Mapping the Journey: 

       The Story of Print Modern


At Print Modern, we help you connect with the history of your neighbourhood through high-quality, handmade prints and frames. It all started with a birthday gift – an old property map that captivated our family.

As we pored over the intricate details, street names, and historical landmarks, it sparked a sense of wonder and excitement. “That’s better than having a Picasso on the wall!” someone exclaimed. The map became a conversation piece, drawing in guests who were eager to uncover the stories hidden within.

I’ve always had a keen interest in old maps, architectural drawings, and the treasure trove of history they contain. Inspired by that initial gift, I set out to share these captivating glimpses into the past with others. With my background in photography, design and printing and picture framing, I meticulously restore and frame these historical gems, allowing you to bring a piece of your neighbourhood’s story into your home.

Whether you’re a history buff, an interior design enthusiast, or simply someone who appreciates the beauty of the past, our collection of vintage maps and prints is sure to delight. We take great pride in our handcrafted frames, each one finished with a special blend of hard-drying beeswax and carnauba wax to create a sophisticated yet casual touch.

Discover the rich narratives that lie within each of our carefully curated pieces. Let us help you uncover the history of your home and connect with the timeless charm of your community.
