Hi! Welcome to Palm Prints!
I’m Courtney Palmer and Palm Prints is an illustration brand that I established in 2020 in Boston. With travel and plans with loved ones being limited during that time, I started drawing maps of beloved 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 that favorite ice cream shop where the same exact flavor was ordered every time. Soon after I started creating these maps, I started receiving requests from others to draw places that were meaningful to them as well. Palm Prints began to grow from there, and I continue to illustrate the places you know & love!
Where Did the Name "Palm Prints" Come From?
When I decided to create a shop, I asked a friend (thanks, Gabi!) what to call it, and she (somewhat jokingly) suggested "Palm Prints" as a play on my last name, Palmer. I LOVED it. The name "Palm Prints" simultaneously made me think of familiar things (like a hand print), palm leaves, and my family - which made so much sense considering I had been drawing familiar family vacation spots!
I am so grateful that you're here! Take a look around, follow along with my journey on Instagram @palmprintsco, and say hi by sending a note to firstname.lastname@example.org!
