What Map Did I Go For?
I chose the Night Sky Star Map 50x70cm print, because I instantly fell in love with the all-black design. It looks sleek, and really makes the constellation map stand out. Most importantly, it goes with my room decor. This is the type of piece that I envisioned above my bed, as I can wake up and see it first thing in the morning. It’s always nice to wake up to a positive memory, to get your day started right!
What Did I Love About The GreaterSkies Constellation Star Map?
The print is such a high quality! I remember when I first unboxed the map, and I just sat staring at it for ages. It’s absolutely stunning, and is a piece of art in itself.
I’m also a sucker for anything sentimental, so being able to pinpoint a time and place where something important happened, really takes me back to the moment all over again. I actually picked me and my boyfriend’s first date, where we met in Piccadilly Gardens in Manchester.
Was the Process to Create a Map an Easy One?
Yes, 100%! All you have to do is enter the special date, the time the event took place, and the address (you can be more specific by entering coordinates). You then finalise your design, and send it off to GreaterSkies.
You can either get a high-quality download file, so you can send it off for printing yourself. OR, you can get the company to print it for you, and even add a frame, which I highly recommend. This is because the frame makes the design look seamless, and the photographic paper used is of top quality, which you can’t always guarantee when using an external company. It may cost extra, but the cost is worth it when you see how beautiful the Star Map is in person, and no pictures can justify it, until you see it yourself. The paper is also UV-resistant, so even though the map is exposed to sunlight, the colours won’t fade as time goes on.
What Occasions Would I Recommend This Star Map For?
- Wedding Gifts (the date can be set in the future)
- Wedding Anniversary, or anniversaries in general
- Mother’s Day Gift
- Father’s Day Gift
- Housewarming Gift
- Constellation Enthusiasts
- Baby Shower Gift
