The white pins match perfectly with my natural colored map, and they stay in place without falling out.
The pins are the perfect size for the map. They are exactly as described and I am very happy with them.
My advice to new customers is to buy twice as many pushpins as you think you need on one shipment to avoid our scenario where we kept buying one more, then one more, then one more and had to pay shipping each time.
We thought the map of the world would be enough but more than doubled the number of pins we needed when we realized we also needed a map of the United States to place pushpins on the places we had lived and traveled. The pins are good quality, the right size, and good color selection.
Also, you need different colors to mark places you lived as opposed to places you visited. You can also use more colors to mark places you visited as a family vs. places you visited alone.
NOTE: We don't care about color because my wife is an artist. She mixes her own colors and recolors the pushpins. They take her paint very well. You would never guess they were not the original color.
The white pins go beautifully with the natural earth map.
The pins look very beautiful on my board.
