A Word on Jigsaw Puzzle Storage Devices / Rollups
Puzzle Mats & Rollups are designed as a solution to the problem of an unfinished puzzle monopolizing the dining room table for long periods of time. Just roll up the partially completed puzzle and store (or transport it) until you are ready to resume working on it. The difference in quality of the Rollups below is due to the thickness of the felt mat, the sturdiness of the tube (cardboard, plastic or inflatable), and the fasteners whether they are rubber bands, elastic or canvas straps.

We believe there are two things to keep in mind concerning Rollups. First, they are not a perfect solution. After unrolling a stored puzzle, you may notice some shifting has occurred requiring a degree of reattachment. How much reassembly will depend on how tight you were able to roll the mat while preparing for storage. It interesting to note that the same is true for very expensive Puzzle Caddies ($60-$100) we tested, which needed even more reworking than much less expensive rollups. (We have had good success with the new "Puzzle Store' by Ravensburger below). Second, rollups may not be ideal for jigsaw puzzles with very large pieces, since there would be the possibility of those pieces curling when stored.

FINALLY, why do we prefer the inflatable Stow & Go (Ravensburger)? Using an inflatable instead of a cardboard tube allows you to more firmly compress (roll) the puzzle pieces against the FELT, giving a tighter wrap. This means a bit less reworking when you are ready to continue puzzling.

Due to its size and shape, this item ships as a separate package.*

Note: Due to inconsistent packaging (about 1/2 of these rollups have the felt crunched at the ends; easily usable but poor shrink wrapping) AND the fact that this item must be shipped separately due to the long tube (other manufacturers are offering more compact designs), we are discontinuing this item.

The Puzzle Store 2*
A large table is always useful for puzzling, but what happens if you want to set the table for dinner or use it for something else? How do you keep your semi-completed puzzle safe and sound? PUZZLE STORE 2 solves this problem in a neat and easy way that also helps you to sort and store all those little pieces.

PUZZLE STORE 2 is made from molded plastic covered with a high quality linen-finish full color print. The puzzle assembly board measures 28" x 20" and is made from thick and sturdy cardboard, laminated with high-quality paper.
It is suitable for most of the following puzzles:

  • Standard 1000 Pieces

  • Standard 500s

  • 500 Large Format w/Oversized pieces

  • 380-400 piece Family Puzzles

  • 300-350 Large Format w/Oversized pieces
    Note that Rollup Puzzle Mats don't really work well with Large Format Puzzle. If you roll up Large Pieces, they will tend to curl during storage. This Puzzle Store 2 solves that problem.

The closed size is 30" x 22" x 1.2" inches. Open, the unit measures 44" x 30". It has 2 black webbing handles and weighs nearly 7lbs (without a puzzle inside). The outer surface has a wipe clean finish to help you keep it looking smart.

Using PUZZLE STORE 2 is simple. It works a little like a large CD case open up the 2 halves and start to sort your puzzle pieces into the 5 integral sorting trays. Sort by color, or perhaps sort out the edge pieces first. Then just start to assemble your puzzle on the puzzle assembly board. When you are finished for the day, place the assembly board on top of the sorting trays and snap the lid shut to keep everything safe and secure until the next time. The PUZZLE STORE 2 has carry handles so you can either store it upright, or flat (perhaps under a sofa or chair.) Generally, it seemed to us that there is less shifting, and therefore less need to straighten things out when you start up again if you store it flat.

* The PUZZLE STORE 2 is the 2013 version of the original Puzzle Store of 2012

The Puzzle Store 2 (2013)(by Ravensburger)
The PUZZLE STORE 2 caddy ships in a special box. We can fit at most 1 or 2 puzzles in the same box. If you order more than 2, a 2nd box will be used and therefore an additional shipping charge. We will call or email you with that amount, but frankly, it would be easiest to order no more than 1 or 2 puzzles with the Puzzle Store 2.
The Puzzle Store 2 is the only item we sell that does not qualify for the $100 FREE Shipping deal.

A word on shipping: No box we know of adequately protects this item in shipping. We've found it necessary to tape a sleeve on each of the  4 sides to add an extra level of padding to the special sized box we use. It may not be pretty (and it adds to the shipping weight), but it's an improvement on how the factory sends them to us. There is no free shipping on this item.
If you choose PRIORITY MAIL, there will be a $3 surcharge added (not shown at checkout), because the Postal Service charges extra for this OVERSIZED PARCEL.
