    Nothing dresses up a blank wall over a futon in a semi-finished basement rec/guest room like a 6' x 4' world map in smart earthtones.
    It also makes the ultimate Skype video backdrop, making you automatically look like you know exactly what's going on in Aqtaū, let alone that it exists.
    The dry-erase utility of the lamination far outweighs any surface glare, and you can either write or sticky-note "YOU ARE HERE" on your location when prepping the area for guests. Nothing ensures interesting dreams like falling alseep with a broad perspective. Depending on what you've eaten, of course.
    I have to concur with at least one other review, however, as I noticed surface wrinkles in the lamination while carefully unrolling the map from its mailing tube. More care should be taken on the fulfillment end. But hey, free mailing tube!

    We hung the huge laminated map in our living room with two sided tape. It is noticed as you enter our front door! It is nice, accurate and fun, but since it is laminated, the whole map reflects light from the windows and lamps. The glare shows every ripple of the map's surface. We would love The map more if it had a GLARE-FREE laminate instead of shiny one!
    Is that available? the Back side doesn't matter, just the front. Other than that, we like it a lot. Great conversation piece!

        Thoroughly pleased in every way. From the laminate to the way packaged. Amazed with how vibrant the map colors are. I was concerned about the laminate and previous comments about creasing. My map arrived crease free until I myself bent the map in a way that was sure to create a crease. We realized we had to be very careful with it if we didn't want to cause more creases. I couldn't be happier!! Thank You so much for a wonderful product.

            Arrived well packaged and on time. I was worried about wrinkles in the lamination based off previous reviews however, I bought this on sale so a total of 23 bucks with delivery was worth the risk. It looks beautiful. I can NOT believe the price I got on this wonderful wall map. It is part of a room decoration that will highlight family travel and history.

            It is a beautiful map but the lamination is very easy to wrinkle, I think it was even wrinkled a little before it was shipped, and it was impossible to mount on the wall without wrinkling it more, so in some light it's not as pleasant to look at as I'd like.

            Comments about World Political Map (Earth-toned), Enlarged and Laminated :

            We loved the map and the laminates sheen and protection. We mounted it to thin smooth plywood and my husband built a beautiful frame for it. Unfortunately there are some imperfections in the laminate and there is a long vertical crease/bubble the entire height of the map (6 inches from the right edge), and some crinkling in north Africa. But we realize it is just a laminated map that we have made into the center art piece of our living room. Still recommend it.

              Our office provides registration and conference logistic planning services for a major Big 10 mid-western university. We organize and register conference attendees for events all over the globe. I thought it would be interesting (and fun) to have a large map mounted and placed in our lobby reception area for clients and guests to be able to see the various locations where we have held conferences and registrations. We have small map pins at each location on the 4' x 6' map that I had mounted and framed (w/o glass). It looks great and is a real conversation piece!
