Q: My son is very creative , he is 14 and not a beginner... what art box would be best for him? I don’t see the differences in the boxes.Asked by Kelly M., August 2019
I don't know enough about the kids' pack to advise on that, even though I think it might be too young for your son, but I do get the Petite Pack. I don't have as much time for art as I'd like, so I don't use up supplies very quickly. For me, the Petite Pack has been ideal because otherwise I would get overwhelmed by art supplies. The Petite Pack would be great for a teen trying...
Q: I purchased this subscription last year for my niece and she loved it. If I order it again, will she receive the same materials or will there be different art supplies this time around?Asked by Regina M., October 2021
The boxes are different every time.
Q: I got my first petite palette full pack today, but I did not get the card with instructions and can’t figure out how to find the video. I’m lost on what to do with these supplies.Asked by Melissa R., June 2021
The "card" is online. Look for the link at the top of our website that says "This Month's Box."
You can also find our videos for the current box and past boxes on our Youtube channel.
Q: I received my first box today, February 1, 2021, but the box is marked “February 2020”. I hope I didn’t get some leftover box that has been lying around for a year!Asked by Natasha B., February 2021
Perhaps look at some reviews to compare if it’s the same.
The watercolor markers seem to be good quality. The colors are vibrant. A bit of a learning curve on how to work with them but they are versatile with how they can be applied. The box also came with a nice pad of watercolor paper.
I am so happy with this box! I loved everything so much. Well put together, excellent quality, very helpful to get back at the art thing. My only rating below 5 star was for shipping, for me in Canada it was pricy and timely.
Very disappointed! Bought this box for our daughter (as a birthday gift) with the intent of continuing the subscription. Compared to other subscriptions that we've done, the value wasn't there. I felt like we could've gone to our local craft store and bought the same items for less money.
I am sorry you didn't like this month's Petite Pack. This box only had two watercolor tubes because this time we went with a really high end and more expensive artist watercolor and brush. The retail price on the box was $49.53. Please reach out if you have further questions or concerns.
Love the metallic paints. Been trying them out.
It was really good . I liked what I received.
I bought this for my teen who has taken 3 years of art. There was so much in the box!! Supplies are well worth the price, copiac markers in our set and good quality paper. We have now ordered 3 month subscription. Looking forward to creating new art pieces with supplies. Satisfied momma.
First of all, the customer service is terrible. I sent a message, and it took them couple weeks to replay back to me..
And the products we've received are not worth of what we pay for.
I can just go get them at a craft store for a lot better price.
Overall, I would not recommend this site to anyone.
We apologize for the lack of reply. Your message was filtered as spam. In regards to your other feedback, we are sorry you didn't find value in your first box. The MSRP for that box was $39.59 and included items that are not currently available in stores. That being said, we understand that some items might be priced more cheaply at another store. You might be happier with the Premier Pack or buying past boxes in our store where there isn't the surprise about what is in the box.
Don't bother. You're lucky if the box even arrives.
Per our email exchange, your box did arrive on time. Cratejoy is a marketplace for multiple companies. You ordered from three different companies. We are Paletteful Packs and have no relation to Craftsman or Artful. We are all selling subscriptions through the Cratejoy marketplace, but are all independent companies. Please address your concerns regarding your missing boxes to Craftsman and/or Artful.
I loved the cards, I can definitely use them with other art I do. The larger pens were not my favorite. I just don't use pink and blue that much. I felt like I was supposed to send out baby shower cards. The orange and red were more like my choices. Anything I don't use will get passed on to friends.
Great customer service, a fun box for anyone who already enjoys art work and free hand projects.
Sorry you didn't like the box and for our lack of reply. Sometimes, emails sent through Cratejoy get filtered. You are correct, we do not do a set project with our boxes. We give information about the materials on our site and provide prompts for inspiration. The Premier Pack also has a demo video on our YouTube channel.
For further inspiration, you may also want to look at #palettefulpacks on Instagram.
We will reach out to you about your subscription and if you want to cancel and refund any remaining boxes.
