Mapping Memories

Appealing to sentimental travelers, DIY maps make experiences longer lasting

Implications - While trips and excursions often feature thrilling and exciting moments, those memories often become fleeting recollections once the trip has concluded. Seeking to make experiences longer lasting, consumers are turning to DIY approaches to create customized features that act as reminders of where they've been. Wall maps and pinnable globes allow travelers to visually record all of their globetrotting adventures, reflecting a growing demand for keepsakes that make memories more enduring.
