About

The Original Rainbow Crayon Shop

I create colorful Rainbow Crayons™ in over 280+ shapes and sizes. I absolutely love working with recycled and repurposed crayons for my creations. Many people do not realize how labor intensive collecting, peeling, and melting thousands of crayons can be!

My inspiration to begin creating Recycled Rainbow Crayons came from my experiences as an Elementary Art Teacher. It was my first year teaching and I was planning a texture unit with kindergarten around the time of Earth Day. I wanted to find a way to teach my enthusiastic, young artists about being eco-friendly.

The first Rainbow Crayon I created was born in a small, wax cup. Despite the horrible smell as the colorful creations baked and the never-ending work of peeling off wrappers and wax paper, It was round and perfect in so many ways. As 28 students gazed up at me with excitement, I knew this idea was going to take off!

287 Shapes later, I continue to have the opportunity to share these fun and exciting Rainbow Crayons with you. Thank you for supporting a teacher and for being a part of my journey.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

We specialize in Custom Names, party favors, and specialty sets! We have expedited shipping options and a "move my order to the front" option if you need same day creation and shipping. We can usually accommodate for a last minute party if you send us a convo or mention in notes to seller when checking out.

Sizing details

Please read the detailed listing information, especially for Custom Name sets. This will ensure that you are ordering the correct size and scale since many of our Original Rainbow Crayons come in multiple sizes and options.

Wholesale availability

Yes, we wholesale! Please send us a quick convo for our catalog, line sheet, and pricing. We only wholesale to storefronts (no online sales). We have a short wait list currently for wholesale due to popular demand (sorry, no consignment at this time).

Do you run sales?

We usually have some sort of deal, bonus, or sale about once a month via Instagram (@art2theextreme).

Shipping to Warm Climates

We ship via USPS from Indiana. In 10 years, we have not had a single issue with melting or temperature. We safely package our Rainbow Crayons with care, but accidents during shipping (i.e. hot tarmac/postal trucks, weather) can happen. In order for us to accommodate a possible melting claim, please be sure to purchase your listing via USPS Priority mail for quicker shipping and insurance purposes. If your set arrives to you with evidence of temperature change, please contact us within 3 days of delivery (this is crucial for us to file with USPS). Please photograph damage upon receiving your package and any other information you may find useful. This is a very unlikely situation, but we like to be prepared on all ends!

Lost Packages/Non-Delivery

All orders are shipped to the address provided at checkout. Please check out with separate listings for multiple addresses and for correct shipping. Please check the status of your package using the tracking provided by USPS/ETSY. It does take some time for tracking to update. We are not responsible for lost packages that show "delivered" to the address provided. Please contact us within three days of confirmed delivery for assistance in attempting to locate your package. The first step of locating a missing package is with the USPS link here: https://www.usps.com/help/claims.htm and to file with your local post office. On our end, we see the same tracking updates as it shows on your end and once scanned in.

Returned Packages

It is up to the buyer to update the delivery address through Etsy before checking out. If you have moved, please follow up with your local Post Office to ensure that your mail will be forwarded. We are not responsible for forwarded packages.

While we can alter addresses on our end after your order has been placed, we are not responsible for incorrect delivery or returned packages to these addresses. We would be happy to re-ship any returned packages back to you with payment of additional shipping. Refunds for returned packages are granted on a case to case basis and will be refunded less shipping and 10% restocking fee. Please allow 35-40 days for a package to return to us.

Shipping Overages

Summer shipping is automatically Priority Mail Flat Rate. We refund shipping overages over $1. If you have questions about shipping or need an adjustment to accommodate larger orders, please send us a convo!
