Custom puzzles are a special gift or keepsake for any hobby puzzler. You can easily learn how to make a DIY custom puzzle that’s completely unique and can be enjoyed over and over again. 

Jigsaw puzzles come in a variety of sizes, but for those who enjoy a challenge, 1,000-piece puzzles are the perfect size and skill level. These puzzles should take about ten hours to solve, and can be a fun, collaborative family activity. 

When considering where you can get good quality custom made puzzles, know that not all retailers offer large, 1,000-piece sizes. Luckily, MakeYourPuzzles helps you make your own photo puzzle, sized anywhere between forty-eight and 1,000 pieces!

How to Order a Custom-Made 1,000-Piece Puzzle | MakeYourPuzzles

Getting Started

Selecting your puzzle size is the first step. 1,000-piece puzzles will measure twenty-six by nineteen inches, giving you plenty of space to create the perfect design. While one photo is classic and simple, 1,000-piece puzzles are fantastic for choosing multiple photos.

Choosing a Template

We have nearly one hundred templates to choose from, so there is something for any holiday, occasion, or aesthetic. The template will set the tone for the rest of the customizing, so choose the one you love best.

Selecting Photos

Using our puzzle maker tool you can upload as many as sixty-four photos! Our drag-and-drop feature lets you arrange your photos however you like. You can also resize and reposition your selections. 

A gallery of images is well suited for when you want to commemorate multiple people or memories. This is a great place to experiment and play around with what looks good. It’s helpful to keep the photos within the same theme if you are using multiples. 

Keep in mind that using clear, in-focus pictures with high resolution will ensure your final result will be sharp and more enjoyable to complete. For 500- and 1,000-piece puzzles, we recommend you use pictures with no fewer than 2,400 pixels.

Customizing Your Puzzle

Once you feel good about your photos and their arrangement, it’s time to get your creative juices flowing! This part of the process is fun and totally up to your specifications.

Adding Text and Graphics

Our easy-to-use text tool allows you to add whatever text you would like to include on your puzzle. Names, dates, and quotes are wonderful ways to personalize your puzzle. You can change the font, sizes, colors, and position the text wherever you want. You can even add clip art for more customization!

Designing The Box

MakeYourPuzzles stands apart from other retailers by offering fully customized puzzle boxes. This added layer of detail is not only like gift-wrapping your puzzle, but it takes your personalization to the next level. 

Here, you can choose photos, colors, text, and clip art. What’s on the outside of the box will give the recipient a clue as to what's inside the box, so take your time to make it just right. 

Our 1,000-piece puzzles are proudly made from start to finish in the US, using eco-friendly materials and practices. Our premium stay-flat puzzle board will impress even the most seasoned puzzler and is sure to stand the test of time!
