What does it cost?

Many things on the internet are free. Why not this?
In general, it’s possible to be the best or the cheapest but not both. We chose to be the best. We respect that many people prefer the cheapest, and this may not be the site for them. But if you want the best, you’ve come to the right place.
Do you have a money-back guarantee?
Yes. If you are not satisfied for any reason, you can have a full refund.
Do you offer word searches?
Check out the word search maker
at our sister site, MyWordSearch.com. You can also buy a joint subscription to both sites for a 20% discount when you sign up for a plan.
How do I print?
Click the green 'Make Printable' button in the top left of the page when you are ready. You will be prompted to create an account if you haven’t already, and then see payment options. Once paid, you will have a big green 'Preview + Publish' button that will put your puzzle in a format that can be printed or solved online.
Why do I need an account?
