"Our readers are really enjoying your puzzles...."
— The Valley newspaper


Syndicated Puzzles for Publications since 1993.

Are you looking for high-quality, affordable puzzles for your newspaper, magazine or newsletter? You have come to the right place.

  • No Long-term Contracts!
  • No Obligation, No Commitments!
  • Easy Ordering (and Re-Ordering)!

Since 1993, Satori Publishing has been producing quality, affordable puzzles for newspapers, magazines, newsletters and other publications. Although our speciality is to college publications and small-town (weekly) newspapers, we provide to dailies as well.

In this Internet age, print media such as newspapers and magazines are under extreme pressure to perform, even with a tight budget. Editors and publishers have enough work to do. We are here to help.

The Benefits of Puzzles in Your Publication

  • They increase circulation! The presence of a puzzle increases a newspaper's circulation (both in sales as well as pass-on readership).
  • Advertisers like puzzles! A paper is held onto longer (both for future completion of the puzzle, as well as waiting for the puzzle's solution in the next issue). This significantly increases the chances of their ad being seen. The more their ad is seen, the more likely their ads will get results. If their ads get more results, they are more likely to renew their ads.
  • The puzzle easily pays for itself! The page on which a puzzle appears is considered a prime advertising position. Readers solving a puzzle will invariably scan the ads on that page while taking a break or trying to come up with a solution. The advertising space on the puzzle page is a valuable commodity. The higher advertising rates on this page can easily pay for the puzzle itself many times over.
  • Readers love puzzles! It's a wholesome, educational, challenging and enjoyable pastime - and crossword puzzles are an American tradition!


    Prices are as low as $6 each for crossword puzzles, $6 each for Sudoku puzzles and $5 each for Enigma™ cryptograms. No minimum order. All prices are in U.S. dollars.

    Why Satori Publishing's Puzzles?

  • Quality! Our crossword puzzles meet or exceed standard publishing guidelines for puzzles (diagonally symmetrical, number of black squares will never exceed 25%, no 2-letter words, etc.) Our sudoku puzzles are authentic sudoku puzzles: diagonally symmetrical and only one solution solvable by logic. Our cryptograms consist of thoughtful quotations, not flippant quotes from the current celebrity-of-the-day.
  • Easy to Buy! Just purchase the number of puzzles you want (or, start a subscription for extra savings).
  • East to Use! The puzzles are in standard .tiff format. Just import them into your DTP program (Quark XPress, InDesign, PageStream, etc.)
  • Compact! Our crossword puzzles are 7" high by 4-1/4" wide. Our Sudoku puzzles are 6" high by 4-5/8" wide (the answer is 3-1/8" wide by 3-1/2" high). Our cryptograms are 2" high by 4-1/4" wide. Because these puzzles come in .tif format, you can resize them to fit.
  • Educational! Our puzzles expand horizons by using words that enhance vocabularies as well as drawing on geography, history, literature, etc.
  • Our Legacy! We have been supplying puzzles to newspapers for 20 years. Satori Publishing has been here long before the so-called "dot-com bubble" of 1995-1998 and we are still here long after the "dot-com bust" of 2000-2001.


    The Satori Publishing difference!

  • No long-term contracts! Other syndicates insist on trapping you into a 6 month to 5 year contract. With us, you simply purchase the number of puzzles you want, whether it be one puzzle or hundreds. Agreement to our standard license is necessary, of course.
  • No up-front fees! Other syndicates require "fees" on top of purchasing features. We don't.
  • No disappointments! Because we ship the entire order at once, you can immediately see for yourself that our high quality is consistent. With syndicates that ship weekly, you are taking a chance.
  • No worries! Other syndicates mail weekly... but lost or delayed mail can play havoc with your publishing schedule. We ship the entire order at once.
  • We will work to make it work! Although we can't change content of the puzzles, per se, we are willing to adapt to your special requirements. We do not want your business. We want your repeat business. And we will work to ensure that you are satisfied.
  • We make it easy for you! If you are the typical editor of a newspaper or magazine, you have enough to worry about. We are not a "Johnny-come-lately"; we have been doing this a long time. We know what you need: affordable features for your publication. And we know what you don't want: you don't want any hassles.
