I'm glad these maps are turning out to be popular anniversary gifts (especially for the third anniversary). This client wanted to mark the spots they had met, proposed, and married their partner; all in the city of Baltimore!
I've been noticing that some of the maps I'd made for myself were starting to peel from the backings after a year or so. That's not something I'm really happy about but the only way to step up the fastening was to stick something through the leather and the hardboard. I could've used rivets for that and probably been alright but I thought stitching would look nicer. This does mean drilling every single hole (until/unless I figure out something better) but it gets the job done!
