Frequently Asked Questions
I want to scratch the foil off where I’ve been but I’m not sure how to?
Well, a blunt metallic object like a coin is the best choice for all maps that our printed on gloss paper. The Deluxe Scratch Map™, Gourmet Scratch Map™ and Scratch Globe however are all printed on matte paper, which requires a bit of extra care – so for best results we recommend using an eraser as metal can sometimes damage the finish.
I’ve scratched off somewhere I’ve never been by accident, what do I do?
Unfortunately there’s no way to stick foil back on so you’ll have to book a trip there, it would be wrong to lie.
Scratch Map® posters are great, I want to keep track of my travels for years to come, but what if I want to move house? What’s the best way to look after my Scratch Map?
It’s true, our maps are pretty cool, and it takes a while to scratch the whole world off, so if you think you might want to move your map from time to time we recommend taking it to a professional framers and having it mounted. Just make sure the framer uses a cold technique, if they use heat it will damage the foil layer – and that’s basically the best bit.
I’m a framer and someone has asked me to mount one of your maps for them, what technique would you recommend?
We recommend using cold press techniques only, as heat will damage the map.
I live in a country that you don’t ship to, how can I buy a map?
Customs can be a pain in some countries so we can’t ship everywhere yet, check here for our shipping destinations. If your location isn’t on the list get in touch with us here. We might be able to point you in the direction of a shop in your vicinity.
There is a place I’ve been to that’s not on the map, what the hell?
We designed the map as a fun gift, and while we want it to be as accurate as possible, the way the foil is printed onto the map is complicated and can’t handle small areas, plus in the design process some text just wouldn’t fit in. We do review the designs from time to time and bring out versions like Scratch Map® USA with more detail, so if you have places you think we should create a map for feel free to email your suggestions here.
Scratch Maps are so awesome I want one custom made, can you do that?
Yes and no. Unfortunately we can’t make one off’s or small runs but we do create custom designs for orders of 5,000 units or more. If you would like to discuss having a run of custom maps made please send us an email.
