Making a Jigsaw Puzzle from a Photo, Misty My Dog

Misty Amongst Sensible Shoes

I've shown you our little blind, deaf, and elderly dog Misty in a previous post, but this photo looked like it would be a great jigsaw puzzle! Wouldn't that be a fun one?  Anyway, there's no place she would rather be than near me, and the next best thing is our shoes. Lots of good smellin' there, I guess.

Have you ever had a jigsaw puzzle made from a photo? Which company did you use? I see that Shutterfly will make puzzles from one's photo, but I want to make sure that if I spend the money to do this, the pieces are a good quality. Got any ideas?

i used this company a few years ago for one of my pond photos. i was pleased with the 16x20 puzzle i ordered. it is a bit expensive, but i've fixed it several times. the pieces are good quality but they are thin - not like those thick old-time picture puzzles.

No, I've never had a puzzle made. Your photo of Misty looks like it would be a great one! Hope you're able to get the info you need...

I have never had a puzzle made from a photo. This is a precious picture of Misty.

Truth be told, I've never worked on a jigsaw puzzle!

Maureen @ Josephina Ballerina said...

Had a puzzle made a decade ago I guess. Used one of those online photo sharing sites. Can't remember which one it was. Snapfish maybe? Very disappointed. Pieces thin and cheap.

Sandra said...

i said a big awwwwww when I saw this photo... it is just precious.. i have not tried the puzzle thing, so am no help...

Debby@Just Breathe said...

That photo would make a great puzzle. I haven't had one made but I do like Shutterfly's products. I love the quality of Springbok puzzles which I usually buy. If TexWisGirl says she liked her's I would trust her opinion! Can't believe Blackberry Lane has never worked on one.....

Cathy said...

I love that photo and you are right, that would be an awesome puzzle. I have never had one made, so I am no help. Sorry.

Stephanie said...

Oh Judy, Misty is absolutely precious! This photo would make such a sweet puzzle!

My husband and I had one made from one of our engagement pictures and we had it out at our reception for people to put together while we had our pictures taken. I can't remember who I went through (sorry about that), but it turned out nice and well-made.

Enjoy your weekend!

Terri D. said...

I have never had one made, but your photo is perfect, and will be such a keepsake to treasure! I hope you find a good place to have it done.

What a great idea for your beautiful photo. I love jigsaw puzzles but have never had one made. xo Laura

Rachel said...

Love that photo!! I've used Shutterfly for books and photos, and have never been disappointed. I bet their puzzles are good too!

I hope you are doing great, sorry I haven't been around much lately!

Actually, I've had one done for my nephew a while ago from a photo...and I used Walgreens. It was in expensive, very clear, and after he finished it we used the puzzle glue and he framed it.

LOVE this dog...how precious.

Botanic Bleu said...

What a great idea to make a puzzle of your photo. Like others, I haven't ever had one made. So, no advice.

Thanks for stopping by this morning and leaving a lovely comment. You are an early riser! Or an all-nighter! :)

Love that photo of your dog. Bless it's heart. It's funny you mention picture puzzles. We have a puzzle factory in our town and they make puzzles from photos. I have not had one done, but I sure thought it would make a nice Christmas gift, don't you think? Blessings for a great weekend, xoxo,Susie

It would make a darling puzzle, Judy! My MIL did one of a picture of our daughter as a child, she used Walmart.

Primitive Stars said...

Awww I love that picture of Misty, contentment, Blessings Francine.

Noelle the dreamer said...

In answer to your question Judy, no I have never had a puzzle made before but this is such a wonderful shot, I would be sure to have it enlarged and framed!
P.S. Misty knows whom she can trust!
Blessings,

Farm Girl said...

That is a lovely photo. What a good friend she is, I have never done made a puzzle but I have always thought about doing it.
I hope you find a great company to do it for you. That is a really great idea.

podso said...

I haven't made a puzzle either but you are right, this would make a great one!

Donna said...

That would be a good puzzle! I've never tried out a photo puzzle service.

Vee said...

I have used Shutterfly for other services...memorial cards for a funeral, photo printing, and albums. I have been happy with the results. This would make a wonderful puzzle.

eileeninmd said...

Good Morning, Judy. thanks again for sharing your post with my critter party. I love your cute doggie.. Happy weekend!

Tammy Chrzan said...

It really would make a perfect puzzle... The puppy, carpet and shoes all in dark colors!!! I believe that snapfish.com also offers puzzles, I always order from them!
I Hope you're well and I'm sorry I've not visited more often! I do think about you!
Much love to you and I Hope you're having a fantastic weekend!

Valerie said...

Dear Judy,
What a precious photo. That would make a fabulous puzzle. My 9 year old loves puzzles and collects them. He said he would definitely love a puzzle like this. ;) Misty looks like such a love. Blessings and Sunshine, Valerie

Carla from The River said...

Hi,
I love the photo. And I think it is a great idea.
We use Snapfish and MPIX for our photo-books and prints. We have not had a puzzle made, but we are very happy with the work we have had done by both companies.

What a great puzzle this would make! I was once part of a group of ladies who got together every few weeks to work on puzzles (and talk), and we would have loved this.

Robin said...

This picture is so adorable!!! It would be great as a puzzle.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I never made a photo into a jig saw puzzle--that is a wonderful idea! Your dog looks happy resting by the shoe!

Margaret Adamson said...

Misty is adorable and this shot would make a good jigsaw puzzle

Debby Ray said...

What a sweet picture of Misty! You are right, it would make a great puzzle. Do you have jig saw? Maybe you could make your own?

GratefulPrayerThankfulHeart said...

Oh, sweet Misty! She looks comfy in amongst your comfy shoes. I LOVE jigsaw puzzles and just removed one from my dining room table recently. It is a hummingbird that I have completed numerous times.

The photo of Misty will make a delightful puzzle!

Thanks for joining Perfectly Precious Pets :)

Kindly,
Lorraine
