Welcome

Welcome to Word Search Printer, the premier program for creating and printing your own custom word search puzzles. Some ideas for using the program include:
  • You can use the program to generate educational word search puzzles. Word search puzzles can be used in schools and educational environments (or home schooling) as an enjoyable way to practice spelling, English as a Second Language (ESL), or revise general knowledge.

  • You can also use the program to generate word search puzzles for playing with friends and family, for example to keep the kids busy on a long train or plane journey, or as a family activity to play at Christmas or Thanksgiving.

  • You can use the program to create word search puzzles to publish in newspapers, newsletters and magazines (please make sure that you purchase the appropriate License for this option - see below). For example, if your company publishes a quarterly newsletter for customers, why not put a word search puzzle on the back page?
The Word Search Printer program comes in two flavors:
  1. Free Trial

    This is free, but copyrighted, software. We grant you permission (subject to our License Agreement), at no charge, to use this version as long as you want.

    The Free Trial of Word Search Printer while it does work, does also include some important limitations (principally that all puzzles and solutions are overprinted with "Unregistered"). Although there are some limitations, the Free Trial does otherwise work, and should therefore allow you to evaluate the program and decide whether it's for you: if you decide it is you should register.

  2. Registered

    The Registered version is available to users who pay a small fee to our company (see instructions). The Registered version includes all the features of the Free Trial version, plus many more features too. The

    Depending on your requirements, you can purchase different types of licenses for the registered version. In each case, you need to purchase 1 license for each computer that you intend to use the software on (discounts are available for multiple licenses purchased at the same time).

    The different types of licenses are (definitive details are in the license agreement, so this is just a summary):

    • Family License: You and your immediate family/household may use the software to prepare word search puzzles for your own use. The software may be used for educational or entertainment purposes only, and not as part of any commercial or money-making activity.

    • Education License: You, staff and students of your school, college, university or other bona-fide educational institution may use the software to prepare word search puzzles for your own use, and for magazines, newsletters and other publications published by the educational institution. The software may be used for educational or entertainment purposes only, and not as part as any commercial or money-making activity.

    • Community License: You and other staff of any particular charity, religious or bona-fide non-profit organization may use the software to prepare word search puzzles for your own use. and for magazines, newsletters and other publications published by the organization. The software may be used for educational or entertainment purposes only, and not as part as any commercial or money-making activity.

    • Business License You and other staff of any particular business, company or other commercial venture may use the software to prepare word search puzzles for your own use. and for magazines, newsletters and other publications published by the organization.
You can tell which version of the program you are currently using by looking for a message in the main screen (yellow text on a dark red background, as shown below) indicating that you are using the Free Trial version (if the message is not present, you are using the Registered version), or by simply clicking About... on the Help menu. In the case of the About... message, you will apart from the Free Trial or Registered status, you will also see a line describing what type of license you have.
