Maps, they can be useful. They can help your guests find their way to your wedding. They can also be decorative and break up otherwise what might be a mass of text. While showing you have had a custom map done can be a feather in your invitations proverbial cap. Even if in the age of Sat Navs, phone apps and online maps they’re probably not as important as they used to be I still think it’s a good thing when an invitation can be reasonably self-contained and give a guest reading it a fair idea of what and where they’re be invited.
At Artemis Stationery three of our bespoke invitation types come with maps included in the price. These are the Booklet, Trifold and Bifold Invitations and 90% of these invitations I design include them. You can also add maps to other invitation types, normally for free if it’s an evening invitation and there already has been a map done for a day invitation or if not there is a small fee.
The maps don’t tend to show every road in the area but show the main roads and the important roads (not always the same thing) as well as landmarks and features. I try and make sure that nearby motorway junctions are either shown or indicated and most importantly I make sure they fit in with the design of the invitation.
If you’ve received samples of any of the Booklet, Trifold or Bifold invitations you’re probably familiar with the sample map. It’s based on a map I did for a friend’s wedding. It was at Sherborne Castle but they had lots of guests staying in the town so the map had to show the relationship between the Castle and locations in the town. This post has some other maps that have been done over the years.
