Free coloring pages are everywhere online.
“Free coloring pages” is the most popular search term on the internet when it comes to coloring. It’s no surprise that my free coloring pages are the most frequently downloaded of all of my coloring pages and coloring books. Even when I tried to sell a small run of printed and bound coloring books locally, shoppers would ask the sales clerk in the co-op, “Why should I pay for this when I can get coloring pages for free online?”
Well, why should you? I know why! Free coloring pages do indeed have their drawbacks. Here are eight solid reasons to invest in Candy Hippie coloring pages and coloring books.
Best possible quality. I put careful attention into all of my coloring pages. The free coloring pages you find online tend to be pixellated, blemished and messy, and come in strange sizes that stretch or look weird when you print them out. Even published coloring books sometimes have messy lines. My coloring pages are different. They’re post-produced so that every line is perfectly smooth and clean: the black is perfect black, and the white is pure white. My pages are also sized to fit standard printer paper.
No hassle. Candy Hippie coloring pages always come to you in PDF format. Just print them from your PDF reader or web browser, and voila, you have a page or whole coloring book sized just right for printing, every time.
Reusable. When you color in a bound coloring book, you get just one single chance to enjoy a page and get it right. If you make a mistake, too bad. If you want to color the same page twice just for fun, you’re out of luck. To get around this, you could try photocopying the pages from a bound book, but it’s hard to get the same quality with a photocopier. Photocopying might also violate copyright. Because Candy Hippie coloring books are digital, you can print and color them as many times as you like without sacrificing quality or violating copyright.
Giftable. You are welcome to give printed copies of my coloring books to your loved ones as gifts, while also keeping copies for yourself. Because the quality is so high, recipients won’t mind that their gift came right out of your printer. They probably won’t even notice!
Unbound. Coloring in bound published coloring books can be tricky for two reasons. First, the line art on a page can be printed too close to the seam of the binding, making it hard to reach for coloring. Second, it can be hard to move a bound book around in order to color the tricky parts from just the angle you want. Because my coloring books have no binding, you’re free to color every little nook and cranny from any angle.
Get support from someone who cares. It’s rare for a customer to run into a technical difficulty when downloading and printing Candy Hippie files, but if you have any trouble, I’m here to help. Just contact me and tell me about your issue and I’ll do my very best to help you move that coloring page from your computer screen to your coloring desk. While I’m not a tech genius and can’t guarantee a fix, I have an excellent track record for helping customers get their files printed.
Offer support to an artist and entrepreneur. Candy Hippie is just me. I’m just one girl, drawing line art, designing mandalas, building my website and getting the word out about my art wherever I can. While I’m not quite earning enough to support myself yet, I won’t give up. I really believe in what I do: creating beauty and sharing it so others may bring beauty into their lives. All devoted artists deserve to make a living by following their passion. Support me by trying my free coloring pages, by buying my coloring books, and by sharing my links with your friends. All support is joyously appreciated.
More coloring pages. The more successful my business is, the more I’ll be able to invest in making more art, which means you’ll have a greater variety to choose from and more pages to color overall.
