Hi! Welcome to Palm Prints! 
Palm Prints is an illustration studio & gift shop established in 2020 in Boston by me - illustrator and artist, Courtney Palmer Trombetta!
With travel and plans with loved ones being limited during that year, I started drawing maps of beloved New England vacation spots as gifts for friends and family. These maps included all of those familiar places with ties to happy memories, like that favorite restaurant by the ocean where annual family trips are kicked off with a cocktail in hand, or the beach you basically live at during the summer. Soon after I began creating these maps, I started receiving requests from others to illustrate places that were meaningful to them as well - like the location of a destination wedding or honeymoon, or maps of the hometown they had recently moved away from, and Palm Prints has continued to grow from there with artwork inspired by your favorite places. I absolutely love creating pieces that allow you to keep your most favorite memories close to your heart. More of my story can be seen in this Be Your Own Boss feature by Boston 25 News!

Where Did the Name "Palm Prints" Come From?
When I decided to create a shop to share my artwork, I was brainstorming shop names with a friend (thanks, Gabi!) who suggested "Palm Prints" as a play on my last name (now maiden name), Palmer. The word "Palm" made me think of familiar things - like a hand print, as well as palm leaves, and my family - it felt perfect considering my art is always inspired by familiar vacation spots. And "Prints" were the original products in my shop, which has since grown to include mugs and other types of stationery as well!
