Ready to try some easy cryptograms?These are great way to break into the decoding fun of cryptography. When solving any cryptogram, remember that each letter of the alphabet represents a different letter.

We'll give you some specific hints to help you solve the puzzles on this page. Use the links for the printable cryptograms and solutions.
