How to choose your United States star map art
Your map art should complement your space, whether you hang it in your living room or above your bed. We have trendy and beautiful designs for all tastes, whether you want a vintage looking map or more modern style with dark accents. From Japanese-inspired motifs to nautical-themed maps, our designs are diverse to suit any décor.
Size is also important. You do not want your map to overwhelm a small wall or be so tiny that it has virtually no impact. There are three sizes to choose from, so you can be bold with a feature poster on a large wall or opt for a smaller map to stand on a table or desk. You can also create portrait and landscape maps, giving you more flexibility to fit your night sky art perfectly into your space.
How to personalize your United States star map poster
With our easy-to-use customization tool, we make it simple to design a personalized view of the night sky. Create your customizable star map poster by entering exact coordinates or the name of a specific place anywhere in the country. You can also enter a specific date and we create a precise view of the night sky on that day.
There is plenty of space to include text, whether it is an inspirational quote you love or a touching message to your loved one. You can include a meaningful date or the name of a loved one, or just include the coordinates or name of the city. With four lines of text available, you can personalize your custom star map any way you like.
Can I design a star map poster of the United States for any special occasion?

Why I’m in love with my United States star map
My brother and I did a road trip across the U.S. For my birthday, he created a custom night sky poster of the view over Arches National Park. The stop in Utah was a highlight from the memorable trip. Every time I look at my United States star map poster I remember our trip. It was a touching gift, plus it looks great.
