About

I'm a massive fan of jigsaw puzzles. When my family gathers around the table, and everyone is looking for that one piece that is needed to complete the section we are working on....well, that is one of my favorite times in life. Puzzles with great art are one my hallmarks for a great puzzling experience. After struggling to find puzzles that spoke to me, I decided to create my line of puzzles with some of my favorite artists. To that goal, ArtOrder, LLC is teaming up with six amazing artists in 2019 to bring you a line of stellar premium puzzles. 

When I talk about premium puzzles, the first question I get is "What makes the puzzles premium?"

  • Great licensed art chosen specifically for their use in puzzles
  • Printed in full-color, at a breathtaking 18"x24" size
  • 700 piece puzzles made using hand-made dies
  • Soy-based inks
  • Thick 2mm pieces
  • Environmentally friendly biodegradable bags

The Puzzle

Our first puzzle of the year is created by Stephanie Law  and features the artwork "When Flowers Dream." The image is filled with subtle and flowing detail through the puzzle and features Stephanie's signature style. The puzzle will have a retail launch in May of 2019 - a perfect match for your spring flowers (in the northern hemisphere).

About The Artist

Stephanie Law's work is an exploration of mythology mixed with her personal symbolism. Her art journeys through surreal otherworlds, populated by dreamlike figures, masked creatures, and winged shadows. The fantastical permeates through the visions with a promise that this is a world that underlies reality when viewed with a desire for beauty and a shifted perception.

Archetypes, the basis for the universal appeal of mythological concepts, is one of the defining inspirations for her imagery. This is mingled with the movement of dance. Stephanie has been a dancer for almost two decades, and she uses that experience of how the human body moves and emotes to create a bridge into her artwork so that not only do the humans dance across the page, but the branches of her trees move with a sinuous grace, and the arrangement of inanimate elements has a choreographed rhythm and flow.

She began her illustration career working with many fantasy gaming companies. Early on, she did pieces for Wizards of the Coast in Magic: the Gathering and Forgotten Realms, as well as with Skotos Tech (Castle Marrach), White Wolf (Changeling), Alderac Entertainment (Legend of Five Rings), and Green Ronin (Blue Rose). She also worked with publishing companies LUNA Books, Tachyon Books, Palazzo Editions, Llewellyn Worldwide, and f+w Publishing.

She currently showcases her personal work in group and solo exhibitions at galleries in New York, San Francisco, Nashville, and San Diego, while continuing to publish book collections of her art via Shadowscapes Press. The most recent volume is  Descants and Cadences. Her work has also been included in the Spectrum annual of fantastic art in for several years, and at the Spectrum showcase in September 2014 at the Society of Illustrators in NY. Her botanical art has been showcased in international juried exhibitions at botanical gardens and arboretums. Recent work features insects, imaginative plants, and fae creatures, interwoven into a miniature world that is often overlooked when size and physical permanence is equated with importance.

SHIPPING

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 logistic plan means pledges originating from the USA, Canada, Australia, Asia, and the EU will ship locally from those locations. All shipping will include tracking, when available.

This plan helps reduce most of the frequent 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.  Fulfillment surveys MUST be received by the deadline to receive reduced shipping rates. Surveys that are not received by the deadline will have their rewards shipped to our US office, and you will have to pay additional shipping costs to receive your rewards.

This plan 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 goal protects you from inflated shipping estimates and guarantees that every single puzzle gets shipped.

All puzzles will be shipped in ECT 32 Single Wall Corrugated Kraft with 65 lbs. internal weight rating cardboard shipping boxes with bubble wrap for protection. This increases our packaging and shipping costs, but we feel it is far more critical that you receive your rewards intact and in good condition than it is to scrimp on a few pennies in cost.

How shipping is figured:

Unless you are Amazon, shipping is expensive. It is often the most expensive component of product development. The shipping charge is a combination of: the actual costs to ship the item from the warehouse to the final destination (the puzzle weighs 23 ounces with all of the shipping materials included) + the cost of the shipping materials + the pick and pack fees. We do not treat shipping as a profit margin generator.

Estimated Shipping Fees:

  • Australia $11-17 depending on region
  • Austria $11
  • Belgium $11
  • Brazil $31
  • Canada $20
  • China $9
  • Denmark $13
  • Finland $15
  • France $9
  • Germany $10
  • Hong Kong $9
  • Ireland $12
  • Italy $12
  • Israel $22
  • Japan $18
  • Malaysia $18

  • Netherlands $13
  • Norway $15
  • Russia $36
  • Singapore $18
  • South Korea $18
  • Spain $12
  • Sweden $13
  • Switzerland $19
  • Taiwan $18
  • Thailand $18
  • United Kingdom $11 (can be affected by Brexit without notice)
  • United States $11-$17 depending on region

Risks and challenges

Common Risks:
While ArtOrder, LLC tries to take every consideration into account for a smooth and efficient campaign - life will be life and issues can occur that are outside of our control. Weather, shipping issues, trade disputes, Brexit, port closures...are all world events that can affect the timing of manufacturing and fulfillment. Our goal is always to do whatever it takes to ensure you get your rewards in a timely manner and we will do our utmost to achieve that goal.
