Colorfolio Launches on Kickstarter

tn1.jpg

Colorolio LTD, Ohio based art and design company, is announcing its first ever crowd funded effort.  On May 24, Colorolio launched funding for the Colorfolio, an innovative solution for the Adult Coloring Book Artist. Crowdfunding has become a popular way to launch or test market interesting and new products.  Kickstarter, based in New York City, has emerged as the leader in the crowdfunding space.  Colorolio believes Kickstarter is the best way to give early adopters a product built specifically for the Coloring Book Community.

With the popularity of Coloring Book Meet-ups and Weekend Coloring Parties comes problems to be solved. These artists must carry dozens of pens and pencils with them as well as their coloring books.  Must adult colorists just stuff all this in a bag, which doesn’t offer ideal organization or protection for what are often fragile, but costly, tools of the hobby.  Peter Rasputin, Colorolio’s Operations Manager, states that Colorolio recognized there was a possible market for tackling these issues.

“We wanted to create a folio,” says Rasputin.  “A folio that had a ‘form follows function’ vibe.  We designed ours over months with input from family, friends, and artists in the coloring book space.  Each had their own pet peeve they wanted to see addressed, but all agreed basic problems they wanted solved.  Picking and choosing colors had to be simple and easy; they were tired of rummaging around for the right color.  They wanted something that would organize and protect their pencils.  Finally, they wanted protection for their coloring books.”  Rasputin laughs. “Of course, we wanted the whole thing to look cool at the same time!”

“We experimented,” Rasputin continues.  “We considered a magnetic snap to hold it all together, but that didn’t keep coloring books in place.  Nor would it save the pencils from falling out…”  Final consideration was the look of the folio, according to Rasputin.  It had to be coloring book specific.  So, Colorolio created, with their German designer, a look for the Colorfolio that announced its function through the cover art.  Color folio’s three planned variations each uses mandalas extensively.  Mandalas are a very popular subject in Adult Coloring Books.  “So, that seemed the way to go,” says Rasputin.

With prototyping out of the way, Colorolio hopes to bring an all but fully realized product to the Adult Coloring Book Community.  Through Kickstarter, Colorfolio hopes to find additional funding as well as introduce themselves to the wider community.  “Most of our sales have been on the Amazon platform.  Pre-selling through Kickstarter is another company first.”

AVAILIBILITY AND PRICING

The Colorfolio is available now for funding on Kickstarter through June 19th, 2016.  Three different covers and interiors can be chosen by backers of the project, with price tiers as low as $3.  Estimated delivery, should the project be fully funded, is Nov. 2016.   

Colorolio Discovers Instagram and the World is Better for It

Recently, Colorolio reached out to some Instagramers who take great inspiration from Pop Culture, as well as Arts and Crafts.  Our hope was to see what our cutest little product - the Colorolio Pebble Eraser - might inspire.  The results did not disappoint.  

Instagramer, who goes by the handle ri.care, created some absolutely amazing characters in honor of the Pebble Eraser.  But, don't take our word for it, see for yourself.

Colorolio Announces VIP Club for Artists and Deal Seekers

Coinciding with the release of its latest product, the Pebble Eraser, Colorolio is announcing an innovative program for its customers called The VIP CLUB. By registering their name and email address at colorolio.com, customers can now participate in pre-sale product sampling and receive coupons for deeply discounted products.  Additionally, Colorolio VIP Club members will receive advance notice regarding special deals, such as discounts off multiple purchases as well as helpful tips and tricks.  

Colorolio's VIP Club introductory offer is 50% off one Pebble Eraser.  Shaped like a smoothed over pebble from a river bed, the Pebble Eraser comes packaged in a translucent case, which the company states makes it ideal for gift giving.  Unlike most brick shaped erasers, the Pebble Eraser comes in varied colors: Lime Green, Strawberry Red, and Lemon Yellow.  Colorolio feels that the Pebble Eraser will appeal to young artists because of its modern shape and colors as well as older adults who will appreciate its comfortable feel.  Additionally, the Pebble Eraser is intended for a cleaner experience than traditional rubber erasers, leaving little residue with no color transference. 

