Both scratch maps have tube sizes, which are suitable for travelers to carry. However, the L Brand World scratches are larger and heavier than the our scratches. It may be more difficult to put it in a backpack or suitcase. The scratch map should be light and compact, so the our scratch map is more suitable for traveling around the world. In addition, L Brand’s map is too large to fit in an IKEA frame, nor can it be hung on the wall. On the other hand, our sketches map are designed in frame size so that you can hang the map as decoration.

The World Scratch Map Pack provides free scratches, while L Brand's maps need to be scratched with coins. The advantage of using scratches is that they will not leave scratches. You can clearly see the hidden color pictures.


B Brand and L Brand

In addition to the L Brand world scratch map, we also found a B Brand world scratch map, which is only half the size of L Brand. The design of B Brand is very similar to that of L Brand, but the pipe diameter is smaller. Some white characters cannot be seen clearly, and the print quality is not satisfactory. After scratching the map with the coin, we can see obvious scratches, which are not found on the world scratch map. One of the important criteria of a scratch map is that it needs to be easily scratched without leaving a mark. Neither L Brand nor this brand's scratch map meets this standard. This is why the simple scratch formula is applied to the map.

Let's go back to L Brand and. When we tried to unpack the L Brand map, it was difficult to open the lid to take out the map. The texture of the scratch map is good, but it has a strong plastic smell. For the Our World sketch, it is much easier to take out the map, and the texture of the map is also very good.

After expanding the world scratch map, we will find that the tones of the two scratch maps are very different. For L Brand, this map is very informative, with many details: the height of the continent, the names of the mountains and oceans, the different scales, etc. Countries, cities, mountain shadows, and state outlines are all highlighted on the map. This looks professional, but these details make the map too complicated and a bit messy. Especially those small white characters close to the mainland and capitals of various countries were pointed out.
