The Wimberley Puzzle Company Difference
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.
Wimberley Puzzle Company puzzle prints are color-calibrated for our paper of choice and then printed on a professional Canon wide format printer.
Our paper is a thick and durable 12 mil (.012") matte finish photo paper. Anti-reflective and anti-fingerprint - meant to be handled and enjoyed. Our paper features a bright white surface, with a luxurious matte finish that brings out the beauty of the images. This paper relishes the opportunity to put on display even the smallest nuances of detail. Much of puzzling is about the tactile sensation of the pieces - this paper is slightly textured due to the matte finish and feels luxurious in your hands.
Extra Thick Puzzleboard
Our extrathick puzzleboard is a high quality, three-layer laminated solid board comprised of 100% post-consumer recycled material for sustainability. It measures .06" inches thick, which is approximately twice as thick as a typical puzzle that you'll find at big box stores. Our heavyweight, matte photo paper measures .012" for a finished piece that is .072" thick. With high-quality materials comes extra durability. You'll feel the difference right out of the box and with each piece you place.
1/8" Baltic Birch
Our premium puzzle backing offering is 1/8" thick Baltic Birch imported from the Baltics. We chose Baltic Birch because of its consistency, quality and sustainability. The plys 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.
