    Great map for older kids, May 8, 2008
    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: US Rolled Map (M Series World Wall Maps) (Paperback)

    I purchased this and the “World Map” together from Amazon, since they are made by the same company on the same material, much of my review will be the same:

    I was hunting for maps large enough for a 6 and 10 year old to look at and comprehend, but cheap enough to be replaced once things change or the kids did too much damage to it.

    The positives – this map is correct, it’s large (we tacked them up in the hallway to the kids’ rooms) and it’s very colorful, which is good for 6 year olds. It has time zones, capitals, waterways, and mountain ranges all clearly marked

    The negatives – it’s not laminated, now if I was buying this for myself that would be fine, but the paper is also some strange form of paper that attracts and holds small sticky fingerprints. Being maps, little fingers are naturally attracted like magnets.

    If you are making the purchase for an adult or a classroom, or if you intend to frame it, then I highly recommend this map. If you are buying for little ones, I’d spend the extra money to get a laminated version.

    One last note – if you purchase from Amazon, they are not particularly well packed. They put them in a tube that is too large for the map so it bangs around and the ends get a bit bent up. Also they don’t tape the ends of the tube so I had to have a second one sent after my first tube arrived empty and without ends on it. (It was actually the world map that was missing from the tube, but this one was packed in the same manner)

    crinkled upon arrival, September 22, 2010

    The map itself is quite nice, which is the only thing keeping me from giving this a one-star rating. Two things really stand out, and most other reviewers have already noted these:

    - this product is shipped in an envelope, not a cardboard tube like the world map from swiftmap that I ordered (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0006I59E8/ref=oss_product). Officemap really needs to fix this because my map arrived with all sorts of crinkles in it. If it weren’t such a hassle, I would return the map.

    - the lamination is not true lamination — it’s more like what you get when you buy inexpensive glossy photo paper for your inkjet printer, if not thinner. I won’t be using any dry-erase markers on this map unless I cover it with plexiglass or some other laminate.

    Nice Map. Skimpy Lamination, June 21, 2009

    The map is great and the packaging was also good.

    I would give it 5 stars, but the lamination was a bit of a let down. When I read laminated, I think those laminating pages that you put on a paper and then send through a machine, resulting in a heavy, near indestructible page. This lamination is fine for writing or whatever, but it’s very thin and wouldn’t stand up to much abuse.

    Not necessarily a fault. Just FYI to anyone else looking at it.
