Up and Coming Changes To The Scriptalizer API

In order to ensure the smooth running of our Scriptalizer API server we intend to implement the following limits from 12th April 2021: –

– A LIMIT OF 48KB PER REQUEST ON THE LICENSED API

– A DAILY LIMIT OF 10,000 REQUESTS PER DAY ON THE LICENSED API

From April 12th we will be making the Scriptalizer API code available for self-hosting, with none of the above limits. The code will require a Windows hosting environment. From this date the existing Quantum Enterprises hosted licenced API will increase in price to £99.95 (for all new users), whilst the new self-hosted API will be £49.95 per year.

Please contact us if you think that this affects you.

The Jigsaw Doctor – Pack Your Surrounding Pieces Well!

After we’ve received some damaged/missing surrounding jigsaw pieces in the mail this week we have updated our packaging recommendations on the Jigsaw Doctor website to be more specific about the best way to pack them.

We recommend you place the assembled pieces on a sheet of stiff cardboard then wrap this with cling film (best method) or similar plastic sheet, or paper. Then apply another piece of stiff cardboard on top of the pieces and tape the two pieces of card together.
Use a good quality envelope to send the packaged pieces.

This has been a ‘one in several thousand’ incident, but we want to ensure your surrounding pieces reach us safely, so by following these recommendations there’s a great chance they’ll all arrive intact.

The fonts, numbered PremiumUltra53 to PremiumUltra67, represent a wide range of handwriting styles and sizes, so there’s sure to be something that you’ll find useful.

In addition to adding the new fonts we have now changed to larger font preview images on our website to make it easier to find a font suitable for your requirements. We’ve also separated the fonts into 10 per page to maintain download speed.

The page navigation bar makes it easy to move around the nearly 70 fonts that we have available.

“I was very impressed with the Puzzle Doctor. A very professional operation.”

During the COVID-19 lockdown we’re getting really getting busy as people dig out long-forgotten jigsaws from cupboards and attics and find they have missing pieces.

We’ve recently received more feedback from customer’s who’ve finally been able to see their loved jigsaws completed again.

Here are some recent comments:-

J.S. (UK) wrote the following about their completed ‘Construction Lunchtime 1932’ by Ravensburger.

A very professional operation. I spent 3 months completing a very challenging limited edition black and white puzzle of New York City only to discover that 2 pieces were missing. This was frustrating as I had spent some time searching for this puzzle with a view to having it framed The original manufacturer were unable to replace the two pieces but to be fair to them did provide a refund. Jigsaw doctor were able to rectify the missing pieces to a high standard. I have yet to find a single person and there have been 10 so far who can identify the 2 replacement pieces. It will now be framed as per my original intent . Thank you jigsaw doctor .

And here’s the photo they sent:-

Kevin Tipping (UK) wrote about his repaired ‘The Beatles Illustrated Lyrics’ by Philmar:-

When the jigsaw piece arrived this morning I was gobsmacked to see what a fantastic replacement you have made. The fitting is spot on, also the colors; you cannot tell looking at the jigsaw which is the one you replaced for us; well done everyone for your help; 10 out of 10 many thanks again.
P.S This jigsaw is about 50 years old

Here’s the photo he sent us:-

A.S.P. (UK) wrote the following about their restored ‘Paris Balcony’ by Ravensburger:-

Instructions on how to send puzzle pieces and what information was needed was clearly outlined. I was notified promptly when the puzzle pieces arrived and they were returned to me in a timely fashion. The fit is perfect and the image perfectly in keeping with the puzzle. I’m excited to be able to enjoy this puzzle knowing it will actually be complete now!

Here’s a photo of a vintage 19020’s wooden jigsaw puzzle from C.B.:-

He wrote:-

This is the third time I have used your services to replace pieces in old wooden jigsaws. Each time I am amazed at the quality of the replacements and how difficult it is to spot them in the completed jigsaw.
Thank you

“Masterful workmanship. Very, very impressive result.”

The Jigsaw (Puzzle) Doctor makes replacement jigsaw puzzle pieces for those which have gone missing or have been damaged.

We’ve recently had some more feedback from satisfied customers.

G.K. (USA) wrote the following about his ‘Seacoast Lane’ Victory wooden jigsaw puzzle:-

Masterful workmanship. Very, very impressive result.

When Isabell Crawford (UK) received the replacement piece for her ‘Haynes Anatomy of a Spitfire’ by Half Moon Bay’ she took a photo and wrote:-

Thank you so much, my jigsaw is now finished. Great job Jigsaw Doctors.

Pat Walsh (USA) wrote the following after receiving the replacement pieces for his Vintage Car jigsaw by Trefl:-

Wow! Much better than I’d even hoped for. Your website information doesn’t do you justice – these were indistinguishable from the surrounding pieces. Really pleased with how it turned out.

And finally, John Messeter (UK) wrote

…I received the puzzle pieces and I am very happy with the result. Thank you very much.
