The Official UK Jigsaw Puzzle Club and Jigsaw Shop
The jigsaw puzzle club will now be distributing personalised Jigsaw Puzzles! What do we mean by a personalised jigsaw? Well, you send us a picture, we put it on a jigsaw, send it back and you can do a jigsaw puzzle of an image you chose! These jigsaws come in 500piece or 1000piece versions and in either portrait or landscape, click below for examples;
What sort of picture do you need to send us?
You can send your picture on-line by emailing us or by using the order form further down the page and posting it to us.
If you upload your pictures, or send a CD, you can do that directly from your camera or your computer. If possible save the picture at around 300 dpi. If you crop your picture before sending it, then try to have the picture size in the ratio of 25:19; we can work well from a 25cm x 19cm image. If your image is not to these proportions, we will, at our experienced discretion, crop to fit our template or, where this is not possible, fill with a plain coloured border.
Please do not send digital images taken from websites and email (including Facebook) as the quality is likely to be very low and some may infringe copyright law. You can check the size of your images on your computer, and you should ensure that the image size is at least 500kb , preferably 1mb or over. If your image is over 5mb, please reduce the dimensions and leave the resolution as high as possible (unless it is a bmp file).
The best file formats to use are jpg, jpeg, tiff and pdf. Try to avoid sending Powerpoint files, and if you need to send a bmp file, please be aware that the quality is a lot lower for the size of file than other graphics file types. Please do not send Word files (doc), Playstation files or images created on little known software.
If you are posting photographs, send only high quality prints (no larger than A5) and not photocopies or scans. You can also send negatives. Please be aware that we return your pictures or negatives by 1st Class post with your jigsaw. If your picture is larger than A5, it will not fit into the jigsaw box so please send a large enough stamped addressed envelope, or £1.00 postage stamps to cover return 1st class postage to you.
The best quality picture will make into the best print quality jigsaws. Ryco always produce to a very high standard, but the outcome will always depend on the quality of the original picture. Please remember that your small picture is greatly enlarged, and small imperfections, such as out of focus, low resolution, or over exposed pictures, enlarge as well. Please note the finished size of your chosen jigsaw and that we may have to crop, losing some picture detail, or add in borders to your picture to fit that size.

Delivery of your finished personalised jigsaw.
The manufacturing process begins when we receive your picture. Once manufactured, your jigsaw is normally posted by Royal Mail 1st Class post. It is packed in a specially designed box and outer so that it can be posted through a standard post/letter box at your home. If you have a smaller sized letter box, or if there is no one at home when the postman calls, a Post Office card will be left and the puzzle taken to your local sorting office for your collection. You should normally receive your puzzle within 7 working days (excluding weekends), although at Christmas time this will be extended.
I just wanted to let you know that I received my puzzle today. Everyone at work is very impressed with how good it looks and I can't wait for our colleague to open it on Friday. Thank you so much for the prompt service; I would definitely recommend you to anyone wanting a personalised jigsaw.
