    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!

                This map is both useful and beautiful. I would recommend it for adults, and children, ages 6 and up.

                It is perfect for providing young people with a perspective of the world we live in.
                It's also a good choice for meeting & board rooms, class rooms, and studies.

                The lamination protects the surface and makes it easy to remove fingerprints.

                    We needed a map this size to use as a pattern for a cake we are making of the earth. The size of this map is perfect, the price was right and it is working perfectly for us. The map needed to be this size as we will be serving 350. We're thrilled we were able to get the map. We originally thought we would cut the map up to make patterns, which we could easily do with it, but decided we like it too much and will instead draw patterns on paper over top of the map.

                      At the request of my supervisor, I searched for and found a large laminated map for a new unit in our department. This beautiful map caught my eye and the price kept my attention. I ordered one and it arrived well packaged within two days. Once my supervisor saw the map, he asked that I order two more, one for his home office and one for his adult son. I would order one for my son, however, I am not sure I have the appropriate wall space for hanging. Would absolutely recommend to a friend.
