Bone Owl Jigsaw Puzzles

Bone Owl Puzzles wants to mix things up a bit when it comes to how people think of jigsaw puzzles. This means going off the beaten path and seeking out the kinds of artists you probably already follow on social media right now. The ones that inspire and excite you with their unique artistic styles and the kinds of themes that really interest you. 

Over the last year, Bone Owl Puzzles has collaborated directly with talented artists like this from around the world to create original and exciting offbeat jigsaw puzzle illustrations that you'll love putting together. 

Themes for this first round of puzzles include: Naturalism, Folklore, Surrealism, Mythology and the visual style of the Retrowave music genre.

Here's what we're doing to ensure these illustrations are transformed into the best 1,000 piece puzzles possible:

  • Made in the USA at the top jigsaw puzzle factory in North America
  • Linen textured finish to reduce gloss and provide a much nicer look and feel
  • Random cut style jigsaw pattern for much more interesting piece shapes
  • Thicker puzzle board so each piece snaps in place easily and holds together tightly
  • Independent artists illustrated every piece from scratch, showcasing their unique style and offbeat theme

To make shipping as effortless and affordable as possible, we will be sending all the puzzles in bulk to shipping hubs around the world before forwarding them to you. This means pledges originating from the USA, Canada, Australia and the EU will ship locally from those locations. 

This helps reduce most of the common headaches and costs associated with backing projects from these international locations (such as VAT, customs, duties, etc.)  

PLEASE NOTE: Shipping will only be charged AFTER the campaign ends using our Kickstarter pledge manager.  

This ensures that only the most practical and affordable shipping method is chosen for all backers based on real world numbers and not best guesses. This protects you from inflated shipping estimates and guarantees that every single puzzle gets shipped.

 

Bone Owl Puzzles is doing things differently. We’re working directly with artists who inspire us and we're paying them upfront to create original works of art we think you’ll love putting together. We encourage the unusual and demand that they use the full extent of their creative freedom

By pledging for this project you are supporting indy artists and proving that this can work! That artists can be paid fairly for their time and produce stunning images that fall off the beaten path. 

If that wasn't enough, we also offer a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee - If you aren't entirely happy with our puzzles for any reason we will happily refund you entirely. 

So please, scroll back up and select the pledge you like. We promise you won't be disappointed. 

As crazy as this sounds, there are still a lot of people out there who haven't heard about Bone Owl Puzzles yet. 

With your help, we can spread the word and help make this project even more of a success!

Risks and challenges

Art & Licensing: It was extremely important to us that the artists were paid for their time and effort regardless of the outcome of this Kickstarter. This means each artist has already been fully compensated and proper licensing for their work is already in place.

Production: We have been talking with our USA factory for months now and all costs and timelines associated with production have been worked out in advance. At this point they are just waiting for us to place the order. Communication with our factory has also been fantastic and we expect to be in regular contact with them (and you) throughout the production process.

Shipping: This is always the biggest risk and challenge for any project that delivers physical products. For that reason, we have been in touch with shipping partners who have successfully delivered some of the top Kickstarter projects of all time. With their help, we expect to make this as easy and affordable as it possibly can be for all our backers.

Our Experience: While this may be our first Kickstarter, we do have considerable experience working with other physical product based projects and businesses in the past. We are well equipped to handle all the major and minor challenges that a project like this might encounter.
