We design a bespoke crossword using your words and clues and send you a printable PDF (and JPG) file so that you can print it at home or get it printed locally or online.
Crosswords are an extremely personal gift to give to someone - a unique, personal creation directly from you to them.
It takes thought but it's worth it! Whoever receives your gift will love that you gave them something so thoughtful.
Half the fun is coming up with the crossword clues and answers. The other half is seeing the recipient's face when they read it!
There are many kinds of crossword puzzle print:
- show someone's favourite things as answers and a description of them as clues (e.g. TV shows, wine, books, movies, food).
- show travel destinations as answers and dates of travel as clues.
- show people's names as answers and have clues describing something about them underneath
- show names as answers and dates of birth as clues
- show names are answers and job titles as clues (great for retirement crosswords!)
Who would love this print?
- anyone with a birthday - put all their favourite things on one print!
- someone who's retiring or leaving work - put some words to remind them of their colleagues and time at work - ask co-workers to add a clue and an answer each!
- someone who loves crosswords - many people do newspaper crosswords every day so giving them a crossword of their own is a fabulous way to show them that you care
- this is a great gift for inventive, creative people to give to someone else, because it's a such a good way to give a little bit of 'you' in your gift
Make your print personal
- send us between 10 and 16 answers and clues for your crossword - please double-check spellings because we'll use the words exactly as you send them!
- add an optional title at the bottom of the print
- if you've done your own crossword design and you want us to print it, just send us an email with your order number and a digital photo of your design
We print the words in crosswords in capital letters and without punctuation or spaces (so GRANDPA TOM appears on the crossword as GRANDPATOM). We don't print dashes or apostrophes as they break up the crossword design.
- colours - black text, red text, blue text
- Your printable file can be sized to print at A4, A3, 30x40 cm, 12x16 inches - if you want a different size, get in touch and we can add it for you
- this is a digital printable file only - instead of a physical print, we'll send you one PDF and one JPG file of the same crossword design to print at home
How long will it take?
Once we have all the information we need for this print we'll usually complete the design and send it to you within one working day.
If you'd like this print in a different size or colour, get in touch with us (see 'Got a question?' at the bottom of this page). We'll probably be able to help!
