Custom MapsEl's Cards
We are pleased to offer our custom hand drawn map service to our wedding invitation customers as an exclusive additional piece to your wedding suite. Because of the popularity of the maps with our couples, we are no longer offering our special maps as an a la carte item for people who are ordering their invitations elsewhere.
Custom maps typically start at $1000-and are done at my hourly rate of $100 per hour. I always tell my clients to allow a minimum of 10 hours for map creation. We cannot guarantee how long the map will take, so bear in mind that this is an estimate. Map prints start at $3 apiece and are sized roughly 5" x 6.5". These map prints would accompany an invitation order as part of your 4 piece suite, and a minimum number of invitations must be ordered.
If you are interested in having the maps for welcome bags or "day of" wedding paper goods, we take on a small number of projects like this, and there is a minimum purchase of $1200 of other paper goods (menus, programs, escort cards, and the like).
Please note: Due to copyright laws and the need to protect our work, we do not permit our designs to be printed outside of the El's Cards studio, and will never give permission for this to be done. Thank you for understanding.
If this general pricing sounds good to you you, please be in touch to schedule a time to talk about your stationery and map. We only take on a few of these projects per year, so it is advised to reach out nice and early. We also have many beautiful maps in our existing collection which people often enjoy within their wedding suite.
If you are not ordering invitations from El's Cards, but are interested in having a map created just for you, you should consider one of our hand painted seating charts for your wedding reception. We have done many map seating charts and they are unique to the couple and always a super special addition to the wedding decor. This is a work of art that you will enjoy in your home for your lifetime together!
