Trip Map World Review: The Best Push Pin World Map for Travellers

Trip Map World Review: The Best Push Pin World Map for Travellers

I was delighted to be contacted by Trip Map World and jumped at the opportunity to review their incredible push-pin large map.

The luxury canvas push pin wall maps are lovingly handmade in Lithuania by a small team headed by Marta and Paulius and are the perfect way to identify all the amazing places you have visited or are still on your bucket list waiting to be explored.

Push Pin Travel Map

I am amazed at how many different options of colour palettes and board sizes Trip Map World offers. Thirty-one different colourways are available for the world map, which is incredible.

Who would have thought that so many different looks could be applied to one map?

Choose between four different maps: the World map, the Europe map, the USA map and the brand new UK and Ireland map, and countless personalization options ranging from names, logos and icons. The endless options allow you to match your push pin board with pins to your home decor.

World, Europe and USA Maps are available in a landscape aspect and come in four dimensions:

  • Small (85×60 cm / 33.4×23.6 in)
  • Medium (100×70 cm / 39.3×27.5 in)
  • Large (120×80 cm / 47.2×31.5 in)
  • Extra Large (150×100 cm / 59×39.3 in)

UK and Ireland Maps are offered in a portrait aspect with the same dimensions.

Each map comes with 100 pins of your colour choice, but should you require more, there are 16 pin colours available to buy online.

My Push Pin World Travel Map

I was originally asked to review the newly launched UK and Ireland Map. However, I felt that as I am from the UK and have visited just about everywhere within it, I wanted the world map. This would allow me to focus on pinning my past international travels in addition to new and exciting places I want to visit in the future.

I opted for Trip Map World’s push pin colourful, detailed large map as I loved its subtle pastel colours and the fact that the countries detailed in blue matched my logo.

When my world map arrived, I was so excited, firstly by the size of the package being carried tentatively down the drive by the delivery man and also that so much attention had been made to ensure it arrived in perfect condition from Lithuania to the UK!

I eagerly unwrapped my World Push Pin Travel Map and gazed at its beautiful colours and superior quality. This wasn’t just a wall map; this was a statement piece!

Quality and Detail of the World Map

The high-quality textured canvas is mounted on a foam-backed lightweight frame and printed using certified Canon ink, meaning the map will not yellow or fade over time.

Country names are written in English, with city names written in the language of that country adding to the appeal.

There are hooks for hanging on the right and left corners of the frame already attached for ease. It only took me about 10 minutes to hang up (with help from hubby!), but there is also an online guide to help you.

Colourful Trip Map Pins

Along with my world map came three pots of coloured push pins (100 in each). A personal handwritten card was included making it clear that the map had been made with care specifically for me.

With a range of coloured pins to choose from, you can customise your map in any way you choose. I chose three pin colours; white (to match my furniture), blue (to match my logo), and rose gold for a little glamour.

I then used my white push pins for capital cities, blue for towns and rose gold for places I still want to visit.

I now have a detailed wall map that makes me smile whenever I pass it.

Unique Trip Map Personalization

And the “pièce de résistance” is that my website name – Where Angie Wanders – has been printed in the left-hand corner of the map. It has been printed in my logo colour of blue and is perfect.

I finally have a personalized world map, something I have wanted for a long time.

A map is a travel record of your life; mine holds over 35 years of travel experiences.

Everything is documented on my map, from a road trip in South Africa to an idyllic stay in the Maldives!

A Push Pin Map would be perfect as a unique gift for yourself or a loved one. In fact, anyone looking for a decorative travel product to enhance their home.

I would be happy to recommend this product to anyone thinking of purchasing a Push Pin World Map of their own.

We have looked at several different map options to keep track of our travels. This looks like something I might be happy to have on display. The world map does look big enough to properly map our travels around the world. I love that you can mark cities and not just countries to keep track of places still to visit.

It has taken pride of place on my wall. I have enjoyed pinning cities and towns that I have visited along with places that are still on my wishlist.

Recently, this sort of maps got really popular - for pins, scratching and more. Also, they are always included in those 'gifts for travellers' posts that I rather dislike. And now this - something designed by a small team and made of fabric in high quality! It shows right away that this is a whole different story....albeit still the same world ;-)

Yes this one really is of high quality and made with love in a small family workshop.

This would be the type of project I start with enthusiasm but then never maintain. But I’d imagine that having a map in these times would be quite motivating and inspirational.

Hi Angie What a great idea this is, especially at this time when travel options are so limited. I've just ordered one for Christmas for an elderly relative who is no longer able to travel, but will love reliving a whole lifetime of travels with this map.

That's a lovely thought. Its so much fun pinning and then when you glance up at the map you are suddenly transported back to a point and memory in life that has filled you with joy. Which colour did you go for?
