Before we get to the list, we need to talk about printer paper. If you’re an adult who loves to color, then I’m sure you’ll agree that not just any old printer paper will do. Thin, grey tinged paper is simply unacceptable. Instead, you require a high quality, thick, bright white paper that doesn’t cost a fortune. That’s why I recommend this Hammermill Color Copy Paper. It’s acid-free and heavier and brighter than regular paper so it’s perfect for coloring.
*Note: You came here looking for free coloring pages and you can find them using the links below. I did my research and each of links below offer free coloring pages that you are allowed to print and color for personal use. Now that I’ve said that, I want you to know that almost all of the coloring pages you see on Pinterest and Facebook are stolen. Not all of course, but almost all. Don’t be a party to thieves. Please support the artists and the publishers by paying for your coloring pages when you’re asked to. Otherwise, stick to honestly free sources okay?
This incredible website offers over 1200 free adult coloring pages with varying difficulty levels to choose from. The website is not in English by default, so scroll down to the bottom and click “English Version” in the footer. The pages here are amazing and enough to keep you busy for a lifetime.
This French website offers hundreds of coloring pages that vary in theme and difficulty. The site is not in English and you’ll need a plugin to translate it for you. The pages are all free, but I wonder about licensing issues because many of the coloring pages feature trademarked characters.
