Jacek Yerka: An Artist of Perspective

Jacek Yerka is a Polish artist that was born in 1952. He attended the local Fine Arts Academy in Torun, the town he grew up in. Stubbornly resisting his professors insistence to conform to the simpler, less-detailed contemporary art styles, Yerka preferred and painted in the classic, meticulous Flemish style. For him, his teachers attempt to move him away from his fascination with realism was “an attempt to stifle [his] own creative style.” He refused to fall in line; his teachers relented, recognizing his talent.

Yerka’s art often features images from his childhood, especially the surroundings of his 1950’s Polish home and his grandmother’s kitchen. He also enjoys images of odd little beasts and whimsical and fantastic landscapes.

Our Yerka puzzles feature the bright colors of his art, as well as his interesting take on perspective, balance, and contrast.

Discount Jigsaw Puzzles – Why You Should Shop for Scratch and Dent Puzzles

It can be hard to pick out the perfect jigsaw puzzle. Since you are probably going to spend a lot of time working your puzzle – from clearing off a table in your kitchen or hobby room to putting that last piece in just the right spot to finish your masterpiece – you’ll want to make sure you pick just the right one. With so many choice to make, like the number of pieces, the puzzle image, the type of puzzle (ribbon cut or random cut pieces, panoramic or square, glow in the dark or 3D) and the brand, the last thing you should have to worry about is this: Am I paying too much for my puzzle? Cheap jigsaws are easy to find, but there is always quality to worry about. When you buy a puzzle, it should be something you want to keep forever, not just throw away when you’re finished! That’s why we have our Scratch and Dent section. Here, you can find a cheap puzzle that is still good as new on the inside – it might just have a ding on the outside of the box. These puzzles are from the same high-quality puzzles brands like Ravensburger, Springbok and Buffalo Games – but we sell them for less than retail prices. Let us explain.

Since we are a reseller, we get shipments every day from over 80 different brands. With hundreds of boxes coming off of trucks and into our warehouse, there are bound to be some damaged items. When we sell you a puzzle at full price – we always make sure it is only in perfect condition. If there is damage to the box at all, we mark it Scratch and Dent and give you a discount. In these cases, the bag of puzzles pieces inside is still intact and in perfect condition. Even though these puzzles are discounted, you won’t find missing pieces or damage to the actual jigsaw puzzle you are putting together. Take a look at the pictures below and you’ll see the best-case and worst-case scenarios for these discounted jigsaw puzzle boxes.

So, why not save a few extra bucks and buy the same high-quality puzzle for less? We have puzzles for adults and jigsaws for kids in this section, from 24 pieces up to some our largest puzzles like 3000 piece jigsaws. And since we get so many shipments every week, you’ll see new additions to this cheap puzzle selection almost every day.

Are you wondering what must be wrong with these cheap jigsaw puzzles? Let me give you an example to show you the puzzles themselves are in perfect condition!

This is an example of what the most minimal damage might be for a scratch and dent. Even if the box just has a slight tare like this, we will take a few dollars off the the full retail price and pass the savings onto you.

You'll see, the puzzle inside is just like new - still sealed in the bag with no loose pieces or any other damage. Just like new!

This is one of the worst types of Scratch and Dent Puzzles you will see - where the corner of the box might have been slightly crushed by a forklift of by other boxes.

Again, you'll find that the puzzle inside is just as good as new - with the pieces intact and the puzzle image still perfectly visible on the box!

So, next time you’re having trouble deciding if you should go for the expensive puzzle brands so that you can get the best quality jigsaw puzzle for your next project, try one of our great Scratch and Dent puzzles and save, without giving up on quality!

New Christmas Room!

Last month, we celebrated our 1st anniversary being open to the public, and boy has it been a ride! A year later, we’re facing our second holiday season and are very excited to offer you – our valued customers – more than 12,000 puzzles and games to choose from in our store here in St. Louis and online at PuzzleWarehouse.com.
And Something New: we now have an entire Christmas room full of more than 300 holiday-themed jigsaw puzzles from 10 to 1500 pieces. Here are a few of our favorites.

1. The Twelve Days of Christmas

The Celtic Collection of puzzles contains original and vivid artwork created by Dublin born artist Rachel Arbuckle. This is a stunning interpretation of the classic Christmas song. Purrfect Puzzles are made in The Netherlands to the highest quality, using recycled materials, in a compact ‘Eco Box’. The well-fitting pieces are varied, glare-free, durable and thicker than usual pieces.

2. Christmas Puzzleballs

These 3D puzzles by Ravensburger are a hit every holiday season! Turn this Christmas into a life-long memory by building your very own Puzzleball ornaments! Each Puzzleball has 60 interlocking pieces that come together to form a holiday scene ornament that can be hung on the tree with included nylon string. We have several non-Christmas theme puzzle balls for year-round puzzling fun, too.

3. Puzzles to Remember – Poinsettia & Pine Cones

A holiday favorite, the poinsettia, comes to life as you put together this vivid jigsaw puzzle. The Puzzles to Remember series by Springbok is a fun way to enjoy puzzling while minimizing the time it takes to piece together. These puzzles are the same finished size as standard 500-piece puzzles, but contain only 12 or 36 large pieces, making it much easier to finish. There are more than 10 puzzles in this series.

4. Pintoo’s plastic puzzles

As the only carrier in the USA of these unique puzzles, Puzzle Warehouse is excited to bring you a collection of puzzles that feature long-lasting, interlocking plastic pieces. These puzzles do not require glue after assembled (they can be hung right up) and offer greater flexibility and presentability than traditional jigsaw puzzles. Pintoo offers more than 120 images in puzzles ranging from 40 to 1000 pieces, 3D, and Miniatures!
