@The NYC Toy fair 2008 I was pleasantly surprised to find Liberty Puzzles. Liberty Puzzles are classic wooden jigsaw puzzles, made with real maple-veneer plywood and archival paper and inks. Each puzzle image is mounted on quarter-inch plywood, and then laser-cut to all sorts of puzzle designs and shapes (the pieces are little gears, people, etc for example). They have a special coating that protects the art when it’s cut by a laser, this of course was interesting to me – it was good to talk about lasers with someone else who has a laser.
(Made in USA!).

My friend’s grandmother used to make puzzles like this with a modified sewing machine. She attached a jigsaw blade to it and cut out the pieces. She was more evil than this though because her pieces were random shapes and she would cut along colour transitions. Good fun
Liberty Puzzles is one of our favorite vendors- they did a custom designed puzzle for our museum store that truly raised the bar on custom items for us. And best of all? The crew is easy to work with in addition to making a wonderful, quality product.
