When the pandemic locked people inside, Buffalo Games saw an unprecedented spike in demand for its puzzles. But just as demand was taking off, the company's Buffalo, NY factory was shut down under New York State COVID-19 mandate. As the largest manufacturer of puzzles in North America, the company had to get creative. First, Buffalo Games sourced from overseas and then ramped up manufacturing stateside when the factory was able to reopen in May. Since May, the company has doubled production, now making 2 million puzzles a month. Business Insider visits the factory to see how Buffalo Games did it.

  • One thing that might make a puzzle fantastic gift would be to custom print someone's photograph onto a blank since cutting is more a matter of sizing it to the board and it's already done on canvas that you can order online. Imagine the surprise they'd have beginning a puzzle that seemed oddly familiar as it began to show the car they once owned or a beloved pet from long ago looking back at them and it would be especially good for seniors since it would trigger memories as it was built. Indeed if they could charge 15/25$ per puzzle depending on size it would be a best seller since most that you buy are of places/art that you'll likely never see. One alternative would be to send a printable blank that you could take take to a local printer or do it at home since it would be even more flexible/fun to create it yourself so that Holiday photo or of family outing they treasure would be a unique Momento as much as the memory it recalled....
