TheWanderingWhale is taking a short break

Note from shop owner After much thought, I've decided to close my Wandering Whale shop. Thanks to everyone who supported this side business through its 3 year run. At its peak, I had 17 orders in one month (craziness), and over the past 12 months, I've only had 6. All of this brings it to a natural conclusion, and leaves me with no guilt about closing shop. It was fun while it lasted, and The Wandering Whale paid for 100% of the startup costs for my true passion, Kelly Benton Photography, which I know was nothing short of divine timing. If you or anyone you know ever needs a map, you can still send me a message and I'll see what I can do. Have a good holiday, season, everyone. Here's to a prosperous 2014!

Refunds and Exchanges
If you are unhappy with your map, please let me know if there is any way in which I can fix the problem. If the issue is beyond repair, we will negotiate a refund between 25-100% of the amount you paid, depending on how much time I already committed to the project. You must request your refund within 4 days of receiving your map.

If you have ordered a gift certificate and would like a refund, you must request the refund within 2 weeks of placing the order. Your personalized gift code will then be deleted and void forever.
Additional policies and FAQs
Normally, it takes me about a week to send you a first draft. Sometimes it's quicker than this... but if it's going to be longer than a week, I will always let you know.

Once the map is complete, you have full rights to print it however you please. You may not alter the map in any significant way without consulting with me first. I want only my very best work to be viewed by the public.

I maintain all rights to my artwork and may use your completed map to promote my shop in any way necessary.

All my work is 100% handmade and unique. No two maps are exactly alike. The success of your map will depend on how many locations you ask for and the complexity of the destination.
