How to sell custom STAR MAP products in minutes! ๐ŸŒ 

We have a new feature that you will totally LOVE ๐Ÿ’ซ the STAR MAPS are now available in Customily 2.0! What does it mean? That you can add a STAR MAP to any product that you want to sell, and let your customers personalize it by choosing any location in the world and a specific day in the calendar! โœจ


Once you choose a place and date, the star map of that specific moment will appear in the product. Amazing right? ๐Ÿคฏ Not only this, but you can also let them choose between different options such as showing only the constellation or also a map grid, or even the milky way! ๐ŸŒ 


And, since we like to do things big, there are already 15 map styles to choose from!! So you can be sure there are color options to match any kind of product ๐Ÿ˜‰



The STAR MAPS have become super popular lately and it's a great way of offering a new collection of products in your store! You can play around with the different styles, and also combine them with texts to create designs for special occasions ๐Ÿ’ž


Before starting to set up your products, there are 2 things you need to think about:

  1. Which product are you going to sell?: Even if the star maps can be applied to any product, there are some that look better than others, or that are trending right now!

  2. Which design do you want to offer?: Will you let your customers add their own texts? Will you create a collection for couples? For birthdays? Or maybe newly borns? There are many options you can try!

Let's see some ideas of what you can do and how to apply the star maps to different types of products! ๐Ÿ’ซ


Design Ideas

A simple way to use the star maps is just adding it to a product, adding a text box, and letting your customers write whatever they want.


But, you can also create some specific designs that will surely convert better, especially on dates like Valentine's or Mother's Day! ๐Ÿ˜‰

If you need inspiration to create a design, think of it this way: what moments in anyone's life deserve to be remembered? Because that's basically what star maps do, help us remember of a very specific date and place that meant something special to us ๐Ÿ’ซ


Let's see different text ideas you can use to create designs for the most popular occasions!


Designs for couples:

  • "The Night We Met"

  • "Our First Kiss"

  • "Our Beginning"

  • "The Night We Said I Do"

  • "Where It All Began"

  • "Name + Name"

Designs for birthdays/newly borns:

  • "A Star is Born"

  • "NAME"

  • "It All Began Under This Sky"

  • "Born Beneath This Sky"

  • "Born Under These Stars"

  • "The Brightest Star"


Designs for Mother's/Father's Day:

  • "Under This Sky You Became My Mom"

  • "The Night You Became Our Mom"

  • "We Love You More Than The Stars In These Skies"

  • "The Brightest Star"


Now that you have many design ideas, let's see how to apply them to different products! ๐Ÿ’ž



Custom Star Map Canvas

This is the best-selling star map product. You will see it everywhere! When you google star maps, your screen will fill with different canvases of all sizes and colors.

You can play around with the different map styles and text colors to create something unique.


Or, instead of selling a canvas with a white background, you can go for a blue or black linen and use a clear map style (there's a transparent option!). Look how beautiful they look! ๐Ÿ˜‰



Custom Star Map T-Shirt

Another classic! This is a great idea for birthdays. Just let the customer add a name, date, and place, and you'll have a great (and unique!) t-shirt that anybody will love. Besides, with the wide range of map colors, there are options for everybody!



Custom Star Map Mug

Mugs are another popular product where you can add star maps. You can also play around with the colors, but look how great the transparent style looks on a black mug!



Custom Star Map Acrylic Plaques

Last but not least, we have the awesome acrylic plaques. This product has been a hot trend in 2022 and keeps growing strong in 2023. Many suppliers are adding them to their catalogs, so we highly recommend you take advantage of this wave. And hey, combining them with star maps seems like a great idea! You can thank us later ๐Ÿ˜‰



You now have plenty of ideas to sell star map products, but I guess you're wondering, how can you do it? ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿป
