A Trip Down Memory Lane
In November 2019, I hit "launch"
on jiggypuzzles.com and started
shipping orders from my NYC
apartment living room
During our first holiday season, we were
featured on the TODAY Show
... and moved out of my apt into
a warehouse soon after that!
At the beginning of the pandemic, we wanted
to give artists a way to continue producing art,
and where better directly than on a puzzle!
We launched JIGGY Originals - hand painted,
one-of-a-kind puzzles supporting artists and
Covid relief funds
We then launched our second collection
called Staycation. We wanted to bring
some joy to a very different summer
Gwyneth Paltrow shared her pandemic
at-home wellness routine and there was
JIGGY! Her and her kids enjoyed
games and puzzles together
We made puzzles worth framing,
and wanted to help with that final piece,
the framing! JIGGY frame pairings
transform your puzzle into wall-ready art
We partnered with Sophia Bush's
organization, I am a Voter, and three
incredible artists on a special edition
collection of puzzles to support voter
registration for the 2020 election
During Breast Cancer Awareness month,
we ran a special campaign with this
best-seller and donated a portion
of proceeds to research foundations
First retail partner! We launched our first
collaboration with Anthropologie,
seven exclusive designs that were
featured and sold in all Anthro stores
across the country and online
Our first holiday collection - and a
double one with 12 designs!
launched to celebrate our favorite
time of year and give the perfect gift
JIGGY turned one -
and what a year it was!
Ellen DeGeneres selected JIGGY for
her curated Kind Box and we were
featured on the show! As she put it,
our puzzles are "perfect when you
want to get JIGGY with it."
JIGGY Monthly Puzzle Club launches!
Puzzle lovers can now take their ritual to the
next level with a 500pc puzzle every month
We made an appearance on
Shark Tank and even made a
deal with Mark Cuban!
We then launched our next
collection, Wanderlust. We wanted to
bring all the summer feels into
one beautiful collection
JIGGY x Anthropologie
launched for a second time
with 3 new summery puzzles
We ran our first Puzzle Art Contest
where female and non-binary artists
around the world were able to submit their
art for our Spring '22 Collection
Over 500 artists submitted and over
65,000 community votes!
We launched our first ever kids puzzle
JIGGY Junior, with Bloomingdales!
Our limited edition design to celebrate the
holidays with this iconic retailer was made in
kids and adult sizes and sold in-store
We partnered with country pop artist
Kacey Musgraves to celebrate her new
album release with 2 custom puzzles!
We hosted our first holiday popup
at the Union Square Market in NYC
(we'll be there again this year!)
and released a seasonal collection
of new holiday designs
We made a custom puzzle for
Reese Witherspoon's Book Club
that was sold at their popup in LA
Immersive Van Gogh x JIGGY was
a dream come true! We placed our
female artist in the exhibit to paint live,
works inspired by Van Gogh and turned
4 into puzzles sold at the gift shop
JIGGY Junior is born!
We released our first collection of
curated art 100pc puzzles made for
small hands and curious minds
Our founder Kaylin is named to
Inc Magazine's Female Founder
100 List, recognizing the "most
dynamic women in business"
Introducing JIGGY Studio!
Our curated marketplace launched to
bring hundreds more puzzle designs
to life and work with dozens more artists
Such an exciting moment
for JIGGY to be chosen at one of
Oprah's Favorite Things!
Our new holiday collection
of adult and Junior puzzles is
fresh off the sleigh!
Cheers to 3 years!
There's a lot more in store and
we can't wait to share this journey
with you. Happy puzzling!
We're 3! This bday feels like a big one, and not just because 3 is my favorite number :). When I was considering quitting my job to take the plunge as a solo, self-funding founder, I started reading everything I could about launching a company and came across a report that stated 90% of startups would fail in the first 3 years. I remember taking a deep breath and deciding to bet on myself, and have a goal of getting to that milestone.
So as we take a moment to celebrate 3 years of gettin' JIGGY, I want to say a HUGE thank you to YOU, our puzzlers and artists, for inspiring me to continue pushing forward and for being a part of this wild ride!
In the last 12 months, we've released our frame pairings, JIGGY Junior kids line, ran an art voting contest and released the winners, grew our team, launched JIGGY Studios marketplace, made custom puzzles for incredible partners like Kacey Musgraves and Bloomingdale's, sold into Nordstrom and Macy's, been named to Inc Magazine's Female Founder 100 list and made Oprah's Favorite Things! None of this would have been possible without the loyalty and support of our community - thank you thank you thank you, we feel so lucky to be a small part of your lives.
Check out our trip down memory lane to celebrate how far we've come and what's still ahead! Cheers to many more years of gettin' JIGGY,
