Where can I buy push pins or stickers for my map?

Where can I puchase map tacks or stickers for my map? is a question that I’m frequently asked.

If your map is printed on canvas – you can use needle push pins on it directly and they will hold.

If your map is a print, mounted on a foam core board or corkboard, you can use needle push pins on it as well. Be careful, the push pins will leave holes if you move them.

If your map is a print and you don’t want to make holes on it, you can use stickers. There are lots of options out there, in many shapes and colors. Stickers can be used on top of the print itself or on top of the glass (or acrylic sheet) of the frame. This option is recommended for museum quality prints that are supposed to last for 100+years. You don’t want to make holes on those!

Now let’s talk about push pins. If you want to support small business, you can order push pins from CraftyElephant on Etsy.

She sells 10 colors of pins, 100 pins per box, for $6.00, including shipping. The MULTI-COLOR box contains pins of several colors, all mixed together in one box. Multi colored boxes contain a few pins of each color in each box, but the counts per color per box will vary. The boxes come pre-packed by the manufacturer.

Can’t get enough? No problem, she sells larger sets: Set of 200 push pins, Set of 300 push pins.

Link to map tacks on Amazon.com. There are many options to choose from! These are 1/8 inch map tacks (also called needle push pins) I ordered from Amazon, pinned in one of my highly detailed world map canvas prints:
