Made with Love

{Custom Made}
All our puzzle listing photos are ideas to help you create the perfect details for your special day. You can send a picture of your wedding logo, or a graphic you would like engraved on your puzzle, book or box. We offer many options to further personalize your wedding guest book puzzle. Our puzzles can be made with or without edges (the Forever Puzzle) They can also be made with pieces cut from the same wood, or they can be of mixed wood grain to add dimension. The tabs on the puzzle pieces are another option. We feature puzzles with tiny heart tabs, or your puzzle can be made with the regular round tabs. No matter what you choose, all are made with great attention to detail. More information about our puzzles can be found in our blog

{The Forever Puzzle}
For one of our first anniversaries, Mark created the Forever Puzzle. It was made of white card stock, each piece cut out by hand. The idea was, that every year on our anniversary, he would give me another piece to our puzzle. Every piece is the same, so it fits anywhere in the puzzle. In this way, our puzzle can grow as our love does... Forever.

We now make Forever puzzles mainly for Wedding Guest Books, but they can be made for any occasion; Anniversaries, Birthdays, Graduations, etc. We recently made one for our son's Eagle Court of Honor, for guests to sign and add their congratulatory messages to him.

{How it's Made}
Creating a Forever Puzzle starts with designing a proof, which is sent to you for your approval. We work with you on your layout until it is just right. Next, wood is selected and your design is laser engraved on it. Once it is finished in the laser, we clean, assemble and photograph it. The puzzles come partially assembled, so you can put your puzzle together more easily, once it arrives. Each order is beautifully packaged and made with love.

We feel honored to be a part of the Etsy community, a place where we can share our love of creating beautiful things with people all over the world.

Many of our designs have been inspired by wonderful customers, we love your ideas!

Thank you for visiting our shop

Frequently asked questions

How do I order a custom puzzle design?

You can order from a listing that has the amount and style of pieces you want, and I can make it with your design. You can send me your information in the Notes to Seller box when you check out, or send it to me in a message.

I need my puzzle right away, how can I expedite the process?

Once you have ordered, check your messages often as I will be sending you a proof to approve. Once I have your approval, I will begin making your order. I ship Priority mail which delivers in about 3 days. You can upgrade your shipping to Express which takes about 2 days.

How many pieces should I order?

70% of your guest list is a good amount to order. Most couples will sign only one piece and families usually do the same.

What is the best type of pen to use to sign the puzzle pieces?

Regular ballpoint pens work very well for signing. Fine tip sharpies are also ok, they just bleed slightly. Extra pieces are sent with every order to test out pens on and to use in case a few pieces go missing or someone needs a do over :)

What if I need help putting my puzzle together?

You can refer to your proof to see how your puzzle goes together. General directions can also be found here:
