For a custom map, just click, drag, and zoom.
It’s easy enough to find stylized posters of Paris, New York, Hong Kong, and other major metropolises. But if you’re looking for the map of a lesser-known city or neighborhood—one that is, quite literally, off the beaten path—you’ll have a hard time finding just the right print.
A new start-up called Mapiful aims to change that. The Sweden-based print-on-demand service allows you to create a customized map poster by searching, zooming, and panning to display any spot in the world. With this simple tool, powered by OpenStreetMap, you just click and drag to set your own borders—whether your special place is Paris, France, or Paris, Texas.
Each map is a flat $60, including worldwide shipping. Stick with the default settings to display the city, country, and coordinates of your chosen location, or switch up the labels for a more personal touch. You can also change the poster layout, orientation, and size—either 18 by 24 inches or 50 by 70 centimeters, both suitable for framing. The final product is rendered in black and white on matte paper.
