The Vintage Nautical Map Maker

Make Amazing Map Designs in Minutes!

As a child did you burn the edges of tea-soaked paper to make your own 'genuine' treasure maps?

Do you love the romance and adventure of tales of corsairs on the high seas?

Are your eyes drawn to the hand-drawn lines and detailed imagery of antique maps?

If so, this is the product for you! Whether its for a pirate-themed project, an eye-catching event flyer, intricately patterned soft furnishings or an evocative brand design, you can easily bring them to life with this one-stop map creator toolkit. The Artifex Forge has spent many happy hours poring over antique maps on your behalf to bring this varied and authentic material together.

See how easy it is to use in the video tutorial - https://vimeo.com/228046385
