I subscribed for 3months. My first box is is a welcome box and I received 1 orange fountain pen , 5 sample ink refills , 1 HB wood pencil, 1 Notebook made in Japan and 1 HUGE paperclip along with Cute deer stickers ...
the shipping was on time and spot on communication regarding when my first box would ship.
Looking forward to receiving future shipments .. I will definitely post pictures and more detailed review . I’m keeping this review very basic as it is the first box of this type [pen, stationary, paper etc] for me. Nice price ...averages a little less than $14 for the box .
So far I definitely recommend giving this box a try !
I'm not sure what I was expecting to get, but what arrived was interesting.
What arrived were: A couple of small notebooks, one HB pencil, one Graphite pencil (I think it's graphite), two Fountain Pens, two ink cartridges, and an ink sample vial.
Best items: The two pens. I'm fond of "hooded nib" pens, so to find TWO in this box is awesome.
Item I might not use: The pencil that I assume is a graphite drawing pencil. I have an artist friend who may appreciate it more than I.
Did they pick this box especially for me?! I am in LOVE! The thin fountain pen is like nothing I've ever seen, and I've been collecting fountain pens for over twenty years. I adore how it writes. Combined with the glitter ink and fun papers, just so cool! The other pen and button, along with the personalized notes, just really made my day before I headed into my first meeting about cancer. LOVE!
I love my box! I got a mini and it was great! I got a awesome maple wood fountain pen and ink, I got stickers, a journal and another marker that doubled as a highlighter which I already have, but at least I know they have good taste! The only problem I had was shipping. I accidentally ordered a day late and got the next box. They don’t tell you the right dates in there so make sure to buy yours at the beginning of the month. I can’t wait for my next box!
I have just received my first box and can't wait for my next one. Great costumer service.
For $15 bucks or so, you can buy a couple cheap fountain pens online... but you definitely won’t get something as nice as what I found in my first box! The wood fountain pen is beautiful, though the weighting seems a little off to me. The extras and the ink I haven’t tried yet, but they also look great. This box was worth it just for the pen! I’m looking forward to my next box!
I just got my first box, and it is ridiculously adorable. A pug fountain pen? Puppy sticky notes? Thank you so much for putting together this box!
I loved the supplies that came in this box! The notebook is a tad small, but I appreciate the italic nib fountain pen, as well as the ink sample, brush pens, and thank you note!
Great personalized customer service and quick shipping and follow up! Loved my first order!
I have been eagerly awaiting the November box and I was not disappointed! This is above and beyond what I expected, the pens (two!) are lovely and the sketchbook is quality. Along with all the little extras I will definitely be renewing this subscription. Thank you Saturated Ink.
I've loved fountain pens for years, but I've never known about high-quality (yet affordable) pens and to-die-for inks. Each month, tucked in with the other goodies, are a couple of cute vials with ink samples from pricey brands. I get to try several colors of a brand of ink I would never have the budget to try otherwise (this month, Monteverde, I priced it at $8 a bottle!). Every month is a fun surprise, packaged beautifully. Love love love this box!
It is the end of the month and my 2nd box never showed up. I sent a message to the seller nearly 2 weeks ago and have received no response. There is tracking information for the 2nd box from early September but it was never dropped off with the shipping company, so it hasn't moved since September 4th. I see it is now listed as out of stock, does that mean there wasn't enough stock for everyone with an active subscription?
The quality is okay. But not worth $50 for one pen, 2 notebooks, and a pencil. (Since I only received 1 shipment)
This box brought back so many wonderful school memories. I learned how to write cursive using fountain pens in grade school. This box did not disappoint. The fountain pens will add a new dimension to my journal writing. Eagerly waiting for my next box.
My first shipment. I think I'm going to like this subscription!
Nice, slimline Jinhao fountain pen and loved the sample of ink too. They went together well. Handy notebook too! Good quality and value! Nice suggestions too!
This box is a great way to test out fountain pens & sample diff kind of inks. It’s also of the most affordable ways to do so. These pens are not über high quality (read: expensive), but that’s not the way to learn how to use, store, treat, fountain pens. I love that each month includes *samples* of diff brands & colours of inks, & there’s always another great product- paper, an extra pen (fountain & other)... definitely worth the $15/ month.
I received my box today and really like the Italian fountain pen nib which really writes very nice. I adore the pocket size lined paper booklet to write my notes and thoughts in. The sample of ink will be used for my vintage nibs to dip in. The two brush art markers is a really nice additional to use for color for my writing projects. I am looking forward in receiving my monthly pen boxes.
I had a 3 month plan. Loved all 3 boxes.
Tho, the 3rd box, the ink had leaked.
I don't really hold this against the service tho, we all know how rough the mail can get handled sometimes. Maybe put the bottles of ink in a little baggy for shipping in case it leaks?
But otherwise, I love the pens. I love the little cute extras. The boxes were great :3
Absolutely thrilled with this month’s box. The felt carrying kit is perfect for all my new pens!
