What does the name BOLD TUESDAY mean?
It means that every day is a good day to start an adventure. Even Tuesday.
Actually we chose Tuesday because that’s the only day in the week without a thing. You know there's “Blue Monday”, “Wanderlust Wednesday”, “Throwback Thursday”, “Friyay” etc. But nothing with Tuesday. Nada. So we gave it a thing. And Bold as in be bold and go. Go see the world and stuff. So here you have it - Bold Tuesday.
Who designs these awesome products?
We. We. We. All designs are made by us. We’ve worked really hard to create these unique (and awesome, as you just said) products. Read more about our team and designers here.
How many countries are in the world?
That’s a tough one. And we could argue about it for days as there isn’t one correct answer. Unfortunately. You know maps and territories are political, so it really depends where do you stand. We’ve included the 193 members of the UN, the two UN observers (Palestine and Vatican City), and Kosovo to equal 196 countries on our products.
Are the maps and posters accurate?
We try to be as accurate as possible, but we are designers, not cartographers. And the maps are our interpretation with an emphasis on visual aesthetics. They do look good, don’t they? So our maps might not entirely replace the traditional scientifically precise geographic ones, but they are accurate enough to keep track of your travels. And get inspired to explore some more.
Are these posters sustainably produced?
All the paper posters use sustainably sourced (FSC) papers, clean printing processes and recycled tubes. Plus we print all of our posters right here in Estonia!
How do I take care of my poster?
Good question. Here’s what you should do:
- Keep your poster out of direct sunlight, away from heat sources and humidity.
- Use a dry cloth to remove dust. And operate with CLEAN HANDS only.
- If your poster wants to curl up at first, give it some time and leave to flatten under weight for a few days. Or carefully, really carefully wrap it around the package tube in the opposite direction of curling and attach with this slip.
- Smile and say nice things to it. The posters love it. :)
Do you make custom products?
Yes. Why not! Our minimum quantity starts with 100 pieces. So if you want a special poster for a bigger event or as gift to your clients, shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’d love to discuss it with you.
Which poster should I get for my husband / grandchild / girlfriend etc?
List of Countries is our most universal poster and suits every home. It’s a great gift for everybody, for your travel-holic friends or just interior design lovers. It is also perfect for teaching kids about geography and the size of countries. Men usually like our darker posters, for example Go World sticker map or Find it World word-puzzle poster. Kids love our Color World map, because they can draw and write on it!
Making a payment:
What kind of payment methods can I use?
Smiles, hugs and good words. Hah, we wish the world would work like that. Actually any of the following is fine: MasterCard, Visa, PayPal, Apple Pay.
Our store currency is Euro (EUR).
Will I have to pay any duties and taxes on top of my order?

Product specific questions:
What’s special about List of Countries poster?
On this poster all the countries are listed by area, from biggest to smallest. This way you can see the relative size of each country compared to another. Most world maps use Mercator Projection, but it distorts the size of countries as the latitude increases from the Equator to the poles. Making landmasses near the North and South Pole such as Greenland and Antarctica appear much larger than they actually are, relative to landmasses near the equator such as Central Africa. No distortions on List of Countries poster, only true sizes!
Why Some areas are "missing"?
Why is there no Greenland?
We have listed all the countries with their mainland only. Greenland belongs to Denmark and we decided to keep the list as clear as possible, so we took the total area of countries with their oversea territories which were close to the mainland and listed these from biggest to smallest.
Beside Greenland we have excluded Antarctica, Western Sahara and some other territories belonging to certain countries, but scattered around the world. Antarctica isn’t a country and Western Sahara is disputed territory with no clear political status. If we added all of them then this poster would have to be several times bigger!
Why is there no Scotland, England, Wales or Northern Ireland?
Because Scotland, England, Wales, and Northern Ireland are not entirely independent countries but are four somewhat autonomous regions which are part of the country known as the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland or just United Kingdom for short. Everything revolving around countries and maps is always a bit complicated and it’s difficult to have one correct answer that will satisfy everyone. Which is why there will always be differences of opinions, but we’ve decided to go with this option regarding the UK.
Why is there no Hawaii?
Because it’s just so far away from the mainland, we decided not to distort the map to fit it in and didn’t depict it on the List of Countries poster.
On your collective list of all the countries in the world you guys forgot about Taiwan!
Maps and territories are political, so everything really depends on where you stand. We’ve decided to include the 193 members of the UN, the two UN observers (Palestine and Vatican City), and Kosovo to equal 196 countries on our products. According to UN Taiwan is not a separate country but is part of the Republic of China, which is why it's not featured on our list either. Everything revolving around countries and maps is always a bit complicated and it's difficult to have one correct answer that will satisfy everyone. Which is why there will always be differences of opinions.
Why can’t I see any countries, do I have to stick them on?
It’s a black sticker map where you peel off visited countries!
At first it’s all black, but if you look closer then you see the lines of different countries. The more countries you visit, the whiter and more personalised your map becomes.
PS! Make sure to peel carefully, otherwise the borders between the countries might come off.
I only visited Moscow, do I have to peel off whole Russia?
Yes. We’ve thought about separating it into oblasts, but that would make the map too confusing. Then we’d also have to separate the USA into states and France into different regions etc. It would go on and on and eventually you wouldn’t recognize your world map.
PS! If you want to only mark one city or region, get our "Color World” map instead!
Can I write on it?
No, because it’s made of silicone paper and ink doesn’t stay on it. If you want to write on your poster, you should get the "Color World" map.
How do I hang it on the wall?
Can you really find all the countries?
Yes! We’ve hidden all 196 countries on this poster. They run from left to right and top to bottom (nothing diagonal or backwards - we tested and it proved way too difficult).
How do I use it?
Use pencils, crayons, markers to color the countries on your Color World map, write or draw on it. You can use white pencils to write on the black part of your map as well. Use the legend on the bottom to mark which color goes for which family member. Use different patterns, arrows, signs etc to mark how and where exactly you travelled to. Get creative with your map!
