Imagine a wooden jigsaw puzzle personalized with your name, your favorite hobby
or pet, a special calendar date, or a favorite activity. At Fool’s Gold, it’s all possible. Let us craft you a truly one-of-a-kind puzzle; one you will enjoy for years to come.
A number of different
photographs were scanned,
modified, and then designed
to make a one-of-a-kind
collage puzzle. It was the
perfect birthday present for
a young lady's Sweet 16!
Looking for puzzle ideas?
Custom jigsaw puzzles can be crafted from virtually any image: prints, photographs, maps, postcards, you name it! You’ll find a few examples on this page.
Photographs offer thousands of possibilities for custom puzzles. We are only limited by our imagination. As a rule, we do not cut original photographs. Once received, your photograph is scanned and retouched if necessary. It is then resized and printed on special archival paper and mounted onto our unique puzzle board. With your input, Fool’s Gold will turn your photo into a one-of-a-kind keepsake puzzle.
This original photograph was scanned,"cleaned up"—ridding dust and scratches, enlarged, and then carefully color-corrected. Details like eliminating extraneous telephone poles and
wires were also done.
"The puzzle's wonderful. It's exactly
what I had envisioned." —R. M. K., MD
A unique way to say “I love you”
Imagine giving that special someone a custom jigsaw puzzle for a marriage proposal, wedding anniversary, or engagement...with their name included! Imagine the look
on their face as they piece together a heart-shaped puzzle and find the words
“I love you” or"Will you marry me?" Whatever the occasion, whatever the event,
a personalized jigsaw puzzle is always sure to please.
A"Fool" in every puzzle!
Each Fool’s Gold puzzle contains our signature jester piece.
Along with this “fool”you can personalize a puzzle with your choice of specially cut Foolish figure pieces; a heart, frog, starfish, your name, a sailboat…whatever you wish!
How many Foolish Figurals can be included in a puzzle?
A typical 8” x 10” Gold Standard puzzle (contains approximately 160 pieces) and will comfortably accomodate around 8 personalized figure pieces. (Figure a 1 in 20 puzzle piece ratio.) Because of their smaller size, our Fool's Gold Nugget Series puzzles do not include any Foolish Figurals other than our signature “fool.” And there is no extra charge for figure pieces. We will do our best to accommodate your requests.
