Need a map!

Is there any kind of slick map-generation tool available online (preferably for free-ish) that I can use in my presentations?

I work for a firm that doesn't have an in-house graphics department, so creating quality images to use in our Word documents and PowerPoints falls to me. We do not have the budget for either Photoshop or Illustrator (and really, those would be overkill for what we do), so I usually rely In my line of work, we use Gliffy
to create our flow charts and other basic graphics. I'm trying to find out if there's any kind of similar tool out there that will let me create a map of the U.S. with thumb tacks or some other map-y thing to pinpoint our different locations. Ideally, I'd be able to pick the shading on the map as well as the colors used to indicate our branches, because some of the branches are bone fide offices while others are "satellite locations" (marketing-speak for our telecommuters).
I know I could sort of do this through Google Maps, and then screen-cap it, but I'm hoping to find something a little glossier, especially since most folks can spot a Google Map from 200 yards away. Help?
