scratch-off maps

Scratch-off map is a brilliant way how to show on map places you have visited, places included in your wish-list or any other places – only limit is your own imagination! Every scratch-off map is based on precise political or administrative map, supplemented with flags or local coat of arms. Find the country or local municipality on the map and scratch off the golden colour layer. Every map is packaged in a cardboard tube of special design and can be perfectly used as a great gift. Our experience and geographical knowledges make our scratch-off maps adaptable for any language and might be privately labeled. We have done scratch-off map “World” in several languages and Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Sweden, Norway and Poland scratch-off maps in their native languages.

 

map puzzles

The first jigsaw puzzle ever was made in 1760 by engraver and cartographer John Spilsbury from London. He took one of his maps and sawn-off outlines of countries from wooden slab. Now technologies are different, but the main idea have remained the same – to learn geography through active playing. For little-ones our Nature puzzle with wild animals is the most suitable. Very special is our round-shaped puzzles – each of them represents one of the hemispheres with its typical wild animals. Real “puzzle gourmands” enjoy our World map puzzle and relief map puzzles of countries – each consisting of 1500 pieces. Find our puzzles here!

SCRATCH-OFF MAPS In POLISH

“As I remember from my school times, wall maps were always used to teach me geography and different processes all around the world. Nowadays wall maps can fulfil two functions – to be a great source of information and wonderful element of interior as well. Scratch-off maps embody both qualities. Jāņa sēta Map publishers were the first ones who offered to create scratch-off maps of the World, Europe and Poland in our native language-Polish. Thereby we can offer new products for passionate travelers – whether they are ready to discover remote places over the world or get to know better their own country.”
