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.
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
I expected calligraphy type stuff and got regular art stuff. I don't think I would be confused if it had any inking/lettering items in it other than stationary.
Hi Jessica, I’m so sorry you were disappointed! Most boxes are calligraphy and lettering supplies, but every once in awhile I switch it up with a project-based box. I hope you’ll give The Inky Box another try!
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.
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"! :)
Hands down my favorite box. Every month the Inky Box comes loaded with amazing things and an interesting variety.
I’ve never been disappointed.
Love this box!! Great quality and always the new items I am wanting to try!
I was pleased with the products for the price I paid.
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 !!
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!
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.
Super good supplies, especially for the value! Will definitely be buying again.
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!
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!
Just received my first box and what a happy experience! Love the variety and I'll be using every single item included. ;)
It is so worth having the inky box subscription. It is must have. Love it
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.
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).
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!
