About Neon Maps

I love the satellite images of Earth at night, with the glow of city lights showing streets of major urban areas. Then I thought how cool it would be if every city, on every street decided to replace the dull street lambs with colorful neon lights. And so I thought to myself: How neat it would be to see your favorite city or home town from space in neon colors? Enter Neon Maps!

"Some pretty neon maps. It's great to see how much a city's character you can get from just the roads." - Jonathan Roberts, Owner of Fantasticmaps

Why Kickstart this?

I would love to kickstart this project and see where this idea goes. In during so, I need your help! With the cost of all the prints, advertising, paper, shipping materials and creating a new website for Neon Maps.  (www.neonmaps.com)

    • A large amount of city maps

    • A website where people can visit and order prints

    • A social media fanbase

    About the prints

    The maps will be printed on semi-gloss photo paper with the best inks in the business. The prints will also be good for framing to hang in the house or office. 

    Print sizes

    Small 11x14

    Large 16x20

    Extra Large 20x30

Risks and challenges

I've lowered the budget this time due to finding newer and much better means of printer that will be much cheaper on my part. I've also decided to not go with glow in the dark printing for special offers (This was way too costly on my end and I felt would be a risk for my bidders also.
I've learned a lot from my first attempt that my first budget of 1500 was well over the goal of my vision. Now overlooking my needs, 500 would be better so I can fund my project.

The biggest risk for me is the schedule. It's going to be very busy with the holiday season and all the maps I hope to build for the ones who pledge custom cities by demand. I've researching good printers in my area in hopes of getting the best deals and quality for poster prints.

Another challenged for me is creating the website, which i'll spend money for the hosting and theme template. The website will be another risk in itself, since it will be able to give updates on new maps, an ordering system for online customers and even info pages linked from the maps by means of QR codes!
