Finding the Right Black and Gold Scratch MapWith many scratch maps on the market, you have a lot of choices when it comes to finding a scratch map that will fit your style and existing decor. Like myself, many people love the look of black and gold map. Black and gold maps look clean, classy, and stylish. This color scheme matches well with neutral colors and modern decor. I have recently had a chance to get a close look at the Global Zoom’s (Black and Gold) Journey Map and here is what I have found.
Global Zoom’s (Black and Gold) Journey Map ReviewThe Global Zoom Journey Map has a sharp contrast of shiny black oceans and gold landmasses. The labeling of the oceans and other accents are a shade of gray. This design touch has an effect of making the map feel less cluttered without sacrificing important details.
I love the black and gold color scheme. So does Global Zoom deliver? The answer is an absolute YES!
What is Included With My Scratch Map?Also included with the Journey Map are a scratching tool, soft cleaning cloth, and a protective tube. The scratching tool shares a shape of a guitar pick, but it is not. The scratching tool is much thicker and has all the right curves and grooves to provide the user with a comfortable and firm grip. The heavy 250gsm laminated glossy paper is sturdy and durable. The heavy paper is essential for two reasons.
- The weight and gloss of the paper will help to ensure that when you scratch off the foil the map underneath doesn’t get damaged.
- Secondly, the weight of the paper allows the map to hold its shape and not sag or wrinkle.
Built-in Bucket ListGlobal Zoom also has also added a bucket list of popular destinations divided into two categories, Iconic of the World (Iconic Landmarks) and Wonders of the World Wonders Of The World (New Seven Wonders of the World). The list of destinations is illustrated with scratchable pictures that are designed into quarter size circles.

State By State ScratchingThe Journey Map has also made it convenient to track your travels state by state or province by province by outlining the state and provincial lines in Canada, Australia and the United States. State and provincial borders are a fantastic feature for people who do most of their traveling in their own backyard. Having the state and provincial borders give depth to the track and scratch experience of a scratch map.
