Lake Art

Customized Lake Maps

Great lakes

These maps aren’t just made for navigating. They are custom-made for commemorating that special lake in your life.

The perfect keepsake for decorating your home, cabin, or cottage, Lake Art wooden wall maps feature intricate details of more than 4,000 lakes including shorelines, two colors, and up to eight depth dimensions. Who would’ve thought bathymetry (the study of the depths and shapes of underwater terrain) could be so
beautiful.

The laser-cut maps also depict surrounding towns and major roads giving your lake a sense of place and belonging. Each piece is handcrafted from scratch and made to order in Harbor Springs, Michigan. Lake Art leaves no lake unfinished—the framing is exquisite. And your lake can even be turned into a cribbage board.

    @Pamela Hi Pamela, Aaron from The Grommet here. Unfortunately, we are not accepting any orders for Lakes that are not on the list at this time.

    Returns are only allowed if the map has been damaged during shipping.

    Do you locate the maps for lakes that are not on your list or do I need to supply you with that? Can you frame the map in a different color - other than the light oak as pictured?

    As per the frame, Lake Art only features light oak.

    Hi Yvette,

    The Gift Message process can be a bit tricky as you need to click the checkbox, "Check this checkbox if you want to add gift messages" on Step 3 of the Checkout process, in order to input message details.

    Once you click, a dropdown menu opens up where you can input the information.

    I've gone ahead and added your lake information so you should be all set.

    @Aaron Hi Aaron, when i read this customers question, they seem to be clearly asking the amount of information that they can see on a map that is already on the list (and therefore not a custom map.) Your answer seems to be in response to a question about a custom map, which this is not. Also, when i look down the questions and answers that i see under this product, i also noticed that you and Ashley gave different price quotes for the set up price for a custom map. You quoted $30 and Ashley quoted $25. Both of these quotes were onthe same day, so it couldn't be a price change and that they were both correct. I really don't wish to be negative. The answers here seem to be friendly and they also seem to be given quickly, which is very nice, but i worry about what kind of response i will get if i need information. This is my first time on this site and this is the first item i have looked at and in just this little short amount of space there seems to be an answer given without taking time to look at what the question really was (i have had this happen on other sites and it can be so frustrating) and there has been 2 conflicting fee quotes given on the same day for the same set up fee, so there must be incorrect information being given out. I really like the uniqueness of your site and i really dont want these types of things to happen to me when i'm asking questions, so i thought i'd bring attention to what seems to be happening.

    @Katie - The price quotes are correct. To customize an existing map it is $25. And to answer Erin's question .. If you'd like to see a proof before placing your order please contact The Grommet and they will pass the request along to us.

    Your designs look great. But I wonder what, besides 3D lake depth feature and roads around it, can you include to customize your map even more. If you do that, please give examples.

  • Ashley
    Ashley – Special Guest
    7/16/2013 3:13 PM

    @Irina There is a 1-time $25 set up fee for customization. The level of customization your map will have is up to you! Most people have us mark their lake homes and add their family name to the artwork. Others have us etch a favorite song lyric or logo into their piece. Once you place your order and we discuss what you'd like to add to the artwork, you'll receive a proof via email.

  • Irina

    7/17/2013 2:38 AM

    @Ashley An extra fee is fine. I'm more interested in how far you can go design wise. For example, if you are marking the place of our lake house, will it be just a note with our family name or possibly some drawings involved? Another example, if there is an ancient Indian cemetery on the lake, and we'd like it to be marked not only with words, but with drawings, how involved into art drawings can you get? Same goes for interesting parks and even community boat ramps.

  • Ashley

    @Irina - We could do some line drawings for you but we would need you to provide us with some sort of source file to work from. Also, the order would need to be placed via The Grommet before we start working on the artwork. You'd need to order the 16x20 or larger in order to have enough room to etch the line drawings. If you'd like to see an example please send a request to The Grommet asking to see our "Smith Mountain Lake Cottage Gate custom file". What lake are you interested in?

  • Irina

    @Ashley Thank you for such a detailed answer. It's Lake Tawakoni in TX. I can do historical research myself, and then maybe we could discuss what extras can be done.

  • Ashley

    7/18/2013 3:00 PM

    @Irina - We have Lake Tawakoni on file. Your next step is to decide how exactly you'd like to customize the file. If you'd like to see a proof to work from please submit a proof request through The Grommet.

    I would like a conversation with the vendor, but there is no email or method by which to contact them. I am very interested in a map of Lake Tahoe, CA, but I want to see a proof , or representation of the lake before I spend $3 to $5 hundred dollars. How do I accomplish this without committing to the purchase first?

    Can we do Canadian lakes? Interested in Honey Harbour specifically or Georgian Bay as a whole.

    Thanks!

    @Ashley Would love to see a proof. I imagine the 1 dimensional maps are $58 but for the nice 3D its starting at $325? What would something like Honey Harbour (or Georgian Bay) run? I need to factor in shipping to Canada through Bonogo International (pretty steep shipping rates).

    7/18/2013 2:04 PM

    @Eric - Please send this request to The Grommet and they will pass it along to us. Once I get it I will send over a proof. You are correct on the pricing. We ship USPS to Canada. Do you have a consolidator we could use? If not, its not a problem. Once you decide on a product I'd be able to give you a shipping estimate. I will also need your address.

    Do you ever do portions of rivers? Everything is always about lakes or beaches! We have a beautiful home on a beautiful, quiet, winding river!

  • Ashley
    Ashley – Special Guest
    7/18/2013 2:00 PM

    @Cathy - We can do some rivers, however, we are limited because our laser can only cut two lines so close together before the wood simply burns up. If you are interested on only a small section of the river and would like to order a large wall art piece or etched product it should be no problem. The small, stained products will rarely accommodate river artwork. Please send a clipping to The Grommet of the area you are interested in.

    I am looking at the Wall Art (Single Layer) starting at $58. When you click on it, it shows there are three different sizes available. When you go to "Choose an Option, there is only the 8 x 10" size available. Are the other two sizes not available??

    @Nelson @Monica - If you are interested in a custom Lake Art product then please include the address of your lake home in the "gift message" section of the checkout along with the Lake Name, County, State and any other information you'd like included on the art. We can add the name of your home/cottage, the family name, mark a favorite fishing spot, etc. etc. A typical example would be to add a home locator icon and then label it with the cottage or family name like "The Smith's" or "Lazy JJ Ranch".

    Ashley,

    My original conversation is no longer appearing in the list below. I had asked for Nepco Lake (Lake Nepco) in Wood County, Wisconsin. I would like the "Wall Art" starting at $325 and would be willing to provide you with the lake map showing depths and whatever other information you need to create this beautiful design! This is for a Christmas present for my husband - we are building a new house on this lake which is just now being developed for residential homes. Please let me know if you can accommodate me. Thank you...

    Hello -- Is it possible to add a special location or marker on the map, like someone's house or a special location (if the address is provided)?

  • Ashley

    8/2/2013 12:26 PM

    @Katie - We sure can! When placing your order select the product with the "Location Marker" option and be sure to include the address along with the lake information in the gift message area. If you'd like your home/location labeled please include that information as well. Once we receive your order we will send a proof for review.

The launch day conversation has ended. Please direct further questions about this Grommet to our Community Experience Team.
