Beautiful Keepsake


This pillow exceeded my expectations! It has legible writing with crisp colors. The heart marker was placed perfectly on our unique spot. The workmanship is stunning. I can’t say enough. It’s absolutely perfect! Heather went above and beyond to get it to us, as this was a very special gift. The Grommet and Not For Navigation are wonderful businesses to work with. Thank you!More > < Less


Love these pillows


The company was great to work with when I ordered these pillows. They worked with me to make sure I was happy with the position of the map in the area I was looking for and if I wasn't they changed the map for me. I recommend these pillows. My husband a mariner loved them. They were a gift for him. They are a good size and fell good and well made.More > < Less


Clever and fun


This is a clever and fun idea. I bought one for someone who is considering a move and they love it! Great gift!


Very nice


Got this to give as a wedding present for a destination wedding. It turned out beautiful and I love that it has meaning behind it.


Gorgeous Keepsake


Ordered four of these (one for each of my children) with map of our lake and a different personalized marker for each of them at our house address. They did a beautiful job. Immediate response, courteous communication, prompt shipment. The fabric is of excellent quality and the workmanship superb. I know these will be treasured for generations. Choose the large, it’s worth every penny!More > < Less

About Not for Navigation

Your Happy Place

Everyone has a place they hold near and dear to their heart, and Not for Navigation turns that location into a customized, lasting memento.

Founder Heather Jernegan paired her printing background with a love of her favorite place—the New England coast—to start this collection of charming, map-printed textiles.

Heather takes whatever place you give her—whether it’s a specific street address or a broader coastline, neighborhood, or island—and then will select a nautical chart or topographical map that showcases that area beautifully. Not for Navigation will send the image to you for approval, then silkscreen it to enhance its details and colors.

Feature the place you spent summers as a child, or a honeymoon destination, or a birthplace—the choice is completely yours. Or you could turn a memorable location into a meaningful gift, like a customized pillow.

Each piece from Not for Navigation is as beautiful as it is personal. It’s worth creating a keepsake for any place that is so special.
