I purposely waited until I had received 4-5 boxes before writing this review so I could be comprehensive. I have been very happy and excited every month to get my Inkredible box. My favorites so far have been the Pelikan M405 Pastel Green, the Visconti Mirage Hera, and the Mariora Truphae Limited Edition. Oh, and the sweet little Gold Lamy Safari. In terms of non-pen goodies, the Halloween themed inks were super fun and the notebooks were great to play with. Another great aspect of the box is that is has been able to introduce me to pens I wouldn't have thought of, like the Benu and the Marlen. They only didn't make my favorites list b/c I liked the others so much more. Very happy and will continue to get my monthly box until I run out of space for new pens!
The box was great. Good quality for someone who isn't picky. However, it lacked the customer wants and needs. No ink. Only grid paper. Extra find pens only. I have enough ink to last a lifetime. Mailed box back. I just didn't care for the pen without a converter, lined paper, or more ink.
I brought this box after learning about it for my partner and myself as we share a love for fountain pens and are new to the hobby and thought this would be a fun thing to on box and share. When opening I saw a huge box with Stipula which I hadn't heard about before after open was kinda disappointed a wasn't a colour I requested and was surprised but how heavy it was. However even though I put in my own personal preferences when subscribing my partner LOVED IT and it writes so smoothly no scratchiness to it at all so it was a win, but hey this box was to share with him :D
The 2nd pen was a Monteverde as I opened I let out a gasp and sqwee I was so happy a beautiful purple swirl pen I am very happy I love the weight and the writing has a little bit of feed back I do enjoy.
Lastly was the ink I paid the bit extra for a full bottle and we got a Noodlers Ottoman Rose which is a lovely deep pinky red which I filled my new monteverde with.
Also since I live in Australia the shipping speed was quick only about 5/6 days I was very impressed.
One thing I would like to see added to the box is maybe a hand written thankyou note of who packed the box or who picked the items and why they think I'll love them or something like that. I don't know why but guess with other sub boxes there's always a little sheet or cheat sheet in them or thankyou notes, I just think it might be something to make these expensive boxes just a little more special.
Other than that very happy 10/10
I am, absolutely thrilled with my new monthly “Collectors” subscription box. Inside were 2 amazing writing vessels . One of the Fountain Pens was a Monteverdi beautiful sky blue pen with a fine nib (as I requested) and 2 extra cartridges in not only blue but also black. The other pen was from Stipula and it was steel Blue with a metallic grey marbled body silver hardware(as requested)and again the fine nib. It also came with 5 different colour inks from Noodler in 5ml size containers( love that I get to try colours) .
The retail price of this box was probably around $350 dollars 🤩
If you love pens & ink, then these subscription boxes are a must. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED can’t wait for next box
I did a YouTube video of box .. check it out to see pens
This is a great idea but as others have noted, is a bit of a letdown when it comes to execution. When you sign up, it says to put your preferences. I specified that I would like masculine colors for my pens since I am a man using them in a professional setting. What do I receive? Over several boxes, a meh yellow, a Pale green and a Purple pen. No blues? Dark greens? Blacks? Greys? Browns? White? Requests are ignored and you get whatever is not selling (the undesirable colors).
If you don’t care about these things then this subscription might be more for you. But advertising it to the more discerning pen enthusiast is misleading considering the miss between the sales pitch and the delivery.
I now have 3 pens I would never have bought in 3 colors I absolutely never would have chosen. Complete waste of money.
Had any of the pens I received been like they ones shown in the promo photos, I would probably keep my subscription for the long term.
