About

JIGGY is a new female-founded, direct-to-consumer puzzle company that's reinventing the humble jigsaw puzzle. Featuring art by emerging female artists (who receive a % of every sale), sustainable and elevated packaging, and specially formulated puzzle glue, JIGGY puzzles are art - in pieces. 

Founding Story

Founder Kaylin Marcotte was working 24/7 as theSkimm’s first employee when she started doing jigsaw puzzles as her nightly meditation. She fell in love with them and was doing a puzzle every week, but found the designs to be outdated and uninspiring. Conceived as a way to modernize and elevate the classic jigsaw puzzle, JIGGY features art by emerging female artists around the world, sustainable packaging, and specially formulated puzzle glue to preserve your masterpiece for framing (all completed puzzles fit standard framing sizes).

JIGGY has been growing fast, and Kaylin has since been featured on a 2021 episode of Shark Tank, and was offered a partnership with Mark Cuban!
