What our clients are saying…

“Julie is professional, responsive, and creates high quality products. Very happy with the work she produced for our company.
Kate Keats
Kwiakah First Nation
“We’ve worked with Julie several times on visitor guides and she has been great! Our projects are often long processes and despite our long periods of lack of communication, Julie was patient and always quick to turnaround with the edits/changes. When pushed against a deadline, she always came through. Will definitely continue using Julie on future projects.”
Katryna Vecella
Oregon Media
“The maps that Julie Witmer created for me exceeded my expectations, and the price for her professional talents was most reasonable. If you have been as frustrated as I was, trying to find a cartographer for my special needs, Julie should be your first choice.”
Patrick Shannon
“Julie Witmer Custom Map Design provided exceptional, high-quality design services that greatly enhanced the narrative of my soon to be published book on Georgia history. Julie always responded promptly and professionally to my inquiries and never grew frustrated by numerous requests for edits.
Julie is the absolute BEST!”
Michael Thurmond
“I enjoyed working with Julie. She was prompt, professional, and an obviously skilled cartographer. She transformed my crude concepts into four high-quality black-and-white maps suitable for printing in a hard-cover World War Two history book. She quickly made all necessary revisions as we worked through my project.

Perhaps most noticeably, she added the small details in coverage areas, line formats, fonts, and the like, all of which make the difference between a lackluster map and a professional one.”
Mark Strobel
“Julie did an excellent job working from my terrible mock-ups and making them align as well as fitting into my theme and aesthetic! Very friendly and easy to work with.”
Megan MacLean
Author, Kryda’s Adventures

Glenn Bergen

“I had a great experience working with Julie on a key map for my forthcoming book, “Networks of Improvement” (University of Chicago Press). Julie didn’t just give me the map I wanted. She enabled me to see what was possible, and then I could make a proper decision about what I wanted. Then she produced just the map to fit what I’d imagined. A great professional and a very helpful person!”
Jon Mee

“Julie did an excellent job on the map for my book. She understood what I needed, even if I didn’t know the terminology, quick turnaround time and excellent suggestions on how to present the map. The final product looks great.”
Paul Ritchie
“My novel’s heroine finds herself in a multitude of towns and provinces of the Late Roman Empire, but thanks to Julie Witmer’s beautifully crafted maps the reader will never be at a moment’s loss in keeping track of her whereabouts.”
Kathleen W. Fraser

Ashley Angeloni
Executive Director, Tourism Vaughan
“I contacted Julie after getting a reference from a writer friend whose novel included a number of beautiful maps. I was concerned that my map would help readers understand where my characters were in my novel about the Byzantines. Julie did a fabulous job, meeting with me on Zoom, learning about what I wanted in my map, making the adjustments that I requested, and returning it to me in a timely fashion. The map looks wonderful and I couldn’t be more pleased with it!”
Eileen Stephenson
Author, Imperial Passions: The Porta Aurea
“I was in a bind (no pun intended) to get maps reworked in under a week for a book I was publishing. Julie was quick to respond to my inquiry and provided a very reasonable quote for services. Julie took my concept drawing and turned it around into exactly what I needed, delivering the final map in well under a week. I am really proud to have her professional work inside the cover of my book and highly recommend Julie for anyone looking for cartography work on their projects.”
Colin Yarbrough

Julie was fantastic to work with, and her cartography work is beautiful. Our team required a large number of custom maps, on a short timeline, and Julie delivered them promptly with ample time for review periods. I look forward to working with her again, and highly recommend her work.”
Samantha Tremmel
Plan Manager, ClimateActionWR
“My team member and I enjoyed working with Julie. She was prompt and attentive to our need and offered incremental solutions for our project. Her turn around time was great as well.

Maria Rasouli
Owner & Operator, Escape Bicycle Tours
“My editor suggested I add a map to my book because the geographic area would not be familiar to my readers. I needed the map on short notice so I searched online and found Julie. We scheduled a call and got started right away. I can’t believe how easy it was to get the map I needed.”
Christina Lee
Author, Saints of Resistance
“It was this way – my latest novel was badly in need of some maps to help readers follow and understand the odyssey undertaken by my hero, Jack Telford, from Spain to Morocco and then all through Equatorial Africa. They needed to look professional but, at the same time, appear to have been drawn by Telford himself. Tall order! But Julie Witmer’s work produced precisely what I needed.”
David Ebsworth
Author, A Betrayal of Heroes and other books
“It was a great experience working with Julie. She was super responsive to all my emails and requests. And her work is of the highest quality. Most importantly, after only a brief discussion she understood immediately what I wanted and produced near perfect several drafts on the first try. If you are thinking about selecting Julie for your cartography needs. Don’t hesitate. Just say yes and enjoy the results! 
Gregory Madonna
Author, The Learjet Diaries
“Julie made the process smooth and fluid. Communication was phenomenal, from the initial phone call to emails back and forth – it was easy. When we’re passionate about what we do it should be easy, and it shows. The importance of communication and punctuality are huge, and it speaks volumes about Julie’s organization and enthusiasm.
