Great Ideas: Make a Backer Map

Ward Shelley recently ran a project to create limited edition prints of his photographs. Instead of going through a photo printing service, he decided to print the large-format images himself. Thirteen backers ordered custom prints of varying sizes and helped push Ward comfortably over his initial goal of $275.

As Ward prepares to mail off the prints, he created this super-nifty map of where his backers are geographically located:

Pretty cool stuff. Looks like Ward’s prints are heading all over the globe!
