Folder Forge

By Stephen Colbran

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.



Coloured Folder Creator is back and bigger than ever. Create exquisite and unique folders for your computer with over 1000 pre-created images.

Using the new creator, you'll now be able to easily edit any of the folders we supply. You can even create your own stunning folders from scratch with simplicity and ease. The Creator uses PDF technologies to deliver a responsive and powerful interface which is enjoyable to use. We took our original concept ("You do not need to be an artist to be able to create beautiful folders.") and created an interface which suits both artists and casual users alike.

Coloured folders are a simplistic, but powerful way to increase your productivity. At some stage, everybody has had a desktop which seems to be bursting at the seams. Finding folders in this sea of files can be a challenge, because they all look exactly the same. Using coloured folders (which can be animals, flags, smilies etc), you will be able to find folders at a glance.

We received many requests from people who wanted to be able to change the icons of existing folders. We have added this option in an easy and accessible way. Simply select the folders in Finder and click on the desired folder in Coloured Folder Creator.

Archived folders emailed to friends will still retain the icon generated by Coloured Folder Creator. Instead of sending your friends plain folders, send them stunning ones.

The Samuco team reads App Store reviews very carefully to ensure any issues with the program are solved. If you are having trouble with the software please send us an email and we will do our best to resolve it.

Very Useful, But Some Features Glitchy & Too Few Standard Options

I deeply appreciate this application. Ever since Mac removed its colored files/folders option, I’ve been dependent on it for organization. I enjoy the wide variety of styles to choose from for folders as well. I recommend it.

I have only two complaints. (1) When you try to change the color of a file you just colored, it removes any design and reverts to standard. You can’t change it again. Sometimes restarting the computer sets the color you intended; other times, there’s nothing you can do to format it besides delete the folder and make a new one…with a different name. (2) While there are many excellent designs; I would be grateful if there were a wider variety of standard colors. What I mean by this is that I’d like folders that look exactly the same as the standard folders, but are colored, and I’d like every color in the rainbow + black, white, and grey options. Or, at least, I’d like simpler black, white, and grey options than the ones that are present. “Glass” versions would be fine. Also, I’d like some more zoomed-in images that actually look like something on small folders, but that’s tertiary.

Thank you for a very useful app.

NIFTY APP version 1.5.3

Great app for customizing those BORING Mac folders. Lots of preset choices and options for making your own folders including putting text on the folder icon itself. Lots of colorful choices for creating your own folders. You can even add your own icons or photos. If this app had an option for batching folders, I’d love it even more. Very easy to use, reasonable at full price, GREAT if you can snag it at 50%! If you’re tired of looking at all those pedestrian blue folders, give this app a try. If this version had a batch option, I’d rate it 5 stars. For now, I’m giving it 4 stars and hoping to see it in the next update.

GREAT VALUE for the Money

Thank you for coming up with a unique way to visually organize my folders. Love the app, easy-to-use, self-explanatory.

Would be nice to have a scroll-bar on the right to scroll all the image folders without enlarging my window. Would also like the ability to go back and re-edit folders that I have created without having to re-create a new folder each time. With that said, I still think it's a great app and those are just minor tweaks which will help improve upon a nice app indeed.

Keep up the good work.
