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.
Hands down my favorite box. Every month the Inky Box comes loaded with amazing things and an interesting variety.
I’ve never been disappointed.
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.
...the sparkly December is such a delight.
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 inky box is very much a high-quality box and matches its price. Every piece was beautiful, but overall the box is a bit pricey if you like to subscribe to more than one monthly box. Good JOB "The Inky Box"! :)
I absolutely love this box, but I've missed out on receiving it for 2 months now because it says that subscription is sold-out and not taking orders!! Please let me know if there's anyway that I can order !!
This box was awesome. I was upset because my local post office lost it. But now I know why I may be ordering again really soon. I was just testing out subscriptions but I like this one.
I count down the days for it every month!! Sara is also open to suggestions, so if you want to try something, never hurts to let her know!
It is so worth having the inky box subscription. It is must have. Love it
First, Sarah is amazing! I had a mix up with my purchase and she was able to work with me to get me my first box figured out. Very accommodating and great customer service. I have received two boxes so far and have loved both. I love the handwritten personalized name on the boxes. I am very new to lettering and all, but they include all the products to get started, so I don’t have to go out to buy anything to try it out. (ie. march box came with the watercolor, a brush, and paper to use; april box had the perfect perals brush and two glitter colors).
Every month I gleefully wait for my next InkyBox! I love to try new products and having a variety of things on hand when I'm working on a project. The Inky Box has introduced me to so many great products I wouldn't have heard about otherwise, and I love that I can get a taste before going whole hog and buying an entire set of something.
This box is such a great deal! And the practice downloadable sheets are one of my favorite things about this box! I am new to calligraphy but I think this is a great investment!
I recently received my first box and was not disappointed! I enjoyed the surprise of not knowing what would be inside and the products were great. She includes a nice sheet itemizing the contents of the box and their value, so you know you're getting your money's worth. Everything in the box can be used immediately. Nothing in it requires a different tool, which makes this great for beginners (you can also use these items with different tools if you have them). As a new letterer, I've loved trying out new tools I haven't used before, and being able to benefit from Sarah's experience because she only includes things she really likes.
This present I give myself every month is the best! Each month there is something new and exciting for my to use to fort her my lettering journey. I also love the prints from guest artists...but treating myself, I support artists. This really is the best and totally worth subscribing.
I received my first Inky Box today and loved it! It was loaded with pens, ink, nibs, and a few other items. Just when I thought I was finished finding items, I would look under the packing materials and find something else! This seems like a great box! I can't wait for next month!
I love that this box is made by a hand letterer for hand letterers. It gives me a chance to try supplies that I have been eyeing and also things that I would have never thought to try. Every month prints are included from popular lettering artists and they've all been super cute. She has recently lowered the price on shipping so now it's even more affordable! It's like Christmas every month when I get this box :)
Super good supplies, especially for the value! Will definitely be buying again.
Just received my first box and what a happy experience! Love the variety and I'll be using every single item included. ;)
I've subscribed to five or six art boxes over the past year, but this box is absolutely a must-have. I canceled the others to keep The Inky Box. Every box contains a detailed list of the contents and the retail values -- not only is the retail value much higher than the cost of the box, but I'm trying brands and types of pens, markers, paints, brushes that I would never have heard of. The members-only Facebook group is a fabulous community with tons of inspiration and help. My lettering game has gotten better in the past four months of Inky Box than in the previous two years of practice. I'm a total fan!
I really like the Ink Box mini! I am able to try products that I normally wouldn’t buy. I’m thinking about upgrading to the bigger box.
I absolutely love the Inky Box and count down the days until the next! I practically do back flips whenever there are new watercolors inside. Thanks, Sara!!
I literally stalk the tracking info for my Inky Box each month because I can’t wait to see what’s in it! Sarah does a great job curating and including classic favorites along with new stuff that I’m always dying to try.
I love the Inky Box. I love stationery in general. Paper, pens, notebooks, art supplies, stickers. I've subscribed to many boxes. This one is my FAVOURITE! It's a few amazing products, and each month is different. I've found a couple all time favourite products through this box. Items I have never heard of (maybe because I'm in Canada). I'm always excited to tear into this box and see what I have to play with. Easy five stars!
The foil and glue from the 2019 April box were great, but the other two items were just pens. I personally didn't feel like it was worth the price, but it was a good box regardless.
