Art that feels like home

What makes EJayDesigns prints so special?

With each print, you may set your most cherished locations in glistening hand-painted gold, copper or silver, against intricate watercolour and pair with FREE custom titles, for a truly bespoke piece of art.

This makes for a very unique addition to the home or highly personal gift.

How did this start?

Born and raised in the Outer Hebrides, I've always had a love/hate relationship with my quiet home. My desire to travel and live abroad taught me how lucky I am to have grown up in such a unique place.

It all started in 2013. Working in a mining town called Mount Isa in the middle of the Australian desert. I was 19 and unsure of what to pursue in life and I missed my tiny island terribly.

One day, I came across an online shop that could burn your country onto the cover of journals. I instantly fell in love.

The shipping price from the U.S to the Australian desert was more than the cost of the journal but it didn't matter. No one could put a price on home, and I needed this journal. I chose the Isle of Lewis and a heart on Stornoway. Every time I used it, I felt comforted that home would always be there.

Although most of 2019/20 was spent in the South of France, Scotland was never far from my mind. I remembered the feeling my journal gave me all those years ago and soon found myself designing images of a variety of Scottish islands as I wanted to create a piece of art that could remind an islander of their true home, no matter where they were in the world.'

From this, an unexpected business was born.

The knowledge that customers all over the world can be reminded about their roots, because of my maps, is a dream come true.

Each map is adorned with hand painted gold to your special locations, completed with a sprinkle of gold dust for added shine.

Frequently asked questions
How long will a bespoke map take?

Lead times are typically 14 working days but as each print is made to order and I work alone, this can vary.

Please expect a 14-20 day dispatch. Depending on how booked I am, sometimes I dispatched faster.

Please check your junk in order to respond to e-mail as this effects dispatch time.

How many gold locations can I have?

You may have unlimited gold locations.

If you have over 4, it is appreciated that you 'show' me a photo/screenshot of where you would like your marked locations.

It takes a lot of time to research unknown locations, so showing me a diagram will speed up the process of dispatch.

Where do you ship from?

I reside on the Isle of Lewis, therefore postal times are a little slower as this is a remote island in the north of Scotland.

Mugs and clothing are outsourced.
