I would like 100 maps of the Charlottesville VA area to be given to each of our wedding guests. I am hoping to find maps drawn in the 3-dimensional “cartoon style.” Can you help?

Casey says:

Actually, no I don’t have a contact for cartoon map drawing. I’m sure you can talk with the folks at the Charlottesville Convention & Visitors Bureau to obtain their regular maps. Contact info here: http://www.virginia.org/site/description.asp?attrid=14136
