    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!

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

        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.

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

          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.

              I got this map to go in my office and I couldn't be happier. The earth tone colors give it a touch of class, and the detail is impressive. I use it as travel ma as well and add stickers to the places I've traveled. This was the best price and quality I've seen in my searches by far.

              I used this as a backdrop for a travel theme photoshoot with a teen-age youth group and it worked out great. The size was perfect for some group photos. The teens kept noting who made the map and they were impressed, a testament to the national geographic brand.

              My only negative comment about the map is the glare created by the lamination but with the price in the long run the lamination will make this map last for years to come. It will now hang in my office.

                  This map is absolutely beautiful. I gave it as a gift to my daughter and she just raved about it. The only issue is that it is large so you better have enough wall space. Luckily she does! Now she and her friends are planning all the places they want to travel too and it's definitely going to help with her geography class next year.
