OUR STORY

Why should someone spend countless hours obsessing over the various creases and details of a seemingly insignificant piece of paper?

Because I do.

But what if I told you that there was a way to engrave all the times of uncertainty, excitement and joy while being away from your home just by a single scratch?

WOULD YOU TRAVEL MORE?
I don’t know about you but I’ve always loved to travel.

And every December I go skiing with my family in the French Alps. But in 2016 something was a bit different...
Half way through our journey, after a long day of skiing, we and as I was drinking my warm ginger tea, I glimpsed at an almost unnoticeable map on the wall.
Upon a closer look, I noticed that some parts of the map
where dark, some parts were colorful.
And it wasn’t because it marked oceans or countries...

WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD WANT SUCH A WEIRD MAP?
After brushing my fingers through the surface I realised that it was scratchable. Travellers (just like me) could literally scratch off the places they’ve visited and create new goals to travel more.
So that the map could be lighter and lighter.
And the number of places you’ve been to - higher and higher.
With your understanding of the world - broader and broader.

I HAD TO HAVE ONE.
When I came back to Lithuania I started searching for similar maps for my very own family.
But all of the maps I found were either imported and bad quality or not very detailed. Really, they were like a sad knock-off of a real world map. For example, if I wanted to scratch off Texas - I would have to absolutely NAIL the location on the map because it just wasn’t marked. And don’t even get me started on the amount of missed islands on the other maps.

ABSURD.
Out of that frustration I decided to create my very own maps - ones that me and you could actually be proud of.

MADE FOR TRAVELLERS, BY TRAVELLERS
This simple philosophy has been the backbone of everything we do here at JourneyMap.
No cutting corners or sacrificing quality materials in order to save a couple of bucks.
Long ago, we realised, that every little detail of the earth, for each traveller, is more important than the other.

Maybe that’s why we’re the only manufacturer of scratchable maps that have detailed and geographically accurate mountain tops, rivers, lakes, islands, regions and states.

And maybe that’s why our maps don’t break even after 5 or 10 years after being sold. By combining the highest quality materials, top printing technology and a simple philosophy we are able to deliver maps, that you wouldn’t be afraid to give to your best friends, colleagues or family members as gifts.
Because every traveller has a different story.
And those stories come into a single journey.

So save it in a JourneyMap.
