Get relief - Creative Relief!

Creative Relief coloring books are for kids, grown-ups and anyone else in need of coloring therapy. Even if you aren't stressed and just need a little color in your life, Creative Relief coloring books offer a variety of designs and images to color, ranging from simple open patterns to intricate and puzzling coloring challenges.

Features you get in Creative Relief coloring books:

A matte-finish cover to reduce visibility of exterior scratches and greasy fingerprints. Coloring frequently involves snacking. No judging.

A low page count per book and a creased cover make it easier to open the book flat for coloring.

White interior paper to let the true hue of the colors you choose fill the page. Baby pink shouldn't look like baby puke.

60# interior paper weight, not traditional coloring book pulp/newspaper. This provides a stronger surface for crayons and colored pencils. However, some markers and paint may bleed through.

Single-sided pages no pictures on the back (and NEW- a blackened page back) means no damage to the next piece of art from bleed through. This also allows for art to be removed (for framing, making paper airplanes, lining the bird cage, whatever) without missing-out on the next art piece.

No double page layouts and space from the interior binding so the whole picture can easily be colored.

A blank testing page specifically for testing your coloring mediums and hues before applying. No more test slashes and dots on the page of your art!

A bleed through page to use with mediums like markers and paint that may bleed.
