The Best Globe Makers for Both Traditional and Contemporary Tastes

Buying world globes is still a satisfying experience for both the young and old based on how generational globes are. You can go back several hundred years and notice ordinary people and those of renown had globes in either their homes or in their place of work. All you have to do is look at old photos or paintings of prominent people from around the world and you'll frequently see a large globe sitting nearby.

The world's population has continuously tried to understand our planet and our place within it by owning globes. Even today, with all of the amazing technology available, Millennials still love owning a globe because they have a full 3D representation of the world available for quick study.

Thankfully, many of the best globe makers in the world managed to incorporate new technology into traditional globes to transcend generations. Here at Ultimate Globes, we're proud to offer many of those globes through our online store where you'll find a world globe for work, home and classroom use.

What are some of those globe maker names that offer beautiful and stylish globes at prices you'll like? Some of the names are probably familiar to you from either your past, or from other places.

Replogle Globes

Replogle is a name you probably find familiar (although difficult to pronounce) if you bought globes years ago. Founded by a man named Luther Replogle in 1930, the original company had its founder creating his globes by hand, which is the ultimate artistic commitment. Replogle the man is directly responsible for making world globes popular in the home buy developing mass production technologies.
Colonial Globe

In the 21st century, the company name became known as Replogle, and they haven't wavered on being one of the best globe makers in the world. We carry many of their high-quality globes at sale prices for your own use or for your children.

If you're looking for desktop globes, Replogle has some of the best out there. For instance, their 12-inch Hastings globe is a true classic with raised relief on the surface and a beautiful walnut finished hardwood stand. All of the stands from Replogle are high quality so you'll know they'll withstand continuous use. You and your kids will still use these for years to come, just like Replogle's globes from years ago.

The same goes for their floor globes that are a throwback to earlier centuries when these type of globes had prominent placement in any home library. Replogle's Colonial Globe is a good example of excellent craftsmanship with a walnut finish base.

National Geographic Globes

Byrd Globe
You'll find some globes here with the National Geographic name attached, though they're actually made from Replogle as well. Nevertheless, they stand alone in their uniqueness, particularly in their attention to cartographic value within the maps on many of their globes. Some of them are even illuminated, which is a new modern take for use as a nightlight or for education in dark rooms.

The Byrd Globe, for instance, is an example of a traditional desktop globe seen 50 years ago combined with updated materials and technology.
