Jigsaw Puzzles UK Made & Manufactured
Your design is expertly printed onto either cardboard or glossy laminated wood using dye sublimation. This ensures the inks are fused deep into the fibres of the material and create a lasting print. The classic jigsaw shape is expertly cut out and presented in a smart metallic presentation tin. This tin is also printed with either the same photo you've used for your puzzle or a completely different one.
To make our jigsaw puzzles UK quality, everything is finished and checked by hand to ensure a quality product. Please note that the small 30 piece and medium 96 piece puzzles are made from 2.5mm wood that is given a waterproof glossy coating. The 1000 piece jigsaw is too big to use wood, so it's made from 2mm thick sturdy cardboard.
The surface of the small and medium puzzles is waterproof, as it's covered in a glossy laminate coating. Should you need to, wipe clean with a mild damp cloth to remove any dirt or drink spillages. The large 1000 piece puzzle is made from cardboard, so try to avoid getting wet so the print quality and material isn't affected.
The presentation tin is also custom printed with your designs, and can either feature the same design as your puzzle or a different one. We print directly onto the tin, so the metallic grain is visible, resulting in a rustic, silver finish where the image has a slightly desaturated effect. So make your own jigsaw puzzle using your unique patterns and enjoy how much character it has.
Reviews for Jigsaw Puzzle
based on 2 customer reviews
I ordered a glass chopping board, puzzle and blanket and was absolutely surprised by the quality. Therefore won't think that for a mouse pad it is worth the money. However, the print was beautiful, but in general was expecting something better for the money.
In general - brilliant service.
I ordered a 1000 piece jigsaw.
It was easy to upload my design. The item arrived very quickly. I wasn't expecting a 'plasticised' finish on top of the board, but in fact it looks good and the pieces fit nicely.
It's not cheap, so my family won't be getting these for Christmas, but the price reflects the ease of use, speed of delivery, and quality of product.
The breadth of items available here is amazing. I have previously used Bags of Love for a bespoke fabric print and was very pleased with them, and I now realise you are sister companies.
I will definitely use you again, probably for wrapping paper, for which I was previously unable to find a suitably-flexible UK-based company.

What's the best resolution to print in?
We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally, your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi, this means that no resizing of your file occurs stopping any interpolation.
Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?
For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.
Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
If each individual colour is specifically important to your design, choose CYMK as our setup will print each colour with the closest possible match within our available range. If the relationship between the colours within the image is more important, choose RGB, this will reduce all colours equally to fit within our range.
What does GSM mean?
Grams per Square Meter (GSM) is an international standard for measuring the weight of paper or fabric. GSM uses the weight of a square meter (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a given fabric. We class 20-100gsm as light (summer fabrics, gauzes and fine silks), 101-249 gsm as medium (most clothing fabrics) and 250+ gsm as heavy (upholstery fabrics, and other specialist fabrics).
What are the bleed areas?
When designing your product, it’s best to make sure that your image is slightly larger than needed. In printing, the extra printed image is referred to as a “Bleed Area” or margin, and it is removed from the finished piece. A bleed area acts as a buffer for slight inconsistencies in the manufacturing process. however, it’s important to fill your bleed areas completely, or you may end up with white, unprinted strips along the edge of your finished product.
Do you print on garments a customer supplies?
Unfortunately not. All our garments are printed on flat fabric and sewn into finished products, which gives a better, finished result and all-over print. We test meticulously so that we know what gets the best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation paper to order, so if you have access to a heat press you can press your fabrics or flat garments easily.
Can you Align a Pattern or design across panels of a garment?
We always strive for the greatest accuracy when printing and constructing your garments. However, due to unavoidable stretch or movement of the fabric during the stitching process, we cannot guarantee perfect pattern registration across garment seams. We are generally accurate within 2-3mm, which Is close enough for most patterns but may show slight issues with detailed geometric patterns.
Can I print my own Labels?
Most of our garments now come with printable label space for you to add your own company information and branding! If you would like to sew in your own labels, we also offer Printed Fabric Labels here.
How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?
With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility in London where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfillment.
Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, all measurements may vary slightly.
