I was a little worry that it was going to be so small since i didn’t measured the wall. The packaging was smaller than expected, but it was actually perfect size. It wasn’t so difficult to put together either since the pieces are numbered.
I love how this wall decal bought out the idea of my son’s travel theme bedroomnow a few suggestions on putting it up easily and stressless. I cut the area numbers out without removing the back of course. And laid the ‘puzzle’ on the floor, after set up on the floor i measured to determine the middle section and still without removing the back with regular tape began with the middle section by lightly taping it in the middle of the headboard. And repeated with all the pieces by taping them all to the wall. After this step i began by removing the back on the furthest right area, i removed only a bit on the backing, folded it back and sticking only a corner or so of the first piece, then i slid the back part that is folded behind and just slid it while smoothing the sticky part onto the wall. Make sure you keep on eye on the design to assure you remove any part that needs to be lifted while you are in this process. Then just follow the same step moving to the piece on the side. It took me less then an hour to complete the entire process. There are some different tones of grey, but doesn’t really bother me.
It’s well made and arrived in good shape, etc. As other people said, i recommend cutting out all the shapes first (make sure to cut around the edges of each shape) and then taping them up with masking tape. That way you can arrange and adjust until you have it right. When time to stick, i started with the top pieces and lined up the horizontal lines as i worked down. Then added the small/end pieces last. 5-2 hours to do everything (and i wanted it to be perfect).

Comments from buyers
“Absolutely love it, Worked great to paint over to create a sharp world map on my wall!, the decal looks awesome! The problem that I have is that”
The quality of the material is totally 5 stars. The reason for the 4 stars is because some of the island and parts of countries were cut off when you peel away the sticker. Wish it was north and south america one whole piece, africa and euroasia one whole piece, australia and the small islands one whole piece, and the wordings, airplanes and hearts can be separate. It is difficult putting on a wall with 13 pieces to deal with.
I would have given 5 stars if it would have been easier to put up. Now that it is on the wall it looks awesome. Some of the continents are not in one piece and had to be matched up, which is almost impossible and even with two of us putting it up, we still got air bubbles. This is definitely a two or more person job, you could not put this up yourself. It would almost be easier if this came in one piece, except for the writing part, that can come separate. We chose to not use part of the text, but the map itself is amazing. Worth buying, but you’ll need patience.
These decals were a challenge to put up smoothly. They also seemed to shrink slightly after a day on the wall, so there’s small gaps in between the pieces. Also, the grey color varied slightly from piece to piece, so the map doesn’t look uniform. Overall, quite a few things that could be improved upon. However, the company has incredible customer service and worked hard to make me happy with my purchase. I’ve gotten lots of compliments on the decals since i’ve put them up, even with their imperfections. I would give them 5 stars if they had better quality control.
Both hubby and i love to travel and we are actually an international marriage,so this wall decal definately represents our family. The design is great and the team behind it is more than customer service oriented. They contacted me with instructions and are super friendly. The wall decal sits on wall surfice perfectly as long as u dont rush putting at on and u actually take some time assembling it.
It was easy to put up, high quality (no folding over on itself and getting stuck together) and looks exactly as the picture did.
This looks amazing i love it and i love the quote. If you have a textured wall i bought elrmers glue but now i’ve had it less than a year and it’s been peeling off and falling off. I have tried so may times to put it back on the wall that now is overstretched and it looks terrible. I did write to amazon to request a replacement or a refund. It’s beautiful but it’s cheaply made and keeps peeling off even with the spray glue.
I ordered the wall decal of the world map and its stunningly beautiful. I ordered it for my workplace to boost morale. We are a small tech start up, and we have some worldwide sales going on, but we aren’t sure whether everyone is on par with the sales which were done. So the motive was to install this world map in the break room/common room, and pin the sales wins on the map. And for now, its been looking great. The installation itself was very easy, and i did it single handedly without errors. The best thing about it is it comes of and can be repasted on the wall in case of an error.
Easy to put up, huge and looks great in my daughter’s playroom. I had an issue with a promotion code and the company was fast to respond and resolve the issue. They also followed up to make sure i received their response and to see if the product worked well for me. I will definitely order from them again.
I was really excited to put this up in my son’s room because he has been really into maps and learning about countries lately. But it didn’t look as good as i envisioned. The continents were too split up and trying to line then up was a nightmare. And then you can see the lines where they meet and it bugs me so bad. Plus the colors are not very consistent. They also forgot some parts like hawaii and new zealand and antarctica. It looks okay and is fine for a kid’s room where no one will really go look at. But i wouldn’t put it up for major display. I wish they didn’t break it up so much and had bigger pieces of vinyl for the continents and i think that would’ve made a big difference.
