FAQ

  • What are the maps made out of?
    Each map is made from two boards of Baltic birch wood.

  • What are the blue and green colors?
    Parts of the map that represent water features (ocean, sea, lake, river, pond, etc.) are dyed with a blue ink. Parts that represent "greenspace" (parks, forests, meadows, etc.) or areas of significant cultural or historical interest (museum grounds, historical sites, ruins, national malls, promenades, esplanades, etc.) are dyed with a green ink.

  • What are the dimensions of the maps?
    Landscape: 19.5” x 11.5” and 0.375” thick (49.5 cm x 29.2 cm and 0.95 cm thick)

    Portrait: 11.5” x 16.5” and 0.375” thick

    * Please note: Not all formats are available for all maps.

  • Where are the maps made?
    The maps are made and shipped from our workshop in Philadelphia, USA.
    Feel free to tune in to our Instagram (@woodscapemaps), we frequently post stories on there of the mapmaking process— you may see yours being made!

  • Standard orders: How long will it take to get my wooden map?
    All maps are made to order, we do not keep a stock. It typically takes 3-6 days from order placement to map at your doorstep.

  • Custom orders: How long will it take to get my custom location wooden map?

    Custom maps require additional digital production work, and as such, take a bit more time to make than our standard maps. Expect map in hand 7-14 days after you’ve confirmed a proof.

  • How much is shipping? Do you ship to outside the US?
    Priority Mail via USPS (2-3 days) is always free to destinations within the United States. Faster shipping options are available for an additional cost.
    We do ship to outside the US, however additional shipping costs will apply.

  • Can the wooden maps be hung?
    Yes, the maps are light enough to be hung by either the string & holes method or with a standard sawtooth bracket installed on the back. You have a choice of either of these two hanging methods.

  • This map is missing something, or this area doesn't appear to be right.
    While we make every attempt to keep our maps as accurate as possible, some compromises must be made. Due to the limitations of lasers and the material density of wood, it is not always possible to keep every geographic feature perfectly represented. Sometimes, simplifications are made to specific areas in some maps that if left unaddressed, would’ve resulted in easily breakable or fragile pieces. For example, many of the piers in Lower Manhattan, NYC along the Hudson River are removed, otherwise this would result in numerous tiny pieces of wood that would certainly break off at some point in the assembly or shipping process.

  • Will my wooden map be as shown in the pics?
    For the most part, yes, your map will look just like the pictures.
    But because each map is made by hand, and because each piece of wood is unique, you can expect small variations. We make every effort possible to select only the highest quality wood, though your map may contain small wood knots or streaks. You may also notice a small amount of brown discoloration on parts of your map. This is charring caused when the laser cuts the wood. Our sanding process removes the majority of the charring, however your map may still contain some.
