About Us

Who We Are

True South was founded by Susan Taylor in Nashville, Tennessee in 2013. With True South, Susan combined her love of jigsaw puzzles, her Southern roots and sense of wanderlust, and her passion for art. Her small and mighty, creative and quirky team—including office pups, Charley and Earl—shares the desire to showcase the work of independent artisans and treasured images of the places and things we all love. At True South, we’re friends, and we’re like family. And we hope our puzzles bring hours of enjoyment to you and your friends and families, too.

Our Inspiration

True South has an all-American spirit, inspired by the cities, states, landmarks and pastimes that mean so much to so many: The places we come from and dream of going to, and the time-honored traditions and fond memories we want to keep. Taking the time to piece together a beautiful puzzle is itself a tradition, and we are inspired by all of our fellow puzzlers – especially all of you who value our commitment to support independent artists, to use the highest quality jigsaw puzzle materials, and to proudly stay Made in the U.S.A.

Our Commitment

Our lives and our puzzles attest to the fact that we love national parks, we love dogs, and we love kids—and are still kids at heart ourselves! And so, we’ve made it part of our mission to support some the exceptional nonprofits caring for the things that matter to us and to our customers. Proceeds from select True South puzzles benefit Friends of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Nashville Humane Association, and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Thank you to all our customers who help support these causes close to our hearts.
