What is Jiggy Puzzles?

Each design is the work of a female artist, and each of them receives a portion of the sales from their creation. The packaging of Jiggy Puzzles features a glass container that is both reusable and made in a carbon-neutral facility.
Who Owns Jiggy Puzzles?
Kaylin Marcotte has always been a go-getter, especially when it comes to unique ideas and start-up companies. And that is where her love of jigsaw puzzles began. In the midst of helping create and launch an online news outlet, Kaylin started a hobby of completing puzzles as a means of relaxation and meditation. After a time, she became bored with the more traditional puzzle designs and wanted something more unique that spoke to her.
Kaylin’s first step was to contact female artists in the New York area and ask them to contribute designs for her puzzles. This was her way of empowering women to create their own way in the world. After realizing just how popular her puzzles were, Kaylin quit her job with the start-up and launched her own company: Jiggy Puzzles.
Jiggy Puzzles is about more than just doing a puzzle. Kaylin created this company so that others could experience the relaxation and peace she felt every evening for years while doing puzzles. The unique and inspired works of art featured on each puzzle have helped a number of young women pursue their own passion for art.
