How Jigsaw Puzzles
Wondering how jigsaw puzzles are cut? We can provide you with some interesting knowledge on that topic and provide some additional puzzle history. Puzzle pieces are mass-produced in a process known as die-cutting. A die-cutting press uses a sharp, flat metal ribbon to stamp out the individual pieces. Manufacturers are diligent about replacing their blades routinely to avoid missing or damaged pieces. However, the artist's drawings of the cuts are sent to rule-bend experts who bend razor-sharp steel rules into the shape of the puzzle pieces.
