While many businesses are struggling to keep their doors open during the covid-19 pandemic, sellers of board games and puzzles in stores and online, are seeing a big boost in business this year as consumers spend more time at home.

Jigsaw puzzles


The puzzle market has been on an upward trend for a couple of years and trend watchers have signaled the increasing popularity for some time. Nevertheless, Covid-19 has reinforced this trend as more people stay at home and have started to enjoy making puzzles again.

Growth of global puzzle sales has driven a significant rise in demand for Solidus’ Puzzleline board during the Covid-19 pandemic. Puzzleline is produced in blue or greyboard to specific standards, ensuring it has the necessary physical properties including durability, which are essential requirements for puzzle manufacturing. Puzzleline is well known and used by puzzle manufacturers for its high quality, including flatness, smoothness, stiffness and its suitability for high run speeds in production processes. It can also be easily and precisely cut, guaranteeing a perfect fit for every piece.

Solidus solid board is made from 100% recovered paper, which contains valuable natural fibers that can be reused up to seven times in the production of solid board, making it a truly sustainable product.

As an experienced supplier to this specialist market, Solidus is widely recognised as a trusted and reliable partner to puzzle manufacturers globally.
