THE GREAT PAINTS: HEROES BOX
All Our Unboxing Articles
This subscription ran for a 12 month period from November 2018 to October 2019, before finishing.
Our heroes have now gone over to the dark side, and the Heroes Box has become the Villains Box! This new monthly subscription box gives some spotlight to the bad guys and also provides an enemy for our Heroines Box divas to fight, since the themes of both these boxes will now match each month.

Why Was There No May Heroes Box?
In April we decided to change the way our subscriptions work. Since we launched in 2017, people subscribed during the month and their first box was shipped on the 27th of the month. Their subscription then renewed automatically on the 7th of the following month.
We decided it would be better for people to receive their box straight away at the beginning of the month, rather than a long delay until it shipped. Receiving it at the beginning of the month would also feel better.
To do this, we had to 'skip' May's box. Instead of renewing on the 7th May, people renewed on the 1st June, and instead of their next box shipping on the 27th May, it shipped between the 2nd - 5th June. We felt like this would be a much better experience for people going forwards and have had great feedback since the change 🙂
