I am beyond impressed with the way the map turned out , not to mention the thrill in Zach's eyes when he saw himself in the map.
The map came safe packed in a tube with thicker cellophane wrapped around it . As well they did not tape on your actual map to keep it closed, there was a cardboard wrap to keep your beautiful personalized World map intact.
We will take Zach's bird eye view of his map then I will explain in more detail.

What caught his eye first and what sparked shocked excitement was seeing his face on the map . I showed him all 3 spots he was featured in . It was such an endearing sweet moment to share. The fact that the map has a picture representing all the World is so amazing . The best part was telling him he could go to any place in the World he wanted . The map helped spark an opening to the World and the differences.
Some specs: The map is made from quality profession Epson picture paper. You are asked to send 3 high resolution pictures to be put in the slots. Though if you do not send 3 they will put in drawn pictures for you. To add to this I also had 2 of my pictures at a low resolution and okay ed the map anyway , as even with the low res, it turned out beautifully.
I am beyond impressed really .
The border is made of Passport Stamps a great touch to accent the map.
The map brings The World to life . I love how it is through a child's eyes as well, as the World is expressed through photos.
Such a stunning visual keepsake art piece for any room.
The only thing I would improve on for myself , since the lighting in our home and wall placement lack ;would be just to bold the title of map.
