How to frame a push pin world map in 3 easy steps!

Supplies you will need:

The quickest and easiest method to adhere your map to the foam core is with double-sided tape. We actually like double sided carpet tape for it’s strength in use with canvas, but you can use whatever you like, just don’t use the thick foam tape, you’ll see it through the map and it doesn’t allow for flat laying against the board. Here is a great option for XFasten Double Sided Carpet Tape

Step one:

  • Lay out your map and allow to flatten
    Using a paper weight or some other heavy object will assist with this process
  • Place the double sided tape adhesive along the top and bottom of the foam core
    You don’t need to be right on the edge of the foam core. We place it about 1/2 inch in from the edge

Step two:

  • Using weights to ensure accuracy, lay the map evenly on the foam core checking that the edges are the same all the way around.
