Trying to decide between a push pin map and a poster map? Here’s how to narrow it down:

Pin Board Map

Conquest Map Push Pin Map

Our push pin travel maps are printed on premium stretched canvas and wrapped around an internal wood frame. There is a durable ½” layer of eco-friendly wood fiber pin board in between this internal piece and the map print, so that when you place pins, they stay snugly in place. This option is ideal for travel enthusiasts or anyone planning their bucket list adventures!

Features

  • Pins stay in place when pushed into the durable ½” wood fiber pin board. Enjoy limitless pinning!
  • Most major cities are labeled using up-to-date map data.
  • You can personalize the legend to make the map uniquely yours.
  • Made with fade-resistant ink to last for years to come (just keep out of direct sunlight!)
  • Printed on premium-quality stretched canvas.
  • Each map is handmade in the USA, so you can expect a high quality product that is not mass-produced.
  • Ready-to-hang with all hardware included (just need a hammer!)
  • You have the option to order it pre-framed in a decorative solid wood frame.

Why Choose Me?

  • You want to track your past travel experiences and commemorate your favorite getaways.
  • You hope to inspire and plan future trips to come.
  • You want to keep your bucket list top-of-mind, whether it’s across the country or across the world!

Poster Map

Conquest Map Psoter

Our poster maps are a budget-friendly alternative to our push pin maps. These matte paper prints feature the same unique map designs as our signature push pin maps. While poster travel maps do not come with pins or a frame, you are free to add your own frame, track your travels using "pin" stickers, or DIY your own push pin map!

Features

  • A budget-friendly option featuring the same unique designs.
  • All major cities are labeled using up-to-date map data.
  • You can personalize the legend to make the map uniquely yours.
  • Printed on heavy and durable matte paper. They do not come laminated.
  • Made with fade resistant ink to last for years to come (just keep out of direct sunlight!)
  • Though they don’t allow for pinning, they are a gorgeous and unique piece of travel-inspired art.

NOTE: While we carry frames for our push pin maps, we do not offer frames for poster maps at this time. (arttoframe.com is a great resource if you do wish to frame your poster map!)

Why Choose Me?

  • You want to display your map simply as a piece of artwork.
  • You’d like to utilize it as an educational tool for at-home or classroom learning.
  • You have an idea for a fun DIY project -- think decoupage, laminating or making your own push pin map. The possibilities are endless!

What size do I need?

The larger the map, the more pins you can fit without looking cluttered. And the better you can see the city labels!

  • A 24” x 16” map is ideal for pinning countries or states.
  • A 36” x 24” map is ideal for pinning countries, states and a moderate amount of cities.
  • A 48” x 32” single panel map is Ideal for pinning cities.
  • A 54” x 36” 3-panel map is ideal for pinning lots of cities.

Now let’s take a look at how much space you have in the room you want to feature the map.

  • A 54” x 36” 3-panel or 48” x 32” single panel map looks great in large areas such as family rooms and company offices. It makes a statement and becomes the talking point of the room.
  • A 36” x 24” map makes a powerful impact on a mantel, in a home office, or in a dining room.
  • A 24” x 16” map works well as part of a gallery wall or in smaller spaces like a guest room or kitchen.
