The theme: Coloring books generally have a theme of sorts. It might be that they are based on a Disney movie, or it is about animals, or vehicles, or something else. When selecting books for your children, remember that they will want to express their creativity, and will have a lot of fun with any coloring book, but will be more interested in a coloring booklet with a theme that appeals to them. Choose a color book that features their favorite characters, or the item of interest in their life. For example, if your little boy just loves trains, get a Thomas the Train coloring book. If your little girl is as girly as they come, look for the Disney Princess coloring book, or possibly Strawberry Shortcake.

Color printing is the reproduction of the written word and images in the form of color impressions, which can either be used for a full page or for partial design. It involves separation of different primary color pigments that can be added or deducted to give an impression of other hidden hues. In order to give rise to a neutral color, the process requires the addition of the primary hues in predetermined quantities. The most common use of this technology is in the industrial sector, especially in the print media, where countless impressions must be made in graphical representation to arrive at a preset format of mass reproduction to be used daily.
