New Product -- Announcing MapsCase!

We could not be more excited to launch our newest product, MapsCase! MapsCase is an elegant yet durable case for your phone, which is possibly your most important possession other than your dignity. 

If you can't tell yet, we love cities, we love maps, we love functionality, and we love simple yet striking design. And thus MapsCase was born!

We hope you'll love these as much as we do. We'll be adding new cities and adding the iPhone 6 as soon as we can, so drop us a line at if you have ideas for cities we should add, or any other thoughts you have about them. We love hearing from you.

What's a Grommet? We are!

Our friends over at The Grommet in nearby Somerville, MA, work hard to promote growing brands and cool products. So it seemed like a natural fit when they asked us to feature a selection of our Maps Glassware with them. We even got to make a cool video -- check it out!

Check us out in West Elm!

We're over-the-moon thrilled to be partnering with West Elm's Local initiative, which promotes the work of local artists and designers by featuring their designs in West Elm stores. We just so happened  to be in the neighborhood of the West Elm Fenway store last night in Boston, and we just so happened  to catch them setting up our display!

Fire the blogger! And Happy Pi Day 2014!

Apparently our blogger went into hiding after Christmas and is only now re-surfacing to celebrate Pi Day...

Speaking of, Pi Day -- or 3.14 -- is an annual celebration of the wonderful, stupendous, irrational constant that literally makes the world go round. Where would we be without pi? Some questions are better left unanswered.

So in honor of this landmark day, we've been running a sale on all of our pi-themed products -- from our world-famous Pi Bottle Opener, to our Pi Pint Glasses you can use to celebrate and our Pi Kitchen Towels which you'll need to clean up after the party. Just enter the code PiForAll when you check out and get 20% off these fun products and many more.

So cheers to the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter! And to our faithful blogger being alive and well!


*Sale ends at midnight EST on Monday, March 17. Get in while the gettin's good!

...and a happy new year!

As we wind down 2013 and prepare for a couple weeks of putting the wrong date on our letters and checks, we here at theUncommonGreen just want to thank everyone who visited us, wrote to us, searched for us on the internet, joined our newsletter or found us on social media, shopped with us, recommended us to friends and family... and in general helped us have such an amazing year!

Your enthusiasm for our products, helpful feedback, and all-around awesomeness are what make our work so rewarding.

We look forward to even better things in 2014, so come on back any time and see what we've been working on!

Holiday Shipping Guidelines

Hey there, friends!

Thanks to everyone who is helping to keep us busy this holiday season -- there has definitely been a Santa's workshop kind of vibe around here lately. Unlike Father Christmas, though, we rely on USPS and UPS to get our gifts under the tree on Christmas morning, so please keep in mind these dates to ensure that your order reaches you with enough time to slap a bow on it and give it to that special someone:

- Standard shipping (USPS Priority Mail and UPS Ground) -- Order by 12:00 pm EST on Tuesday, December 17.

- Expedited shipping (UPS 2nd Day, UPS Next Day, USPS 1-Day) -- Order by 12:00 pm EST on Friday, December 20.

And as always, if you ever have a question, just drop us a note at

Cheers, and happy holidays!
