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.

Peacock double layer wooden jigsaw puzzle


For this peacock puzzle, a double layer was crafted into the jigsaw to make it more challenging for the assembler.

Fool's Gold puzzles are crafted using a solid 1/4" piece of basswood versus the lesser expensive plywood option other cutters employ.

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.
