Comments about World Political Map (Classic), Enlarged and Mounted:
Nothing wrong with the map itself... It was exactly what I wanted....the problem started when I went to hang it.... First of all the the predrilled holes are not on conventional building centers and due to the Weight of the map almost impossible to hang on sheet rock.... So I called NG and ask for help...The lady was very nice and indicated she would contact the supplier... One week later nothing... So I called her again....one week later the same... So I decided I would Jerry rig some clips of my own as they only pre drill the holes and do not supply any clips to fit them to aid in the hanging... Felt I was pretty clever on devising something that would work.... The only problem when I went to hang the map the pre drilled holes were not strong enough to hold the weight of the map and the particle like board just crumbled away and the map came tumbling down.... After this I emailed NG and asked them what now to do.... Guess what? No reply!!!!so this morning checking me email I get this email asking me to review... Map great....service terrible...and instruction or help to hang deplorable and ease of hanging stupid.... You asked
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
