Big Shell Beach, Man O' War
Padre Island National Seashore, Texas
Big Shell Beach Man O' War is available in a 250 or 500-piece, artist signed jigsaw puzzle from the Artist Signature Series. Head south, beyond the "4x4 Only Beyond This Point" sign at Padre Island National Seashore and eventually you'll arrive at the little known, yet spectacular, Big Shell Beach. Big Shell Beach is named for reasons that are obvious at first glance; at a point of two ocean current converging, millions of common arc, coquina, cockle, and quahog seashells wash up the beach until it is solid seashell. Along with seashells, sometimes come colorful, yet dangerous, Man O' War jellyfish, as depicted in this jigsaw puzzle.
The Wimberley Puzzle Company Artist Signature Series Jigsaw Puzzles are manufactured using the highest quality materials: including extra thick and durable puzzle board backing, premium professional Luster Photography Paper with a beautiful matte finish, and soft-touch finish for long-term protection and durability of your puzzle. And the Artist Signature Series? Each puzzle contains one special piece signed by the artist.
We strive to use the highest quality materials in manufacturing our puzzles here at the Wimberley Puzzle Company - from the puzzle backing, to the print, and finally to the box we put everything in.
We offer two puzzle backing materials for you to choose from:
1/4" Baltic Birch
Our premium puzzle backing offering is 1/4" thick Baltic Birch imported from Europe. We chose Baltic Birch because of its consistency, quality and sustainability. The plies consist of 100% birch wood - meaning no fillers or unknown softwoods. Birch is an abundant and fast growing species of tree and this sustainability was part of our decision.
Our extrathick puzzleboard is comprised of 100% post-consumer recycled material for sustainability. It measures .08" inches thick, which is approximately twice as thick as a typical puzzle that you'll find at big box stores. Our heavyweight, luster photo paper measures .01" for a finished piece that is .09" thick. With high-quality materials comes extra durability. You'll feel the difference right out of the box.
