A beautiful gift and a statement piece. The seller is amazing and really helpful if anything does not come perfect! Printing photos is easy on their website and makes traveling fun. My advice for photo printing is to make a collage of your photo where its overlapping a lot. This makes it easy to center your photo over the state and not leave blank space; there is no way to get a nice single photo in some states. When printing do not print the black boarder as it makes it really hard to completely cut/cover once on the map.
A suggestion for the seller: I would have the back mat lightly scored or printed with a light gray with the outline of the states, it is pretty tricky to line up the photos otherwise.
