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.
Preface: I still love Truphae as a company and will continue to shop with them.
I subscribed to the collector box for three months. In the first two boxes I received metal pens. I really don't like metal pens so I emailed customer service to see if there was any possible way to not get metal. Customer service was wonderful to deal with, they we very quick to respond and let me know I could absolutly request not to get metal pens.
I anxiously waited for my new box. When it came I opened it to discover yet another metal pen. I was so disappointed to get the one thing I didn't want. I thought about it a bit and sadly decided to cancel my subscription. Maybe I just happened to sign up during the wrong time. I am only upset that I was sent the one thing I had requested not to receive! I have seen many posts from others of gorgeous colorful pens so I know they exist! Oh well, great idea, just not for those who have material preferences!
I was very excited to subscribe to the top of the line subscription and did not think the product I received matched the intended value. What I received (in my opinion) was a Fountain pen that did not sell and ended up in the monthly subscriber package. I have seen great products on your webpage and would have been happy with a less less costly item and some nice paper or pen pouch. I decided to cancel my subscription because of concerns over what I would receive next. The idea of your package is great, but lacks personalization. Maybe offer subscribers a choice before shipping?
If you decide to change the selection process, I will re-subscribe.
I had been surfing, trying to decide what pen would be best for me. I had not clue. I decided to just go for the collector box and see what happens. I have only received the first box, and am anxiously awaiting the next one. I am so glad I made the decision. I am building my stash of quality pens, and playing with the ink samples. The only change I foresee in the distant future is upgrading to the full ink samples.
For a complete newbie, I think this is the best way to go. I have been enjoying my PF One since I got it, and now understand why so many enjoy writing with fountain pens. If you are wavering, or can't decide what your first pen should be, I say choose the IncredibleBox that you can afford and go for it. You will not be disappointed.
