How to Design Your Own Custom Puzzle

Are you like me and always struggling to find unique gifts for family? I always stress during birthday and holidays and end up just giving family and friends gift cards because I am so worried that they won’t like their gift. Someone recently suggested that I look into gifting family personalized gifts with my kids pictures and I thought that was an excellent suggestion. I then discovered that you can actually create your own puzzle online! I have been a lover of puzzles since I was a little girl and we do them as a family all of the time. Both sides of our family are also really big on doing puzzles, so it only made sense that this would be a great gift for them. I decided to do some searching online because I was interested in making a puzzle that would feature our children (grandparents love anything with the grandkids on it) and I discovered a website called Pixels. They offer a really easy way to design your own custom puzzle online and I am excited to share that with you!

Pixels allows you to transform your personal photos into custom jigsaw puzzles. You can choose from two different sizes: 18″ x 24″ (500 pieces) and 20″ x 28″ (1,000 pieces).

How to Design Your Own Custom Puzzle

The first step is to upload your favorite image, they even give you the option to upload directly from your Instagram account. Once you upload your image, you can adjust the image size and move the image around so it is exactly how you want it. They share a few images of the puzzle with your personal image on it so that you can see what it will look like before you even order it. I will share some images down below of what my personal puzzle looks like when I uploaded an image of my two youngest daughters.

This image above shows exactly how you can manipulative your photo so it is placed exactly where you want it to on the custom puzzle, so there are no surprises when your puzzle arrives at your door. You can also choose a puzzle that is horizontal or vertical. 



Your custom puzzle arrives in a box with your image printed on cover. Designing the custom puzzle is extremely simple and took me less than five minutes, the most time-consuming part was trying to decide which image I wanted to use! Not a big fan of puzzles? That is OK! You can take that favorite picture of yours and use their website to design your own iPhone case as well! Their platform is super user friendly and their prices are also very affordable. This is a great website to shop unique gifts for family and friends all year long!
