All the pens have black ink which I can’t use at work. The pens are ok but blue ink is better for me next time. Thank you
I subscribed to the three month pen box only. Paid a total of 49 dollars. I love the envelopes with snaps that are sent with the pens each month. Almost all of the pens are ones I really enjoy using (I’m a nurse so yes- I’m a pen snob). I do wish there were some more diverse variety of pens offered- such as double tip pens with different color inks or highlighters on each end. I did receive one fountain pen in my last shipment, but it came with only one vial of ink- and in green. Not the most useful color! I would describe most pens as “great pen” as opposed to “my new favorite”.
If I could give this a three and a half stars, I would. Overall, the package was beautiful but there was some small problems that really took away from the experience. For instance, the lettering on the pencil holder was messed up, and my package was delivered late. While I do think that the products delivered in the box are beautiful, I found it a bit difficult to justify the price for what it is. I got an assortment of pens, four packs of Post-Its, a daily planner pad, a capsule wardrobe planner, and a larger planner pad. While the products feel high quality, I was expecting more of an assortment to satisfy my needs. I also felt that the inclusion of the capsule wardrobe sheets was a bit of a throwaway item for me, because I know the idea of it does not fit into my lifestyle. This may have also been a problem for other users, but customizing specific things like that would go a long way when it comes down to overall customer experience. While I will continue to be subscribed to the Penspiration box, I am cancelling the Stationery one. It just doesn't speak to my needs, high-standards, and budget.
I love the pens I received in my January box. I got 7, so that works out to be roughly $2.70 a pen.
It was my first time getting both subscriptions and I'm really happy with the content.
The only reason why I'm giving 4 stars is because I got the same pen twice (different color), but it's a really nice brass pen so I can't complain:)
Timely shipping, and good quality pens!
Love this box that arrived in the mail today.
So glad to hear that you are loving the January box! Thank you so much for your kind words and for your support! :-)
I received my first pen subscription box today. I received 6 writing utensils: 1-purple highlighter, 1-purple fine point pen, 1-fine tip felt purple pen, 1-fine tip blue pen, and 2 fine tip black pens. I liked the box and will keep and use all items. I feel it was worth $18 and will continue the subscription. If I had one complaint it would be that they were all fine tip pens. It would have been nice to have more variety, but the colors were nice and the quality was good. Looking forward to my next box.
Just received my first box, and I am pretty pleased. The quality of the pens are great! I just feel like the variety could've been a little better with only 5 pens in the box. There were two Tombow brand pens and three of the five pens had black ink. I will definitely be keeping the subscription for the time being.
Nicely done! Looking forward to receiving the next box!
