How to choose your San Francisco star map poster
We have the perfect design to help you create a stunning San Francisco star map poster. When customizing your print, consider the space where it might stand or hang. Our editing tool makes it easy to create something that looks fantastic in any space.
Consider the print’s size when you are designing your customized view of the night sky. Art should not overwhelm a small space. Similarly, it should not be so small that it is barely noticeable. We have three sizes available to help you find the perfect fit.
You should also consider orientation. We have portrait and landscape options. Portrait is well suited for narrow walls, while landscape print makes a great impact on larger spaces. Portraits are also good for standing art since it does not occupy as much space on furniture or floors as landscapes.
Finally, consider the design. Choose colors that complement the existing palette of your interior design. We also have diverse themes that match with various decors, from Japanese-inspired and vintage designs to modern black and white styles.

Why I’m in love with my San Francisco star map print
I travelled to San Francisco when I did a road trip across America with my brother. Arriving in the city was a mix of feelings, from accomplishment to sadness. To remember that moment, I designed two prints of the night sky from that day – one for me and another for my brother. I love it because it reminds me of that very special trip and all the memories I made with my brother.
