How we build your custom lodging map


The Process for Custom Lodging Maps

Upon purchase you will receive a form which you fill out with the locations you want on your map along with some questions that will help us understand your vision and design the map to your style. Next:

  • Upon receipt of your list of locations, we design your map per your design guidelines & send you a draft within 3 weeks.
  • We then have a Zoom video meeting to go over the draft with you, making tweaks until you love your map.
  • You approve the final map.
  • We deploy your custom HipMap to our app and produce the image suitable for printing – including a QR code for your renters and guests to scan to easily get your map on their phones.

Earn great reviews – your guests will appreciate the convenience and thoughtfulness of your personalized map!
