Custom Jigsaw Puzzle

September 29th, 2009

          This is a large and ellaborate custom puzzle that I made last year for a Christmas presant. It is about 16 x 20 inches with 700 or so pieces. I was asked to make names of the kids in the puzzle as pieces and put each name near each kid. The MARSHALL piece was over two inches long. Normally I would prefer to use drop-out-lettering (covered in a future post) but in this case it would have resulted in too many spaces in the puzzle. The added design made the puzzle much more than just a custom puzzle with a nice collage of pictures.

          Over the years I have made many large custom puzzles. Unfortunately, I didn’t take pictures so I can’t show them to you. One I especially remember started in 1994 when a couple came into the shop with pictures to be made into a collage for a 50th wedding anniversary. The center picture of the parents was a sepia toned black and white 5×7 enlargement of the parents on their wedding day. She was in a wool business suit and  “sensible” shoes. He was in his navy blues. He had weekend liberty from his ship in Boston to get married.
