If you both come from different parts of the country, then our CUSTOM LOVE MAP guest book will tell your unique love story. It features your home states, done in a beautiful faux metallic effect, overlapping and marked with a heart over an intersection of your cities. The artwork will be completely customized with your choice of states (or countries), cities, and colors.
Your guests sign around the artwork, creating a truly unique keepsake art piece to display in your home for years to come! Available on paper, canvas, or digitally, framed or unframed. All details are explained below ↓, but if you have any questions, please use the “Ask a Question” button (next to the price), and I’ll get right back to you! Created with ♥ in the USA.
📣 BONUS! Once you purchase a map item from my shop, you can have the illustration featured on any other Jade Forest Design item, with NO additional illustration fee!

Browse GUEST BOOKS:
➤ PAPER ➤ Printed on heavyweight matte paper using archival-quality inks. Needs to be framed to display.
➤ CANVAS ➤ Printed on smooth, clay-coated canvas, and gallery-wrapped over a 3/4" deep wood frame. No need to frame, hardware included. Recommended for outdoor display, makes a lovely keepsake.
EMAIL option ➜ Personalized, high-resolution, printer-ready (printable) files via email
✚ Add a maple wood frame using the drop-down menus when placing your order. Choose from Gold, Rose Gold, Silver, Gray, Rustic White, Natural, Walnut, Espresso, or Black.
➤ FRAMES for PAPER are solid wood, and include the glass and hardware. These are 1" wide and 7/8" deep. All colors except black are beveled. For guest books, you’d want to have the print in the frame at your event, but take out the front glass piece until after it's signed.
➤ FLOATER FRAMES for CANVAS are solid wood, and include the hardware. There is NO GLASS. These are 3/8" wide and 1 1/4" deep.
EASELS & PENS:
✚ ADD AN EASEL ➜ Lightweight, folding tripod easels are available in a number of colors to match your event decor perfectly (Natural Wood, painted White, Silver, Gold, or Rose Gold), and two sizes (25" table-top easel, or 65" floor-stand easel). Order here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/539577816/wood-easel
PENS ➜ I recommend providing your guests with ARCHIVAL-quality pens (such as Sakura/Micron). You should be able to find those at a craft store such as Michael’s, or on Amazon. I do not recommend Sharpies, or any other non-archival pens, as they may fade over time. Please keep in mind that you’ll need a light-colored and/or metallic pen if your signature spots are dark.

METALLICS ➜ My designs do NOT use metallic inks or foil. Anytime you see a metallic on an item within the shop, you're looking at a digital faux metallic image of the texture, highlights & shadows. When printed, this creates lovely results, at a fraction of the cost of foil, or metallic ink. An upgrade to foil is available for invitations (not signs), please inquire for pricing.

There's no need for everyone to be together in the photo. Separate photos for each person are just fine. A high-quality, forward-facing photo of each person's face is what's most important for a great likeness. Learn more here: https://tinyurl.com/HowToPickPhotos
Most items in our shop have the option to choose a "printable", or "email file only", if you prefer to print locally. While we highly recommend the professional printing services offered via the shop, choosing this option means you'll receive personalized, high-resolution, printer-ready (printable) files via email. Please see "CURRENT TIMING" above for how soon to expect the emailed designs.
Use coupon code PRINTABLEONLY to remove shipping costs from printable orders at checkout. Choosing the printable, and printing locally, is often the quickest, and most affordable option for International customers. International shipping is 2–5 weeks, depending on customs.
Here are suggested sizes:
➤ 11” x 14” → for up to 50 guests
➤ 16” x 20” → for between 50 and 100 guests
➤ 18” x 24” → for between 100 and 150 guests
➤ 24" x 36" → for between 150 and 250 guests
The size is really a matter of personal preference, and depends on a few things. For guestbooks, consider whether you expect guests to include a message, as opposed to just a signature etc. For seating charts, consider how far guests will be standing to read them.
When in doubt, we always suggest going LARGER, rather than smaller.
