Pricing Basics

Prices for my custom made puzzles are based on the size of the puzzle, in square inches. The number of pieces may vary slightly from puzzle to puzzle, but the price will be the same for the size. "Entry level" puzzles, using the Basic style of cutting are priced differently than my "Traditional" cut puzzles.

Prices effective as of 1/1/15



Entry Level puzzle pricing

My "Entry Level" puzzles use the "Standard Cutting" style and are cut on 1/8" or 1/4" plywood. Entry Level puzzles average about 1.8 pieces per square inch and are cut into rows and columns only, from 8" x 10" (approx.) to 24" x 36" (approx.). No Special cuts available with Entry Level puzzles.

$33.30Price is .45 per square inch for 1/8" and .55 for 1/4"

These are the most common print sizes. If you have a print that does not conform to these sizes and you would like to know how much it will cost to make a puzzle here is the formula and an example.

Formula:
(Side A x Side B) x .45 (1/8") or .55 (1/4") =
COST

Example:
If you have a print that measures 15" x 28"
(15 x 28) x .45 =
$189.00 (740 pcs) for 1/8"
or
(15 x 28) x .55 = $231.00 (740 pcs) for 1/4"



Traditional puzzle pricing

Traditinoal cut puzzles are freehand cut puzzles, similar to the hand cut wooden puzzles that were produced in the 1930's. They can include all the bells and whistles like figure pieces, sculpted borders, irregular edges, and all the special cuts, if desired. Or you can stick to an old fashioned square-bordered puzzle. This style of puzzle is cut on 1/4" thick plywood and will average about 1.6 pieces per square inch (+/-10 pcs). The back is sanded smooth and comes to you in a wooden storage box.
Price is $1.20 per square inch.

A round puzzle will be charged based on the diameter multiplied twice. In otherwords, a 12" dia. round puzzle will be priced based on 12" x 12", or 144 square inches.
