We don’t accept malicious or threatening messages or ones that contain full frontal nudity. If your message doesn’t pass this criteria we’ll ask you to send us another one.
Yes it can be seen multiple times and we delete them after 3 months.
128MB. If you want to send something bigger, you’ll have to upload it to a site like Youtube or Vimeo and paste the link in the order form.
The written message and the uploaded message are both shown after they solve the puzzles. They will not see any message from you in the letter or before they solve all the puzzles and log into the secret online location.
For images we accept: jpg, jpeg, png and gif. For video: mp4 and mov. For sounds recordings: wav. Those are the only file types that can be uploaded. If you have a pdf you can convert it to jpeg using a free online converter tool such as www.pdftoimage.com.
Yes we do. We check all messages to make sure they are working and appropriate.
Only if you tell them in your message! We don’t include anywhere that it’s from you. If you don’t say who it’s from in your message and they email us to find out we’ll tell them.
No you shouldn’t do this. The envelope plays an important part in the overall experience so removing the puzzles from it would detract from it.
The puzzles range in difficulty and type. The first 5 are designed to be easier, and the last 6 harder. They test different skills, eg visual, lateral thinking, numerical, word-based, spatial, so if they are not good at one type puzzle, they may be good at another type. If they need help clues are available, and if they get really stuck they can access the answers.
We use the full name of the recipient on the front of the envelope, for example.
123 Example Road
Then the letter will say
someone you know has a message for you…
We don’t put anywhere the name of the sender. If you want them to know, you’ll have to include it in your message.
20min – 2hrs on average.
There’s currently one version with one set of puzzles. We are going to create a new version in the future. Then there’ll be the option to choose between the original or new one.
It’s designed for the average adult, so about 15+. It’s quite a challenge, so if you give it to a young teenager they will likely need help.
Invitations (Party, Wedding)
Message to a loved one

For a special announcement (Engagement, New baby)

They’ll have access to up to two clues for each puzzle. If they still can’t solve it they can access the answers, so they’ll always be able to see your message.
Purchasing multiple Enigmagrams
To send out multiple, just order the total number you want, then send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and include the different names and addresses of the recipients. It doesn’t matter what recpient name and shipping address you use when ordering, as we’ll update it with the information from your email. If you want to send a different message to different recipients, please include these messages in the email.
You can buy two at the same time if they are going to the same address. Just fill in the message details and add the two orders to the cart separately. Don’t worry about the shipping name field at checkout, we don’t use that data, instead we use the ‘Recipient name’ field you filled out when creating the message, so you can rest assured they’ll be addressed to the right people. If you want to send two to different addressed please buy them separately and complete the checkout process separately.

All Enigmagrams are sent from the UK
We offer free 1st class delivery from the Royal Mail to the UK. We post the Enigmagram the latest the day after it’s ordered, so it will take 2-4 days to arrive to you from the day you order it (excluding Sundays and bank holidays) 90% arrive after 2 days.
There’s also the option of ‘Signed On Delivery’ for an extra £2.26. This option is good if you want confirmation it’s been delivered. If you send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org we’ll let you know if it’s been delivered or where it’s current location is. It too will take 2-4 days from the day you order (excluding Sundays and bank holidays).
There’s also the option of Next Day Delivery if you need it quickly. This will take 2 days to arrive from the day you order (excluding Sundays and bank holidays). We can provide a tracking number if you send an request to email@example.com.
If you’re sending it abroad there’s the options of untracked delivery by the Royal Mail for £3.45 or ‘Tracked and Signed’ for £8.65. If you’re sending to Europe it’ll take approximately 3-5 days to arrive. If to the rest of the world, 5-10 days.
With orders sent to the UK and EU, no receipt or information about the price of the Enigmagram is included. International orders, however, do have the price printed on the delivery label which is necessary for customs.
Something's gone wrong
Yes. Send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll let you know.
This can be caused by the following:
The file being too large. Make sure it is not larger than 128MB
The image being too wide. Try making it smaller.
The image file type. If uploading a PNG try uploading as a JPEG.
Remove any unusual characters from the file name such as apostrophes.
If all else fails just order without uploading the file then send the file to email@example.com. Include your order details so we can make sure your message is uploaded to the correct order. The max file size that can be sent over email is 20MB so you may have to use a file sharing program like WeTransfer
If your order is still in the cart then you can delete it, go to the shop page and order again. If you’ve already ordered please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the changes required and we’ll make them for you. Please include your order number in the emai.
The Royal Mail are very reliable, but if you choose an untracked delivery option there’s always a small chance it could get lost in the post. If you’ve waited longer than the below times, then it would be worth contacting your local postal sorting office and asking them if they have it.
UK -3 days
Europe – 7 days
Rest of the world – 9 days
If you still can’t locate it then get in contact at email@example.com and we’ll confirm your address and send you another.
