This is my first box and I am impressed with the quality of the items. The paint dot samples are very pigmented colours and I love that a full 6x8 15 sheet Strathmore mixed media pad was included.
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.
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!
