Besides selling unique jigsaw puzzles and designs, Jiggy Puzzles also offers a subscription service, where you can get new products and promotions ahead of time and access to a private community.
This jigsaw puzzle is made of premium chipboard with thick puzzle pieces and a soft-touch matte finish that fit together perfectly to create a display-worthy puzzle. You can use the included glue to transform your masterpiece once you finish the puzzle, into wall art decor.
In the beginning, Kaylin contacted female artists in the New York area and start working with them to contribute designs for her puzzles, and later reached out to female artists from all over the globe.
