Sample three of My favorite papers:
Want to see the difference high quality coloring paper can make? The “Bliss Paper Sampler” gives you 30 pages of each of my hand-picked favorite coloring papers (90 pages total.) This gives you a chance to give each paper a try.
Note that the “sampler” papers are lighter versions of the same papers I use in my coloring books and printed coloring pages. I do this so you will have a better chance at these papers being able to feed through your home printer. Please check your home printer specs before purchasing the sampler to ensure your printer can handle the weights of these papers. (Steve’s Hint: instead of looking at the pounds, see if you can find the “GSM” or “GM2” your printer supports and match it up below.)

Happy with my purchase. Printer friendly. I had no idea of how important it is to be using the right type of paper to get the best coloring results. This will start me out. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and products. I really appreciate your videos and tutorials. I’m so happy I found Coloring Bliss.

I was thrilled with the Paper Sampler. It was well organized and I was able to share some papers with a close friend to try.

I am enjoying using the different papers and think having different textured paper to try the various coloring tools on is a terrific idea…money saving so that instead of buying a ream of each, you get to try each one other than the metallic to determine what paper you prefer. Since I only have an ink jet printer at home, Steve suggested leaving the printed paper overnight before coloring to avoid smearing….typical problem with ink jet prints. This tip really works. Thank you Steve and Jennifer

Love the ‘Paper Sampler.’ Great value! All 3 work w/ our home office printer (Epson XP-340). Better paper makes your coloring easier & more beautiful. Thx guys! (I’d have no idea where to start, w/ out this handy packet of papers.) 🤓

Loved this sampler pack. I’ve been using the paper you previously recommended for colored pencils for months and love it. The paper you have for colored pencils in the sampler pack is thicker but it still fits in my printer just fine. I’m in love with the marker paper and how well my markers just glide over the paper. I’ve used almost all of it up already. I haven’t tried the multi media paper yet, but I’m looking forward to trying it with my water color pencils and pens as well as my gel pens. Thank you so much for offering this sampler pack. It’s so nice being able to try different papers out without having to spend time and money trying out all the different types of paper available.

When I got the paper sampler I quickly ran off some coloring pages from this site. The first one I tried was the colored pencil paper and to really see what the hype was about I used plain old Crayolas. I have always colored but never like a colorist. The picture I made got me excited to try new techniques and new media. I like being able to try out the different papers before committing to a full ream.

Picture looks amazing and when you factor in Crayola pencils? Wow just wow! No offense to Crayola, let me just add as a company and benefactor of children and schools…. KUDOS.
I’m merely saying I’d love to see what you would do with this having used some Poly’s or even those new #Arteza’s they are awesome for their price range. Ok well just wanted to say great job!!! I’ll shut up now lol.

I always want to try the different papers that Jennifer suggests but I didn’t want to buy whole reams until I knew if I liked the paper. Jennifer and Steve provide a perfect solution. Thank You. I have not had the time to try all of the papers yet. I really love the paper suggested for colored pencils. It makes
a huge difference. I am looking forward to working with all the papers.
Update. Using the paper in the Sampler pack is amazing. It didn’t realize how much using the correct paper helps! The finished pages are better but best of all, the paper makes my coloring experience more enjoyable. Well worth the money.

This sample packet is perfect! I can use my printer on two of them but the heavy card stock which I love, will not work, so I go up to my hyper local printer, take copies of the pictures I want along with my sample paper and they will do it for me! Saves so much space too.

I’ve really enjoyed the colored pencil paper and the multi-media paper. Finding the best paper really made a difference to my coloring, and I not only wouldn’t have known what paper to get at all, but I wouldn’t even be able to find it up here in the middle of half-nowhere. Really glad I found this!
