For my Jigsaw Puzzle Price Chart... please scroll down this page.

The Traditional Style jigsaw puzzle piece is a wonderful looking piece that is a lot of fun to solve. This is a terrific cut for the common jigsaw puzzle lover, as well as the advanced jigsaw puzzle aficionado. A personalized jigsaw puzzle is a wonderful way for your family and friends to gather for some quality time together. Whether for an evening in front of the fire, or a long weekend, or a large jigsaw puzzle that sits out on it's own designated table for the family to gather around for an hour each night over many weeks, a Hand crafted wooden jigsaw puzzle will be something special for you all to cherish.

I give very special, detailed attention to your personal pictures when I carve them, in order preserve important aspects such as faces, words and special objects. You also have the option to have me include special figure shaped pieces, in your puzzle. You receive 1 free for each 100 pieces of puzzle that you order, if you indicate that you want them on the order form, and then additional special figure shaped pieces beyone these 1 per 100, are available for $12 each if extra personalization is desired.

(A) Pricing & Piece Count
Puzzle piece ratio is very important
as my very best puzzles are cut at a ratio of 2.3 pieces per square inch of puzzle picture area. For true wooden jigsaw puzzle enthusiasts and collectors, the 2.3 pieces per square inch size puzzle is by far the most common size ordered, and the most collectible.

For example an 8"x10" picture = 80 square inches. 80 x 2.3 pcs. = 180 puzzle pieces from that size photo or art print. (rounded numbers)

11"x14" = 155" sq. x 2.3pcs. = 355 puzzle pieces...
14"x17" = 238" sq. x 2.3pcs. = 545 puzzle pieces...
16"x20" = 320" sq. x 2.3pcs. = 735 puzzle pieces... etc.

Very Large Jigsaw Puzzles

* The above prices are based on large jigsaw puzzles made using enlarged pictures or fine art prints, that you send to me, in their "actual" size for your custom puzzle order. Photographic images "SHOULD" be printed on KODAK, FUJI or ILFORD photographic paper. be sure to check that the KODAK, FUJI or ILFORD marking is on the reverse side of your print. You "can" send us images printed on other lesser quality papers, however we will not stand behind the puzzle if the paper and image peel in a premature way from standard puzzle handling. My puzzles are wonderful works of art in themselves, and not exactly inexpensive. It is worth investing just a few more dollars, and a little extra effort in ensuring that you are sending me an image printed on quality photo paper.

*** Additional Fees that "may, or may not", apply to your jigsaw puzzle order, include be the following services.

1) Printing fee is INCLUDED in the above prices!

2) Connecticut residents pay CT state Sales tax - All other US states are Tax Free - International orders are not taxed by the USA, however you are responsible for any and all import tariffs placed on your puzzle order from your own country's customs inspection officials. Contact your country's customs officials if this potential import tax is a concern to you.

3) Shipping charges are paid by the customer, and are added to the order total. We Ship UPS and FedEx within in the USA, and US Postal Service Express mail Internationally. In cases where customers provide us with their FedEx (Not UPS or DHL) account number, we are happy to ship them their order on their own account. As a result we will not charge any shipping or handling charges on that order.

4) Magnetic Jigsaw Puzzles Some customers want to have their custom made wooden puzzles Magnetized. This is an OPTION available by request only. Depending on the size of the individual pieces in your puzzle, from 1-5 special rare earth magnets will be needed to properly magnetize your puzzle.
