The first 2 out of three I got were sufficient. I wasn't exactly impressed, but it was about what I was expecting (some cheap products straight from Asia I'm assuming). However, my 3rd and last box (June 2021) was very disappointing. There wasn't a single item with ink. It's the INK box, not water color box. If I wanted watercolor, I would have got a watercolor box. And the watercolor products were mediocre at best, including a brush and tiny pallete that seemed extremely cheap to me. It was my final box, so I was pretty let down.

Hi Jean, I'm so sorry you were disappointed with The Inky Box. I assure you that all products that go into it are items from well-known companies within the lettering community. As far as the watercolor box, I only do those once or twice a year to change things up a little. Some people get bored with every box being pens and want to try something a little different. Hopefully I can win you back at some point!

Could've been a bit more interesting.

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.

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!
