Round Knob Jigsaw Puzzle Cutting Style - MGC's personalized wooden jigsaw puzzles for serious enthusiasts and collectors of wood jigsaw puzzles

Traditional Round Knob Cutting Style
Hand Crafted, Custom Made, One of a Kind Wooden Jigsaw Puzzles by Mark G. Cappitella

For my Jigsaw Puzzle Price Chart... please scroll down this page.

My Traditional Round Knob Style jigsaw puzzle piece is a great looking piece that is a fun to solve. This is a nice cut style for the common jigsaw puzzle lover, as well as the advanced jigsaw puzzle enthusaist. A personalized jigsaw puzzle is a wonderful way for your family and friends to gather for some quality time together. Whether for an evening in front of the fire, or a long weekend, or a large jigsaw puzzle that sits out on it's own designated table for the family to gather around for an hour each night over many weeks, a Hand crafted wooden jigsaw puzzle will be something special for you all to cherish.

I give very special, detailed attention to your personal pictures when I carve them, in order preserve important aspects such as faces, words and special objects. You also have the option to have me include special figure shaped pieces, in your puzzle. You receive 2 free for each 100 pieces of puzzle that you order, and additional special figure shaped pieces are available for $7.50 each.

(A) Pricing & Piece Count
Puzzle piece ratio is very important
as my very best puzzles are cut at a ratio of 2.2 pieces per square inch of puzzle picture area. For true wooden jigsaw puzzle enthusiasts and collectors, the 2.2 pieces per square inch size puzzle is by far the most common size ordered, and the most collectible.

For example an 8"x10" picture = 80 square inches. 80 x 2.2 pcs. = 175 puzzle pieces from that size photo or art print. (rounded numbers)

11"x14" = 155" sq. x 2.2pcs. = 340 puzzle pieces...
14"x17" = 238" sq. x 2.2pcs. = 520 puzzle pieces...
16"x20" = 320" sq. x 2.2pcs. = 700 puzzle pieces... etc.

(B) Pricing & Piece Count
In October 2004, I started adding a 2nd pricing structure to my Traditional Cut Style jigsaw puzzle pieces, to cater to the somewhat common request that I receive from my customers. They requests I receive are for slightly larger puzzle pieces than 2.2 pieces per square inch, for a variety of reasons.
1) Some people want seniors to be able to see and handle the pieces better.
2) Some customers are looking for a nice hand crafted jigsaw puzzle but want to try to reduce the cost a little.
3) Some others are simply looking for something that is not quite as challenging as a full blown 2.2
piece per square inch puzzle cut. That is why I have introduced the 1.5 piece per square inch size puzzle piece and Pricing chart below. You can see this new information on it in the 2nd pair of columns below.

These larger pieces do take slightly longer to cut, thus I do charge 25¢ more per puzzle piece, than the 2.2 Pieces Per Square Inch size, however the reduced piece count still created a cost savings of about 21%.

For example an 8"x10" picture = 80 square inches. 80 x 1.5 pcs. = 120 puzzle pieces from that size photo or art print. (rounded numbers)

11"x14" = 155" sq. x 1.5pcs. = 230 puzzle pieces...
14"x17" = 238" sq. x 1.5pcs. = 360 puzzle pieces...
16"x20" = 320" sq. x 1.5pcs. = 480 puzzle pieces... etc.

* Pricing is based on 2.2 puzzle pieces per square inch of the total image area.

Additional Fees that may, or may not, apply to your puzzle order, include be the following services.

1) Scanning / Printing fee for images sent to me A) on a Zip Disc / CD ROM, or B) from pictures and negatives sent to me, or C) selected off of this web site, that need to be scanned and/or re-printed. All Printing up to 24" x 40" is done right here in our shop. The finest quality Achival Paper is used, along with 200 year rated fade resistent inks, and all images are printed at a resolution of 1,440dpi, which is wonderful and crisp color.

2) Connecticut residents pay 6% Sales Tax - All other US states are Tax Free - International orders are not taxed by the US, however you are responsible for any import tariffs placed on the puzzle order from your country's customs officials.

3) Shipping and handling Information.

4) Extra Prints of your photo enlargement, are available in a variety of sizes, as extra prints.

5) I have a special pen that I recommend you use to sign the wooden puzzle backs. They are available in BLACK, RED and BLUE, and cost $3.00 each. I suggest that you order at least ONE pen for every 20-25 guests. (If you have 125 people at your wedding, it would take forever for them to all share using just 1 pen, but by using 5-6 pens, ALL of your guests will be able to sign the puzzle in less then an hour.) This special pen is Guaranteed for long lasting permanence because it is a "pigment Ink" pen that is instant drying and non bleeding. It writes wonderfully, and you can use it for years to come to write notes on the back of your family photographs or other keepsake type documents.

If you would like fewer pieces in your puzzle to help reduce the cost, you may easily do so. Puzzles with fewer pieces will be easier to solve however. As long as you order at least as many pieces as there are TOTAL square inches in the image area (See image sizes above for Examples), the price of your puzzle can be calculated by the following: $25.00 base price, plus $2.00 per puzzle piece. If you request a piece count that is smaller than the square inch area of the image, you will need to look at my LARGE Cut Style page of my web site for pricing.
