East Neuk Beach Crafts is the passion of Louise Stocker; her cottage industry was inspired by her cheerful seaside artwork that features magical birds and animals with whom she shares the Scottish coastline.
Louise was looking for a sustainable jigsaw manufacturer to work with who shares her ethos as she wanted to add a new product line to her retail offering for 2023. We had been recommended to her by her sister, Elizabeth, who had already had two trade jigsaws manufactured by us.
With an image already created, it was simply a case of making contact with us at our Devon jigsaw factory, to obtain pricing, lead times and understanding the process of manufacturing your own custom jigsaw.
Happy with all the information provided, Louise supplied her image via the file sharing platform ‘WeTransfer’ which allows large files like artwork and photos to be sent without email firewall issues. Once we had checked the image for suitability, we worked together to create a matching jigsaw box. Colour representation was really important to Louise, so we worked very closely to ensure that this met expectations. Several versions of the artwork were made until everything was perfect.
Once the final artwork was signed off, Louise’s custom jigsaw went into production.
During the production process, our sales team updated East Neuk Beach Crafts with progress photos and videos, which she could share on social media channels to her fans!
East Neuk Beach Craft’s first jigsaw, is a 1000 piece rectangle jigsaw in our space saving shoulder box. We listened to our clients who wanted smaller boxes, which minimise storage space and are ‘handbag friendly’ for shoppers! Our shoulder box measures only 19.5 x 22 x 5 cm and yet fits a 1000 piece jigsaw snugly.
These jigsaws have been well received by the client who sent us this testimonial:
“I just wanted to tell you how thrilled I am with the jigsaws. They’re wonderful. I just keep looking at all the pieces. It’s really strange seeing my own artwork like this!! I’m fascinated. Anyway, thank you so much for all your help and enthusiasm. Hopefully I’ll be back soon to order some more. Thanks again, Louise”.
These gorgeous custom jigsaws are available to purchase from East Neuk Beach Crafts here.
