Not Sure Which Size To Choose?

What size will work best for you? Our recommendations are as follows:

  • 100 pieces: Children 6-7 years old

  • 260 pieces: Children 8-9 years & adults

  • 500 pieces: Children 10+ & adults (5+ hours are often required)

  • 1000 pieces: Children 10+ & adults (10+ hours are often required)

The level of difficulty and time required may vary based on the uploaded photos. Rule of thumb is the more colorful the photos are, the easier the puzzle process seems to be.

What Is The Recommended Image Resolution?

The higher the resolution, the better the quality of your printed photo puzzle. The final product also depends strongly on the resolution of the original digital photo.

If your image has a minimum length of 1600 pixels on its longest side, this is sufficient for a puzzle of 100, 260 pieces. This measurement corresponds approximately to a picture taken with a 2-megapixel camera. For a puzzle consisting of 500 and 1000 pieces, we recommend a minimum of 2500 pixels, corresponding to a 4-megapixel digital camera/phone camera.

We recommend a minimum dpi (dots per inch) of 100 dpi and a maximum of 300 dpi. Our customizer will let you know if your image is the best resolution for the puzzle you select. If it’s not sufficient, it will give you a warning sign so you can select a different image.

What File Formats Do You Support And What Is The Maximum File Size?

We only process JPG (jpg, jpeg) and PNG formats. Most digital cameras automatically take pictures in the required JPG format!

The maximum file size you can upload is 50MB (megabyte) per file.

How Long Will It Take To Process An Order?

Generally, orders are processed within 2-3 business days and are shipped fast. This time may vary during any holidays or at various times during the year, such as graduation time, Mother's Day, Valentine’s Day and Christmas orders may take more time to process.

We offer rush order service at these times for an additional fee. Please contact customer service at for more information.
