Select Add-Ons

Enhance your book with the following add-ons:

Double the number of swatches in your book! This also doubles the number of pages from 30 to 60.

Our Marker Paper is one of the thickest papers you can get in a coloring book, so ink bleed through is rare. However, if your coloring style includes heavy layering or you just want a little extra peace of mind, then add a Blotting Page to your order.

Select this option if you do NOT want your pages bound into a book. This is a great alternative to perforation–no need to tear pages out of a book.

I love to swatch my art tools! Beyond the practical sides of swatching (cataloging a set of coloring tools, seeing what their colors are, testing the limits of the tools, getting to know how the tools perform, etc.) I love seeing the beautiful colors neatly displayed in front of me like a menu of possibilities. Swatching inspires me, relaxes me, and it has become one of my favorite artistic pastimes.

Swatch Bliss is a place for you to discover the joys of swatching. Every swatch page has been thoughtfully designed by me to give you plenty of space to record all the important information about each of your art tools: brand, set, color name, color number, date, and miscellaneous notes. Write it all down or just those things that are important to you. I have also given you a generous swatching square with room to try a gradient, different line pressures, doodles, or even smears…try it all!!!

Swatch Bliss comes in multiple volumes to fit multiple needs. No matter which Swatch Bliss volume you choose you can be sure that it will be printed on my favorite artist quality papers (you choose from available options at the time of your order.) The books are carefully bound and ready for your to fill with all your beautiful colors.

    Nice swatching pages

    I ordered Volume 2, unbound. I like to store my swatches in page protectors, this works better for me, so I’m glad they offer this option. I can store the unused ones until I need them and that makes space saving easier for my small craft area.

    I bought the volume 2, Swatching Sets, because I liked the idea of having all my swatches (pencil, marker, gel pens, etc) in one place.
    Shipment was prompt and product was well packed. I started Swatching some of my marker and gel pen sets, the paper is great. The top bounding is awesome and doesn’t get in the way. I received a quick response to a question when I was placing the order and they followed up,to,make sure I received the books and I was satisfied. Get the Swatching books you won’t regret it!

    I love swatching!

    I finally got to use it. (It was a Christmas present) So far, I swatched alcohol markers, water soluble crayons and watercolors. I think the paper worked very well for everything, except the watercolors. They swatched OK, but not the same as they would on watercolor paper. It would be cool to have one with watercolor paper.

    This is a fantastic swatch book. I received it promptly from USPS and the packaging was done with great care. I ordered my book with the mixed media paper which is great quality. I have swatched all of my alcohol markers, color markers, permanent markers, gel pens and crayons. I ended up unbinding my swatch book because I wanted to arrange my swatches by category and brand rather than be limited by the order of the pages with the various number of swatches by page. After I received this book, I quickly realized I needed a second swatch book just for my colored pencils, watercolor pencils and brush pens.

    I LOVE MY SWATCH BLISS BOOK! I ordered my book with the “Double the Pages” option, so you know how thick and beautiful it is! The paper is above and beyond great quality! It’s thick and sturdy, it holds up to burnishing and if I happen to go outside the lines a bit, my eraser erases beautifully! I got my book yesterday and already I’m on my third set of swatches! I’ve been in a coloring slump, and I’ve been in a lot of pain with my medical issues and this book is definitely helping both of those. I can’t wait till next payday so I can order a Custom Coloring Book! Thank you Jennifer and Steve and your Coloring Bliss!

    Question

    Bern

    Hi,
    I am curious to know how the Black Paper swatch charts are created. Is it white ink printed on black paper? Do you have a sample picture to show? It is something I am very interested in. Thank you.

      The difference in black between the ink and the paper is enough that you can see the writing. 😉

    This paper is beautiful

    Diana Dickman (verified owner)

    Now that I’m getting used to swatching, I really like this paper. I have the mixed media which works for both my coloring pencils and my other mediums such as gel pens. My only question is what is the weight of each of these papers? I don’t see that on the web site.
