Book & Pages Business
Do you have a natural talent
for drawing? Why not consider starting your own coloring book collection,
drawing various lined images for children to color. You can then sell
these original coloring pages or books, either as a collection or individually.
Most people do not realize
there actually is a market for coloring pages beyond the licensed cartoon
character coloring books (such as Disney & Looney Tunes) that you
see for sale everywhere. But there are actually many places and markets
that do buy coloring pages on a regular basis.
Restaurants are often looking
for coloring pages with a tie-in to the restaurant for their children's
Museums often offer a coloring
page to children (and sometimes even a coloring area as well) that is
related to the museum itself. And some sell coloring books in the gift
shop, with the coloring pages done as different areas of the museum.
Businesses with a children's
activity area also look for themed coloring pages (a hardware store might
want coloring pages of tools or a house-building site, for example).
This is a niche business, and
if you become well known locally for your work, you will find that people
begin coming to you. Don't forget to put your name and phone number on
all the artwork as well.