"We're excited about the VIP Club," says Peter Rasputin, Operations Manager at Colorolio.  When pressed on how long the 50% offer will be in effect, Rasputin shrugs.  "We'll see.  We're very customer focused.  If this plays well with our audience, we'll keep it going for awhile."  Rasputin continues.  "This past December saw a rush of sales and positive feedback for our first product, the Exemplar Colored Pencils.  This demonstrated to us the viability of our approach; attractively designed, unique products for creators of all ages.  Launching the VIP Club gives customers an opportunity to more closely follow our products and benefit through special deals and discounts."  

Looking forward, Rasputin states Colorolio is planning a revamp of its popular Exemplar Set.  He anticipates an April release.  "We want to continue to expand our product line to our growing list of customers.  VIP members will be the first to know when it arrives."

Handles mistakes both big and small.

Handles mistakes both big and small.

Colorolio announces its latest product: the Colorolio Pebble Eraser.  After almost selling out of its initial supply of the Colorolio Exemplar, a set of 24 wax based colored pencils, the new company is introducting an ergonomic eraser for graphite pencils.  Shaped similarly to a bar of soap, the Pebble Eraser comes packaged individually in a translucent case, which the company states makes it ideal for gift giving.  Unlike many brick like erasers many artists are familiar with, the Pebble Eraser comes in vibrant green, red, and yellow colors.  Colorolio feels that the Pebble eraser will appeal to two demographics: children for its attractive shape and colors and older adults who will appreciate it for how easy it is to hold.

"We're very excited to be expanding our line of products," says Peter Rasputin, Operations Manager at Colorolio.  "This past December saw a rush of sales and positive feedback on our initial offering.  This demonstrated to us the viability of our approach; attractively designed, unique products for creators of all ages."  Rasputin states that following the release of the Pebble Eraser, the company is planning on revamping its Exemplar 24 set of colored pencils with a "2.0" version.  He anticipates an April release for this set.  "We want to continue to expand our product line to our growing list of customers."

Colorolio's Pebble Eraser is made for graphite, charcoal, and chalk media.  It is not intended for wax or oil media.  The Pebble Eraser utility is designed for being comfortable to hold as well as useful for erasing thin lines and thick streaks. Additionally, the Pebble Eraser is intended for a cleaner experience than traditional rubber erasers, leaving little residue with no color transference.

Exemplar Scratch and Dent Sale on Amazon!

As 2016 begins, Colorolio is announcing an affordable way for colored pencil enthusiasts to acquire its premiere set of artist pencils.  After almost selling completely out of all its initial supply of its very first product, Colorolio Exemplar, a set of 24 wax based colored pencils, Colorolio is now offering to the public Scratch and Dent sets. Colorolio's Exemplar colored pencils are packaged inside a hinged tin case.  Some of these sets received damage during initial shipment, denting or scratching the box the pencils are housed in, but leaving the pencils themselves undamaged.  Due to the cosmetic damage received by its packaging, Colorolio is able to justify a lower price for these sets

"We felt it was making lemonade out of lemons," says Peter Rasputin, Operations Manager at Colorolio.  "Although we've received universally positive reviews for the design of our packaging, its what's inside (the packaging) that matters to our customers most; the pencils themselves."   Rasputin states that many customers will opt to keep their colored pencils in a cup or mason jar rather than the tin the pencils come it, so for some, a scratch and dent set will be good value. 

Colorolio's 24 set of colored pencils is presented in a elegant case providing safe storage and travel capability for the artist on-the-go.  Pencils breaking in transit is not uncommon.  Colorolio addresses this real world concern by adding a molded chamber to all its sets providing protection for the pencils inside. This safety feature is the reason so many of these damaged sets are still sellable.
