Custom Watercolor Map

Custom Watercolor Map

from 650.00

Custom watercolor maps are such a fun way to show off your favorite city! The intricate icons we'll use will represent your absolute favorite shops, restaurants, parks, museums, and places to explore throughout your city. Since I'll be painting it custom just for you - you can really pick and choose what means the most to you, and what you would like to see preserved in your watercolor map design.

The beautiful thing about custom watercolor maps is that they can and will last throughout the years as family heraldry. You can proudly hang your custom watercolor map in your home, and will have so much fun chatting with family and friends (and generations to come) about why each of the places included are meaningful to you and your beloved city. And as your city grows and evolves, you'll have a memory of it preserved artistically from this point in your life!

Struggling to determine which icons will be best for your custom watercolor map? Here are some of my favorite ideas to suggest!

  • Your favorite places to shop

  • Your favorite places to eat & drink

  • Your favorite areas for outdoor activities (parks, beaches, hiking trails, etc.)

  • Your wedding venue, if applicable

  • Your neighborhood/home

  • Any iconic areas of your city (famous statues, incredible museums, etc.)

This listing includes up to 10 icons/locations. I have found that quantity of icons is a beautiful way to really capture the essence of your city, without overcrowding your map.

Your map print will also come with custom calligraphy of the icon/location names, and the name of your city & state.

*Please note: If you would like to add a custom crest to your map design, you can do so by commissioning a custom watercolor crest.


After thinking through your preferred map ideas, please fill out the questionnaire in this listing to let me know what you would like included in your unique heirloom design! Then, submit your order.

Our design process will then begin with a custom timeline, to help keep both of us on track with our schedule!

I will first sketch your custom crest design, and provide you with the sketched proof to review. You are allotted 3 free rounds of revisions, to ensure that your design is exactly as you envisioned! Every revision after the third round is $250 per revision.

Once we have your sketch perfected, I will begin painting! I will provide you with the painted proof to review and approve! Revisions to the painted piece are limited to color adjustments and minimal icon adjustments. If major icon revisions or map revisions need to be made, an additional design fee will be incurred depending on the intricacy of the revision(s).

*My standard turnaround time for custom paintings is 2 weeks from the start of our design timeline. You can find your estimated delivery timeframe above in the main section of this listing!


While I would love to provide you with your original painting, often times I adjust certain colors digitally to best match your color palette, and add all calligraphy separately in order to calligraph it on a large enough scale for legibility.

Therefore, I love providing high quality 8x10, 11x14, or 16x20 watercolor art prints printed on the finest cotton ultra white paper. It captures the color of the watercolors so beautifully, and looks and feels just like an original piece! Please note the art print size options during checkout.


You will also receive the digital files of your design for unlimited personal use.

Your digital files will be provided in the following file formats: high resolution .JPG, .PNG, and PDF formats with both white and transparent backgrounds for your various potential printing needs.

These design files are for personal use only. The extended license provided when purchasing that option of this listing is only for individuals, couples, and families. It does not permit the use of this design for business use, i.e. as a part of website design. It is not for resale. 


Your art print will be made to order specifically for you! Therefore, please allow between 3-7 business days for production before your art print ships. Shipping will take an additional 1-5 business days, and all prints will be shipped via USPS Priority Mail. 

Please note that while I wish I could simply bring you your package over a cup of chai latte, the package is in the hands of the USPS ladies and gents after I ship it from my studio. SJM is not responsible for any delays, lost packages, or undeliverable packages once the package leaves the SJM Studio. Of course, I will do my best with what I can to help you if there are any problems with shipping! 


Refunds are not provided, as we will work together to revise your sketch and design until you absolutely love it! (Please refer to the Design Process portion of this listing for revision details).

When sharing your custom map on social media or online, please always give credit to Simply Jessica Marie as the artist! If your design is photographed and published online, the publication/post must always link to for credit purposes. 

My social media handle is @simplyjessicamarie - and I would love to be tagged in addition to being mentioned in your comment, so I can most easily see how you are creatively using your design! Please also provide this information to any of your wedding vendors for proper crediting and usage.
