:::: IMPORTANT INFO ABOUT TIMING ::::

Bella Puzzles are in high demand. I create a limited number of puzzles each month.

Rush orders are sometimes accepted. A rush fee will apply.

INTERNATIONAL shipments are shipped USPS Express unless otherwise arranged. All customs duty fees and taxes are the responsibility of the buyer. Customs duties,

:::: PUZZLE DETAILS ::::

SIZE
17 x 21 inches or larger

NUMBER OF PIECES FOR SIGNING
This puzzle has about 100 pieces large enough for signing.

I recommend you get enough pieces for at least 70% of your guest list. (e.g. 70 pieces for a guest list of 100 people.) For more info about selecting the right size puzzle, see my blog post: The secret to getting the right number of pieces for your puzzle guest book http://www.bellapuzzles.com/the-right-number-of-pieces-for-puzzle-guest-book/

Visit www.etsy.com/shop/BellaPuzzlesToo to see the full range of puzzle sizes. Need a bigger puzzle than you see in the shop? Please let me know.

SPECIAL PIECES FOR PERSONALIZATION
I can make puzzle pieces in the shape of letters and numbers, and in many other familiar shapes. I will also be happy to make your entire puzzle in the shape of your choice (see option 5).

Client chose the following options:
1. Two names
2. Event date
3. Large ampersand in center of puzzle
4. Rounded corners for overall puzzle

NOTE ABOUT SPECIAL PIECES
Special pieces are smaller than the sign-able pieces. I design and locate the special pieces so the puzzle guest book can be used and displayed with or without them. Displaying the puzzle without its special pieces often looks more interesting and makes the puzzle more challenging (fun) to assemble. Your puzzle's special pieces are carefully packaged and are included with your puzzle in its box.

PENS
Two pens are provided with your Bella Puzzle. They write perfectly on this surface.

Frequently asked questions about BellaPuzzlesToo

All puzzles you see in my shop can be customized to some degree. That's what makes them special. If you'd like something other than what you see in the shop, please contact me. lara@bellapuzzles.com
[Number of guests] x [0.70] = approximate number of puzzle pieces.

Or, pick a puzzle in my shop. Flip through the images for that puzzle until you get to the one that shows you how many puzzle pieces to order for your number of guests.
Perhaps you'd like a puzzle to arrive earlier than it says it will in my shop? Rush orders are available IF I can find time to work overtime. A rush fee will apply. Ask me about a rush order: lara@bellapuzzles.com (or use an Etsy email).

My "shop announcement" always has the most up-to-date info about my projected shipping and delivery dates for orders.
Puzzle sizes vary depending on the number of pieces you order. More important than the final dimensions of the puzzle is the size of each puzzle piece. You'd like enough room for each guest to sign a name AND leave a short message, right? That's why I aim for a 2 x 2 inch size per puzzle piece.
I can make replacement pieces for most of my puzzles.

There is a replacement fee for each piece I replace. Also, you'll need to ship part or all of the original puzzle to me so I can create a replacement for your missing piece.

Contact me if you need replacements: lara@bellapuzzles.com.

Sometimes I'm asked to make replacement pieces because a guest writes something inappropriate or ugly on a puzzle piece. Try using sandpaper to erase their writing. If that doesn't work, I'll be happy to make you a replacement piece. Might as well try to the free option first, though, right?
They're cut out of the wood, one piece at a time. Each letter or number is a tiny puzzle piece of its own.
Nope. If it's a 20 piece puzzle, that means there are 20 large pieces for guests to sign. Letter-shaped or number-shaped puzzle pieces that make up any names or dates you've requested are IN ADDITION TO the sign-able puzzle pieces.
Please send your image to lara@bellapuzzles.com or bellapuzzles@gmail.com. They should NOT be sent through Etsy. You may send your file before or after you've placed your order.
Bella Puzzles is not accepting wholesale orders at this time.
