Dot-to-dot puzzles were once just for kids, but then so were colouring books. Now they're a major new trend for people of all ages, and our dot-to-dot puzzles are helping to lead the charge.
We produce puzzles at any size and in a range of visual styles, and for almost any type of content. We make both colour dot-to-dot puzzles and black-and-white dot-to-dot puzzles.
Puzzles can contain almost any number of dots, depending on page size and font size. Some of our puzzles have over 2,000 dots, for example, but typically they will vary between around 500 and 1,000 dots.
Dot-to-dot puzzles can either consist of one long single line, like in the sketch-style portrait, building and animal puzzles you can see on this page, or they can involve multiple lines. We can make puzzles to whichever specification you prefer, but we always aim to minimize the overall number of separate line segments in order to provide the best experience for the solver. In most of our samples we indicate the start and end of disconnected line segments with hollow dots, but other options are possible, such as stars.
Placing clear, unambiguous number labels is a key part of designing a good dot-to-dot puzzle, and we can provide our puzzles at a range of font sizes to suit your requirements. We place labels at eight fixed positions relative to the dots, so solvers can always be sure they have found the correct dot when solving. We also never 'cheat' by shrinking font sizes to make labels fit, or rotating labels - all our puzzles involve fixed-size, consistently placed labels so solvers will always have a rewarding experience. We think about the 'solving path' too, so the solver does not need to constantly jump around the page hunting for the next number, and in colour puzzles we seek to minimise the number of pen changes.
