Map Commissions

Get Ready To Map Your World!

Commissioning a map made fun, easy and cheap

Fill out this form and I’ll contact you as soon as I can.

If you want to commission your own, custom-made fantasy map, there are several things to consider, but above all, my map style should match with what you like. A lot is possible, so it’s always worth asking if something can be done to suit your taste. And if commissioning a map is not within your budget, you can also consider buying an off-the-shelf map from the webshop.

5 reasons why people choose FantasyMapShop to make a fantasy map for them:

  1. I have a background in geography and can help you creating a realistic, believable world;
  2. I have made over 300 fantasy maps. I’ve never had someone dislike the result;
  3. I trust you and want you to trust me. I don’t bother with formalities (unless you want to): no contract, no prepayment and I won’t come after you for copyright stuff. All I ask is not to sell the map as a stand-alone product, but you can use it wherever and however you like;
  4. I am flexible and my software is flexible. Throughout the mapmaking process, I’ll send updates on which you can give your feedback so that I can change it before the final version.

Time and details 

It’s entirely up to you how many details you give me ahead of the commission. I love the freedom to help you create your world, but if you already have a lot of things worked out, just send it.

The time it takes to make your map varies and depends on several factors, such as:

  • the scale of the map;
  • the level of detail;
  • the number of ‘extra’s’ you would like to see (building icons, roads, labels, etc.);
  • feedback and edits.

Prices

FantasyMapShop’s price list is not based on the amount of hours spent on making the map, nor on the size of the map, but it is based on how satisfied you are with the result. I am one of those few people who still has faith in the goodness of humanity and that everybody gets what they deserve. Therefore, the amount that you pay, entirely depends on how much you appreciate my work.

From the money I receive for maps, I try to make a simple living in the mountains, away from aIl the hassle and the ‘how life is supposed to be lived‘ opinions. 

I am extremely grateful for any amount you give for a map that I make, so that I can make this introvert’s dream come true.

An amount of your choice

I will keep the copyright of the original work and the right to display the map on my website and social media (resized and compressed). You have the right to display and use the map in whichever way you want, except for selling it as a stand-alone product. If you wish to own the copyright or don’t want me to show the map on my website and social media, let me know before I start working on the map and we can work something out. I will not sell the map to others, unless you give me specific permission to do so.

Payment can be done through PayPal (fantasymapshop@gmail.com) or for Europeans by an IBAN bank transfer.
