MapYourTravels.com, a Jessen Media Company, is a creative collaborative of an eclectic group of people who happen to love maps and travel!
The story goes like this: So, there we were. Looking for new product ideas and WHAM - one of our members remembered a map he used as a kid to track the places he and his family had been. Raise your hand out there if you had one of these in your childhood home!
So, we decided to make a 'grown up' version. We designed a beautiful map, figured out how to mount it so you can use pins to mark your travels, created a really fun legend to encourage friends and neighbors to ask about your travels. (Let's be honest, people who love to travel - love to share their adventures even more!) Then we framed it in a beautiful mahogany stained wood and added the final jewel to the crown - a personalized crest.
Based in St. Louis Park, Minnesota (just outside Minneapolis) we have sold thousands of World and U.S. maps and this year we added our specialty/hobby series for those of you who camp, golf or love Baseball. So much fun and such a unique gift. We hope you find just the right map for your family or that special person you are shopping for. If not, let us know and maybe it's on our list!
Oh, and one more thing, just so you know - a note about our SHARE Program: Our SHARE program is designed to honor organizations whose mission is to help others. We donate a percentage of our profits to organizations that have been hand selected by our very own staff members. Sometimes it is a local fund raiser for a family, a local auction or the Breast Cancer 3 Day walk. We provide ongoing support to Feed My Starving Children whose mission keeps children alive in 3rd World countries and Open Arms of MN feeding body, mind and soul of people with HIV and other illnesses here and in South Africa. Back at home we contribute to Simpson Housing Services which serves the homeless population right here in the Twin Cities.
We believe in the back to basics philosophy - say please, say thank you, and remember to SHARE.
