Our Story

Kris's artistic puzzle business in Atlanta, GA is rapidly growing!Dope Pieces focuses on Mural and Fine Art pieces. We create puzzles using beautiful images of Black and Brown people and culturally positive themes from well established Artists. Our puzzles have a strong content base but are beautiful enough to frame and hang. They are more than just puzzles, they are art.Our customers are puzzlers of color that have gone too long without having access to images that are reflective of them. They are looking for diversity in their puzzle selections. They want to feel represented in their hobby of choice and have options that include images that showcase people and content that speak to them culturally, historically, and visually.My customer pool is as diverse as our puzzle. They include not just those seeking representation but those who appreciate art, individuals that want to support businesses owned by people of color and women, and those that are looking for opportunities to learn more about other people and their culture. Store owners, galleries, museums, and boutiques, shop with Dope Pieces to provide their customers diverse options. Parents and teachers purchase our puzzles for images that foster an appreciation for diversity and self-love, and allow for learning opportunities through a multi beneficial activity.I have been a long time puzzler and understand what makes an excellent product. I have studied my industry and developed relationships with my customers over the years and established relationships in various areas of the industry from other puzzle companies, manufacturers and printing companies, to distributors, retail outlets and a multitude of organizations. I am an expert in my field and have mentored new companies through their startup phase and consult newly established companies.
Our Ambition

Having a product is key for the growth of our company as we scale. Storage, packaging, shipping, fulfillment, and advertising are the bulk of our budget. With these funds, I will have the supplies and support needed to move my company to the next level. I will have all of the tools needed without having to wait for inventory or stress about having what I need. The opportunities exist for me. People want the puzzles but I need to have them to sell.
