Step 1: Set up the template on the wall

Begin by unfolding the template and cutting off the “small-island” guide. Tape the template firmly to the wall. We recommend using painter’s tape.

Use a ruler or measuring tape to ensure the map is centered on your wall. Measure from each corner up to the ceiling and make sure the map hangs parallel to the ceiling. If your ceiling is uneven, you can 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 around the edge to ensure the paper is tightly affixed to the wall.

Step 2: Pre-drill and secure the magnets

Once the paper is securely attached to the wall, you’re ready to drill holes. Use a 5 mm masonry drill bit to drill through the paper at the 5 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 dust from all 5 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. Remember also 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 backside. Place the rectangular foam pieces at the locations marked on the wood.

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

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

Step 4: Prepare the small islands for mounting

Now, 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 images on the paper.

The paper provides suggestions for how the foam pieces can be placed, along with a number for each island, in case you’re unsure where they should be hung.

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 to hang them on the wall.

Note: Your hands might get slightly blackened. This is due to soot from the laser-cut edges of the islands. It can easily be cleaned 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 onto your mobile device and zoom in on an area so you can 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 up to estimate 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 you avoid having too large or too small distances between them.
