I absolutely loved my box this month. It just came today. It’s almost as if they read my mind on the pens selected for me. Can’t wait to try them out. I upgraded 2 months ago from the $30.00 box and am glad I did!! Thank you Truphae for making my day!!!!
I got amazing ink samples from KWZ inks, especially love Sheen Machine 1 & 2. Got an amazing pen Lamy LX Gold &Black which is a great addition to my collection 😊 and got a Claire Fontaine A5 notebook. What is there not to love in this? Everything is great! Thanks, Truphae!
I’ve subscribed at the Penthusiast level for about five months now and have enjoyed the variety of pens and inks. While not every single item has become a favorite, some have been delightful. I use all the pens on a regular basis and I’ve had some good surprises with both pens and inks. I did receive one duplicate pen, which was quickly exchanged for a different one that I enjoy. There was also one pen from a higher-end line which simply was unsatisfactory at any price, and Truphae cheerfully exchanged that for a very good pen from another well-regarded maker, so kudos to them for customer service. The subscription has also offered me the opportunity to try quite a few inks that I would have overlooked otherwise. I’ve enjoyed the novelty and surprise aspects—if that is not your cup of tea, then don’t subscribe, just buy the exact item you want. The subscription does deliver a bit more value than purchasing the items individually, but for me it's all about the fun. I am considering upgrading to the next level.
I received my first Incredible Box ($75 level) and was totally blown away! I received a BEAUTIFUL Kaweco pen. The pen, alone was more than the cost of the box, and I was also given 5 samples of 3 Oysters ink. The pen uses a converter for use of bottled inks, so I have not been able to use the samples yet. I did try them with a glass dip pen and the colors are as represented on the included card, which showed color and name. The colors have deep saturation (of color, not paper) and are welcome additions to my various samples. The samples were numbered, and it was easy to figure out which sample vial coordinated with the colors on the color card. I am very excited to receive my next box!
Iy was good, but I think for the 75.00 box it was ok. I think the 25.00 boxes are better for the money. I basically got the same thing in the bigger box that I would have gotten in the smaller box. But I am still a fan.
