Since 2003 Up In Pieces has made photo puzzles for thousands of customers including celebreties, fortune 500 companies, and many others.
You can't make quality puzzles without quality tools and supplies. We use 10 color wide format inkjet printing with ultrachrome inks, which are UV and water resistant and rated to last 200 years without fading. We print using top of the line photo quality paper then finish the print with a varnish to enhance durability. Your photo reprint is not just a photocopy. It will last generations.
We know your photos are special and you can be sure that we treat them that way. An in-house graphic designer oversees layout of every puzzle order. We treat each puzzle individually to best fit it to the customer's desires. We never stretch or skew a photo, instead we may crop or add a matched color border to fit the puzzle size requirements.
After your print is permanently mounted to the puzzle backing (either cardboard or acrylic), we laser cut the puzzle. Advantages of using a laser instead of a puzzle press include being able to make any shape you want and/or any design you want. Since your puzzle is cut with a laser and not "pressed," the pieces lie flat next to each other leaving your finished puzzle smooth with less line visibility.
Constructing puzzles is fun for us and we want you to be as happy with the puzzle as we are.
