Things To Consider When Choosing Your Puzzle Design
The Image File Format
We can process JPG (jpg, jpeg) and PNG 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
The 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. If your image is too low quality, our customizer will show you a warning sign on the image which you can click on to see what the images dpi are. From there if it’s too low, the best idea is to find another image instead.
Maximum File Size You Can Upload
Usually, high resolution images taken with your phone or camera are between 2 to 8 MB (megabyte) in size, however with our system you can upload up to 50 MB per image.
Bleed And Cut Lines
In short, bleed is a printing term that refers to the area that is printed beyond the edge of the finished puzzle size. If we didn't have bleed and cut down your artwork even a fraction off 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.
The cut 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 cut line.
How Do I Know If A 1000 Piece Puzzle Is The Right Size For Me?
What size will work best for you? Our recommendations are as follows:
- 100 pieces: Children 6-7 years old
- 260 pieces: Children 8-9 years & adults
- 500 pieces: Children 10+ & adults (5+ hours are often required)
- 1000 pieces: Children 10+ & adults (10+ hours are often required)
