Bad (jigsaw) language

Bad (jigsaw) language

Bad (jigsaw) language One thing we have noticed since getting into the jigsaw business is how little uniformity of language there is. The biggest issue this poses is how to describe what type of jigsaw you like doing, and identifying this type on the shelf before opening the box.  Yesterday we bought a Tomax 1500 piece jigsaw - we looked at about 150 choices and struggled to agree on an image (why we started EOG in the first place). We eventually settled on this As we started sorting the pieces, it became immediately clear that there were some significant differences between...

We've been framed

We've been framed A number of our customers have asked us about framing jigsaws...and thankfully, it is a super easy process. Our jigsaws measure 695x495mm, meaning they will fit perfectly in a 700x500 frame such as this one from IKEA http://www.ikea.com/au/en/catalog/products/20268875/  Because of the perfect fit, gluing isn't necessary, which not only saves time and effort, but leaves the picture unblemished, and allows you to pull it down and do it all over again in the future! Also, there's no need to do the jigsaw on the backing frame. Our pieces fit together snugly, so its easy to simply slide it...

Wait...is that a dog doing a jigsaw?

Wait...is that a dog doing a jigsaw?

Wait is that a dog doing a jigsaw It's fair to say our two little dogs receive a fair chunk of our attention; and rightfully so.  These two beautiful boys provide so much love and plenty of smiles, but since we have been spending more time doing and designing jigsaws, we have noticed a bit of a behavioural change in Dexter. It started with laying under the table on a dining chair next to us...but apparently that wasn't being involved enough. The natural escalation was to get a better perspective   Dexter inspects 'the heart of the matter' - buy...

What's your jigsaw journey?

What's your jigsaw journey?

What's your jigsaw journey? Since we came up with EOG, Tasch and I have received a lot of feedback about how people do jigsaws, and what they look for in a good jigsaw. We set out with a particular style in mind, with a balance between the two approaches to jigsawing - visual identification and shape perception. Visual identification is the process of colour and image alignment, and is done in conjunction with the picture scroll in our instance, or the box for a standard jigsaw. Shape perception is the analysis of the unique characteristics of the cut of the piece...
