Customize and personalize a HappyPlaceArt Map:
Have you spotted a map you kind-of-love but it needs a tweak to make it perfect?

If we haven't already communicated and discussed your request, please add details of your request e.g.. wording, color choices, motif style to the "NOTE-TO-SELLER" section at checkout. Alternatively send an Etsy conversation at the time of purchase.


It's so easy to make your map unique and personalised. See the attached listing PHOTO for some ideas.
There's a wide range of TEXT fonts to choose from. Sometimes mixing 2 fonts on the same image works well too.

-> Pop you color choices in the notes section at checkout. See 3rd listing photo.
-> 3-7 colors usually works well.
-> Check out the 3rd listing photo to compare the BLENDED and WATERCOLOR styles.

There are 15 styles to choose from. Just add which style number and any names/ wording in the notes section at checkout.

Choose a style of compass to add to your map. It will be co-ordinated with the colors in your map.

Add HEARTs or another icon to special spots on the map. It might be a special holiday destination... the place where your eyes met across a crowded postoffice :) ... or your childhood family home...

DASHED lines can be added which can be made loopy of even heart-shaped on request.

RUSH PRINT PROCESSING - This can be applied to reduce print processing times from 5-7 business days down to 2-3 business days.

- This listing is to be added to your cart along with the artwork you would like to modify.

- If you would like 2 types of personalisation (such as HEARTS plus TEXT), you can add the listing to the cart, click the "keep shopping" button and add the listing again with a second personalisation request.

- At checkout, the "Optional Note to Seller" is a great place to add your customisation requests, including fonts, locations for hearts, colour swatch numbers etc. Alternatively, just message me through Etsy messages.

- A proof will be sent through your ETSY INBOX within the PROOF TURNAROUND timeframe which can be found in the Shop Announcement section - and usually much faster.

- Your purchase includes an initial proof and if necessary 2 minor changes and additional proofs. Further changes may incur additional fees.

I am very flexible and easy to work with, so please don't hesitate to message me if you have any particular queries about your personalised artwork ideas.


Items with a customisation or personalisation element usually require a proof to be created and approved. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any queries you may have about the process or the product. However, payment may be requested BEFORE the creation of your proof due to the time invested in the design and creation process.

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.

Would buy from again!!! Great Customer Service!

My son and daughter in-law loved their print! One of our wedding gifts was the print and a check with a request to use it for a trip in the next year and “pin it” to show us where they are going. Highly recommend this seller!

LOVE the recommendations you made!

It is so beautiful! It came very securely packaged to keep the map safe, and it looks stunning on my wall. It's even better than I imagined!
