Mounted Map Specifications
- Map is mounted to a 3/16 inch foam-core board backing.
- The front of the map is laminated AND the back of the foam board is laminated. This lamination protects the map from the elements and provides additional rigidity.
- The foam boards come in original sizes of 92" x 48", so any map size which will fit on this size board can be mounted. This includes the map sizes:
- Large (standard)
- Note: Mural sizes may not be mounted because size of the foam board is exceeded.
- Map push pins are now included with every mounted map order - turning any of our maps into a pinable map set.
- Additional quantity and colors of map pins can be ordered here.
Pinning Mounted Maps
The most common use of mounted maps is to be pinned with map pins and tacks. This allows you to quickly and easily mark specific locations on the map and even use different colored pins to color-code the locations you'd like to mark.
Pinable mounted maps also allow customers of a store or restaurant, or members of a group to mark the locations of their home town. These types of maps offer a great way for people to interact with the store/restaurant and also lets them "leave their mark" for future people to see. It also gives customers a sense of the scope of your business and lets them see the home town of previous customers or patrons.
For personal maps, you can pin the locations of your family members, vacation destinations (both past and future destinations), places that you've lived, or all the places you've visited.
For businesses, you can pin the locations of different branches, stores or retail outlets, customers or clients, distribution centers, or anything else to help visualize important business or company information on your map.
Other Uses of Mounted Maps
The mounting of maps is often useful for the display of the map and makes them easier to hang or re-hang on a wall.
Mounted maps also look much more professional than paper maps, as the additional thickness of the backing makes them feel durable, and they will display perfectly flat with no rolled corners or creases.
Mounted maps also work perfectly for presentations or any other time they are to be displayed on an easel.
