WE MAKE MAPS

The reasons people are interested in maps are varied and as numerous as maps themselves.  The Map Shop is a small but passionate group of geographers, cartographers, designers, and travelers based in Charlotte, NC.  We are glad you found us!

THe Mapshop Mission

EXPLORE WITH US

ACTIVATE YOUR CURIOSITY

Hike a meandering trail in a vast national park, navigate our country’s twisting network of waterways, or plan a tour of your city’s hottest local breweries. No matter what your interests are, our map-making utilizes the latest technology to empower globetrotters to explore the world around us. 

EXPRESS WITH US

FOSTER YOUR CREATIVITY

The stories of our experiences  are meant to be shared. Displaying maps of the places important to you are a beautiful and unique way of sharing our personal stories on our walls. Celebrate your family’s heritage, memorialize your favorite beach, or rep your hometown with a map. Map the moments from your life and truly express yourself in your space.

ENGAGE WITH US

CREATE COMMUNITY

Maps are both intellectually and emotionally evocative. Our geographic and cultural horizons get expanded when you understand the relationship of yourself to the space around you. When you engage with maps you make new connections with people, new connections with places, and even new connections within the cells of your brain. 

When you engage with a map you open yourself up to experience and understand more fully that big ‘ole universe around us. 

Our Team

Andy
Operations Manager

He’s been here since almost the beginning (20 years!). Andy is our resident map encyclopedia with all answers you need!

AJ
Shipping Specialist

They’re as wicked with a tape machine as a guitar. AJ definitely knows how to keep everyone in good spirits…even when its 90 degrees in the back!

Danny
Raised Relief Production

He makes our raised relief maps and is trying to get people to call them “4-D” maps.  Claiming the fourth “D” is for Danny. So far nobody is willing to do so unironically.

Ethan
Master Cartographer

Eat. Sleep. Map.

Katy

Matt
Warehouse Manager

I’m not nearly as cool as the tattoos make me look. But I am as skinny as my tight pants make me look.

Mike
Production + Fulfilment

You always know when Mike enters the room! He has a great smile and personality! Mike wrote this.

Sarah

People say that I have a small zoo at home…and with 13 and counting…they might be right!
