I know it looks a little intimidating, but as you go through the form, you will find that it is really quite straight forward, and asks many relevant questions. There may be a few fields of information that do not apply to your order, depending on the type of puzzle you are ordering. Just skip over those fields.

*Due Date your puzzle is needed by:

  - Month / Day / Year - ie: July 15, 2010... or ... 07/15/2010

Orders are sorted and prioritized by Due Date.

Unless this is a Rush Order, do "not" type in the last possible date that you need to take possession of your puzzle. Delays do occasionally occur for a variety of reasons. If you are ordering a puzzle with more than 20 days lead time, indicate a date that is 1 week before you actually need your puzzle.

Shipping delays do occur due to personal reasons, as well as severe weather across our country. (Especially from November to April with Snow and Ice causing havoc at airports. is in Connecticut, and almost all all FedEx Planes are routed through Tennessee. If New England or Tennessee have bad weather conditions, FedEx Planes have been known to remain grounded and thus delayed. Please DO NOT use a date, that is your drop dead last possible date of delivery on your order. ALWAYS use a date that is at least several days PRIOR to your true Due Date. This way there is plenty of margin for a couple day delay for what ever reason. If you do not need your puzzle for many weeks or several months, please use a date that is several weeks prior to your actual "Need by" date. Orders are usually sorted by order of due date. Please type in a specific date... not "ASAP", or "next week". Thank you,

(If sending more than one file, then please change the last number for each image.)

4cpictures-@-mgcpuzzles.comyifor up to 16MB images
Images larger than 8MB must be mailed in on a CD / DVD. You also have the option to Post the image(s) to your web site or FTP site, then e-mail me the web site URL for the image, or access information for your FTP site, and I will download the image(s).

IMPORTANT!: If you are Mailing me a CD. Use a SHARPIE MARKER to write your name / company name, Phone number and e-mail address ON THE ACTUAL CD. Additionally, Put your image on the CD in TWO formats. One in .JPG, and an additional file in either .TIFF, .PDF, . PSD, .AI,

that you are emailing me as your puzzle image?
(Only if you are e-mailing me your image)

  (Example: mike-smith-proposal-1.jpg -- or -- Google-team-puzzle-2.jpg )
IMPORTANT!!! - It is a HUGE help to me if you name your image file by either your personal name, or your company name. I can find it on my hard drive a LOT easier this way. Please avoid using file names that have no identification meaning, such as the file name that came off of your digital camera like... DSC0793.jpg or IMG_0047.jpg. It makes it time consuming for me to locate such image files on my hard drive when I am starting to work on your order. If you are sending me more than ONE file? Please use Comments Box at the end of order form to list the additional file names.

If you are asking friend to email me your digital image file, Please make sure that your name appears in the SUBJECT line of the email, and that their file name matches what you have typed here.

Images need to be a MINIMUM of 100 DPI Resolution at the FULL SIZE DIMENSION of the puzzle(s) you are ordering.

Ideal Resolution is 200dpi at the FULL Size of your puzzle(S).

Example: a 16" x 20" puzzle image should be 3,200 x 4,000 pixels (200 DPI) in size to achieve ideal printing quality, or at least a MINIMUM of 1,600 x 2000 pixels (100 DPI) in size. The Maximum resolution your images should be is 300 DPI. Any thing over 300 DPI is simply making no visible improvement to the image, however it will make the file size excessively large. Remember, your image file must be smaller than 16MB to e-mail it to me.

DPI = Dots Per Inch.

Figurals: Figure shaped puzzle pieces... When ordering "Traditional" and the "Nightmare" cut style puzzles, type your figural choices next to the numbers to the left. You get one complimentary figure shaped piece per each 50 pieces of puzzle ordered. Extra Figurals cost $7.50 each, up to a maximum ratio of 8 Figurals per 100 pieces of puzzle.

Typical Figurals that are ordered in puzzles cut in my "traditiional cutting style" are things like initials, numbers, event dates, and objects like cats, dogs, hearts, birds, tools, human figures etc... If you have a "unique" figural request, simply e-mail me, or FAX me an outline of that figural. Click Here for more details.

Words are treated as 1 figural per 3 letters of the word.
Pat = 1 Figural
James = 2 Figurals
Jennifer = 3 Figurals... etc.

NOTE: Large Style / Child Style (Guest Book Puzzles) cut is NOT very conducive to the addition of Figural pieces. If desired, "simple" Figurals can be included, however due to the size of these puzzle pieces, "intricate" Figurals, initials, words etc. should be avoided. Unless you an I make previous arrangements, I will not cut detailed figurals in oversized puzzles. This also applies to the Push-fit style.

*Difficulty of Puzzle

Your selection of puzzle difficulty
does NOT effect the puzzle's price

1 - Easy
2 - Medium - Normal level of tricks and challenge
3 - Difficult - Throw all of your tricks at me in abundance. I want a real challenge!
