Why Are Coloring Books Popular?
There are several reasons people enjoy coloring as adults.
First, it is fun. Coloring is an easy activity that doesn’t require much mental or physical engagement. Using crayons or colored pencils is fun and creative. It’s an affordable hobby that anyone can take up without training, practice, or spending a lot of money.
Second, it’s a break from digital screens and social media. Many users say they appreciate a simple, relaxing activity that works as a “digital detox.” Like book readers who prefer printed books, they prefer a hobby they can hold in their hands.
Third, it’s a form of stress relief. Many people say they use coloring books to get in touch with their artistic side and remove themselves from the daily stress of life.
In an article for Psychology Today, art therapist Shainna Ali noted that the books can be therapeutic because of their “benefits to improving mood, enhancing mindfulness, and reducing mental health stress.”

Popular Sizes and Formats for Coloring Books
Coloring books come in various sizes and formats to cater to different preferences and needs. Common sizes for coloring books include 8.5” x 11” portrait and landscape orientations, ensuring comfortable and enjoyable coloring sessions. The potential size range for a coloring book is 5.5” to 11.69” in width or height, enabling either portrait or landscape orientation to suit your creative vision.
For first-time publishers or those with a limited budget, a straightforward 8.5” x 11” coloring book is the recommended size. This size offers ample space for intricate designs and sufficient margins for comfortable coloring, making it a popular choice among artists and publishers alike.
Custom sizes are also available, allowing you to tailor your coloring book to your specific requirements and preferences. Whether you’re looking for a compact coloring book for on-the-go relaxation or a larger format for intricate artwork, the possibilities are endless.
Selecting the Right Paper for Your Coloring Book
When creating a custom coloring book, selecting the right paper is crucial for ensuring a high-quality finished product and an enjoyable coloring experience. Two distinct paper types are required for a coloring book: one for the interior pages and one for the cover paper.
For the inside pages, white uncoated paper is advised, as it offers the ideal absorbency for coloring materials such as colored pencils, crayons, and markers. This choice of paper ensures that the colors remain vibrant and do not bleed through to the adjacent pages. We offer 60#, 70#, and 80# uncoated text paper.
For the cover of your coloring book, it is recommended to use a heavier paper weight of 100# or 120# to provide durability and a professional appearance. Coated art paper is an excellent choice for the cover, as it offers a glossy finish that enhances the overall appeal of your book. You can also add lamination to the covers to really make the colors pop and offer additional protection.
Binding Options for Your Coloring Book
Selecting the appropriate binding option for your coloring book is essential for both functionality and aesthetics. Saddle-stitched and perfect bound binding are the most popular options for coloring books, offering a professional and durable finish. Saddle-stitched binding involves folding the printed interior sheets and stapling them together down the curved edge. This option is best suited for books with a page count divisible by four and is recommended for books with 60 pages or fewer, due to its limitations.
Perfect binding is an excellent choice for coloring books with a higher page count. This method involves:
- Collating the interior pages into a block
- Gluing them together
- Gluing them into a wrap-around cover made of heavier art paper or lightweight card stock.
For those seeking a more versatile binding option, a spiral bound book, also called plastic coil, or wire-o book might be the perfect choice. Spiral binding and wire o binding involves:
- Punching or drilling holes into the pages down one side
- Binding them with a plastic coil or wire
- Allowing the pages to be turned through 360° and the book to be laid completely flat
This option is particularly popular among artists who desire a more flexible and user-friendly coloring experience.
Design Tips for Creating an Engaging Coloring Book
Creating an engaging and visually appealing coloring book involves careful consideration of various design elements. To ensure clear and crisp images, use vector format and a resolution of 300 dpi. This will allow your artwork to be printed at the highest quality without any pixelation. Adding bleed and trim lines to your design ensures that your book will be printed with the correct margins and that no important elements will be cut off during the trimming process. A suggested inner margin of approximately half an inch provides a comfortable space for coloring, preventing any frustration for your readers.
When designing your coloring book, consider the target audience and theme of your book. For children’s coloring books, ensure there are ample areas within the images for coloring to prevent frustration among younger readers. For adult coloring books, intricate designs and themes that cater to specific interests can create a more engaging experience.
Lastly, don’t forget to design an eye-catching front cover for your coloring book. The cover is the first impression potential buyers will have of your book, so make sure it reflects the content and style of your interior pages. A well-designed cover can make all the difference in attracting customers and making your book stand out on the shelf.
Promoting and Marketing Your Coloring Book
Once you’ve created your masterpiece, it’s time to promote and market your coloring book effectively. Begin by researching your target audience and potential avenues of promotion, both online and offline. This will help you identify the most appropriate channels to reach your potential buyers and maximize brand awareness. Product launches, online advertisements, and social media postings are some of the methods you can employ to reach your target audience and generate interest in your coloring book.
Utilize platforms such as Instagram and Google Keyword ads to showcase your book and attract potential customers. Engaging in conversations about your coloring book both in person and online can also help create a buzz around your product. By sharing your passion for coloring and the unique aspects of your book, you can inspire others to join you on your creative journey and enjoy the benefits of your coloring book firsthand.
Creating a high-quality and engaging coloring book involves careful consideration of various factors, such as selecting the right paper, choosing the appropriate binding option, and designing captivating pages. With our expert guidance and printing services, you can bring your creative vision to life and provide a satisfying and enjoyable coloring experience for your readers.
