  • General

    • What is the best way to scrape off the layer?
      A metallic object without sharp edges like a round coin is the best choice for the DELUXE Scrape Map©. We used high quality laminated paper that is scratch resistant with normal use. We recommend to scrape the layer off gentle with care. When you use a metal object with sharp edges or when you use a lot of pressure it may damage the finish.
    • What’s the best way to keep my Scrape Map in shape?
      For most people this Scrape Map is a gadget that will stay with you for years. If you intend to move your Map from time to time we recommend to frame your map. The measurements of the Map are a standard poster size (91,5cm x 61cm) so you don’t need to go to an expensive framer, just surf on the Internet to choose a beautiful frame to keep your Scrape Map in the best shape.
    • How can I personalize the Scrape Map?
      By scraping off the places you’ve visited, you can see in a glance where you’ve been, so it becomes personalized to your travels. There is also a bucket list included, that you can fill in yourself and tick off. We recommend to us a pencil so you can re-use the bucket list over and over. It’s also fun to add your own pictures and ticket around the map, feel free to add whatever you like to make it your personal travel-artwork and re-live all your memories. And don’t forget to send us a picture of it!
    • I’ve Scraped off the wrong place, can I repair that?
      Once the layer is scraped off it cannot be sticked back. To prevent this, we marked all countries and even the capitals so the chance that this will happen is minimal.
    • I want to see how the Scrape Map looks like under the layer, is there a preview where I can see that?
      We can understand that you are curious how the map looks when everything is scraped off. Lots of hidden details are there to be discovered. We believe it is a lot more fun to keep this a secret so we decided not to reveal the whole ‘unscraped’ map on our website. But if you can’t handle your curiosity, just drop us an email and we will show you the hidden parts.
    • There is a city I’ve visited that’s not marked on the map, why not?
      We designed the map as a cool gadget, and tried to make it as accurate as possible. The size of this map is large so even tiny islands and lots of details are included on the map. However the production process of this 5 layered map is complicated and we are limited to the size of the individual countries, so not all capital names and cities fit in. We are always open for suggestions so feel free to leave your feed back to improve this map.
    • What materials did you use for the DELUXE Scrape Map?
      Quality is very important to us so we only used the best materials. The DELUXE Scrape Map© is printed on luxurious thick paper, all over coated with scratch resistant laminate for the ultimate protection. We also used local spot-shine effects to give the map an even more luxurious look and feel. For the finishing touch we covered the scrape layer with a sophisticated cool grey colour.
    • Can you frame the Scrape Map?
      Yes, very easy since the size is a ‘standard’ large poster size.
    • What size is the Scrape Map?
      This large map has a size of 91,6cm x 61cm.
    • Are there other Scrape Maps?
      Not yet but we are working on it! We are planning to bring out a version from Europe and individual countries. If you have places you think we should create a map for feel free to email your suggestion here.
    • This Scrape Map is gorgeous but I want one 100% personalized with my pictures, can you do that?
      Yes we can however…. we can’t make single custom made maps but we do create maps with customized details for orders of 1,000 pieces or more, for example for companies who want their branches or names marked on the map. If you would like to discuss having a run of custom maps made please send us an email here.
