We design a bespoke crossword from your family names. We send you a printable PDF (and JPG) file so that you can print it locally or send it to an online printer. You send us the family names and we design the crossword.
A family names crossword is unique to every family. All the members of the family are shown interconnected, together on one print. This design has a very clean, contemporary look.
To make your print more personal you can add a title at the bottom of the print (e.g. the family surname).
We print the names in capital letters and without punctuation or spaces (so LILY JANE appears on the crossword as LILYJANE). We don't print dashes or apostrophes as they break up the crossword design too much.
We design the crossword from your names and we'll position your optional text somewhere that sits nicely in the crossword. See our gallery of images for examples.
In the unlikely event that it's not possible to make a crossword from the names you send us, we'll get in touch with you. This can happen, for example, when one of the names has no letters in common with any of the other names, or when lots of the names in the list are very short. We can usually add another word to make a crossword possible (LOVE or FAMILY, for example) but we'll agree this with you before deciding what to do next.
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.
