How to Frame a Puzzle
After completing a puzzle, many people like to frame their hard work for display. To frame a jigsaw puzzle, there are many ways to do this. Take a look below at a few ways to frame your masterpiece.
Transport your puzzle to a local craft store: Before taking your jigsaw puzzle off the kitchen table, make sure that it is glued first. If you aren't sure how to glue your puzzle you can follow the instructions on our article here. After your masterpiece has successfully been glued, sandwich the puzzle between two pieces of cardboard or use many of our storage options that are available. Make sure it stays covered during transport to avoid any damages. From that point, the craft store may put the full puzzle into the frame for you with the last step hanging it on the wall for everyone to see.
Frame your jigsaw puzzle yourself: Before actually framing your masterpiece, we recommend having a dry-mounted (adhered to a thick piece of sturdy foam board) to preserve the puzzle seamlessly and ensure that no pieces fall out. Depending on the size, this could cost up to $15 at your local craft store, depending on the size. After creating a sturdy back for the puzzle, you can find the frame that fits the size of your masterpiece and display it for eyes to see. Now if you are trying to be budget-conscious, it is completely possible to glue your puzzle at home then find the frame that fits the size of the puzzle and continue the process like you would with a poster.
Ideally, puzzles should be covered with glass or a nice transparent plastic sheet inside of the frame because the cover will protect the puzzle from not only fingerprints but scratches as well. The cover will help secure the puzzle from collapsing or bowing from within the frame as well as keep the puzzle colors looking vibrant for years without any fading.
Finding the best puzzle frame could be hard, but we here at Puzzle Warehouse has made it easy for you as we sell several puzzle frames made specifically for 500 and 1000 piece puzzles. Once the puzzle is framed, it will look great and last a long time without any worry as well as showing your friends what you have accomplished!
