A number of you have asked if we can make all our puzzles ship without the picture on the box, to make the puzzles harder.
That was how all wood puzzles before the 1950's or so.
Meanwhile, this week we are having huge storms in California, and the humidity is wrinkling up the labels we usually put on our wood boxes.
Given the puzzle shortage due to the pandemic, we do not want to stop producing puzzles just because the humidity is high right now.
So, we have decided this is a good time to run an experiment: for the next couple of weeks (and maybe forever depending how this experiment goes), wood box puzzles will:
- still have side labels telling you which puzzle and how many pieces
- will NOT have the picture on the box
- will HAVE the picture hidden in the bottom of the box
- the picture in the bottom of the box is a big sticker, so you CAN put it on on the box top yourself if you prefer to have the sticker on the box
We'll also include a note letting people know that the picture is hidden in the bottom of the box.
Our non-wood box puzzles will stay the same, with the picture on their box.
