About


A few years back I was at a garage sale and saw a box of old 35mm slides.  No one seemed to be interested in it and I became curious as to what kind of pictures were in there.  I held one up to the sky and saw a girl opening Christmas presents under an aluminum tree.  The slide was stamped ‘December 1956.’ I picked up the next one and the next one and it wasn’t long before I bought the box.  Although I didn’t know any of the people in the pictures, I became obsessed with the clothes, the haircuts, and the spaces in the photos.  I immediately felt like I could do something with the images so that other people could enjoy them as much as I did.  

In 2018 we introduced our first collection of prints (after a good amount of editing and retouching) as artwork in a collection called ‘Other People’s Memories.’  It wasn’t long before people were suggesting other uses for the pictures and jigsaw puzzles were at the top of the list.  We immediately loved the idea and started trying to figure out how to launch the collection.   We found out that the minimum orders for production were really high and the process of customization proved expensive.  We decided to launch a Kickstarter to help us cover some of the costs and selected images that we thought would be interesting and challenging for the intermediate puzzler.  We’re excited to share our work with everyone and we hope that this is the beginning of a long tradition of sharing ‘Other People’s Memories.’

Risks and challenges

This being our 3rd Kickstarter campaign, we are familiar with the potential risks and challenges. Our goal is to launch our products by the end of the month but keep in mind this is only a time estimate. What we learned from our previous campaigns is that there can be challenges when the product is being shipped such as production delays, shipping delays and customs delays. Due to this challenge some backers may receive rewards before others depending on the state/country. We plan to go the extra mile to guarantee our backers get the rewards they deserve in a timely manner. If for some unpredicted reason a backer's rewards are not delivered at all, the backer will be fully refunded.
