How To Make Your Own Bingo Cards

To get started, tap the example card where it says “Tap To Start”.  You’ll now be able to customise the card using the controls and see what your changes look like as you make them.  It may help to watch the tutorial video first.

How The Controls Work

Enter A Title

Type in the words you’d like to appear at the top of your card above the grid

Enter words/emojis or numbers

Here’s where you put in the items for your themed bingo card.  You will need at least as many items on your list as there are spaces on your card, more if you want to make a set of playable cards with different items on.  (We recommend a minimum of twice as many items as spaces for playable cards).

Just want numbers? Head over to the Classic Bingo section where you’ll find fully customisable and playable 75 ball and 90 ball bingo cards to print out or play online.

Select Grid Size

Use the drop down to select 3 x 3, 4 x 4 or 5 x 5 depending on how long a game you want and how many items you have to put on the card.

Select Font Family

Use the drop down to choose one of six text styles

Wrap Words

This is on by default and we recommend leaving it on as otherwise the print will be tiny

Include free space?

This option is only available if the grid is set to 3×3 or 5×5.  It leaves the centre square blank.

Checked Square

This controls how a daubed square looks when you play online – the default is white text on a black background but you can set it to anything you like.  Click in the box to select.

Header Background

This controls the look of the area above the grid on the card.  You can select font colour and background colour (with more than 16 million colours to choose from) and you can also choose to upload and use your own image.  To fit exactly, the image should be 700 x 136 pixels but you can use a smaller image and play around with the position, repeat and size controls to get a repeating pattern.

Opacity controls the extent to which the card background shows through the header background.  At 100%, the header background will be solid and at 0% you won’t see it at all – you’ll see the header text floating directly on the card background.  On this card, it defaults to 50%.

Grid Background

This controls the look of the grid and works the same way as Header Background but includes an extra option, Border Color, to set the colour of the grid lines.  Again, opacity has been set to 50% and can be changed.  There’s an option to use an image for the background instead of a solid colour but this is not recommended as it can make the text hard to read.

Card Background

This controls the background colour or image for the entire card.  To fit exactly, the image needs to be 700 x 836 pixels but again, you can use a smaller image and set the position, repeat and size controls as you wish.  We’ve used a nice photo of some flowers and butterflies – to remove it and use a plain background, hit the X and to replace it, hit the Choose Image button and upload your own.

Card Generation

Once you’re happy with the look of your sample card, hit the Generate Bingo Cards button.  This will take you to the Print and Invite screen where you can print a set of cards and/or send a link to a printable, playable card to friends via email.

To print, choose the total number of cards you want to print and how many you would like per page, then hit the Generate Printable Cards button to create a set of printable cards, all different from each other.

To invite, enter your email in the Your Email box and your friends’ emails in the Invite Emails box, one per line, then hit the Invite button.  A link to a unique bingo card will be sent to each address.  We don’t store these email addresses. We do store your email address but only for the purposes of preventing abuse of the bingo card generator.

If you just want to make one card to share on social media, use the Invite button but only fill in the Your Email address.  You’ll be sent a link to your card.
