Puzzle-lovers care about details. So, let me say a few things about quality.
1 These puzzle pieces are a distinctive slate blue. That’s how you can tell they are produced using Eska puzzle board imported from a special mill in Holland. This board is specifically formulated for puzzle production with gap-free adhesive layers to bond multiple sheets together to make a flat, rigid board. Unlike ordinary cardboard, puzzle board rarely delaminates. With puzzle board, you’ll also find less paper dust in your bag. I love this board and its distinctive color.
3 The kiss of steel. The puzzle pieces are die cut by dozens of carefully fashioned steel blades working under extreme pressure (550 tons). These specialized blades are custom made for Drescher by master craftsmen in Europe. Precision blades ensure that each cut is precise and clean. You won’t find burrs or nits. And the pressure of the blades also gently bevels the edges of the puzzle pieces to produce the delightful pillowy look that I find so attractive in a puzzle piece.
5 That’s not all. I’m also delighted with Drescher’s aqueous coatings, environmentally friendly adhesives, and box-building magic. But I risk sounding like a total bore if I go any deeper. The big message is this…at Drescher, I found a truly first-class team to make your puzzles. I’m so pleased.
There's just a week left for this Kickstarter project. Tell your puzzle-loving friends about Bad Neighborhood and please consider bumping your pledge level up a notch so you’ll have puzzle gifts to give for the holidays.
