Q: How much total with shipping in Canadian does one box costAsked by Candy A., November 2020
Hi Candy! If you get the full size box, it would be $65.39 CAD per month!
Q: Not to sound dumb or petty, but where do they ship from? I’ve ordered a few things as of late and they had an address in the us but shipped from elsewhere. Asked by Jennifer H., March 2021
Everything ships from Long Beach, California!
Q: The Inky Box is currently sold out. Is that just for the month of January?Asked by Emily S., December 2020
Yes, subscriptions will open back up for February on January 1st!
Q: Can you purchase past boxes?Asked by Shona F., December 2020
Hi Shona! I don't sell past boxes because I keep any extra inventory for my yearly Mystery Bags!
I really like the Inky box. A thoughtfully curated selection of handlettering tools and accessories. The physical items are great but a nice bonus are the tutorial videos and downloadable practice sheets. Inky box has a great YouTube channel where she demos each item in the monthly box. Super useful for beginners and to explore new products.
I looked at the past boxes (unfortunately after I ordered the first box) and the value is only equivalent or a buck or too cheaper than buying them yourself. I would actually say that it is more expensive once you consider that the seller adds in her own art pieces, such as magnets and lettering practice sheets as part of the cost. If anything these should be bonuses, not ways to make the box look like it costs more than it does. My suggestion is choose another subscription box.
I'm sorry you did not feel that the box was worth it. I do take care to make sure every has a value of at least what you paid for it, but if the practice sheets and cards aren't your thing, you might be better off just buying supplies.
Love this box. All the pens are really fun. And the extras are always so cute.
Thank you Deirdre! So glad you love it!
great pens for lettering. Can't wait to get my next box.
Ordered a three month subscription. Got my first box, never received a second and now they are saying they are preparing my third. No tracking on second package and have ignored my inquiry as to the issue. Bad business but the pens were cool, even though I could have bought them cheaper on Amazon. I like the surprise but if a company can't at least respond or get the product to you then it's a no go. I will be canceling after this review. I WILL BE DEMANDING A REFUND FROM CRATEJOY IF I don't receive both months I paid for without product.
I replied to your inquiry via Cratejoy on the 10th, but maybe it didn’t get to you? I’m so sorry if that’s the case. Tracking shows that both boxes were delivered (you can find the tracking numbers in your shipping emails) but if one of them was not, we can go from there. If you could email me directly just in case emails aren’t being delivered to you through Cratejoy, we’ll get it figured out! Cratejoy won’t let me link my email here but you can find it on the Instagram page or on the actual website. I can also send a screenshot verifying that I did attempt to reply via Cratejoy the day I received your email.
The box was fine. Not horrible and not great. The variety seemed better suited to the mini box as I was expecting a better mix of ink and paper/misc. items. The February box is 90% ink with two note cards. I looked at past boxes before I ordered and based my ordering off of those. I did cancel my subscription as it was not quite what I was expecting. This might just be a personal preference. Going off the reviews, the box is perfect for many people.
I enjoy receiving the box every month, there are always things in there that I never would of known existed. I agree the price is a little high but finding great new tools makes it worth it.
...the sparkly December is such a delight.
This is a lovely subscription. I'm doing a rotation of subscriptions, and enjoyed this one very much.
I never leave reviews, but I will say that this is a box of happiness. I opened it with my friends and they are probably going to be getting this box as well
