How to Create an Adult Coloring Book Using PLR Posters – Tools For Motivation

How to Create an Adult Coloring Book Using PLR Posters

In the past few years adult coloring books have really exploded onto the scene. It might not be as popular a trend as last year, when Amazon’s best selling list was littered with them, but these books are still selling 100’s of thousands of copies.

Here at ToolsForMotivation, the trend caught our eye because it really goes hand in hand with self-help content.

Adult coloring books have many reported benefits, including:

  • Can provide a similar mind state as meditation
  • Potentially lowers stress levels
  • Quells negative thinking
  • Helps you mindfully focus yourself in the present
  • Can help you disconnect from technology
  • Can help boost creativity and even help break through writer’s block
  • Can help remind you of simpler, happier times
  • Etc…

As a provider that offers self-help content, it would seem like a coloring book would be a perfect fit, right?

Justin and I batted around some ideas last year about doing a coloring book offer, but it was actually a great member of ours that gave us a better idea.

Instead of just “giving you a fish”, we might as well “teach you how to fish”.

This tutorial will show you how to take the posters we include with every product and bundle (this means we release 20 of these posters each and every week!) and transform them into a coloring book!

A couple of notes:

  • This is my first voice over video, so go easy on me.
  • You may want to turn down the bass on your speakers so you aren’t overwhelmed by my Barry White-esque dulcet tones.
  • On a more serious note, this process can also be done with images (to varying degrees of success, so your mileage may vary). If you want to bridge out from just our posters, you could use your own photos or pics from
  • Below the video you will find a link to download 3 of our posters so you can test this process yourself.



*Click on the above posters and they will open in a new tab.  Just right click and “save as” on the full size poster to download.

    Thanks for the great tip. The last couple of days I have been toying with adding a coloring page or image to a small planner along with motivational type tips. This will be a big help with getting it all together.

    1. Justin.Popovic says:

      Glad you liked the tutorial Sharan! Ted did a great job putting it together and the idea is quite unique for PLR implementation 🙂

    2. ted.payne says:

      That’s a wonderful idea Sharan, glad you got some use out of the tutorial 🙂

  2. Paul Tipping says:

    What a great tutorial!
    Just right, informative and to the point.
    Had not seen pixlr before so this is very useful.

    1. Justin.Popovic says:

      Thanks Paul… Ted did a great job here and I’m glad to hear that learning about Pixlr + PLR will be helpful for you in your biz 🙂

    2. ted.payne says:

      Yeah pixlr is a great tool, it can’t replace something like Photoshop but for basic edits its awesome.

  3. liz lima says:

    Excellent video! Thank you for sharing. Could you share some tips on how you would then use this tool? Would it be a lead magnet?

    1. Justin.Popovic says:

      Thank Liz! Yes absolutely… could use as…

      – Lead Magnet
      – Free content to publish on your blog
      – Extra content to enhance an ebook that you sell
      – Bonus content as part of a larger package/promotion

      Because our posters are “web publishable” (meaning you can freely publish them anywhere), you can really use this for any marketing idea you see fit!

      1. liz lima says:

        Thank you so much! 🙂

  4. Thanks for such a great idea! Never would have thought about that 🙂 Ted you did great for a first- time voice-over, look forward to listening to more! Have more ideas to experiment on now!

    1. Justin.Popovic says:

      Thanks Valerie. Glad you liked it and good luck putting the ideas into action 🙂

    2. ted.payne says:

      Thanks so much, it went much easier than I expected, but there is a bit of a learning curve. I plan on putting out a lot more as I grow more comfortable.

  5. Ian McLaren says:

    Really enjoyed your tutorial Ted.
    Clearly explained with all the navigation prompts well timed
    to avoid “chasing the cursor round the screen”

    Re; the “Barry White-esque dulcet tones”
    Maybe you could finish with a song 😉
    What a USP –
    “Barry White ~ My First, My Last, My Everything”

    1. Justin.Popovic says:

      Thanks for the positive feedback Ian! I agree, Ted did a great job (y)

    2. ted.payne says:

      hahahaha I think my singing may scare some viewers off. Thanks a lot for the nice comment though – my next goal is to figure out how to highlight the cursor!

  6. TODD says:

    Another awesome tutorial! You guys make a great team.

    Ted, I loved the Barry White-like music in the background. I followed and completed my first one in minutes. Now I have a job for my college student daughter. 🙂

    You guys are awesome!

    1. Justin.Popovic says:

      Hey Todd… That is awesome! My son has been asking for some assignments to help with the business I’m totally getting him to do the same thing!

    2. ted.payne says:

      Awesome Todd! I was surprised by how simple the process was. I tried using some photographs from as well, and they didn’t come out as clean as the posters. There is a lot more “noise” in a photo after all. I think depending on the photo, it could work though!

  7. Shona says:

    Really great idea Todd. Would never have thought of it. It has given me inspiration to create different things. Todd, you also did very well on your presentation. Keep it up.

  8. Shona says:

    Sorry Ted,
    I called you Todd. It was the name from the previous comment.

    1. Justin.Popovic says:

      I kinda like it! Todd is the new Ted? LOL… not sure Ted will go for that but I’ll give it a whirl this week!

      In all seriousness, I’m glad this gave you a new idea to test out. Definitely a unique spin on something that can drum up new leads/sales!

  9. Excellent tutorial! This will help me to make inspiring adult coloring books for trauma survivors! Thank you.

    1. Justin.Popovic says:

      Glad you liked it Tonya thank you for your comment 🙂

  10. Deni says:

    This was amazing! No idea. It was a bit fast, and I was taking notes. Would LOVE to have the steps in a checklist. Is that possible? Thanks SO much!

    1. ted.payne says:

      Hey Deni, Thanks so much for checking the video out. Let me work on a checklist and I will add to the post this week.

  11. Suzanne says:

    What a great and innovative way to use the posters!

    Great tutorial, Ted, and thanks for making it so easy to follow. I have already used those three posters you guys posted and made the modifications! Even if I did nothing else with them, my daughter and I could color together!

    Thanks again, Ted and Justin!

  14. Fran Watson says:

    I finally sat down to do this today (okay almost a year since I first commented) and it was easy to do!!! I actually did several while listening to the video over and over, then I got doing it without the video and I DID IT!!

    1. Justin.Popovic says:

      Awesome Fran! Way to go… glad you got this one working!

  15. Traudl Wöhlke says:

    Unfortunatelly Pixlr has changed, and I cannot apply the instructions of your video.

    1. Justin.Popovic says:

      Sorry about that Traudl, we will look into getting the tutorial updated!
