Here are some things to consider when choosing one of these fine maps. With the exception of the Tyvek map, everything shown is laminated and priced as such. (other than raised relief or otherwise noted) We recommend the "Rail option" for a finished look and ease of hanging. However, if you are planning to get the map framed at a local framer (check our prices on framed maps first) then you might want to choose the map you want in a paper-only finish.  Most of the maps shown above have a paper-only option. The item number is the same, it just has a "-P" suffix. Speaking of framing, here's another problem we occasionally encounter. A customer will come across a cool old frame and think "Gee wouldn't a map look good in this frame"? The problem is that they want to warp the World to fit their frame. All the maps shown above have a particular proportion. As you can see from the thumbnails above, it's always landscape, not portrait and a map of the world is generally about 1.5 times longer than it is wide...

The Map Shop is proud to have the largest selection of wall maps on the internet. These wall maps can be used to make design statements and provide practical reference. They come in varied geography, styles, and sizes and come in a variety of finishing options – from paper maps, laminated maps, mounted maps, framed maps and spring roller maps. All of our maps are finished by-hand using high-quality materials at our Shop in Charlotte, NC. Buy a traditional road map help your business make an important decision, or buy an interactive scratch map to plot your travels and decorate your space. All maps can be laminated and used with dry-erase markers or mounted on foam core, which allows you to use map pins to mark the map. If we don’t have it, our cartographers on staff can make it for you.
