THE ART & FABLE STORY
Our work began even before our company was fully realized, aiming to expand the audience of hard-working artists and to bring attention to the beautiful illustrations and stories of forgotten fables. Our approach towards accomplishing this goal, was to create premium quality jigsaw puzzles while simultaneously contributing to charity.
Our licensed artists are full of passion and imagination, providing diverse and contemporary images for our puzzles. From our unique selection, you can choose from puzzles that are beautiful, deeply meaningful, and just plain fun! We are grateful for our partnership with these artists, allowing us to bring fine art into your home, onto your table, and into your hands!
The team at Art & Fable hopes you will enjoy these painted images and illustrated storybook pages transformed into deluxe puzzles. The art in combination with our distinctive Velvet-Touch surface is the cornerstone of our mission: to support charities and artists while providing you with a lovely puzzle experience!
So, whether you puzzle with family
and friends or prefer inventive solitude,
we hope you enjoy your puzzling time with Art & Fable Puzzles!
Meet The Team
CEO & Founder
Marcia Durgin is the heart of Art & Fable. Durgin was already a successful business owner, the co-founder of Crossroads Bake Shop with her husband, when she started her second family business, this time bringing on her two daughters. As an experienced lover of puzzles, Durgin began dreaming about a puzzle that offered high quality art in addition to being environmentally and socially responsible. Within a year, Durgin worked hard to make her perfect puzzle a reality - contracting local living artists, forming partnerships with charities, and searching for the best manufacturers to help in sharing her dream.

WE SUPPORT CHARITIES
Socially conscious giving is highly appreciated, so you can
be sure your gift will be too.
Paper Puzzles are Earth Friendly
We love that our jigsaw puzzles tread lightly on the earth.
We purposely selected smaller box sizes which have a reduced carbon footprint compared to standard
puzzle boxes. Much less energy and material is needed to manufacture and ship our puzzles.
The Art & Fable puzzle and box are made from 100% recycled paper board. The puzzle, box and insert all can be recycled, but check first with
your trash hauler for specifics on how to recycle paper with lamination.
We also provide a resealable bag in every box so you can keep your puzzle for years to come and re-experience the joy of an Art & Fable jigsaw puzzle!
In many cases we select
an organization based on
an artists recommendation!
We also have a special place in our hearts
for Autism Awareness, and through our
donations we will continue to support
organizations that enhance the lives of
children and adults living on the spectrum.
In addition to making great puzzles and supporting great artists, it is our mission to give back with every puzzle we sell. Through your puzzle purchase, you are supporting the charitable work of the following organizations.
The Ronald McDonald House of Knoxville, TN

The Art & Fable Bonus Items
With every Art & Fable puzzle box,
we include 3 awesome bonus items.
HIGH QUALITY PRINT
Here at A&F, we are all about the art. Before we had even decided on the name of our company, we knew that no matter what, a beautiful print would come with every puzzle. Not only does it serve as another image to refer to when putting together your puzzle, but when you've completed your project you can frame the print and enjoy the art long after you've finished!
BOX TOP STAND
Is there anything more annoying than a puzzle box top that's constantly falling over while you're trying to put together your puzzle? We've had pieces knocked to the ground never to be seen again, glasses of wine spilled all over the table... Needless to say, we thought up a solution! Our box top stand is uniquely designed to eliminate topsy turvy accidents so you can puzzle in peace.
There comes a point when you need your dining room table back... it's time to pack up your puzzle! We provide a resealable bag in each box, so when you want to revisit that jigsaw heaven, everything is where you need it to be!
"From the cover stand,
the velvet feel, and no glare pieces to the framable art inside...
All I can say is WOW!"
