It’s important to preserve your 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 practical and will be used often and can really showcase a puzzle that evokes a special day.
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 else is not important.

100% Recycled Puzzle Board
There are a lot of different materials being used for jigsaw puzzles these days. However, we know the puzzle board is the most important key component in order to produce a premium jigsaw puzzle. Therefore we only use real puzzle board. When die cut, the layers stay flat and the jigsaw puzzle remains intact.

Eco-Friendly Inks And Brilliant Quality
Our printers are known as the most sustainable printers in the market and our inks are GreenGuard Gold certified. Unlike solvent-based inks, latex inks are not harmful to the environment. Latex inks do not contain chemicals in quantities that are harmful to you or the world, making them far safer to use than solvent inks.
We order our inks as needed and store only a minimum to reduce any potential waste. Our inks are made in the USA.
Latex printing guarantees high-quality images. Due to the nature of latex, these images are also incredibly durable and are highly resistant to scratches so your photo puzzle will last for a long time.
Domestic Supply Chain
Our entire supply chain is US based. This setup allows us to organize a just-in-time delivery and reduce emissions due to shorter distances than from overseas. It promote higher product quality due to stricter adherence to local regulations, standards, and quality control measures of our US partners.
