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 :)
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.
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.
Received my package just they other day and was impressed with what the 'lite' package had to offer. A good little variety of of products from brands I know and love.
I've been subscribed to the Inky Box Mini for about 4 months and I'm consistently impressed by the variety and accessibility of the products. As a beginner, the explanations on how to use some of the more advanced products and the extras like practice sheets and discounts are super helpful. Occasionally, I'll get a pen colour that I can't see myself using often (e.g. this month's yellow Ecoline brush pen), but this is just part of subscription boxes so I don't mind. Highly recommended!
Seriously, a pad, a brush, a tiny watercolor paint, and a pan...worthless sorry not sorry
Sorry to hear you were disappointed! The boxes are always worth more than you pay for them, but maybe you wanted the full size instead of the Mini. There's lots more in that one.
I ordered an Inky box, but when I received it I got an inky envelope. I am trying one more time and I have contacted the dealers to see why I did not get an inky box. I will post again when all is resolved.
I checked and haven't received any other contact about this issue. It looks like you did subscribe to the Mini, which is the envelope. I'm sending you an email now to see what I can do for you!
So, not all that thrilled. I got several colors of the same pen...it's not what I was expecting, however, I am going to give it one more shot, if I'm still not happy I will cancel my subscription.
Hi Sam! I'm so sorry you were disappointed in your box. I'd love it if you'd send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org letting me know how I can improve the experience!
What a great surprise to come home to! Adore the pens and paper, as well as the local information on where to get more! I am looking forward to more boxes!
Does anyone know the brand of the round watercolor pan palette?
It's by The Nostalgia Collective (@thenostalgiacollective on Instagram)!
I love The Inky Box mini! It is always full of great items and I am never disappointed.
It's like a gift for myself each month. I've been introduced to pens I've never heard of, had hand lettered cards at the ready to send to friends and family, and learned new lettering styles with the practice sheets. For what you pay, you get a lot of value. I highly recommend this as a gift to yourself or someone who loves inky things.
