Easy installation of the magnetic wooden world map XL
To create a floating effect on the wall, the wooden world map XL is supplied with spacers about 1 cm thick. Of course you will also receive an installation instruction, so everyone can place the map on the wall with ease. Using the included template, you’ll know exactly where to attach which part to the wall. This can be done with screws and/or mounting adhesive. You also get the necessary screws and plugs. If you want to attach the parts directly to the wall, you can do that too. This can be done with double-sided tape or mounting kit / mounting adhesive. Just know that the tape just doesn’t hold so well on a wall with structure.
Equipped with 10 neodymium magnets, extra magnets can be ordered too.
Ten magnets are included with the wooden world map. These are extra strong neodymium magnets that stick well to your world map. You can even attach a photo of, for example, your most beautiful trip, onto your world map. If ten magnets are not enough, you can always order extra magnets. You can find them here. Please note that the common tourist magnets aren’t strong enough to stay stuck on your world map. If you still want to use them, put extra neodymium disc magnets in between. Feel free to contact us if you want to know more about this.

Frequently asked questions
How do I install the wooden world map onto the wall?
With the world map you will receive a live size poster with instructions on how to attach the various parts onto the wall.
The poster is attached to the wall with masking tape on the spot where you would like your world map to be. With the aid of a level you can check if the poster is perfectly straight. On the poster, each continent or island has markings for where you place the spacers onto the wall. The markings are already cut in the poster, so the exact spot where the parts go is easily determined.
With the world map you will receive a set of spacers in different sizes, marked with a numbercode corresponding to the numbers on the poster. You can either attach the larger spacers onto the wall by drilling holes or by gluing them with a mounting adhesive. The latter works well on walls with a smooth finish or wallpaper. The smaller spacers are glued to the wall with mounting adhesive. Let the spacers dry well before gluing the continents and islands onto them with mounting adhesive.
TIP 1: It is advisable to use masking tape on the parts to hold them in place while the adhesive is drying. After a few hours, when you are sure the adhesive is set, you can gently remove the tape again.
TIP 2: If you wish to install the world map without the spacers, you can place the continents and islands directly onto the wall with mounting adhesive. If you have a wall with a smooth finish, you can also use doublesided adhesive tape. This can easily be removed, but is less stable than mounting adhesive and therefore not advisable on walls with a rough finish.
