MAPS FOR SALE!

PRE-ORDER MAPS GO ON SALE TODAY

In an effort to raise money to support the blog, I’m selling papercut and woodcut maps of Philadelphia. All of these maps are based off of a 3’x4′ Philly map that I handcut during a brief stint of insanity. In an effort to make these cuts as authentic as possible, I learned how to use the lasercutter at NextFab and will be creating them all myself.

I’m taking pre-orders in order to raise the funds needed for materials and laser time. I can also only create a limited number between now and December 20, which is the date all cuts will be shipped by (in time for the holidays).

Custom cuts are created based off of an address provided by the buyer. An icon, such as a heart, can be cut at that location. Neighborhood cuts are currently available for Center City, Fishtown and South Philly. All maps can be purchased via Etsy

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to email me at phillylovenotes@gmail.com
