About

Amazing Custom Photo Jigsaw Puzzles and Guest Book Puzzles ... and it all started with the ArtMan.

Many years ago I ordered a photo puzzle from a company that had an impressive website and a not so affordable price. I ordered one with many pieces and looked forward to it's arrival. Unfortunately, when I received the puzzle it was so thin that I had to be careful putting it together because I was afraid that I would break the pieces. The color was disappointing, it arrived in a plastic bag with a terrible copy of the picture that I sent in, and it was paper thin. Although I had ordered many pieces, the puzzle was so small that the pieces were just terrible and didn't fit well. I was so disappointed with the whole puzzle that I have never forgotten how it felt and how skeptical it made me of purchasing sight unseen.

The idea that everyone should have the opportunity to own a quality puzzle made from their own photograph helps to drive the company. As the Mom of a son who suffers from autism, and as a retired teacher of special needs kids, puzzles have always been a part of my life, so it was a natural transition from teaching with puzzles to providing puzzles to teachers, as well as others. From start to finish we do it right. We can turn any of your photo's into puzzles, in varying shapes, sizes and piece counts, for every age and ability level.

Proudly MADE IN AMERICA, with quality standards in mind.

We were named 2015 The American Small Business Champion by Sams Club and SCORE! How cool is that? Our puzzles have also been featured on the TODAY SHOW for Best Personalized Gifts.

Additional policies and FAQs
DOWNLOADING FROM SMART-PHONES AND SOME GENERAL SUGGESTIONS FOR DOWNLOADS.

We strongly recommend that you photo submissions be a minimum of 150 dpi, which will make a great photo. Cell phone technology has come so far and most new smart-phone cameras are capable of amazing photographs! The key is in the download... When downloading from a smart-phone, please download as "Actual or Original" size for best results. The better the camera, the better the quality of the puzzle. If purchasing a photo from a photographer, please let them know that you wish to enlarge so they can provide you with a high-resolution product.

DIRECTIONS FOR ASSEMBLING OUR WHITE PUZZLES CAN BE FOUND ON OUR BLOG HERE: http://www.themissingpiecepuzzlecompany.com/blog.asp or here www.themissingpiecepuzzlecompany.com/Wedding-Puzzles_c_18.html We strongly suggest that you have your puzzle numbered if it is above 30 pieces, as the shapes and sizes of the pieces are similar, but not exact. We number the back for a nominal fee, which saves tons of time!

Frequently asked questions

What to write with on a white puzzle.

We recommend that you write with medium point pens, as puzzles are porous. Sharpie markers with a medium tip work very well on our white puzzles and look amazing when you use multi-colors.

How to send the photo for print

You will go to the product page and select the piece count of the puzzle that you are interested in purchasing, go through checkout, then follow the directions on the bottom of your electronic receipt from Etsy. It's simple...

Recommended Photo File Size

A great puzzle starts with a great photo. There are many cell phone cameras that are better than most digital cameras! Your photo file from a cell phone should be downloaded as "Actual or Original" size for the best results. High-Resolution photos from a professional photographer are always preferred. Simply let your photographer know the finished size of the puzzle that you have selected and they will provide the correct size.

How to assemble a Numbered Puzzle

First, place a piece of cardboard or a cookie tray on a table, as this is what you will assemble your puzzle on. You will need to flip the puzzle over after you assemble and this is the easiest way to achieve this once assembled.

Next, turn all of the puzzle pieces so that the back is facing up. You should have the numbers facing you and all to the bottom right-hand corner. When we number our puzzles, we number in the bottom right-hand corner of the piece in numerical order.

Now you are ready to assemble. Simply take each piece and go in numerical order, making sure that the numbers are all in the bottom right-hand corner of the piece. That's it! Carefully flip the puzzle when complete and enjoy...
