I thought it might be a good idea to create a list of jigsaw puzzle brands, and/or companies, for quick reference, and also just to provide that information to anyone who might want it. Upon researching, I found that many of the lists I came across were incomplete. So, I compiled my own lists from various Internet sources and am providing them here for all who are interested.
Brand or Company:
For starters, be aware that there is a difference between a “brand” and a “company” or “business”. The way I understand it, a company/business produces or sells the product or service. Said company/business may actually produce or sell a variety of different brands. So, the brand is actually just an image of how a product or service is portrayed to the consumer.
With this in mind, it seems to me that there are some brands of jigsaw puzzles that are produced by certain companies, which means it’s harder to find any information on that particular base of operations. I wanted to list the actual companies, and also provide some information about them, but I am aware that there are many popular brands as well. So I ended up with more than just one list, as you will see below.
Please Note: I am aware that my lists are probably not complete, but they do contain all of the brands/companies that I could find with a good deal of searching. If you know of other jigsaw puzzle brands or companies that should be included here, please let me know in the comments below and I will gladly update my lists as needed.
***Please be sure to include the URL, if applicable, so I can check them out and include their information as well.
Some Are Both:
You may notice a few on my lists that are labeled as both a “brand” and a “company”. I think Disney is a perfect example of that because they ARE a company, and they ARE also a brand. I only found a few like that, so if you know of others that applies to, please just let me know in a comment below.
My List of Brands:
|Disney||Brand and Company|
|George & Jimmy||Brand|
|Great American Puzzle Factory||Brand|
|Trefl||Brand and Company|

|BanDai or BanDao|
|Knick Knack Gifts|
I hope my lists are helpful to anyone looking for certain jigsaw brands or companies. I’ll close with my wish for you:
