Comments about World Political Map (Earth-toned), Laminated:
I purchased this map along with the enlarged version of the same map. This map exceeded my expectations and served as a nice gift. I still found it a bit small for my purposes (hence why I ordered the large version).
For the price, this map is a much better deal. The materials are rigid enough for the size. The enlarged version's laminate and actual map are not of high enough quality (thickness/rigidity/etc.) to fit the size.
No real cons. Very nice for a small office wall.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
