Ringo Starr, drummer from the Beatles, tweeted on March 8th, 2016:

The Beatles formed their musical journey in the early 1960’s with John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr and they began their recording career with George Martin, a producer at EMI Records who had never worked with a rock band.  He turned around and produced one of the most legendary Rock ‘n’ Roll bands in history.

With the Beatles. 1963 EMI Records

With albums such as With the Beatles, Rubber Soul, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band among many others, the Fab Four made their way onto home stereos all over the world and their innovative music and moving lyrics are well remembered today, 50 years later.

Sir George Martin, CBE, was born January 3rd, 1926, and worked as a producer for EMI Records and mostly worked with classical music.  He even attended the Guildhall School of Music and Drama studying piano and oboe.  When he signed the Beatles to a record contract with EMI in 1962, it was a step into a new direction for him–a step that would change his life forever.

Often referred to as “The Fifth Beatle” Martin won multiple Grammy awards and won an Academy Award for “Best Score” with “A Hard Day’s Night”.

Customized Jigsaw Puzzle Production

Hand Cut Custom Jigsaw Puzzle Pieces

How to make custom jigsaw puzzles has changed a lot over the years. Hundreds of years ago, they were all made with hand tools. Nowadays, machines handle most of the difficult work. Jobs like printing high quality images, gluing images the the boards, cutting them with high precision and even packaging.

But the most luxurious jigsaw puzzles are still made by hand.  The images are either glued to the puzzle, or they are hand painted. The next step is cutting the puzzle. This can be done a few different ways such as by using a band saw, rotary tool or dremel tools. Once the pieces are cut, touch ups are made to ensure a high quality finished image.

Are you familiar with the jigsaw puzzle manufacturer Ravensburger? They’re one of the highest quality jigsaw puzzles around and for good reason. Ravensburger goes above and beyond the expectations of the average puzzler with beautiful landscapes, dinosaurs, pirates, princesses, fairies, unicorns, construction sites, underwater scenes, as well as colorful art of well-loved characters & themes like Disney and Thomas the Tank Engine just to name a few.

Disney Monsters Inc University

The company was founded by Otto Robert Maier in Ravensburg, a town in Upper Swabia in southern Germany. He began publishing in 1883 with his first author contract. He started publishing instruction folders for craftsmen and architects, which gave him a steady income. His first board game appeared in 1884, named “Journey around the world”.

At the turn of the 20th century, his product line broadened to include picture books, children’s activity books, Art Instruction manuals, non-fiction books, and reference books as well as children’s games, Happy Families and activity kits. In 1900, the Ravensburger blue triangle trademark was registered with the Imperial Patent office. As of 1912, many board and activity games had an export version that was distributed to Western Europe, the countries of the Danube Monarchy as well as Russia.

Before the First World War, Ravensburger had around 800 products. The publishing house was damaged during the Second World War and continued to produce games in the years of the reconstruction. The company focused on children’s games and books and specialized books for art, architecture and hobbies, and from 1962 grew strongly. The company started to produce jigsaw puzzle games in 1964, and in the same year opened subsidiaries in Austria, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.  In 1977 the company split into a book publishing arm and a game publishing arm.

In September 2010, Ravensburger broke Educa’s record for the world’s largest jigsaw puzzle of 24,000 pieces. Ravensburger’s new puzzle design by late pop artist Keith Haring titled, ‘Keith Haring: Double Retrospect’ breaks the Guinness Book of World Records measuring 17′ × 6′ built from 32,256 pieces and comes with its own dolly cart for toting. Another giant made by Ravensburger is New York City, a 32,000+ piece jigsaw puzzle that’s no easy challenge.
