What Are Personalized Puzzles?
There are so many different terms for these type of puzzles, so let's call it Custom Jigsaw Puzzles since this term includes all kinds of personalized puzzles such as on-demand puzzles, photo puzzles, photo collage puzzles, customizable puzzle among others.
Personalized Jigsaw Puzzles are not produced to shelf (for retailers) but produced on demand (make-to-order) mainly for end-consumers. This means once an order is placed, this puzzle will be produced to the unique specifications submitted to the manufacturer and will be shipped (in most cases) directly to your door. This concept allows the consumer to either design or select their own custom jigsaw puzzle images and create further content as well. So you can pick your favorite picture and make your own jigsaw puzzle. Pretty cool to be able to design your own jigsaw puzzles!

What Is The Recommended Image Resolution?
The higher the resolution, the better the quality of your printed photo puzzle. The final product also depends strongly on the resolution of the original digital photo.
If your image has a minimum length of 1600 pixels on its longest side, this is sufficient for a puzzle of 100, 260 pieces. This measurement corresponds approximately to a picture taken with a 2-megapixel camera. For a puzzle consisting of 500 and 1000 pieces, we recommend a minimum of 2500 pixels, corresponding to a 4-megapixel digital camera/phone camera.
We recommend a minimum dpi (dots per inch) of 100 dpi and a maximum of 300 dpi.
What Image File Formats Can Be Processed?
We can process JPG (jpg, jpeg), PNG, GIF and SVG formats. Most digital cameras automatically take pictures in the required JPG format! If you have any other formats, please contact us and we will make it work. Our customer service can be reached at email@example.com
What Are Bleed And Cut Lines?
While using our Photo Puzzle Customizer, you will recognize two different lines. Both lines will help you to optimize your puzzle customization process.
The blue line is the Bleed line - so what is Bleed?
In short, bleed is a printing term that refers to the area that is printed beyond the edge of the finished page size. If we didn't have bleed, and cut down your artwork even a fraction off of the trim line, you'd then have white edges showing on your artwork where you actually wanted your image all the way up to the edges. Having this bleed area prevents this from happening and ensures having a nice clean trim edge to the puzzles.
Pink dotted line - is the Puzzle Die Cut line. What is the cut line for?
The pink dotted line indicates where the puzzle die will make the cut on the printing sheet. So it is important to check that all image elements along with your potentially added text section is within this area and not on or off the pink dotted edge.
