I still remember how special it would feel to get a brand new box of 64 Crayola crayons just for myself — and that was before Crayola My Way, a super cool new way to create a box of totally custom Crayola crayons. Not only can you personalize the outside of the box with photos and a short message or name, but you can also choose which colors go inside.
Does your child only color with Cornflower blue? Always run out of the metallics first? Love everything purple? No problem. Best birthday gift ever!

It’s super simple to personalize a box of 8, 64, or a big Crayola Art Case using Crayola My Way’s colorful interface by choosing specific colors or color packs with clever names like “Rhythm and Blues” and “Back to the Fuschia.”
If you want to spend a little more, choose from over 50 themes to print on the outside of the box, from Happy Birthday and holiday messages to the First Day of School. You can even upload a picture of your child or one of their favorite pieces of artwork to feature on the front of the box. And, with a name clearly printed on the front in a choice of colors and fonts, there is no mistaking whose crayons are whose.
I can’t imagine a kid who wouldn’t be absolutely thrilled to see their own own artwork and name gracing a box of crayons that feels made just for them. Congrats Crayola — this is a huge win for every adult who has ever scrambled for a gift for the kid who has everything.
Check out Crayola My Way to learn how you can personalize a box of crayons for a special gift for your kids. Note that the smaller box of 8 crayons can only be personalized on the outside; the larger packs allow you to choose colors. There is a minimum order of five on the 8-count boxes, which makes them great stocking stuffers or party favors.
Just heard about this on your podcast and loved the idea but the site link says this is not available and has an email sign up? Any idea if/when it will be back up and running?
We’re checking on this for you, Allie! So sorry—it was working well when we tried it out. Will update you as soon as we know.
Darn! I want to do this but their factory is down, so they can’t even take orders.
Hi Cat, we are checking into this for you. Hoping they get it straightened out very soon.
