HISTORY

The concept of “Scratchable World Map Posters” has been around for about ten years, but it became more popular the past couple of years.

This product now comes in various sizes, colors and paper quality. However, you’ll notice that many retailers sell the exact same map, simply customizing it with their own logo.

Out of several samples we tested, we were disappointed by the quality of these maps (poor scratching, inaccurate borders, unreadable fonts, flashy discordant colors) which is why we thought we would create our own.

OUR STORY

Azuigo Stef Thais

Two years ago, when we discovered what a Scratch Map was, we loved the concept and wanted to buy one.  But of all the Maps out there, we couldn’t find one we really liked in terms of design, colors and quality. This is when my partner and I decided to create our own.

Being an independent Graphic Designer and a travel enthusiast, I was excited and up for the challenge. Our goal was to create an “elegant map“, with precise borders, clear fonts and beautiful, harmonious colors.

It took us several months to create the map layout, including all the landmark icons at the bottom that we drew one by one.

Our supplier was then carefully selected through a meticulous process to guarantee the best possible quality.

We invite you to learn more about our completely unique Scratch Off World map here.
