Glossary | Maps | General | Material

Maps can be made of different materials, depending on their purpose and desired appearance.

More information:

Aludibond

Ideal for maps that will be exposed to the elements

Cork

Cork is an excellent material for world and country maps, as markers can be attached directly to the map.

Metal

Metal maps can be individualised with magnetic pins.

Plexiglass

Maps printed under plexiglass have a particularly bright, colour-fast image.

Rigid foam

Robust maps for marking with pins.

Textile

Some maps are printed onto fabric, thereby, depending on the fabric type, giving the image an antique or vintage style.
