COVID-19 Specific Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Are you still open for orders during the Coronavirus lockdown?
We are taking orders again for our personalized jigsaw puzzles. This applies to our cardboard jigsaw puzzles only. We are doing this under the UK Government's guidance that online stores can remain open and we are operating as safely as possible. We understand how much jigsaw puzzles are helping people during this period of isolation, so as long as it's safe and we can, we will make and send jigsaw puzzles. In order to keep safe, we cannot make any other personalised gifts, like wooden jigsaws, framed items and other made to order items.
Q. How long will it take for my order to arrive?
During this time, we are asking our customers up to allow 25 days for orders to arrive. As we are working with a small team in the warehouse to keep them as safe as possible, we need more time to get your orders out to you. Delivery times are also taking a little longer as delivery companies take this same approach. Thank you for your patience during this time.
Q. Can I catch Coronavirus from your handmade puzzles?
We manufacture jigsaws in our Devon factory and are following all government guidelines relating to COVID-19 . Staff are practicing social distancing and all workstations are disinfected regularly. The jigsaws are indeed hand made, and they are then handed over to Royal Mail who handle the parcel manually.

A.To identify each puzzle please open up each box, loose inside the box you will find a small piece of cardboard that contains the center information for that particular puzzle.

A. Yes, although we operate primarily as a mail order company, customers are welcome to collect their own orders directly from us. Please always phone in advance so that we can check that stock is available or your order has been manufactured. Please bear in mind that products that are created to order, for example site-centered jigsaws, take up to 7 days to manufacture so orders need to be received well in advance of collection date.

A. Yes, we can! If you do not have an exact address of the location, please call our one of our Customer Services team, on 1-866-589-0274, and we will be able to establish a center point with you. Or if you have managed to obtain co- ordinates, please just call us with these details.

A. Yes. We are also able to offer Jigsaws for the UK, Canada, Germany and The Netherlands, and hope to expand this range further in the future!
Q. What is a ‘Whimsey’?
A. Whimsies were invented by Victorian craftsmen who cut jigsaw shaped pieces on a whim! Our whimsies are chosen according to the type of jigsaw base that you have selected, i.e. for our Map based jigsaws the central piece will be a house shape, for the newspapers - yes it’s a newspaper! And, for our deluxe wooden jigsaw puzzles each will have many more whimsies within!
Q. Can I have my personalized gift sent to me tomorrow?
A. Unfortunately not. All our personalized gifts are unique to you and are handmade by our team of specialist craftsmen. And, because they are all individually crafted, we need time to ensure that they are produced to the high standard that you and we require. Our methods are traditional, so we do need a few days to make sure you have the perfect gift!
