Product development

Every product starts with an idea. We design and produce new products or develop existing ones further. Always at the center of our efforts: the needs of our customers and the recognition of new market trends. In-house manufacturing plays a huge role in this procedure; it allows us to react quickly to changed conditions. A team of project managers, graphic designers and quality specialists is responsible for the implementation of selected product ideas. When defining product characteristics, we attach great importance to the optic point of view, the haptic and a long service life. We also take international peculiarities and requirements into account, as we ship our products to 23 different countries.

Production process - How your photos are turned into a jigsaw puzzle

Our customers' personalised puzzles and games are die-cut one by one with precision knives and placed in a box prepared by the customer.

Producing photo puzzles is not as easy as you would probably think. Comprehensive expertise about material composition, cardboard- and paper processing or the handling of adhesives is essential. Especially the main factors for success, such as the ambient temperature and the atmospheric humidity, are in practice not always easy to handle. Together with our knowledge, modern digital printing and hand-made punching devices take care that you will enjoy our puzzles for many years.

How do we turn your photo into a jigsaw puzzle anyway? First, we print your photograph or photo collage on sustainable photo paper. Then we adhere it to our specifically for us designed puzzle cardboard. Within the punching process, we punch the puzzle pieces with a weight of over one ton. Finally, a special separation machine disassembles your puzzle into its individual pieces before we fill them into a polybag. At the end it becomes romantic – At the so called „marriage“, the individual puzzle boxes, which have been made in a separate production line, are filled with the bags with puzzle pieces.

Packaging and logistics

Your unique photo product is also in best hands at the time of shipment, then this part of the whole process requires quality as well. It would be a pity if our products would pass through the strict final inspection, but would be damaged on the very last part of the route. We designed secure and environmental friendly packages that are optimally adapted to the respective product characteristics. In addition to that, we insure every shipment. This means that we will reproduce your product without ifs or buts, if your parcel arrives damaged or gets lost on the way. Besides that, we continuously work on optimising the handling of our orders. Our intention: from the production department directly to the place of destination. This allows us to offer a very quick delivery.

Skilled employees organise the shipment of our puzzles to currently 23 countries. In Europe or North America: the puzzleYOU puzzle will be with you within a few days.
