September 2015 Art Crate Review, Giveaway & 20% off Coupon!

Today I’ve got another unique subscription for you. The amazing folks at Art Crate graciously sent me a box to review, a 20% coupon code for you and are sponsoring a giveaway for a free piece of art! For details on entering the giveaway, and info on the coupon code jump down below. Now let’s dish about this sub.

Art Crate sources art from around the world based on your personal style, and sends you a piece each month. Their Curators “understand home decor, from classic styles to contemporary looks. They’ve gone through extensive training and have hands-on experience to know which art, sizes, and colors will look best for your home.”

First you fill out a fun, easy survey then decide what size prints you want (Small, Medium or Large). After, you choose whether you want your art framed; frame options include: Natural, Black, White, or Curators Choice.

This sub is set up to grow your collection at your pace. When you sign up and set up an account, you can log in and pause or resume your subscription as you like. You can also change the size of your art prints at any time.

With a normal sub, the curator will send you an email with 3 pieces they’ve selected and you’ll be able to choose your favorite or let them choose for you. Because this one was for a review, I just filled out the survey and anxiously wondered what the Art Crate folks would send me. Would it be my style? Would they get me? Would it totally clash with my living room?

This box arrived.

Small Size Print in Natural Frame by Tchmo
(Retail: $54.00)
Verdict: Love!
How did they know? They matched my living room colors and taste *exactly*. The frame and art are high quality and I’m thoroughly impressed with what I received.

I have this large frame designed to clip greeting cards that I have been meaning to turn into an art installation and this piece is perfect. I’ve signed myself up so I can get at least another print or two to work with it.
My Wall
If you opt for framing the sub can get a little pricey, but they are excellent quality frames and I do think they are worth the price and comparable to what you’d pay for framed prints. I love that you get artwork from artists around the world that you might not otherwise find.

If you just bought your first home and have empty walls this is a great sub for you. Art Crate doesn’t currently offer gift subscriptions but they are working on it. I really hope they get that up and running because an Art Crate gift subscription would make a great wedding or house warming gift.

What do the walls in your home look like? Bare? Covered in photos? Chock full of art?

Once upon a time, long, long ago, Lisa attended Syracuse University where she studied singing in a giant castle surrounded by ice and snow. After she earned her music degree, she headed to the island of Manhattan, down to the West Village, to a place called the New School. There, she earned another degree in the great art of writing stories for children. She currently works on that same island trying to help real people, while making up stories about imaginary ones. Her first book, “The Ice Maiden’s Tale,” a fairy tale adventure, was released on May 30, 2017 and is up for sale on Amazon. In the meantime, she keeps herself occupied by obsessing over subscription boxes and home renovations.

  1. I had no idea that such a thing as an art subscription even existed! That’s pretty cool. I might look into it, although I could see myself filling up the walls fast.

    • The nice this is you can start or stop it at any time. I have a small apartment so I know I can only get a few pieces, so I figure I’ll just subscribe for a bit and then pause it until I”m ready to redecorate. 🙂 Thanks for reading and good luck in the giveaway!

    • It’s definitely intriguing and when I first heard about it, I didn’t know what to expect but I was thoroughly impressed. Thanks for reading and good luck in the giveaway!

    • I really didn’t expect much when I first signed up, but the survey you fill has various images that you select from so I think it really helps the curators figure out what appeals to you. Thanks for reading and good luck in the giveaway!

  2. I had no idea this even existed! What a wonderful idea for a subscription box. Plus as an artist myself I love that they are showcasing lesser known artists from around the world. Such a great idea!

    • I agree. I love discovering new artists and this sub makes it easy. I’m excited to see what they send me next. Thanks for reading and good luck with the giveaway!

  3. This is pretty cool! I love art! Of course, I have about 30 pieces we’ve bought that are sitting in boxes and not on the wall, but all my smaller pieces are hung up at least!

    • I love the print, not only the style itself but it actually has all the colors I’m using in my living room. It was like it was meant for me. 😉 Good luck int he giveaway and thanks for reading!

  4. I’d love to be considered for the giveaway! I love subscription boxes and I think it’s cool that there is one focused on art.

  5. I stumbled upon your blog, saw the review of Dot & Yoyo, signed up for my first month. Returned to your blog to keep reading your sub reviews…I’m up to Art Crate. I love this idea. I love art and seeing it on other people’s walls but I’m always so indecisive when it comes to my own hangings in turn, I have a lot of empty walls. Something like this sub from Art Crate would really benefit me. THANK you for your very detailed reviews to help us better understand what to expect.

    • Thank you so much. I started this blog because I got addicted to sub boxes and it was so helpful to hear what other people received and their opinions. Thanks for reading and good luck in the giveaway!
