1st delivery, long awaited....Box arrived open and only 1 bottle ink 😓 Everything seems to have fallen out en-route sad 16yr old today 😓

My first box from the Artful subscription is the Tombow one and love the pens and can see how much has gone into creating the accompanying magazine. The magazine tutorial for using the pens to create the fox was also very good but having done that, I really wanted to learn more about the calligraphy side - creating the letter shapes - which is where I stumbled. It seems to assume that I know how to draw freehand letters - but I struggled with this and ended up having to draw out horizontal practice lines just to get me started with controlling the thin and thick lines that the pens are capable of. Drawing the pencil lines was tedious, so it would have been useful to have a pad of paper with pre-drawn lines for novices to calligraphy such as I to practice on. I also feel the tutorials have missed this step of creating the lettering where I needed more guidance and so I rather lost interest and haven't opened the box since my first attempts. I was hoping for more help in the 2nd on-line tutorial but again it assumes I know how to do the lettering. Perhaps I have missed a box which dealt with calligraphy, or I am expecting too much of the tutorials, or I have assumed that we don't need any prior skills in order to make more use of the subscription. I have to say that I am a bit disappointed but will see what is in the next box before I decide whether to unsubscribe.
Hi Karen, Thank you for your feedback. We appreciate our subscribers taking the time to give their honest options on boxes received. This enables us as a team, to know what products are appealing to our audience and what is not working as well. Your feedback has been taken on board and will be passed onto our creative team for further consideration on future box curation. Thank you, The Artful team
I bought two subscriptions and the first boxes were amazing. The second box one was perfect the other missing half the items. I have contacted artful with no reply and tried calling but they have an outgoing message saying they are not taking calls. Really poor after sales customer service detracts from just brilliant concept and quality of first boxes! I hope they respond soon as both were gift subscriptions for Christmas and is a really poor show!
I love this subscription box, it's the only one that I've stuck with since lockdown, it's the only one that I really think is worth the money you pay.
Overpriced and underwhelming. Other subscription boxes offer far greater value and products. Artful's justification for their inflated price is the lengthy magazine included so if you're after an expensive art mag subscription then maybe this is for you. They also sell this as having access to skill share and online tutorial videos- after searching high and low and even emailing to ask how to access skillshare I received no answer. The YouTube videos consist of 3 5min videos so again hardly justified.
Hello Bethany, Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. All feedback is really important to us and we also appreciate you contacting us directly, with more in depth detail on you concerns over the contents and it's value. The 3 months free trial to Skillshare was exclusive to edition one, this was the first box available back in March 2020. The team work extremely hard on each box to ensure subscribers received a variety of high valued art supplies, along with a very detailed magazine. Within the price paid, subscribers also have access to online monthly tutorials, to help build confidence and skills with the suppliers within the boxes. Once again, we appreciate all your feedback and it has been passed onto the team for further review. If there is anything we can assist with in the meantime, please don't hesitate to contact us on Kind regards, The Artful Team
