About Us. A Puzzle Company For All.
We Turn Your Most Cherished Photo Memories Into Personalized Puzzle fun...
Many years ago I purchased a custom photo puzzle from a company that had an impressive website and all the right images. The price was ridiculously high and the time that it took to receive the product was weeks from the time of order. When I finally received the puzzle I was so disappointed that I became skeptical of ordering online. The puzzle that I had paid a hefty fee for was extremely smaller than expected, as they never advertised a finished size on the product but had an impressive piece count that misled me. Not only that, it was thin as a matchbook! My disappointment stayed with me for a very long time...
Flash Forward Many Years...
I was a teacher who used puzzles in the classroom and a widowed Mom to the most incredible amazing son who has autism. My son was having difficulties with focusing and I thought that a photo puzzle of himself would help. I immediately flashed back to my experience and decided against it. The idea began to bug me so I opened my own company to correct all of the pitfalls of the industry. Our puzzles are made thick and with high-quality materials. After all, they were made for my son and he sets the bar pretty high! The idea was born out of love and continues to grow...
We have been reviewed by YouTube influencers DOPE OR NOPE, and of course, we were DOPE! How fun is that?
It's also rumored that one of our puzzles made a trip to the ISS, but we cannot officially confirm or deny... (That was epic!)
You can read about us in several newspaper articles, such as the Huff Post, AC Press and other local wedding blogs. We're honored by their kind words.
We also have won several awards for the high-quality of our custom puzzles, notably being named The American Small Business Champion from Sams Club and SCORE!
