Cipher wheels are powerful form of encryption and popular escape room prop.
Cipher disks have been trusted to relay top secret information throughout history.
Some employ ridiculous levels of encryption requiring complex computations to break while others will not withstand several hours of cryptoanalysis.
We aren't here to talk about the history of cipher wheels though are we?
Let's talk about creating a personalized cipher wheel custom made for you.
If you are not familiar here are a few of the more popular applications for cipher wheels:
- Escape Rooms
- Escape Room Birthday Parties
- DiY Escape Rooms
- Teaching Cryptography
- They are awesome and why would you not want one made to your specifications?!

How can I create my own personalized cipher wheel?
I try and keep the process as easy as possible for you.
The main things you need to decide are:
- Size - Between 4.4" - 16"
- Number of Wheels - 2 to 5 wheels
- For ciphers with more wheels you will want a larger size
- The characters, letters, &/or numbers you want used for each wheel.
- DaFont.com has a bunch of really great fonts and wingdings available for free to choose from
- Wheel Color(s) - I have 4 different type to choose from. They can be used to further customize the look of your cipher
- Baltic Birch - Whiteish Tone
- Walnut - Blackish Tone
- Alder - Brownish Tone
- Maple - Whiteish Tone
- The "Top Cap" - This is the top portion of the cipher which can be:
- A shape with or without text
- A custom symbol or image such as seen on the Egyptian Cipher and Runes Cipher (shown in the main image)
- Number of Wheels
- Characters for Each Wheel
- Wheel Colors
- Top Cap
