Discontinuing our Amazon coloring books

Dear Customers,

We regret to inform you that we have made the difficult decision to discontinue selling our coloring books on Amazon. This decision comes after careful consideration of several factors that have made it unsustainable for us to continue.

Amazon revenue share and quality

Firstly, Amazon takes a significant portion of the revenue—up to 70%—which, along with regional taxes, has greatly impacted our earnings. Additionally, the printing quality in some regions has not met our high standards, and the experience of cutting templates out of the book was less than ideal for most of our customers.

Template copy violation

Moreover, a growing number of customers have been copying our templates. Each time a template gets uploaded, it incurs substantial costs due to the computing power required. Normally this would not be an issue, as the costs are accounted in the sale price for the number of templates in the books. However, this widespread copying undermines our ability to sustain our business and develop new worlds and features. Although we have taken measures to prevent copying templates, it was not enough and took too much of our resources.

While we have loved creating and sharing our books, we have ultimately had to take them down. We are currently exploring new business models that may allow us to resurrect the books in the future, though this will take some time.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
For those who have already purchased our books, you will be able to use them until September 15, 2024. After that date, only templates purchased from our online shop will be valid.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
