Creating a custom wood jigsaw puzzle using an image you provide is a collaborative process. Many people have used them for gifts, entertainment, stocking stuffers, wedding presents, and one of a kind gifts. When we make each puzzle we take into account who is receiving the puzzle and who is giving the gift. The persons interests are that is receiving the puzzle and what the occasion is. Its personal. The most unique aspect that we have found with making a wood jigsaw puzzle is clients get to tell a story within the puzzle and make a memory.
The story for this particular puzzle is the groom was looking for a different kind of way to celebrate and anniversary. He then contacted us and we started making the puzzle after we received the image. The groom specifically requested the figure pieces faith, love, and hope carved as figure pieces in the puzzle. Those three words had a significant meaning to the two of them and carried value throughout their marriage.
What are Figure Pieces or “Silhouette” pieces?
A figure piece is a specialty carved out piece within a wood jigsaw puzzle that can be shaped like anything! The wood jigsaw puzzle piece could be a cat, a dog, the logo for your company, a set of words, a date that you met your spouse, a favorite hobby, a pastime, the name of a pet, the names of your kids, initials, sports that you like…the possibilities are endless! This is really the fun part. When you purchase a wood jigsaw puzzle as a gift for someone or even for yourself I ask that you tell me about yourself a little bit in the “Order Notes” at checkout. A short few paragraphs will assist me in designing your silhouettes and figure pieces. I then cut those pieces into your puzzle!

What is Style & Cut?
Style refers to the edge and corner style of the outside of the puzzle. The choices are strait edges with square corners, strait edges with round corners, and scalloped (…as shown in the images above…) The cut refers to the types of connectors we cut when making the wood jigsaw puzzle. Classic round knob or ear-let which is shaped like a heart.
What about Packaging?
Our puzzle packaging comes in two different variants. One variant is with the image printed on the label that the wood jigsaw puzzle was made from. The second variant is with a label that has no image at all and the assembler has no idea what they are getting! It is really up to you as the buyer to decide what kind of packaging label would like & how much you want to drive the person crazy receiving the wood jigsaw puzzle gift!
Can I send it as a gift?

Specify at checkout that this is gift for a family member or friend within the “Order Notes” you can also add a few blurbs about the figure pieces you would like to have cut into your puzzle in this same location.
