How to use printable coloring pages for adults
Printable coloring pages are fun and easy to use. Print and color your favorite pages again and again without having to purchase a whole new book. You can also experiment with different techniques and color schemes. If you don’t like how your page has turned out, or want to try again with other colors, no problem! Just print the page out again and recolor it.
The biggest “secret” to printing your own coloring pages is using a premium paper, not whatever cheap copy paper is in your work printer.
For the best coloring experience, print your coloring pages on 32lb bright white paper. This paper is thick, bright, and smooth for rich colors and easy blending. Your coloring pages feel professional, like in higher end books, when you use this paper.

If you have access to a laser printer, you can print coloring pages watercolor paper. Laser toner doesn’t run when it gets wet. Laser printed pages are also great for coloring with markers. Copiers are laser, as are printers called “laser jet.”
If you don’t have a laser printer but really want to color on a laser print, print off a copy on an inkjet, then make a copy on a black and white copier. Black and white copies are usually just a few cents at an office supply store, library, or even (sometimes) the post office.
Your coloring implements have an influence on your coloring experience, too. If you like to color, investing in a set of high quality coloring tools is worth it. Let’s take a quick look at three popular choices for adult coloring:
- Gel pens
- Colored pencils
There are tons of cheap gel pen sets available. Unfortunately, many cheap gel pens don’t simply color well. Purchasing a cheap set that doesn’t actually color is very frustrating. My husband loves gel pens, so we’ve been burned by our fair share of cheap-o pens that don’t work well. That’s why I wrote an entire post on the best gel pens for coloring. Here’s the TL;Dr version with the best budget pick and best overall gel pens for coloring:
In the photo below, you can see some gel pen coloring on a printable owl coloring page. Gel pens are super fun to color with, especially when you use them to add sparkly accents. They’re great for blending, especially when you get nice “juicy” ones like Sakura Gellyrolls (my husband’s favorite brand).
The best budget markers for coloring Crayola Supertips. They’re a bargain and fun for both adults and children. They’re popular for hand lettering practice, too, because you can make brand strokes or thin lines with them. The fine tip makes them better than many other markers for coloring details.
Please note: Crayola Supertips caps don’t always look exactly like the ink when you color. In general, I think the colors are darker than what the cap shows. I’ve noticed this problem with lots of markers, including much more expensive ones. I recommend making squiggles on a scrap sheet of paper if you’re unfamiliar with the color so you don’t run into any unpleasant surprises.
- Sold as 50/ST.
- Markers have tips that are smooth, not scratchy.
- Fine line markers with a versatile tip that draws thick or thin lines.
My absolute favorite colored pencils are Prismacolors. Prismacolor colored pencils are soft and creamy, even their more budget lines. Prismacolors color easily and are great for blending. A colorless Prismacolor blending pencil is the perfect tool for the job if you want to start blending colored pencils.
- Soft, thick cores are perfect for shading and shadows
- Ultra-smooth, even color laydown
- Lightfast, richly saturated pigments
