Step 1: Set up the templates on the wall

Begin by unfolding both templates and cut off the “small-island” guide. Attach the Part 1 template to the wall using painter’s tape, as this is recommended.

Use a ruler or measuring tape to ensure that the map is centered on the wall. Measure the distance from each of the corners up to the ceiling and make sure that the map hangs parallel to the ceiling. If your ceiling is uneven, you may want to use a level along the paper to ensure the map hangs straight.

Once the paper is correctly positioned, make sure it is stretched out as much as possible. Add more tape all the way around the edge to ensure the paper is tightly affixed to the wall.

Now, you should hang up Part 2 on top of Part 1. Align the edge of the paper with the marked lines on Part 1. When the paper is correctly hung, and you can see that the illustrations align, tape Part 2 firmly to the wall. Also, remember to stretch out Part 2 as much as possible.

Step 2: Pre-drill and secure the magnets

Once the paper is attached to the wall, you are ready to drill holes. Use a 5 mm masonry drill bit to drill through the paper at the 8 marked holes. (Use the supplied wall plugs to gauge how deep you should drill).

After drilling all the holes, you can remove the template (save it for later).

Use a vacuum cleaner to remove the dust from all 8 holes. We also recommend vacuuming the floor for dust and cleaning the wall around the holes now.

Now you can insert the wall plugs into the holes and screw the magnets in place. Remember to place a black foam ring between the magnet and the wall. Screw the magnet until it can no longer rotate freely. Be careful not to overtighten, as neodymium magnets can easily break.

Note: If you have a wall that does not require wall plugs, you can poke holes through the template, remove it, and then screw the magnets directly into the wall. Also, remember to place the black foam rings between the magnet and the wall.

Step 3: Hang up the first parts

Now you are almost ready to hang the first parts. Turn Eurasia, Africa, North America, Australia, and Greenland over on a table so you can see the back. Place the rectangular foam pieces at the spots marked on the wood.

Now you can hang these 5 parts on the wall. Hang them so that the magnet hits approximately the middle of the metal plate on the map.

Next, use the cardboard templates to adjust the distance between the parts. We recommend starting with Eurasia. Place cardboard template 4 at the marked location (refer to the paper template). When number 4 is vertical, Eurasia is correctly positioned. Now you can adjust Australia to match against the template. Afterward, you can use cardboard template 3 to adjust Greenland. Then, you can use cardboard template 2 to adjust North America. Finally, use cardboard template 1 to adjust South America and place the hanging compass in position with foam tape.

Step 4: Prepare the small islands for mounting

Now you need to use the piece of the template that you cut off in step 1. Turn the two sheets with small islands over on a table so you can see the backside. You should have the wooden islands and matching pictures on the paper.

The paper provides a suggestion for how the foam pieces can be positioned, as well as a number for each island if you are unsure where they should be placed.

Place all the foam tape pieces on the wooden islands as indicated on the paper. We recommend starting with the largest foam tape pieces and then working down to the smallest.

Turn the sheet over again and gently press out the islands by pushing from the front side. Avoid using your nails as this can leave marks. For some of the smallest islands, it might be beneficial to use a thin tool to push from the back. Ensure to place the islands as they were on the sheet if you plan to use the numbers for mounting them on the wall.

Note: Your hands might get slightly blackened. This is due to the soot from the laser-cut edges of the islands. It can easily be wiped off with a damp cloth if it gets on the table or the front of the islands.

Step 5: Place the small islands on the map

Now, it’s time to place the small islands on the wall, and you have two options.

Option 1 (not recommended if you plan to move your map in the future and want to save the template): Cut out areas from your paper template so you can hold a piece of paper in one hand to see how an island should be positioned while you place it with your other hand.

Option 2: Download the image below to your mobile device and zoom in on an area to see where an island should be placed.

Regardless of whether you choose option 1 or 2, the next steps are the same. Hold your mobile or piece of paper up side by side with the island you are trying to place. Use the islands you have already set to gauge how to hang the next island.

We recommend that you start with the islands that are closest to the parts you hung on the wall in step 3 and then work your way out from there. This approach helps avoid having too large or too small distances between them.
