We’ve added something new to our lineup of customizable products: jigsaw puzzles! You can now make a plywood puzzle with your art in any size and shape you want. Just like our other puzzles, each one has a one-of-a-kind cut in the unique style created by our software that simulates the growth of crystals. Additionally, you can pick whimsies from our expanded set of figural pieces with themes like: space, undersea animals, microscopic life, and more.
your art + our algorithm + lasers = awesome one-of-a-kind puzzle

What can you make?
To test out the system, we’ve made a few custom puzzles with different themes.
1) a space theme puzzle! NASA has a collection of spectacular photographs taken by the hubble telescope that you can download and use however you like. We thought this photo of the Small Magellanic Cloud would make an awesome puzzle. Whimsies included: space shuttle, satellite, astronaut, and saturn
2) a leaf puzzle – We used one of my photographs from Alaska of a leaf covered in dew drops to make this challenging puzzle. Whimsies included: maple leaf, gambel oak leaf, mulberry leaf, and mystery leaf
