Piecing together the city with a new range of Coventry jigsaws

Celebrate your civic pride by piecing together Coventry’s most-loved landmarks and attractions.

The team behind the much-loved Coventry pin badges, and more recently a Coventry-themed sticker album, are back again with a new product that will keep you entertained for hours.

Etch & Pin’s new range of jigsaws celebrate the city’s landmarks and attractions, with seven enticing designs to choose from.

Two of the designs are available online, one featuring Coventry’s skyline (pictured above) as seen from above the city’s cathedral, and the other a montage of Etch & Pin’s pin badge collection.

While the remaining five jigsaws, all available exclusively from their respective landmarks, feature the Thrust supersonic car on display at the Coventry Transport Museum; Coventry Cathedral; Coventry University; and the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum.

Every jigsaw is presented in a custom Etch & Pin branded box, with the jigsaw’s design printed across the front, and a difficulty level rating in the bottom left corner which denotes whether the jigsaw was designed for a novice or puzzle master.

The jigsaws were released just a few days ago (30 November), making them the perfect Christmas gift or game to tackle with the family over the festive season.

Aaron Ashmore, founder at Etch & Pin, believes that the jigsaws are a fun, creative way of showing the world how much history and culture Coventry has.

Aaron recently won the title ‘Role Model of the Year’ at the Midlands Business Awards for his work.

Aaron said: “The reception to the jigsaws has been amazing so far with lots of people telling us they are looking forward to tackling them over the Christmas period.

“Our jigsaws are made by Coventry people, for Coventry people.”

As with some of their previous products, Etch & Pin are partnering with a local charitable organisation to raise money to support their good work.

For the jigsaws, Etch & Pin are donating £1 for every sale to FRIDAYS Coventry, a community interest company hosting weekly events for 15-to-17-year-olds. The events give teenagers an enjoyable, safe space to spend their Friday evenings, in an effort to keep them away from antisocial behaviour and violent crime.

The jigsaws are available now for £12 each from etchandpin.co.uk and various locations across the city.
