Design your own custom map: you chose what you would like to display and share with your guests – event locations and suggestions of places to eat, drink and explore. I will create your own personalized map using your preferred colors, fonts, and style. A tailor-made map is a unique extra-special touch for your special occasion.
Your guests seeing their real-time location on your own map takes it over the top! If they find themselves in a certain part of town with time to spare, they can pull up your map to find your recommendations to places right around they are standing. You can also print the map for Grandma and others who may not have a smartphone but will love to see your very own personalized map.

Custom-made, tailored map for your special occasion where your guests can see their real-time location on their phones, right on your custom map! Maps are perfect for anniversary celebrations, family reunions, bachelor and bachelorette parties, school reunions, and group trips and vacations.
I use specialized mapping software to create your tailored map so that when you send your guests your PDF map, they can open it on their smartphones, tablets, watches, or other GPS-enabled device and see their “little blue dot” location right on the map. They can pull up your map to find your recommendations to places right around where they are – when they move, their blue dot moves on your map!
Map style, colors, fonts, and background are completely customizable
For group trips and vacations, this is an excellent visual to add to your printed itinerary. You can literally see where you are and where you need to be, and include places that you don’t want to forget to visit!
For special celebrations, when choosing locations for your map, consider your favorite restaurants, coffee shops, purveyors of ‘adult beverages’ and stores, as well as museums, walking and hiking routes, music venues, tourist stops, places of worship, and any places which hold special memories that you want to share. Also consider the logistics of of organized event locations & parking/shuttles.
A high-resolution printable version of your map is also included with this package, which you can print as a display poster, include in welcome bags or printed event packets, or custom print on gift items.

A note about technology: In order to see your location on your geo-referenced PDF, you will need an app. My recommendation, with which I am not affiliated, is the Avenza Maps app, which you can use for free (see the app for details). I include instructions for getting your map into the app, which is quite easy. You are welcome to chose a different app that displays geo-referenced PDFs. Please note that if your celebratory location is in an area of the world where phones cannot use their built-in GPS technology, your location will not appear on the map.
The nitty gritty: A map purchase does not include any editable files such as Illustrator, ArcGIS maps, or shapefiles. It does not include any physical prints or items, although you may use the high-resolution PDF to make your own prints. Due to the custom nature of this service, there will be no refunds or returns. Maps are for personal use only and should not be used for navigation. Additional proofs or changes beyond the three included in this package will incur additional fees.
