National Puzzle Day: Our New Releases for 2021
Posted on

A new year means new puzzles and we are absolutely delighted to announce that we had some new arrivals to celebrate National Puzzle Day, on January 29th. Each year, National Puzzle Day recognises how important it is to exercise the brain, and puzzling is perfect for just that. Check out our blog post here for some of the mental health benefits puzzles can provide!

National Puzzle Day isn’t just for jigsaws, but for crosswords, Sudoku, brain teasers and word searches. Whatever your pick, we hope you love our fresh designs for 2021! 
 
This blog post highlights the new releases that are launching between now and March. Keep an eye on our social media for launch dates.

As with all Gibsons jigsaws, we use 100% recycled puzzle board, FSC paper and work with the best artists from all around the world. The beautifully illustrated pieces are designed to fit perfectly together; in fact, we use the thickest puzzle board on the market.

We’ve made some positive changes to our processes, so you can be sure you’re getting the same great puzzles and know that they are kinder to the environment.  Not only does the box have a fresh new look, but we’ve used biodegradable clear labels to secure the lid instead of shrink wrap to reduce our plastic waste. There is a gloss coating on the box for extra protection and the puzzle pieces are stored in a plastic bag that can be recycled by most councils. Because the box is slightly smaller than our previous designs, we need less room to transport our products which reduces our carbon footprint and means you can store your puzzles more easily. We have also popped an artwork poster inside for you to reference whilst you piece together your lovely jigsaw puzzle.  

Happy puzzling!
