Have you guys heard about this year’s catalog?
Well, not only is it jam-packed with a bunch more art stuff, but the cover is color-able!
With how popular and fun grown-up coloring books are right now, we wanted to make our catalog just as exciting!
These covers can withstand colored pencils, markers, pastels, pens, crayons, watercolor pencils, and even regular watercolors, if you work lightly!
With mine, I chose to go with a limited palette and only use Prismacolor Colored Pencils in blues and greens:
At first, I was a little worried that the trees would fade into the background, but I think it turned out pretty good considering I didn’t have the whole spectrum of colors to work with!
Take a look at some of the others from around Cheap Joe’s!
Megan, our SEO Optimizer, put this beauty together. I love how she left snowy peaks on the mountains!
Our Webmaster, Byron, has been working on this one in between website updates.
His combination of highlighers and colored pencils really makes the cover pop!
TJ, one of our Customer Service Representatives in the call center, took a creative approach in making his mountains into pyramids!
Now that’s thinking outside the box!
One of our retail store associates, Tippy, colored this one. Gotta love those purple-mountain majesties!
It’s easy to forget that you don’t have to color every single shape in its entirety, and by leaving some shapes white, she drew even more attention to the sections that are colored!
Taylor, another CSR, has been working diligently on hers during the limited down time in the call center.
It’s tough to get art done on the job, but it provides such a relaxing atmosphere!
And another of our retail store associates, Kathleen, is slowly but surely filling hers in, too!
She’s even got a little doodle from Cheap Joe himself to add a unique touch!
And these are just a FEW of the awesome covers we’ve got over here at headquarters.
What’s even better is that some customers have been sending us photos of what they’ve done with their catalogs:
Marion from Florida sent us this magical wonderland! She even included glitter, though it didn’t photograph particularly well.
She says this is just her FIRST draft and she plans on putting snow on the mountains in her next one!
Then we’ve got Wilton, also from Florida, who decided to turn one of his mountains into Grandfather Mountain, located just a few minutes from us!
