We are a small business based out of Fabulous Las Vegas, NV. We have an awesome Artist Collective that provides us with rad art to fill your boxes every month. The gal who started Art Box Surprise is even an Artist herself! Being based in Las Vegas, we strongly support our local art scene and feature mostly Las Vegas based artists though we do welcome and feature artists from all around the world.
Our mission is simple: We want people around the world to fill their homes and hearts with cool original art made by independent artists while at the same time supporting both our featured artists by buying their works directly and the world's future generations of artists by donating $1/box to our charity partner, P.S. Arts who provides arts education to under served public schools and communities.
What kind of art will I get? We are proud to have Artists of all different ages, skill sets, experience, training, style, and backgrounds in our Artist Collective! Our Artists provide us with a fun selection of art to send out to you every month, it will feel like getting a present from them every time you get a box. You will always get original artwork by independent artists. Sizes, mediums, and quantities of art varies. You could get: a painting, mini sculptures, signed art prints, fiber arts, a drawing, ACEO's/ATC's (artist card editions & originals/artist trading cards), and more! We always send family friendly art (we stay away from sending works that are political/religious/sexual). All the art we send is visual arts for display. Sometimes our artists even include fun free gifts for you! Each time you get your box you get to decide: will you keep the art or spread some more art love and gift it to somebody special. Once you subscribe, just sit back and enjoy supporting the arts!
Can I give a subscription as a gift? Yup! You can gift a monthly subscription or buy one single box. Just fill in their shipping info & mark the "this is a gift" option at checkout, there is also an option to send a personalized message that we will include in the box! You can also simply gift the art you get in your box some months. Gifting made easy peasy, you're welcome! ;)
Do you ship worldwide? Yes! :)
Will I know who made the art that I receive? Yes! We love giving credit where credit is due and you will always know who the artist is that made your cool creations. We also include bios/business cards when available from our artists and post interviews and more on our blog/YouTube/social media so you can get to know our Artists!
What forms of payment do you accept? We gladly accept all major credit cards, PayPal, Bitcoin, & Ethereum! We are excited to announce that in addition to accepting all major credit/debit cards and PayPal through our shopping cart, we are now accepting Bitcoin & Ethereum as well. To pay via Bitcoin/Ethereum, simply email email@example.com and we will send you an invoice with a scannable QR code.
What if the art I get doesn't match my decor/personal taste? That's okay and is to be expected from time to time. We know art is subjective and when that happens we encourage you to spread the art love by gifting the art to someone who would enjoy it. We love encouraging our customers to keep a stash of the art that they get from us as gifts because art is so fun to share and makes such a cool unique gift!
When are subscription boxes sent out? Your first month's box will be sent out shortly after you subscribe & monthly shipments are sent out by the 15th of every month.
What is your return/exchange policy? All monthly subscription sales are final. We encourage gifting any pieces that you may not want to keep for yourself. Art makes a fun gift!
If I subscribe, how long is my subscription for? Can I cancel any time? All subscriptions will auto renew until cancelled. If you pay monthly, your subscription is simply renewed month to month. If you prepay for 3, 6, or 12 months, your subscription is renewed at the end of each prepaid period for the same prepaid period of time. There are no long term commitments and you can cancel at any time (though we hope you won't). If you do cancel and miss us, you can also rejoin at any time - yay! Subscriptions can be cancelled by adjusting your account info or emailing us. If you'd rather not subscribe and prefer to buy just one box, we have options for that too!
