I am a teacher looking for a laminated wall map of the Ancient Near East and Roman Empire
Peter Richards says
I just bought two of your Brilliant Maps for Curious Minds. I love it: just the right maps for kids (I am an elementary school teacher) who are visual and- as you say- curious.
I wish I could have posters made of those inventive, never-before-seen maps, to hang on the wall and entice other kinds of students. Photocopying them is illegal and inconvenient, as the pages are in a book and thus can’t be flat on a printer’s glass.
SO, WHY NOT SELL YOUR MAPS AS SET OF POSTERS????
Or…just a few to begin with. They don’t have to be 18″ x 24″. They could be smaller.
I know several teachers (including me) who would buy them. Not only are they interesting slants on the world, they bring up issues that can spark conversation and debate. (NB: It would be interesting to map slavery in 2019).
Brilliant Maps says
Many thanks for your message and suggestion. Unfortunately, all those decisions need to go through the publisher. However, I will talk to them about it.
What is the best world map to mark with push pins? Are they all laminated so they aren’t damaged? What size push pins r best & where to buy? Looking for pins with a small head. Looking for a large one that I can frame. Approximately 4 feet by 3feet?
Carly McBaker says
Try searching on amazon for Push Pin Maps. There are plenty of Maps you can get for a decent price!
**Some of the Maps might come with frames, if not. get a frame that 1 size bigger.**
And Try using regular push pins, if those are to small, try ones that are a bit bigger! so maybe 2x in size.
**If you do use smaller ones, I recommend using red ones, those will stand out better**
You can buy a pack of 60 colorful Push Pins at the dollar tree for 1.99. (U.S dollars)
What do all the different colors mean on a map? Or is it just decorative?
The colors are to code different continents, countries, and states. for example. on the bottom of a colored map, there’s a box, with the place, with a colored box next to it. so, If there was a green box next to Brazil, that means the Country Brazil, would be green.
Another reasoning it could be colored is to make it stand out of any wall, room, office, etc.
So, to answer your question, it would indeed be both.
Carly McBaker says
The different colors are usually used to color code the continents, countries, and states.
Paixão Pascoal says
Is there a world map with monuments sticking out in 3d?
there are many/many kinds of 3D maps on amazon.com.
Yomtee Fried says
I have in stock a lot of scratch-off maps, which I have planned for selling, but It didn’t happen anything from it, I am not into product retailing… and I am closing this store. (maybe I’ll do wholesaling, will see after the Virus goes away)
So I am looking to get rid of those maps.
My question is if you would be interested in buying them?
I have added to it a special feature of 4 sliding bars that helps the maps to keep open outside of a frame.
I also have some pictures.
Please let me know if you would like to buy them.

Is there any possible way to make a WATERPROOF Map?
Peter B. Ives says
You could have it laminated although that is not foolproof. What is the purpose of your map? Many maps made for the outdoors (hiking, river running, etc.) are made of a water impregnable material. Places like REI (in the USA) and similar stores usually have them. Good luck.
Jennie Agréable says
