I started Jigsaw Puzzle Company (New York Puzzle Company) focused on art from old media sources. We make all of our puzzles in the USA. AMA!
My short bio: Hi everyone. I am an entrepreneur that started a jigsaw puzzle company called New York Puzzle Company in 2007 as a way to try to self publish my photography. The company has been decently successful thus far (though it went in an entirely different direction from the original photography concept), so I thought I'd share my experience here and answer questions people may have about starting up wholesale products company and/or how jigsaw puzzles are made. Ours are the cardboard variety, not the wooden kind, which has a very different process. We make all of our puzzles in the USA - in Tipton, Indiana to be specific. This is my first time using Reddit, so hopefully it's easy to figure out and I can get things running smoothly.
Of course, if anyone is interested in buying a puzzle from us, I'm happy to offer people here free shipping. Just use the discount code RedditAMA when you check out on our website - www.nypuzzleco.com. That discount code will work until the end of May. We're primarily a wholesale company, so the retail site is pretty basic, but hopefully it works for what we need it to do.
For now we're only shipping within the USA from our site, so for those of you living elsewhere, feel free to email us at [email protected] and we can try to find a way to ship to you if it's possible.
My Proof: Not sure what other type of proof I can really offer other than a photo of myself in front of a closet full of our puzzles, so here you go: http://i.imgur.com/qJLT9Em.jpg
Going to head off of here for a while to get some food and start enjoying the weekend. Thanks to everyone for their questions and comments. I had a ton of fun and definitely got some great feedback from you all.
I'll be back periodically over the next few days to see if there are more questions that I can answer. And feel free to PM me if you have more questions as well.
