A Colorist's Guide To Amazon Prime Day 2017


Today (July 10th) is the first day of Amazon’s crazy good, Black Friday dwarfing, Prime Day. In case you haven’t heard about it let me let you in on why every adult coloring enthusiast should be very excited about it.

Amazon Prime Day first launched in 2015 to celebrate the company’s 20th anniversary with the promise of being the biggest sales event of the year, a promise they delivered on. A feat they repeated in 2016, and are set to crush this year. Prime Day this year starts at 9pm EST in the United States, 6pm PT, or 6pm in the UK and will run for 30 straight hours through July 11th.

Why Colorists Should Care


Amazon.com has one of the largest adult coloring book selections available. In fact, a search for “adult coloring book” in Amazon returns over 70,000 results, and on Prime day many of these will be on sale.

While coloring books for adults are not exactly expensive items to begin with, on Prime Day you will be able to find a ton of coloring books that are greatly discounted and supported with free one day shipping. All this combined means that there is no better day in the year to stock up on coloring books, or even get those new markers and pencils you have been eyeing since last year.

Prime Day however does come with one big stipulation, it’s only available to Amazon customers who are part of the company’s $99 a year Prime membership. But don’t let that ruin your dreams of an early coloring Christmas, because you can actually sign up for a free 30 day trial of Amazon Prime, and get in on all the available deals!
