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.
