Comments about World Political Map (Earth-toned), Poster Size and Framed:

My purchase was a gift for my husband. The map is outstanding and my husband was blown away by it. My only concern was the frame the map came in. I paid extra to get the frame and it was damaged when it arrived. The packageing was done very well which leads me to believe it didn't get damaged in transit. The paint on the frame just popped off on certain parts - some near the corners but some near the glass (center) of the frame. It appeared that the paint wasn't sticking to the material that the frame was made from. We will be buying a new frame for the map, spending more money on the product. If I purchase another item that is similar, I would purchase it without the frame. Again, the actual map is amazing and other products I've purchased from Nat Geo Store were always great.

      The frame and the plastic covering are so
      disappointing for the price. My order came damaged, the plastic didn't fit in the frame. NG sent a replacement but I wouldn't recommend this framed Map because
      of the poor quality.

        Comments about World Political Map (Earth-toned), Poster Size and Framed:

        I hung this framed map in my bedroom. I love looking at maps as I am interested in history and current events and have done some travelling. The map itself is what I wanted but the frame job is not good. The map is covered by plastic, not glass, which maybe is good, less glare and lighter weight. The box arrived damaged and frame slightly dented on one side. I can live with it. If I could order over again, i'd order the map by itself and get it professionally framed.

        Comments about World Political Map (Earth-toned), Poster Size and Framed:

        The good news. The map is beautiful. It does look great on a wall. The bad news is the first map was received damaged. I hung it on the wall before I returned it. The cable broke and it fell to the floor. The second map I received did not have the map mounted properly. The paper was sticking out between the frame and clear plastic.

                Comments about World Political Map (Earth-toned), Poster Size and Framed:

                I was very impressed with the map. It is used in my home. Like to refer to map when unfamiliar with place mentioned in a discussion or on news. However, I was disappointed it was received damaged. It appeared to have been packed that way. It should have been looked at more carefully before it was packed. The frame itself was a disappointment. It should be tighter at corners and a couple of places where it looks like a sticker was removed and left residue behind. As I said, the map itself is very nice.
