First of all, you must decide which format of photos you will use?
Dimensioning. The total volume determines the dimensions of individual parts, protrusions and photographs.
Our puzzle has turned out such sizes:
• General: 60 * 88
• Individual puzzles: 20 * 22
• Protrusion: no higher than 3 cm.
• Photo: 10 * 15.
Only exact observance of the specified parameters will give us a beautiful and qualitative drawing.
2 internal protrusions

Do not make our mistakes:
• We advise you not to make 2 internal protrusions facing each other - in this position, the photos will not fit on the platform a bit.

Phased work planning:
Step 1. Selecting a picture. It is better to choose pictures consisting of separate compositions: they are easier perceived and look more beautiful if they are supplemented with photo inserts. Our choice is a composite composition, reflecting the change of seasons. Motives and parts of the picture we were looking for on the Internet.
