Our kickstarter is successfully funded and almost over! Get your maps now if you have a chance, or find us elsewhere on the internet:
Hang your adventures on your wall! This map will get you trading travel stories and planning your next trip.
The Travel Tracker Map lets you scratch off where you’ve been in the world, much like the experience of scratching a lottery ticket, and reveals vibrant colors underneath each country.
This particular one is design-tastic. It’s created professionally by a team of cartographers and graphic designers and includes a special ingredient called “love” with check-in bag full of “attention to detail”
Having a conversation piece like this in your house or office makes for the type of interactions around discussing peak moments that you want to have. Pair it with a bookshelf filled with your favorite literature, a bottle of wine, and let the good conversations roll.
Don’t be selfish though. Any traveler in your life would be elated to receive this and at the Kickstarter exclusive price you can buy now and save it as future gift.
We're pretty sure this map will talk you into taking your next international trip. Just letting you know
Our original 17”x24” map is already the best scratch off world map out there. This one is even better. Check out all these goodies that make this...this!
- Easy standard frameablee size. 24" x 36”. In other words, buy-a-frame-from-Ikea and pop it in there.
- Packaging designed for gifting. Quirky triangular box where you pull an airplane to set the map free.
- Learn the world capitals. They're all on there. (What's the capital of Costa Rica?!)
- Track your adventures in the US States. All the US states are outlined, as well as Canadian Provinces, and Australian Territories.
- Get lost in the international flags. 210 world flags. Because flags are cool (and we know you want to scratch off two thingers per trip )
- Explore the deepest parts of the oceans. The bathymetry is outlined with different shades of blue to show you the water depths of the world. (Pronounced ba-symmetry. Your word of the day. )
- See your travels pop. Super colorful laminated poster so that your travels stand out from across the room.
Besides being the first to have our newest, shiniest, most platinum map yet, we’re going to cut you in on an irresistible deal. Our retail price is going to be around $59, but...
We’re going to make it available at no-brainer prices, only on Kickstarter. Smarter than lugging home rando-souvenirs and "I've been there" t-shirts.
Why join us? Because we want you to be part of our story. We want to grow and design new products with our fans. And we want more Americans to see this map everywhere and get inspired to take more international escapades.
We’re aiming to get the Travel Tracker Map Plantinum out a couple months after the holidays. Our manufacturer is already in place and we’ve produced maps like this before so with this next round we’re able to foresee and resolve any issues ahead of time
Barring any big issues with receiving and shipping we should be able to get this map to everyone in the USA within 40-60 days after receiving funding when the campaign ends on December 20th.
International shipping is a little more unpredictable and depends on the internal mail system of each country. For international buyers, please give us an extra 2-4 weeks to account for the shipping time. Since shipping price is high on a box with these dimensions, we're letting our international fans buy in sets of 4 so you can split the cost with a few friends.
How long does it take to design a map? We’re afraid to tell you because it will reveal our true nerdiness... Every country and capital is placed and adjusted manually. We spent several weeks choosing the typography and agonizing over tiny details.
It’s tedious but it’s a labor of love for our team. We’ve remapped and scaled the map into several projections ultimately picking the most ideal one that would fit in our 24x36 size and not have any weirdly large countries. Bonus points for carto-nerds if you can eyeball the base projection of this map.
Landmass Goods started as a side project making hats with maps on them on a sabbatical in South America. A couple years later, we’re working on a mission to motivate Americans to take more trips abroad.
48%* of Americans don’t even have passports yet... we can do better! We want more of us to know and feel the pulse beyond our hometown. We believe the farther you reach the more connected you become.
We’ve done this before so the risks are low. By being a backer you join a special part of our community and help us on our mission to get more Americans to be part of the greater world.
People already love our maps and the operations are squared away.
Behind The Project
If you're curious what went on the behind the scenes of the project, we created it while on the road between South America and Europe. The video was filmed in Barcelona, Spain and involved a videographer from Berlin, Dutch and Spanish models and an American director. These are the kind of adventures and experiences we want for you - Map up!

Risks and challenges
We’ve run into trouble with international customs before which has slowed us down. Right after Christmas is also a wild-and-crazy-kids prime time season so there is certainly a possibility that shipping could delay us.
There is also the chance that the Travel Tracker Map Platinum could be funded beyond our expectations and producing a huge amount may involve additional time in quality control.
On the upside, we've done this before! You're not funding a science experiment.
We’re committed to Landmass Goods and its mission so we’re equally committed to making sure you’re happy backer.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
