How Thick Are Jigsaw Puzzles Supposed To Be?

by Donna Brown October 10, 2018

Frequently, our customers ask, "How thick are your puzzles?"  It's a tough question to answer because there are so many thicknesses, different boards, and I can spend hours telling you why we chose the best board in the business, which is 100% recycled!  Instead, here's a visual to SHOW you the difference.

The Missing Piece Puzzle Company has thick puzzles that are durable.  White puzzle pieces compared to competitors.

I made an 8x10 inch puzzle with 30 pieces and compared it to our competitors 8x10 inch puzzle with 30 pieces to see how it would stack up. The Missing Piece Puzzle Companies puzzle is on the right-hand side.  Same size and same piece count.  A picture is worth a thousand words.
