    Special Pieces
    Special Piece Requests
    • Each puzzle includes your puzzle artisan’s signature piece (varies by cutter) and our Waterford tree logo.
    • We can usually include 5 special pieces for every 100 pieces of the puzzle.
    • Special pieces can be letters, words, names and dates. Note that two letters or numbers typically equal one special piece. (e.g., “John” would count as 2 special pieces).
    • For specific special piece design requests (e.g., photo of your dog for a “poodle” silhouette piece), you can attach photos in the “Upload Your Images” section below, or you can email them to us at [email protected].
    Border Style

    Regular borders have 90° corners and will be square or rectangular in shape. An irregular border adds to the puzzle’s assembly difficulty and at least one of the puzzle’s edges will not be straight or one or more of its corners will not be 90°.

    Cutting Tricks

    The puzzle artisan can include trick edge and corner pieces, false edge and corner pieces and color line cutting among other cutting tricks. The more tricks in a puzzle, the more difficult the puzzle will be to assemble.

  • We'll contact you if we run into any issues.
