“I was looking for a gift for a man who has everything – my husband. I have been married to this wonderful, self-made successful businessman from the small town of Laramie, Wyoming, for 25 happy years. He served our country in the Air Force, was accepted into Harvard, and traveled the world as an international entrepreneur. However, he would always turn his eyes back upon the small town of Laramie, Wyoming. He loves Laramie with its small-town values.
While looking for a gift for him I stumbled upon the website of VintageCityMaps.com. Aha! They have a map of the city Laramie in 1889! It was a perfect gift for my husband. I ordered it. I began to panic when the print seemed to be stuck in transit. The days to my anniversary started to dwindle. I sent an email to Vintage City Maps asking that they check on the status of the order. I heard back from the company immediately. They were also concerned about the status of the shipment. They sent another map to me using 2-day shipping at no charge. They saved the day! The second map came in time for a delighted husband on our anniversary. It was perfectly packaged with no bends or wrinkles. He loved the map, and I did too! As luck would have it, the first map arrived the next day! Vintage City Maps sent a pre-paid label to return the 2nd map; again, no charge to me.
So, in summary of a long tale, Vintage City Maps has a wonderful product that is of great quality and so individualized in its connection of people to their roots. But, when one adds the quality of product to the excellence of service, the result is perfection! Great company, beautiful product, and superb service; what more could one want? I now have a go-to gift for family and friends.”

“We are so thankful that we came across your webpage and was able to purchase a historic print of our hometown. We purchased to display in our physical therapy office in Middletown, DE. It really captures the rapid development in our area and will be a discussion piece for years to come. The purchase included fast shipping and was carefully packaged. When we unrolled the map we were thoroughly impressed with the quality and detail. We look forward to purchasing additional maps in the future. Thanks again.”

“I had the pleasure of having received two Vintage City Maps as gifts from a very dear friend. One is of San Francisco and the other is of San Jose. Both are beautifully done and have become family heirlooms. They each hold a special place in my heart; San Francisco because it is the city of my birth and San Jose because it is the place I spent most of my childhood, up through age 36. I had them beautifully framed and have them displayed in my Bend, Oregon office. I have received many compliments on both maps. If you are ever looking for one of those special types of gifts, or would just like to add a wonderful conversation piece to your home, I would encourage you to get one…or two.”

“Thank you for the beautiful map of Middletown, DE. I purchased it as a gift for my husband for his office. He could not be happier and I know I will catch him sitting there staring at it throughout the day. We have spent numerous hours comparing it to how the town looks today. It is amazing how many building are there after over 130 years. My husband often says, the best way to know what a company stands for is to have a problem. The first map you sent was damaged during transit. After contacting you, a replacement was here a couple days later. No questions asked. Although it was not your fault, your desire to make a customer happy must be commended. Your company is the type from which we like to buy. Thank you very much.”

“I was fortunate to receive a map of my hometown, Corning, New York from Vintage City Maps. I donated it to a local historical society for display. What a great gift idea. Check out their FB page. Consider this unique idea for gifting, or find your hometown map and frame it for yourself, or donate it!”
– Lisa Smith, Corning, New York
“I love my Denver map! Not only does it show the streets, it shows so many important buildings, many of which still stand today. Guests always peek at it and several have suggested I put it on a different wall so they view it closer up. This was a great gift for me to receive and has been a perfect gift for others.”
-Mary Buckley, Denver, Colorado
“The map I received (size of 24″ x 30″) of Wiscasset, Maine is a perfect fit for most any wall and the color reproduction is very nice. This is a very smart decor piece for any room when mounting in a simple black frame. The resolution and print quality are good enough that even small details and text can be seen and read. The map also shipped in a sturdy tube so it survived the journey through the postal system intact. Overall I’m very impressed and would recommend these maps to anyone without hesitation!”
– Lance Tlumac, Grey, Maine
“I love my map of Durham, NC! It has made a great addition to my living room in a new city I now call my home. I get a lot of compliments on the uniqueness of the map.”
– Rachel Ransleben, Durham, North Carolina
“I absolutely LOVE the map!!! Thank you again for all of your help. I’m hoping to hang it this week!”
– Nicole Kikosicki, Guilford, Connecticut
I’d just like to let you know how very happy I am with a map of Spencer, Mass that I ordered from your website. I gave it as a gift to my son for his birthday, and he loves it.
Thank you so much!
