I though this monthly pen box was the greatest thing known to man besides the lightbulb. But after 7 or eight of these boxes over the course of a year I started getting duplicates and it’s such a hassle to have to ask for a return slip, put it on a package, wait for it to get to the HQ, wait for the HQ to ship out a replacement, etc, etc. Dont get me wrong though, I love this company, I just think that a good way to avoid duplicates is to implement a system with each subscriber where a “rap sheet” of the pens the person got in the past are accounted for thus illuminating duplicates. (If anyone from Truphae is reading this email me I’d love to elaborate)
I got several samples of ink and loved them all and a wonderful fountain pen which is top notch in quality. I can't wait for the next box!
I was impressed with how quickly my first subscription box was shipped out. I wasn't particularly impressed with the choice of pen and inks and think it was not a great value for money for me. I acknowledge that some of it is a matter of personal choice and would like to see my next couple of boxes to make up my mind on whether this subscription meets my needs.
Just received this month's Ink-credible box and all I can say is WOW!! This is another pen I've been eyeing and now I own it thanks to Truphae. I can't wait to use it along with the amazing ink I received. You folks go above and beyond each month; I am never disappointed. I am already looking forward to October's box!
I have been receiving the Collector boxes for several months now and am thrilled with the results. I am newer to fountain pens and every pen I have received has been a different brand with unique and interesting qualities. In particular, the LAMY 2000 pen has become a new favorite and an every-day carry for me. And the Montegrappa Elmo pen is just gorgeous. Customer service always responds quickly whenever I have a question. Each box is also a great value -- I can't wait for the next one!
