How Your Custom 500 Piece Puzzle is made
Using the design interface, you can design your own custom 500 piece jigsaw puzzle with portrait or landscape designs. You will also notice there are other sized jigsaws available. If you think a 500 piece jigsaw might be a little too tricky, you can select one of our smaller options. Alternatively, go all out and create a 1000 piece jigsaw for the puzzle fanatic in your life.
Once we receive your order, our specialist wood workers will print the design on to a reinforced cardboard. The image is then cut into your custom 500 piece puzzle made of classic jigsaw puzzle shaped pieces which are then collated and put into your metal presentation tin.
If you have chosen to customise your presentation box, your designs will be printed directly onto the tin, which will give the image a silvery, etched look.
As the custom 500 piece puzzle is made from cardboard, please try to avoid getting it wet so the print quality and material isn't affected.
When you create your own 500 piece puzzle you might want to use a tessellated design or repetitive pattern to make unscrambling your jigsaw even harder. If you'd like to add text or a nice message to the puzzle, you can choose a block colour background and select a font from a wide range. The message could be really small and hidden amongst the design, or really big to make the puzzle easier to solve.
It is a nice idea to use the same design on the presentation tin, as this gives the unscrambler a reference guide when trying to put the pieces together. If you are looking to create a custom 500 piece puzzle for your own store, you could add your logo to the tin for a professional look.
The custom 500 piece puzzle is the perfect coffee table game to keep out when guests are visiting. Ideal for entertaining children, or challenging friends, the jigsaw is hours of handmade fun.
You could create your own 500 piece puzzle and send to prospective investors as a fun and interactive PR tool. Alternatively, if you have a consultancy business, or something that involves customers having to wait around in your office or showroom, offering a fun puzzle for them and their children to play with while they wait is a great boredom buster, and a lovely way to give back to your customers.
Transform your art pieces into beautiful custom 500 piece jigsaw puzzles. Offer your customers a fun and interactive way to enjoy your designs, and brand each metal tin with your logo.
Frequently asked questions:
Can I clean my custom 500 piece puzzle?
As the jigsaw is made from a sturdy cardboard, we would not recommend trying to clean the puzzle as this could result in damage to the pieces.
Can I upload my own designs?
Yes, you can create your own 500 piece puzzle through our design interface. Alternatively, you can browse designs already uploaded by our community of artists.
What are the dimensions of my jigsaw?
Each jigsaw has 500 pieces, is 2mm thick and when put together, measures 13" x 18.5".
Designer 500 Piece Jigsaw
Challenge yourself with a designer 500 piece jigsaw. A handmade, unique jigsaw presented in a co-ordinating metal tin.
What's the best resolution to print in?
We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally, your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi, this means that no resizing of your file occurs stopping any interpolation.
Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?
For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.
Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
We advise providing images in the RGB colour space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best colour results.What does this mean? In your editing software choose RGB as the working space, and assign the image profile as sRGB (full name sRGB IEC61966-2.1)
What does GSM mean?
Grams per Square Meter (GSM) is an international standard for measuring the weight of paper or fabric. GSM uses the weight of a square meter (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a given fabric. We class 20-100gsm as light (summer fabrics, gauzes and fine silks), 101-249 gsm as medium (most clothing fabrics) and 250+ gsm as heavy (upholstery fabrics, and other specialist fabrics).
What are bleed areas?
When designing your product, it’s best to make sure that your image is slightly larger than needed. In printing, the extra printed image is referred to as a “Bleed Area” or margin, and it is removed from the finished piece. A bleed area acts as a buffer for slight inconsistencies in the manufacturing process. however, it’s important to fill your bleed areas completely, or you may end up with white, unprinted strips along the edge of your finished product.
Do you print on garments a customer supplies?
Unfortunately not. All our garments are printed on flat fabric and sewn into finished products, which gives a better-finished result and all-over print. We test meticulously so that we know what gets the best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation paper to order, so if you have access to a heat press you can press your fabrics or flat garments easily.
Can you Align a Pattern or design across panels of a garment?
We always strive for the greatest accuracy when printing and constructing your garments. However, due to unavoidable stretch or movement of the fabric during the stitching process, we cannot guarantee perfect pattern registration across garment seams. We are generally accurate within 2-3mm, which is close enough for most patterns but may show slight issues with detailed geometric patterns.
Can I print my own Labels?
Most of our garments now come with printable label space for you to add your own company information and branding! If you would like to sew in your own labels, we also offer Printed Fabric Labels here.
How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?
With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfilment.
Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, all measurements may vary slightly.
