Crossword Puzzle Theme words: All of our standard crossword puzzles are initially created in the free-form format with 100% topic specific words and clues. When converting to the standard format, we try to follow the construction traditions established by Simon and Schuster and the New York Times, which state that 1) theme words, generally 3-5 in a standard 15x15-square puzzle, should share some relationship or other element in common and 2) clues in an ideal puzzle should provide a well-balanced test of vocabulary and knowledge including both classical and modern subjects. At Q.E.T.S, we try to include a minimum of 6-10 theme words in each standard large print puzzle along with an additional 5-10 theme related definitions for words that have more than one meaning.


Additional sets of large print crossword and word search puzzles are now available for a nominal fee. Each set includes either 20 or 80 large print puzzle PDF files along with a copyright release for use by you, your business or organization. The copy authorization allows you to edit and print the puzzles with your logo or other graphics, reprint puzzles in any form, and publish the puzzles in your organization newsletters or magazines.
