Right. This here's a really good map. It is large, clear and colourful which I would imagine is what it's supposed to be. So far, so good. But, But, But, As someone mentioned earlier, it isn't laminated. It's fairly large at about 4'x 3' (I also cut the top row of flags away, and it does look better) and made from what I would consider to be a medium-grade paper. This means you need a large surface to look at it and as you try to unroll it, it creases easily. Not permanently as yet, but I'm now faced with trying to find a cheap-ish acrylic sheet to weld it to. Pain in the proverbial...
All is not lost however, as once suitably mounted it's going to look great on my study wall encased in it's own sandwich of 2 x 2mm acrylic sheets with a nice chrome 'stand-out' fastener holding each corner in place. The 'stand-out' fastener will hold the sandwich 6mm clear of the wall thus creating as impression of style, attention to detail, virtual 3D, creativity and general all-round poshness.
Had it been laminated in the first place it would have saved me all the above trouble and thus would have received 5*s. C'est l'guerre...
