Chroma.Club made some great changes last month by making the book bigger, themed and introducing custom artwork. This month they’ve introduced voting for your favorite artwork! Subscribers can go to the Chroma.Club Facebook page to vote and Chroma.Club will enter 1-2 selections of the top ranking art in the next booklet. I think Chroma.Club does a great job of listening to their fans!

Chroma.Club’s goal is to “blend the calming benefits of art therapy with the fun of creativity and innovation, by publishing design that won’t bore you, and will create a real connection between the original artworks and the colors you use to add more fun, life, or character to them.”

I took this booklet to my sister’s house last weekend and everyone had fun coloring it! It’s so easy to travel with and doesn’t add much weight to my already overstuffed packing system (if you can call it a system at all) – which is a great feature if you ask me.

My nephew (shout out to Griffin!) did this one. He is clearly more artistic and has much more patience and better eyesight than I do! Look how well he colors inside the lines.

Chroma.Club’s artwork hits it out of the park again this month! I hope they do my Zodiac sign in October. I can’t wait to color that page! But honestly, I wanted to color everything this month. I had a hard time deciding which page to start with.

Verdict: I like Chroma.Club better and better each month. They have a great variety and really cool, interesting artwork in these booklets which I enjoy much better than the full size coloring books. We found this size was a bit difficult for two people to color at the same time but the size is great for one person and the booklet is easy to take with you. 

As for the value of this subscription, we think $8.00 for such a cool book with interesting artwork, is a good value. I love having the new designs each month as well as the variation in art. Everyone is different though so you have to ask yourself if the $8.00 cost is worth it to you. An adult coloring book on Amazon typically costs between $5.00 and $10.00. We own three adult coloring books and if you compare the number of pages you receive, the large book format from Amazon is a better deal. What I don’t like about the large books is that they aren’t as easy to take with you and they typically stick to one theme. We end up getting bored with the larger books. Chroma.Club has different designs and themes with an easy to carry booklet and because of this I find Chroma.Club coloring booklets are what I choose most often.

Does Chroma.Club look like something you might enjoy each month?

  1. I’ve tried adult coloring books for stress relief when they first came out. The pictures in the books that I bought were too intricate to use crayons and the pencils weren’t dark enough. I tried markers but they bled through. I finally found softer pencils that were made for adults but the aforementioned intricacy of the pictures meant that it took hours to make something pleasing to the eye.i found this very stressful. Alas. Looking through the pictures in this subscription box, I realized that most of them seemed to be exactly what I’ve been looking for! I believe that I could do one in no more than an hour and end up with a pleasing picture! Maybe the calming satisfaction that I remember from coloring in my childhood is within reach!
