Baltimore looked great!!

This map was purchased as a gift and the recipients were mesmerized by the layout off the city they loved for a long time. Identifying and pointing out their personal points of interest was a highlight.

Great product!


Great piece

Bought the Miami version for my boyfriends birthday. He really liked it and thought I paid way more than I actually did. Shipping was fast! Very satisfied.


Great details

The laser cut map is beautifully finished. Nice depth to the piece. I bought the city map of Philly for my husband. He was easily able to find our house on the map. Very nicely detailed.

Bought it for my boyfriend for his birthday. He grew up in Buffalo. He loved it. Found his streets right away! Thanks


Beautiful piece of art!

My map of Chicago just arrived yesterday (only a few days after placing the order) and it is GORGEOUS! I bought it for a Christmas gift and it's going to be difficult to hold on to. The frame is beautiful and the map detailing is spectacular. It is such a unique map/piece of art. It will look great on any wall.


Well done!

Very light weight, which surprised me. Well packaged and the map is accurate. I bought it for my adult stepson (New Orleans map) who loves it. Now ALL of my adult step-kids are requesting one.

I ordered this as a Christmas gift and had a bit of a scare getting it on time. It was ordered on Dec 9. The creator of the cut maps DOES say to allow an extra week for production and shipment, but Dec 12 I received an email from Grommet saying it had been shipped. When I had not received the package by Dec 20 I checked the tracking number and it said that the delivery slip had been issued but product pickup had not been arranged yet. I contacted Grommet to see what was happening. They followed up quickly and I DID receive the package on Dec 23. This was totally in line with the timetable offered by the company producing the product. The confusion was created by the automated email sent by the Grommet saying the package had been shipped. Just a heads-up for when you order.

These look a lot better in the website photographs than they do in person. The frame is very high quality, but the street maps are just lines of plastic not a lovely etching. They aren't cheap but they look kinda cheap. You'll have a hard time recognizing your own city map. I was disappointed and returned mine.

The Cut Maps Story

Minimalist art that maps out your favorite place. Made in the USA.

Urban Lace

Like urban lace, Cut Maps showcase the unique patterns formed by city streets, parks, landmarks, and natural boundaries.

As a mechanical engineer, Dan Linden explores the intersection between technology and art in his laser cut wall art and other accessories.

His foray into this form of location honoring was personal—he did a tracing of his former neighborhood in Columbus, Ohio, for a local fair. The response was overwhelmingly positive—people started requesting minimalist renditions of their own hometowns. Since then, Dan’s maps have dressed up walls and protected phones with all your
favorite locations.

His designs now trot the globe with over 40 cities represented. To residents, the streets and neighborhoods don’t need any labels. You can instantly recognize addresses and stomping grounds. To the unfamiliar, the geographic details are an invitation to explore new territories.

We find Dan’s work a powerful channeling of place. Just like a traditional map, Cut Maps remind you of cities you’ve called home and feed your wanderlust.
