Distinguish Yourself From Life Forms That Don’t Do Jigsaw Puzzles (A Guest Blog Post)

This is a guest blog post from puzzle investor Timothy Wright: The wimmin in my life tell me that the one human ability that distinguishes us from all other life forms on earth is our ability to accessorize. So it only stands to reason the critical importance of having jigsaw accessories. In this post, I'll share some of the accessories I've found most useful.  I like to use two jigsaw puzzle boards: I can sort pieces on one board and assemble the final puzzle on another board. I imagine a white linen table cloth with a soft under padding would also work. The key thing...

The Annoying Lack of Side Labels on Our Puzzles

We're hearing from more of you that it's a problem that our Artifact line doesn't have a side-label that you can use to organize your Artifact puzzles. Here's a visual of the problem from customer Karen J. (thanks for permission to share) - how are you supposed to know which one is which?  Some good news is our newer Ecru line  does come with side labels on the long-side of the box. But to see those you still need to stack/organize your puzzles with the long-side of the box showing.  We are hoping to have a solution to this in early 2020 where...
