I purchased a gift subscription for my daughter a year ago and she has asked for it again for her birthday. Each box that we have received has given her the opportunity to try out a medium she has never used before and converter her into loving charcoal (Sketchbox introduced her to it) and using ink vs. pencil. There have been a couple months where one or two things were not of interest to her, but there was always something in the box that allowed her to explore her love of art.
I received my first box and absolutely loved it! I like trying new things, and this box did not disappoint!
I just ordered my first box, actually for my daughter. I was having difficulty with my order and contacted SketchBox and was so pleased that they responded right away. I then had several questions that were just as promptly and kindly addressed.
They were kind, prompt, respectful and very helpful. SketchBox focuses on being committed to ensuring customers are pleased and their purchasing "needs"/desires are met. I can say that I will be pleased to continue to use their service and recommend to others.
I'm so delighted when I receive my sketch box every month. It's totally worth the money. I sprang for the premium box and I have yet to be unhappy with it. I wish I had more time to utilize all the fun stuff we get, but currently with work, school and other commitments my creative outlet has been diminished. This box sparks a little creative juice in me every month that I manage to get a little ATC done with some of the spiffy items.
Lots of fun !!Great surprises.
I got this subscription for my tween artist daughter. She looks forward to it every month and loves trying new products and mediums for sketching and drawing! Great box - highly recommended.
I just received my first sketch box, and I love it!! The contents of the box are all top quality products that I can use with my artwork.
I got this subscription last year and have loved everything I have received.
Each box inspires me to try something new...or to return to a medium I haven't used in a long time. Looking forward to my next surprise!
It was great can't wait to try them out :)
Despite announcements to the effect that my box has arrived, the opposite is true. I am so looking forward to finding what useful tools it contains. I'm sure it will be here soon. I certainly let you know by the first of the month which by the way is tomorrow,if it doesn't appear. Jan
Hurray! The sketchbox arrived in the afternoon mail! I am so pleased with it,can't wait to get started! Jan
I ordered the July Premimum sketch box and while I like it and the items are great, I don't feel it's very premium. I feel as if I would have ordered the normal box I would have received around the same type of items.
One graphite stick was broken and all liquid inks bleed through the pages of the sketch book
All it was is a lot of paper stuffing and some different sepia pens with some subpar black pens. Nothing to actually make anytbimg with. A well of liquid ink too and a brush... if i could give it less stars i would.
I somehow had two boxes for the same month ordered, so before they arrived I emailed to ask them to only send one, I had no use for two. They sent both, charged me for two and made me send the unopened extra box back. They were very rude to me and not only did I have to pay to send it back, they tried to charge me an extra restocking fee.
Customer was fully refunded for the erroneously ordered box as requested. We requested the unopened box be sent back so we could have it for another artist. Customer was never charged a restocking fee.
Jon was very rude when I asked if I could use a coupon code. He assumed I was trying to pull a fast one. I will never do business with these people and I will definitely recommend no one else does either.
So sorry if you mistook my humor for being rude. We keep a close eye on our coupon codes and have never offered a free box promotion.
Well - I got the standard box. Contents were okay except for sticker that was squished. Pens were for painting. Not sure what I expected but it wasn't this. However - I will give it another few months.
I'm disappointed as this was my 5 box from Sketchbox, all which have been the 'basic" box. I am not sure what I was sent but it was not the products they are showing for the month of July. I am truly disappointed as I was looking forward to this art box. This is the only one that was shipped correctly.
I was highly disappointed in this company. Our first box was received late through the fault of the carrier this company uses. We were not happy with the contents (only 3 items and very overpriced) so wanted to cancel. Because we received it late, we could not cancel by the first of the month cutoff date so we are being charged for a second box. Company has been unsupportive and inflexible. Would not recommend.
