How To Make a Where Me Met Map in Only a Few Minutes

Updated On:

In this tutorial, we show how you can create your very own Where We Met Map of a memorable location, quickly and easily. 

Where is a Where We Met Map?

A Where We Met Map is exactly what it says - a map art print that illustrates the place where you met a loved one or significant other. So whether you ran into each other in the middle of your hometown or met them when you were on vacation, you can turn that special place into a print the two of you can cherish forever.

Making a Where We Met Map is as easy as pie. All you need is the special location you want to save (and an internet connection, of course!)

Step 1 - Choose your Size, Framing Option, and Style

These are the first options you’ll see when using our map builder.

We offer a range of sizes and framing options to suit you or your loved one’s décor. Whether you want a small piece to hang in your home office or a statement print for your bedroom, choose between three stunning sizes.

12” x 16”
18” x 24”
24” x 32”

We also offer two different frame options and four unique map styles; find a style that suits your living space.

Step 2 - Enter Your Location

Your special place could be anywhere, from your favorite city to the town you grew up in. Capture the bustling areas of New York City or the cobblestone streets of Paris. All you have to do is type it in our search box, and we’ll find it for you.

Searching for your location will bring up our map preview:

Step 3 - Choose Your Map Design and Pin

We offer four different map designs and pins to choose from. Opt for a light color or something dark and daring to stand out. Choose the pin that speaks to you, or decide against a pin entirely - the choice is yours!

Step 4 - Personalize Your Map

Printed Memories gives you the option of adding both large text and small text to your Where We Met Map.

Add you or your loved one’s names, a special date, a touching quote or an inside joke, or anything else you can think of to make this map truly your own.

So whether you’re creating a unique anniversary gift or a special map for a milestone birthday, make your loved one feel extra special with this personal touch.

Step 5 - Add Your Map To Your Cart

Now you’ve finished creating your map, you can add it to your cart. Make sure to double-check everything is correct on your map - for example, the color or spelling errors. Once it goes to production, you won’t be able to edit it.

Wait - There’s More!

Here are a few things you should know before turning your memories into something special.
