About

The Struggle...

So many colored pencils, pens, and coloring books! Question is, how do you carry, organize, and protect them all?  Wouldn’t it be nice if there was an elegant solution for the Adult Colorist?  A folio built specifically for your needs...

...a folio designed to store, organize, and protect your pencils and art while being fun and attractive at the same time. Something lightweight, easy to carry with a "form follows function" aesthetic. We love a meaningful challenge at Coloroio!  So, we hashed out the solution over months - in collaboration with some of our customers - and came up with the Colorfolio: the Folio for the Adult Coloring Book Artist.

The Colorfolio

  • Cover and interior are made of water resistant polyurethane (i.e. pu leather or "pleather"). 
  • Trim, zipper strip, and elastic are machine stitched for maximum strength. 
  • Interior features 24 elastic loops designed to keep all your coloring tools held firmly in place.
  • Two snap top, interior pockets. Interior pocket measurements are 2.5" x 3.75" x ~.75".
  • Built to hold either two standard sized adult coloring books (11"  x 8.5" x .15") or one oversized adult coloring book (12" x 8.9" x .25").  This is in addition to your 24 colored pencils or pens. 
  • Available in three different styles*...
"Beautiful Dreamer"

"Beautiful Dreamer" interior is pink with white pockets, pink zipper pull.

*Our Mark I prototype (featured in our video) has a green interior.  Pink tested better with family and friends, so Beautiful Dreamer will feature a pink interior.

Our other planned variations include...

"Toad's Epiphany"

...and, yes, you can color the covers themselves if you wish.

We’ve made the prototypes for each variation (as seen above). Now we ask for your help in taking all this to the next level!  By contributing to our Kickstarter, you’ll help insure a full production run of the Colorfolio, bringing what we feel is a unique, fun item into reality.

Shipping

- Domestic Shipping, within the U.S., is paid for in full through your pledge.  

- International Shipping is paid only in part through your pledge, with extra charges depending on ship to location.  We're keeping things simple as possible, shipping to specific regions only.  We appreciate your patience and understanding in this regard.

Risks and challenges

Last year, our little company introduced our premiere product: a very popular set of 24 colored pencils. We sold out in January. In February, we introduced the Colorolio Pebble Eraser (still available on Amazon). So, we've been through the design/production process and feel confident we can - with your support - bring this unique and beautiful product to life!

We've worked out the kinks through prototyping. To reduce chances of manufacturer error, Colorfolio will be quality controlled on the factory floor as well as independently inspected by a third party company to guarantee your Colorfolio is excellent on all counts.

Our research shows Kickstarter Projects that underestimate their delivery time cause the biggest headaches for backers. So, we're committing to two agreements...

1.) A conservative estimated delivery. Should we fund, we feel confident about estimated delivery of November, 2016.

2.) Once funding has been reached, twice a month updates minimum, regardless of progress.

Crazy Success also brings its own challenges, we've been told. This is the X factor. Should this happen, we will double our efforts to report news as it occurs.

We're committed to delivering you the very best Colorfolio with regular communication on our progress, and within our stated time frame!

Thank you for your consideration and thank you for supporting the Colorfolio.
