    I like the letterpressed worldmap and I am very happy with it. Shipment worked fine and I picked up the parcel in good condition at German customs. Quality of paper is good, no reason to complain. I've already prepared the map with pins for all the destinations in the world, which I've already visited - so the map is an eyecatcher in my flat :-) Thanks to designahoy for the good handling. Would make the purchase again.

    Paper is very flimsy. Cannot see the letterpress details. Very odd shape. Dissapointed.

    I'm sorry to hear that you are not happy with the map. However, I’m a bit confused with your comments. The paper is in no way flimsy. It’s printed on a thick 118 lb cover stock. The 20 x 29” dimensions are clearly stated in the item details. If those were not the dimensions you wanted, I’m not sure why you order the map in the first place? The letterpress printing is high-quality. I'm confident all the photos show a true depiction of the print and quality.
