Since the successful release of our Tactile Coloring Book, we have been overwhelmed by the support and excitement from our wonderful community. In response to your enthusiasm, we wasted no time in working on two exciting initiatives: Tactile Coloring Book Volume 2 and providing free downloads for those who wish to print their own copies using a ViewPlus embosser.
Let’s dive into the exciting details:
1. Tactile Coloring Book Volume 2: Wild Animals – We are thrilled to introduce our latest creation, Tactile Coloring Book: Wild Animals. Just like our first volume, this coloring book features 10 engaging pages, each filled with vibrant and captivating animals such as the peacock, snake, tiger, and more! To purchase your copy of this delightful coloring book (with the option of adding braille-labeled crayons), simply click the button below:
2. Free Download for DIY Printing – For those of you who have access to a ViewPlus embosser and prefer to print the coloring books yourself, we have fantastic news! You can now find download links for both volumes on our Downloads page under the heading “Coloring Books.” Each download is available as a ZIP file containing all 10 pages, provided in both PDF and PRN formats for your convenience.
For detailed instructions on printing ink and braille together using the 2 pass method, we’ve prepared a tutorial video for you! This tutorial will walk you through downloading and printing our coloring book pages, including the process of printing the ink lineart via your ink printer, then embossing over the inked page with your embosser. You can do this as long as you have braille paper, a regular ink printer, and a cut sheet braille embosser!
In this video, we print using the Delta embosser in best mode to get great ink alignment and smooth curves and lines. At this time we have only used the Delta and Rogue Sheet to print our books, so we’re looking for feedback on the process of printing on other embossers! Please note that instructions for loading the page to be embossed will vary depending on the embosser. The Delta is loaded upside down, while the Rogue Sheet is loaded upside down and backwards (with the picture upside down and ink facing away from you). For the Columbia and Rogue Trac, it is only possible to emboss the raised lines (no ink), due to the use of tractor-fed paper.
Additionally, we have a similar tutorial video on printing tactile graphics using the same method. Feel free to check it out here:
For more valuable tutorials on ViewPlus embossers, TSS (Tiger Software Suite), tactile graphics, and much more, we encourage you to visit our YouTube channel. If there’s a specific topic you’d like us to cover in a future video, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
We are truly grateful for your unwavering support and encouragement in our mission to make coloring an inclusive experience for all. We hope you enjoy the Tactile Coloring Book: Wild Animals and take advantage of the DIY printing option.
Thank you for being a part of our community, and we look forward to providing you with more exciting and accessible creations in the future!
