PlayingColor: The World’s First Coloring Playing Cards

AU$ 3,301

59

Note about Currency: 

As I'm based in Sydney, Australia, the project goal and all pricing is given in Australian Dollars (AUD). We have included an approximate USD conversion for all reward tiers such as in the video. The project goal of $3,300 AUD is approximately $2,520 USD.

Hi, I’m Claire and I’ve been designing for over 10 years. I’m a MASSIVE fan of coloring books. I believe there’s no greater joy than relaxing and unleashing your creativity with colors. 

But I’ve always wanted something that I could actually use. It’s always really disappointing and heartbreaking to finish a coloring book only to put it away….Never to be touched again.

I felt that this was such a waste of your unique coloring talents. I wanted to create coloring that YOU could use. Something YOU could share with your friends and family. 

So that’s why I created PlayingColor

PlayingColor is a coloring revolution that allows you to relax and color by releasing your inner artist, then laugh and play as you share them with your friends and family.  

Each PlayingColor deck contains 54 uniquely designed playing cards for you to pour your creativity into.  

And they’re designed for everyone! Whatever your age, gender, or coloring skill, you’ll be relaxing and creating artworks in no time! PlayingColor is the perfect way to bring color and creativity back into your stressful life!

The Coloring: 

Coloring is an amazingly therapeutic way to de-stress and boost your mood! Not only that, coloring is scientifically proven to help alleviate free-floating anxiety, remove negative feelings and improve your focussing skills.

This is why I made sure to capture the magic of coloring in these cards. 

Quality means a lot to me. So that’s why I made sure the paper is flawless for coloring. It’s thick so your colorings won’t sink through and it’s friendly with any coloring material.

The Playing:

As a playing cards fan, I wanted to capture the authentic fun feel of traditional playing cards. The cards thickness matches most traditional playing cards and it’s thick enough to avoid translucency.

Also, these cards have a gloss laminate back coating for your easy shuffling. Cards that you can actually play with!

The Designs:

Coloring is a long and rewarding process. As a result, I designed the cards to give you maximum joy. The 54 uniquely designed cards will provide you with hours of entertainment, with intricate designs to allow you to express your style.

I’m a fan of Mandalas and I’ve incorporated its features in the cards to make sure that each card you color will be refreshingly new and special.

Here are the 54 Designs:

Risks and challenges

I have done a lot of research and reviewed numerous manufacturers to ensure that this project goes as smoothly as possible. I've found a supplier who provides excellent quality cards, and another international supplier for the tuck boxes. I've reviewed their quality and I believe they are perfect. The designs are 100% finished so there should be no delay in sending the digital proofs to the manufacturer, and then onto production.

There may be unanticipated problems which could arise however I will be open and transparent to all backers if any difficulties are encountered.
