  • Handmade
  • Materials: world globe, acrylic paint, gold leaf paint, spray paint, clear sealant, map pins

Thank you for choosing handmade! I can't wait to help design something special for you.

These globes are 8" in diameter and are hand painted with the ocean, and a quote, names, song lyrics, Bible verse, etc. in the colors of your choice.

The continents may be left exposed like in the photos, or you can choose to have them painted. The color scheme of the continents in the photos is the only color scheme currently available in the 8" size (the ocean can be any color). There are other continent colors available in the 12" diameter listing.

These globes will fit up to approximately 75 signatures, depending on how large and how much people write. If you are having a larger wedding, there are 12" and 16" diameter globes also available in the shop that can fit more signatures. The 12" globes that fit up to about 200 signatures are available here: https://etsy.me/3vXdx1u And the 16" globes that can hold up to about 400 signatures are available here: https://etsy.me/38bGL3R


Please list your preferences for all of the following in the COMMENTS/NOTE TO SELLER section of the order form:

1. Ocean color
2. Continents color (or leave the countries exposed)
3. Base/stand color (gold, silver, rose gold, copper, oil-rubbed bronze, white, and black currently available, or I can find another color if you have one in mind)
4. Lettering color
5. What lettering you want on the globe (Names and wedding date, a quote, song lyrics, a Bible verse, etc. that you want lettered on the globe – 10 words or less looks best on the globes, but longer quotes can sometimes be accommodated if you check with me first to make sure they'll fit)
6. Font layout
7. Color of markers, if applicable (gold, silver, and black currently available)
8. Which sign design you would like, if applicable (see the second to last listing photo for available designs with design numbers)



If you would like to include markers to sign the globe with, there is an option to add 4 markers for an additional $10. Please specify the color of markers (black, gold, and silver available).

There is also an option to include a sign inviting your wedding guests to sign your globe. All signs are 8.5”x11” and come printed on card stock with a satin finish. They will be shipped in the same box with your globe. Please specify which sign design you would like. See the second to last listing photo for available options. ***PLEASE NOTE: signs come exactly as shown, and designs/colors are not customizable***


The globe is hand painted with acrylic paint, gold/silver leaf paint, and spray paint, and sealed with a clear coat to protect the paint.

All globes and supplies are sourced in the USA, and we upcycle for sustainability wherever possible.

Many of these globes are vintage or repurposed items, so there may be small imperfections, but overall they are of high quality. Some of the globes may be topographical, so there will be raised portions where the mountains are. Because they are hand painted, there will be brush strokes as there would be on a painted canvas.

This exact color combination of gold and neutral countries is only available in the 8" diameter size.

If you prefer a larger, more geographically precise globe that can have pins inserted into it, there are 12" diameter travel globes available in my shop (see link below):

OMG!!!! Seller did an amazing job creating this masterpiece for my wedding day. It's a very unique style for a guestbook. Can't wait to hear the feedback from our guests.

Guests loved it! Even people walking by our wedding on the beach loved it - so much so we had to set up security for non-party signatures.

We used this globe as the "guestbook" for our wedding in June and it was a hit! Guests attended from different parts of the world and it was fun to have friends and family sign over the country where they were traveling from, where we met, or where we vacationed together! Emily was very responsive to all my questions and she shipped the globe quickly in time for our event. One thing I would caution others about is what to use to sign. Emily recommended either Sharpies or Uni Porsca paint pens. We went with the paint pens and it was a bit of a challenge because they did smear and drip some. The excess is easily removed with acetone, so I was able to clean it up, but if I had to do it again, I would go with thin Sharpies! Thank you for this wonderful wedding memento!

Everything was exactly as we hoped! This globe was such a perfect piece of our wedding reception that we received many compliments on. Shipped fast and carefully, its a beautiful addition to display on our bookshelf that reminds us of our special day.
