National Geographic: World Classic Wall Map - Laminated (43.5 x 30.5 inches) (National Geographic Reference Map) Reviews
It's a nice big map, although you will most likely need to get it framed to hang properly. In Indian terms, it cost about USD 10 more for the framing.
I put it on my kitchen table under heavy duty clear plastic. I can look at it any time. (Well, I usually have to move the mail first.)
It is a nice product. The size of the map is neither too small nor too big and It just fits our wall. The countries can be located easily. We bought it to get to know countries we do not know about at home and it serves the purpose very well. The quality of the map and lamination is also good. Just make sure you do not insert the tacks too close to the margin. The lamination, by itself, is not strong enough to hold your map.
I bought this map to replace my current paper one that is not laminated. This is way better because i can circle my destinations with whiteboard markers and easily wipe them off thereafter. The fonts are super clear and high-definition, even for the tiny ones. The small fonts is one thing which most other maps fail to print properly. I bought this map because it is by Nat Geo and i trust its quality. I wasn't disappointed when i received it. It is thinly laminated but still good quality and carefully rolled up and shipped to me in an Amazon box full of paper stuffings to protect it from shipping damage. It unrolled well and it did not have strong rolls that hindered me putting it up on my wall. Now i am so happy looking at it each time i walk past my wall. I recommend this medium sized map to anyone who wants one!
This map has wonderful vibrant colors, and is very detailed of countries and cities. Very nice laminate and came in a roll so there are no wrinkles. This is a great reference source, and a nice piece of wall art.
My son is in the military and is deployed often. I bought this map for my grandchildren to map where they are and where their daddy is when he is deployed. The map is beautiful and easy to read. The lamination is great for the little sticky tabs, so they can move when location changes.
A very nice map, true to description. The laminate is very flexible and it is not difficult to reverse-roll it to get it flat. I just put it directly on the wall with removable sticking squares, but I can see that it would also work nicely mounted on foam board.
I hung this over a bulletin board, and use pins to show all the places where my company works. The colors are very vivid, the resolution is sharp, and the product arrived in great condition. Overall, I'd highly recommend!
