What is Portrait Collage Puzzles?
A portrait collage puzzle is simply a puzzle made with more than one picture or image in a portrait orientation. It allows you to group more than 2 images into one of our 96+ templates that help you create your perfect collage puzzle.
Purpose of Portrait Collage Puzzles?
When you cannot simply choose one image, this is the ideal way to go. Sometimes, a grouping of images from a single day or of a single person makes more impact when put together. Did you take a trip to Italy? Why not group a few different locations and scenery. Maybe the Colosseum, one of the beautiful bridges in Venice, the leaning tower of Pisa or the Trevi fountain. By grouping these together, you will create a unique collage puzzle that you will be able to enjoy for years to come.
Benefits of Portrait Collage Puzzle
It’s important to preserve our memories for yourself or for later generations. Let’s face it, as we age, our memory fades and it’s great to be able to relive a special day by doing a puzzle.
Having a memory is great and we shouldn’t stop making them, but why not display them too! After you are done assembling your puzzle try framing it and hanging in an area people will see it and you have a great time talking about it when someone sees it.
How about making a coffee table top from one. Just put the assembled puzzle under a piece of glass and place it on top of a coffee table. It’s practice and will be used often and can really showcase a puzzle that evokes a special day.
Entertaining all ages
A collage puzzle is a great way to entertain people of all ages. For younger children under 10, we recommend puzzles with 100 to 260 pieces and over 10 years of age, a 500 or 1000 would be great. It’s an entertaining way to spend time either alone or with a group.
Customizing the puzzle box
We’ve made it so easy to customize your puzzle but we didn’t stop there. The box is just as important. You want it to be sturdy in order to protect your puzzle for years to come. However, it also should be a beautiful way to present your gift.
Our custom photo boxes are a great way to showcase your gift and by giving you the ability to add text, clip art and graphics, we’ve made it a way to express yourself.
Add a name or the location, add a date, add a special quote or message that expresses how you felt that day. You have so many possibilities that you can create, it’s really up to you, but we’ve made it easy to do.
Quality and durability
A puzzle is great fun, but when it’s flimsy or breaks and bends due to poor quality, that ruins the experience. MakeYourPuzzle.com has made it possible to buy a premium high-quality puzzle at an affordable price.
Your puzzles should last a lifetime and they will! Our premium puzzle board thickness is Premium Puzzle 70pt Blue Board. It’s lightweight, yet sturdy enough to be put together and disassembled many times over. We created a puzzle that can be handed down for generations to come.
Improving problem solving skills
Assembling puzzles is a great way to sharpen your problem-solving skills. When you puzzle, you use both your left and right brain. It’s helps you to improve your cognitive skills. Logical reasoning and analytical thinking increase and while you are putting together puzzles, your concentration and focus increases.
Creativity is enhanced when you focus on one thing and puzzling is great for just that. It allows your mind to take a break. You just focus on shapes, sizes and color.
Boosting concentration and skills
When you are forced to focus on one thing, it helps improve concentration. By looking for a specific puzzle piece you need to put in place, you are forced to really concentrate, everything is not important. You focus on the color shape or size you are looking for and it forces you to ignore other things around you. You can be hyper focused on locating the correct piece.
Reducing stress and anxiety
Reducing stress and anxiety are super critical, especially for your overall health. Puzzles allow you to slow down, to find a specific piece that you need and focus on what you are working on.
Providing a sense of accomplishment
Seeing a puzzle come together is rewarding. As you see it fully complete you feel a sense of accomplishment. You started a project, worked on it and finished it.
