ABOUT PUZZLE CLUB
Piece and quiet, delivered monthly to your doorstep.
In our fast-paced world, we rarely take the time to slow down, unplug, and appreciate the little things. That's why we're here--to remind you that it's okay to take a breather every now and then. And to provide a fun and engaging way to do it.
Puzzles offer an escape and a challenge, simultaneously. Studies show that the activity can improve short term memory, strengthen problem solving skills, and act as a great tool for meditation and stress relief. Puzzling also fuels creativity and allows you to build a work of art with your own two hands.
We want this to be a gift that brightens your day (or month), we want you to pass the joy along, and we want you to make things and memories that last.
We are passionate about delivering a beautifully designed product that is high quality, meaningful, and that truly creates joy.
Puzzle Club is owned and operated by Sock Club, based in Austin, Texas. Co-founders Noah Lee and Dane Jensen started Sock Club in 2012 as a way to share their love of socks with the world. As the first monthly sock subscription on the market, they started by sourcing a new cool sock from a different label each month.
By 2014, Sock Club was designing each monthly design in-house, and manufacturing them in our mills in North Carolina. Our subscription had grown from a few loyal fans to a large subscriber base that we like to call the Sock Club Family.
Sock Club expanded our subscription to include custom branded socks in 2016. This allowed us to expand our design team and supply chain and get really good at sourcing and manufacturing high quality items in the USA with a quick turnaround. Sock Club has been featured in The New York Times, Inc. Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, Buzzfeed, and The Huffington Post.
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, we, like the rest of the world, reflected on the things that are important to us. The answer that we came up with is delivering a truly unique experience to our Sock Club Family, whether that is a custom sock or a puzzle subscription.
We also, as a team, shared the things that we had gained a new perspective on. The main takeaway was that the simple things had a renewed importance. We want to get back to basics.
Several members of the team had started doing puzzles as a way to pass the time, and to connect with family away from the television or their phones.
We sent out a brief survey to our Sock Club Family and were overwhelmed by the amount of calls, texts, and emails we received. We had found a new way to create joy for our friends, family, and customers, which is all we ever aim to do.
