Our team has a combined total of over 20 years in this industry making us the longest running artists and manufacturers of custom nautical chart art in the country. Combining our expertise to create our own brand gives our customers a time-trusted outlet to have their memories on the water transformed into personalized family heirlooms.

Our Story:

Sea & Soul Nautical Chart Art began as a friendship between Bob Stremcha and Anna Chesanek who met while producing nautical charts for different companies.  Anna was the art director and Bob was the manufacturer.  Along with a love of the water, family and friends, they shared a love for the products they were producing. As a result of changing times, they decided it was time to work together under their own brand where they could insure the best possible customer experience and have complete creative and quality control. Bob has manufactured these products continuously since 2005 for 5 different businesses, and most of these product designs are original to him. Anna has been a driving force in creating and producing the art and graphics needed to produce these one-of-a-kind works of art.

Bob’s business, Kustom Kraft Laser, is a small family business in rural Kendall, Wisconsin, owned by Bob’s wife Kathy.  Although the business was established in 1995 as a woodworking shop, they have grown from a 2-car garage to a 6500sqft commercial facility that includes a large-field high-power commercial laser and a complete wood shop.

For the last 13 years, Kustom Kraft Laser’s product line has included 3D charts, serving trays, clocks and cribbage boards depicting lakes, rivers, coastlines, stadiums and golf courses.  As the longest running manufacturer of these products in the country, they have produced well over 20,000 of them. They designed not only the products themselves, but also the way they are produced. They make the charts and their frames, as well as the serving trays, coffee tables, clocks and cribbage boards, all in-house.

Almost 10 years ago KK Laser began working with Anna’s company, West Central Design Group as the graphic design company who would provide the detailed drawings needed to create these personalized works of art. Having drawn and/or manufactured for different companies over the last 13 years, the next step in our evolution was to manufacture our products under our own brand.  Together, Kustom Kraft Laser and West Central Design Group have created a powerhouse in the wooden Nautical Charts industry; welcome to Sea & Soul.

Wow! Love this gift I had custom made by Sea and Soul Charts. It even has my clients new home address pinpointed on the map! If you are looking for a creative gift for your clients!  Ursini & Company – A division of Brista Homes

We picked up the map yesterday.  It is beautiful!   It looks how we hoped it would… even better, I think! Thank you for all your design work – getting all our details just right.  You and Bob make a great team. Our daughter will love the map of the river she works on.

Our custom map is absolutely beautiful. It exceeded our expectations. The wood Bob chose for the walnut frame had beautiful grain as did the birch that the river map was on. The detail and finishing quality was master craftsmanship.

Anna was great to work with – she helped us design the map to fit our needs and all of the special details that we requested.

They gave us a clear picture of what they would do and what to expect and when it would be done and they delivered on all. We picked the river map up in person and we appreciated the time Bob took with us.

It is so difficult to come up with idea to get your boss as a gift?  I was so happy when I found Sea & Soul’s website.  I ordered a custom clock with our company logo for my broker to hang in his office and he absolutely loved it! Thanks for making me look like employee of the year!
