Hello! We are Mapply.co 🙂 Based in sunny Edinburgh, United Kingdom.
We design and print stylised maps of Scotland, surrounding areas and locations worldwide.
Unlike other map designers we re-draw maps at range of macro or micro zoom focus levels that means our designs have appropriately scaled features and an appropriate level of detail no matter what size of print we produce. This allows for great looking city, town, or even street level artwork in sizes from A5 (smallest) to A0 (largest). Prints are offered in the most common frame sizes, but custom sizes can also be accommodated on request to fit any frame or wall space.
We match map locations with either minimal or more contrasting colour palettes to create a range of styles including options that fit well with the colour scheme of almost any room.
We are committed to quality which is why we use a 9-colour print process to produce the widest possible colour gamut. This ensures that the bright and vibrant colours in our designs are faithfully reproduced in print. We print on the highest grade art-quality paper for a high-end finish and for prints that look good for years to come.
Since the business began in late 2018, we have satisfied thousands of online customers, and our prints are stocked in a number of brick & mortar stores in the Edinburgh area. We offer maps of over 1000 locations, adding more all the time, and we are always glad to take requests for maps of specific locations.
We can accommodate most customisation requests, and around 25% of our customers do choose to modify the text on their prints when ordering to produce a more personalised print. Want to get in touch? Find our contact form here.

We’ll know that we’ve got it right not just by thriving on our own but as we watch collaborators grow through our journey together.
I am an abstract mixed media painter, creating small and large works on canvas, panel and paper.
My paintings hold my fears, my love and my dreams–a conversation between shape and line, insular and enmeshed, strident and strong, floating alone in silence or teetering on the edge. In a careful balance, my paintings represent relationships past and present as I maneuver a new world.
Give me a charcoal line and I will show you my heart’s story…

Moody Monday Limited
Moody Monday debuted to critical acclaim in 2014, led by designer and creative director Eliza Kesuma.
After graduating with a degree in Textiles & Design from Heriot-Watt University, Eliza undertook multiple freelance projects and work experience opportunities with notable design companies. In 2008, a major interiors company recruited her as part of their communication and design team.
Noticing a niche in the interiors market for distinctive designs that challenged traditional creative concepts, Eliza began developing a signature style that was innovative, stylish and luxurious. By embracing individuality, she strives to subvert people’s expectations of interior design with her highly original and provocative collections.
Moody Monday’s core philosophy that beauty can come from the unlikeliest of places underpins each design, product and project Eliza creates. Her ‘Secret Music Collection’, inspired by the hidden inner workings of an abandoned musical organ, produced exquisitely compelling designs that received widespread praise at exhibitions across the UK.
Along with a bespoke service that tailors design concepts to fit the specific needs of clients, Moody Monday welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with innovative interior companies, global brands and businesses.
