You can cancel your subscription here at any time.
How do you protect my payment data?
Transactions are encrypted and secure and are handled by Paypal and Stripe, both well established and trusted payment processors. Paypal and Stripe process sales on our behalf at 'arms length' so your credit card details are never disclosed to Quickworksheets. We are a verified Paypal seller.

If you are in Australia we also accept payment by direct credit to our Australian bank account. You can organise this through your Australian bank's online banking system. Please contact us to request payment by this method and to receive our bank details.

Questions about Worksheets
Can I create worksheets with languages other than English?
In general, yes you can. However, please note that some worksheet makers (such as our Spelling and Error Correction Worksheet Generators) will only work with English text, as the algorithms behind them are designed for English only.
Printable worksheets have the option to use Right-to-Left text (Arabic, Hebrew etc). This is an experimental feature.
Please note that the 'Hand' font only supports latin alphabet languages so please choose a different font if you are using a non-latin based language.
We value your feedback on how we can improve foreign language support. Please contact us to let us know of any problems you encounter.
How do I change worksheet text size?
You can set a custom font size by changing the primary size in the Formatting Bar at the top of each worksheet maker.
Please note that some of our worksheet makers automatically scale the text size to fit the available space, so in these cases the we recommend that you leave the size set at "Auto".
Can I use one word list to make multiple activities?
Yes you can! There are 2 ways to do this:
- If you have just finished making a worksheet and you want to re-use the words you have just entered for a different activity, click on the "Re-use This Content" menu to transfer the content to a different worksheet generator. (Also works for shared worksheets that you have just loaded.)
- If you are creating a new wordlist-based worksheet (Word Scramble, Word Shape, Wordsearch, Bingo, Spelling Test etc.) click "Use a Word List..." to browse and search wordlists. Click on a word list to import it into your new worksheet.
Both features allow you to enter a list of words just once and make a Word Scramble, Wordsearch, Spelling Worksheet and set of Flashcards, all supporting your target language.
To re-use content from a worksheet you've previously made but is not currently on the screen:
- Go to My Worksheets.
- Click on a worksheet title to show available actions.
- Click on "Use as template" to load a copy.
- Use the "Re-use This Content" menu in the sidebar to transfer the text to a different worksheet maker.
Who owns the copyright in worksheets I make?
Copyright in the worksheet content belongs to you. Copyright in the worksheet design and programming code belongs to Quickworksheets.
Can I sell or publish worksheets?
Quickworksheets is intended for teachers, schools and organisations to create materials for use with their own students. You are free to make as many copies as you require for this purpose, however, you cannot sell or publish the worksheets you create with the site. (Except for cost recovery for printing for your own students.)
We have chosen this approach as a protection against market cannibalization (people using our product in effective competition against us). This ensures the long term viability of Quickworksheets for the benefit of all of our members.
There are sites around with thousands of pre-made worksheets available. What advantages does Quickworksheets offer over these sites?
The Quickworksheets advantage is flexibility. You can customise your lesson materials with the exact target language or toward the exact lesson goal. This avoids the usual "60% fit" problem of using pre-made materials. With so many copyright-infringing pre-made worksheets floating around the internet, Quickworksheets also helps to keep you on the right side of the law.
Finally, there is a certain satisfaction that comes from creating your own stuff. Try it and see!
Why is Quickworksheets better than using a word processor for making worksheets?
Have you ever tried making a wordsearch or word scamble with a word processor? It will take you ages! Quickworksheets is quick. It uses clever algorithms to automate the grunt work, and uses clean templates to eliminate time wasted on layout.
Are my worksheets kept private?
By default all worksheets you make are private. They will only be made public if you choose to publicly share them, which you can do on a worksheet-by-worksheet basis. Sharing your worksheets is entirely optional.
What do I get in return for sharing worksheets with other Quickworksheets members?
You get a guaranteed* warm fuzzy feeling from being such a great person!
* Warm fuzzy feeling not legally guaranteed. Your personal warm and fuzzy experience may differ from that of others.
Dotted writing lines do not appear on my print outs!
There is a bug in Google Chrome's built-in PDF viewer on Windows that causes this behaviour. We have a page listing solutions to the Chrome on Windows PDF Printing Bug.

What desktop browsers do you support?

Does Quickworksheets work on smartphones and tablets?
Yes, our site has a responsive design that makes it easy to use on touch devices with smaller screens.
