Since 2007, Nicole has made her colorful mark on the world of art supplies and children’s gifts through her playful collection of Original Rainbow Crayons®. Her designs not only provides a unique gift for any occasion, but takes a creative approach to the fun and functionality of traditional crayons.
Before devoting her work full-time to the crayon business, Nicole drew inspiration for her specialty crayons from her 15+ years of expertise in the arts, with 10 of those years as an Elementary Art teacher. Not only did Nicole teach visual arts from a cart with the extra challenge of going from classroom to classroom, but also saw a need for adaptive art supplies for her growing number of students with special needs and accommodations.
As the first artisan to ever create and sell a handmade crayon online, Nicole’s vision and former side-hustle has developed into a full-time business, bursting at the seams. Nicole made the decision to leave teaching and dedicate herself to the business and her growing family full-time in 2014 and has not looked back since!
Her company has seen continuous growth both on a local and national level. Her work has been featured in major publications such as Food Network Magazine, Midwest Living, Good Housekeeping, US Weekly, and People. Specializing in custom crayon design, Nicole has also created projects for companies such as The Oprah Winfrey Network, Sephora and Marco Polo.
The Art 2 the Extreme® studio is located in Noblesville, Indiana
Cant say enough good things about these letter name crayon sets or this seller. She was accommodating, responsive, and quickly delivered my crayon names for a birthday party deadline. Don't hesitate to order in bulk from her! I will definitely be ordering more in the future for my girls.
This is the perfect gift for an upcoming 2 year old birthday! I'll be ordering these for all of our upcoming birthdays from now on!
Everything about this product and shop is beyond perfect! The quality of professionalism, packaging, and product are exceptional! I ordered three custom name boxes for birthday presents and received all three very quickly. Nicole was always quickly responsive with questions from products to invoices. I definitely will be purchasing more products in the future! Seriously such a great gift idea that's not a wasteful or obnoxious toy or something someone will already have...Very practical and fun!
Love this idea. Giving as a gift for a little one and excited to see her realize that the crayons spell out her name. Received faster than expected and the gift wrapping is such a special touch. I will be ordering again in the future.
Absolutely the sweetest little set of crayons ever. The packaging with her name on it was beyond anything I could or would have expected. Thank you so much for making these, my daughter will LOVE them!
Love! How fun & creative. Ordered a set for my son Aaron. It arrived super fast, and the packaging that they come in, is so beautiful! Thank you!
Recipients of this kid’s birthday gift all go out of their way to thank me and say how special it is! Packaging is super cute too.
Delivered as promised! I sent this gift to clients for their son. It was sent back by USPS and the shop resent the gift at no additional cost to their PO Box. I just thought that was amazing customer service!! Highly recommend this shop.
I loved the finished product! It made our son feel so special. The personalized box and ribbon is adorable! And they provide amazing customer service.
