How to Create a Custom Puzzle

Thoughtful, creative gifts for the holiday season will never go out of style. For a gift that will delight friends, family, and business associates alike, consider creating your own custom puzzle. Custom puzzles are a great way to showcase your personality or send a special holiday greeting in an engaging package. It’s also easier than you might think to have a puzzle of your very own designed, printed, and delivered straight to your door.

Interested in creating your own custom puzzle for a gift or another special occasion? Use the following tips to get started.

TriAd’s custom holiday puzzle was a huge hit with our clients.

Choose a printing service

You have many options when it comes to selecting a service to print your puzzle. From websites that specialize in custom puzzle creation to the photo stand at your local pharmacy, different outlets provide a range of customizable options and features to bring your creation to life.

Before finalizing your puzzle’s design, it is important to choose a printing service that can match your desired goals for the project. Many services will allow you to customize each variable, from number of pieces, size, and board quality to the puzzle’s finish and even custom packaging. Carefully explore your options and choose a service that gives you the control to make your custom gift a success.

Choose a Design

Once you have chosen a printer that can deliver your puzzle’s desired features, it’s time to select a design. This is where you can let your personality shine. Detailed images that are complex enough to provide a challenge without being too busy will work best in a puzzle format. Work with a graphic designer to create custom art that conveys your desired message or employ stock images to get the job done. Even a photo can make for a great puzzle. The design is entirely up to you—just be sure to choose something compelling that people will want invest time in assembling.