Overall i like it, and its a great size. Russia is a different color than the rest of it so i notice that every time i look at it. Be patient putting it up and it looks pretty good. You can see the plastic around the islands in the light, so i’m going to cut those out from the preset cut. The company reaches out to you after you buy it to check in and give you tips, which i appreciated.
I walk towards my living room and a big grin on my face and smile upon my heart breaks out when my eyes rest on this decal. Living in an apt with off-white very tall walls, was about to unnerve me. I decided that wall decals would be the perfect solution to a no option to paint issue. I rated this a 4 because it should indicate in the description that really two people are needed to make it a stress-free job. I had to climb on a stool, try to peel decal parts from the paper and accurately place on the wall. I had no idea it was going to be in so many parts. I thought unfortunately it would be one massive peel off and had pre-thought how i could easily do that. Despite the struggle to apply, it is awesomely beautiful.
Such a great value for the money. Very well made, easy to understand installation and looks great. High quality materials that seem very sturdy for long term. I was really surprised at the good quality for this price point. One minor installation point, as others have said, be sure and not have to lift or reapply the decals. Depending on your surface you are applying to, the decal could get weak with too many movements.
It took a bit of time and patience and some extra help to get this wall art up, but totally love it. Lots of compliments alreadymy advice grab a couple of helpers for a job this big, but can be done in an evening totally worth it.
When i received it i was really concern about this puzzle. But actually it was really easy to settup.I didnt even used a ruler or anything just followed the numbers and the picture. I love it and i love is not small. Its beautifull in my living room.
Its effect for the wall behind our 8 ft couch. The pieces fit together nicely and it went on easy. I decided i wanted to keep this when we move so i put it on a canvas print and matte mod podged over it. I can’t give this enough stars.
All in all, i really like this. I do agree with some of the others that some of the pages have a slightly different shade but it’s not really all that noticeable on mine. I was able to do this by myself but it was challenging to get some of the bigger pieces to line up when working alone. I laid it out on the ground first so i could see how to put it up so that it would be centered with the wall. I did take another reviewers advice and cut out the bigger pieces for easy layout prior to putting up. For the price, you really can’t go wrong.
Really nice grey color and the detail looks great. (oh and the quote isn’t connected to anything so you don’t have to hang that if you don’t want to)two notes for caution:1) this comes in several pieces (9 or so) and is fairly easy to mess up if you try to peel and stick by yourself. Also you kind of have to guestimate the distances/ placement of the continents. Not a big deal to some but i thought i’d make a note. 2) i gave this a shot on my lightly textured walls and its already peeling several days after install. Just be forewarned when they say smooth surfaces it doesn’t just mean mostly flat. All in all not bad for 25-ish bucks.
Although it was a lot of work, and took me 5 hours to put up. I love this decal, and it makes a great focal point for my travel wall. I would recommend this to any avid traveleras a pointer. Something that helped me a lot, is that some of the pieces i actually separated into 2 pieces so that it was easier to apply.
So, from 8 or more feet away, the decal looks awesome. The problem that i have is that, the decals are cut in. If they were cut between continents, or in places that the seams would be difficult to see, i’d be giving a 5 star review right now. When we put the decal up, we had the seams lined up perfectly and it looked awesome. But, after only a day, the decal ‘settled’ and now there is a very slight gap between the pieces. From 6 feet away, you can’t even notice it. However, up close, it is very noticeable. To be fair, i disagree with most of the negative reviews on here. If applied correctly, it will not fall off of the wall.
Followed the directions accordingly. Sticker comes undone from time to time, have to press on it to get it to stick again. Could be the heat felt in the house(?). The stickers also did not line up correctly, no matter how i did it. Specifically the russia and africa sticker. I could not get it to line up with the other sides. One side lined up, but then looked really skewed on the others. Either way, you can tell where these stickers did not line up. Have had it up and it seems to be shrinking (again it gets hot in my house), so perhaps it does not fare well in warm environments. Have had it up for about 1 month now, and it does not look like the picture 100% (a 90% match to the picture), mainly because of the ill fitting continents. Really love the actual map and the color. The color is just like the in the picture.
This was a bit of a challenge to hang. But certainly for the result, worth it. I get so many compliments from this. I vacation rental this house and set it up for ‘travelers’. Everyone comments on how cute it is.
