will create a legend on the optional personalized plaque.

★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★

-Do you offer an unframed map?

We now sell all of our maps unframed with our DIY Travel Maps kit. The kit comes with the paper map of your choice shipped rolled in a tube, 100 pins and a customized plaque. We also send along instructions on how to mount and frame the map upon its arrival.

★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★

-Do you offer any plaques or anything that would personalize my map with my family’s name?

We currently offer personalized versions for almost all of our maps. Plaques can be personalized with up to 3 lines of text and up to 25 characters per line. Please make sure to check all spelling, capitalization and punctuation as what you enter will be exactly what you will receive. We take no responsibility for misspellings or mistakes that are not the result of our error.

★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★

-How up to date are the maps?

All of our travel maps are up to date as of 1/1/2015.

★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★

Can I get a custom map of a specific area, such as a single US City Or State?

At this time we are not able to offer custom maps or area specific maps, but it is something we are looking into. We currently only have the maps that our listed here on Etsy.

★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★

Why Should I Buy A Map From You Guys?

Quite simply (and not to toot our own horn too much)…because we are the best! Not only do we here at Push Pin Travel Maps firmly believe we offer the best looking, best priced and best quality travel maps with pins out there, but our customer service is unbeatable! We strive to make you, the customer, happy; which is something we feel that you don’t see much nowadays.
