Product Review: Custom Photo Puzzle from Collage.com


From time to time, Word Spelunking is asked to write product reviews. Sometimes these are book related products, sometimes they are not. Today, I have a non-book related product review to share...




For this review I received a custom photo puzzlespecifically, a Kids 11x14 30-pieces puzzle. The custom photo puzzles also come in these sizes: Kids 16x20 56-pieces, Adult 8x10 110-pieces, Adult 11x14 252-pieces, Adult 16x20 520-pieces, Adult 20x20 676-pieces, and Adult 20x30 1014-pieces. Collage.com describes their custom photo puzzles as: 
  • Vibrant printing on high-quality, glossy photo paper with a firm backing 
  • Includes sturdy black storage box with your design on the label 
  • Add as many or as few photos as you want - every photo puzzle is your own! 
  • Printed in the USA 

I’m a huge fan of Collage’s website because it so easy to navigate and use! The design editor is especially a breeze to use. Once you start a custom photo project, you can upload your photos from your computer, Facebook, Google Photos, or Instagram, and photos upload quickly. And I love that you can add as many or as little photos as you want to your custom project(s). I decided to make a custom puzzle for my five year old niece and I had so much fun designing it!  

Collage offers SO many designs, layouts, backgrounds, and all-around options. They’ve made designing their puzzles super easy by offering pre-made designs and layouts depending on how many pictures you want to use. Editing (cropping, adding filters, etc) and rearranging photos is super easy and just takes a few clicks. For our puzzle, I chose six photos of my niece with her mommy and daddy and chose the cute Family Sticks Together design. From patterns, holidays, kids, a pattern builder, and more, there are 11 background categories and dozens of different backgrounds to choose from. You can even add text to your puzzles and the designer builder makes sure your text is perfectly placed and aligned.  

Production and shipping times are awesomely quick; my custom photo puzzles arrived less than a week after placing my order. The puzzles come in a sturdy storage box with a picture of your puzzle on the front: 


The printing and picture quality are excellent! Our photos are bright and clear, with no fuzziness or distortion. The actual pieces feel very sturdy, are the perfect large size for little hands, and fit together perfectly. My niece absolutely loved her puzzle and put it together three times in row! 





Overall, from the website, design builder, production, shipping, and product quality I am very impressed. The custom photo puzzle makes a wonderfully unique and one of a kind gift that people of all ages will enjoy and treasure.

This sounds like a great gift for someone. I like that it is so personal. I usually only like Harry Potter puzzles- but I think I can get into a personalized one too. :)
