What are people saying about Lifemaps?

 

 

How Much Does a Custom Lifemap Cost?

A Custom Lifemap is priced $450, which includes 10 places printed on an 11×14 photo print. Each additional 10 places costs an additional $450. (Please keep in mind that it is quite labour-intensive to “stitch” the locations together.  As the number of map places increase, the maps complexity increases dramatically.)

 

What Andrew needs to make your map…

10 places of significance – please include a single address or point of interest to act as a focal point of that area. For example:  Roncesvalles Village, Toronto.  (Apt. at 300 Roncesvalles Ave.)  also – Fantail Cafe, Revue Cinema, Gate 403, The Local. Please list your 10 places in ORDER OF IMPORTANCE Thanks.  – email them to me at:  ac.oo1493401427hay@p1493401427amefi1493401427l1493401427 or let’s chat 416-532-0210 – cheers.

Imagine all the places that matter to you or someone you love – the neighborhood where you grew up, the town where you went to university, the trip you took when you met your spouse, where your kids were born – imagine all these places magically sewn together into a single map – a map of your’s or someone else’s life.

The places can be points of interest, like the building where you work or the monument you visited in Italy.  The places can be urban like the neighborhood in Beijing where you studied for a semester or rural like the lake you swam in as a kid.  A Lifemap records your’s or someone’s life history in detail, combining major life events and locations into a cartographic celebration featuring your or a loved ones personal milestones.

A Lifemap can celebrate a couple’s lifetime together – highlighting their individual paths and their shared experiences on a single map.  Locations can feature each person’s individual origins and places they have visited or lived together. Real-world points of interest can include the exact spot they met or the places they work and live. Conceptual points of interest can include birth years of children or parents or dates of important events or interests and hobbies.

Every creation is completely original. That alone is astonishing. I’ve spent hours staring at mine and everyone who visits my place comments on it. It’s the ultimate conversation piece that spurs wonderful travel memories with my friends and family. I plan on getting one in a few years to include the places I’ll have been by then. This is the ultimate scrapbook for anyone with a love for travel. I will treasure my Lifemap for the rest of my life.

I received my Lifemap for Christmas and I just wanted to express my gratitude and awe. Your work is truly compelling and rare. The art of the map is evident, and yet it denotes a true map form – with all of the familiar icons and lines – and of course, familiar places. Its like taking something very known and dear to me…. It is unique to me and true to its original form at the same time. Its is just stunning. I’ve actually never received a gift that made me gasp. Very special.

I had a custom Lifemap made of my father’s journey to Canada as a gift for my family to commemorate my father’s life. Andrew merged my father’s journey from his humble beginnings on a farm in Italy to Toronto, Canada and the various places he lived across the city. The map reflected Toronto in the early 60’s complete with the original rail tracks and landmarks as they occurred when my father arrived. The map pulled at heart strings, and will remain a cherished work of art to be handed down to generations to come. Thank-You for creating such a unique way to personalize life’s journeys!

My family got me my own personalized LifeMap for my birthday a few years ago, and it’s amazing. It’s got all my favourite concert venues, record stores, cities where I have lived/worked, and a whole bunch of other awesomeness. The most fun (for me, anyway), is just staring at it and finding a new item. Makes me smile every day when I see it.
