How to print your own coloring pages
Printing your own coloring pages is awesome because it saves you time and money. No more buying coloring books that your child only colors one page of. They’re great for classroom situations – just print off as many copies as you need!
For professional-feeling coloring pages that are fun to color, make sure to use a nicer paper (not whatever cheap feeling paper is in the printer at work). Thicker paper allows you to play with layering and blending without having your designs instantly feather and bleed.
I use and recommend HP 32# paper for coloring pages. It’s thicker and brighter than “regular” copy paper.” It’s also acid free, which means your pages won’t yellow over time if you decide to keep them. The paper is very smooth, which means pencils and crayons glide and color easily on it.

For a glittery Mardi Gras fun, color these pages with gel pens. They are perfect for adding sparkly accents to these Mardi Gras mask designs and the mandalas in the background. Even if you don’t want to use all your gel ink coloring the entire page, at least add some sparkle! See this post for the best gel pens for coloring, including a great budget pick. The short version is that the pens shown below are the best overall and best budget pick:
My favorite budget markers for coloring are Crayola Supertips. They’re a bargain and fun for adults and children. They have a fine tip for details, but can also be used on the nib’s side for broader swaths of coloring.
- 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.
Some of the best colored pencils are Prismacolors. Even the more budget lines of Prismacolor colored pencils are softer and creamier than brands like Crayola. 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
