Do you have a Heidi Swap Lightbox? I do! I bought one at one incredible price over at Michael's Craft Store. The price of this is usually around $60.00 dollars and I got mine for $20.00 on promotion. I wasn't originally going to buy one because I didn't imagine me actually using it however, I do love the fact that you can customize it with your own words. It lights up to give your words some extra pop and there are endless of places you can use this. I have been seeing bloggers all over using this product and had to try it for myself.
Within the package, you get the lightbox and well just the light box. Where are the letters? That is the number one question I had heard about this product and they are not wrong. It didn't come with any letters to make your words. Yet is does give you the impression that it does on the packaging. All you really get is an example of the what the letters would have looked like if it was in the package. You probably have guessed already, unfortunately, you do have to buy the letters separately.
I completely understand what the company was going for, you get to choose which letters you can put in it with all the different options out there in this brand but is would have been nice to at least have it come with basic lettering and then give us the option of buying other fonts. I find the lightbox to be a little expensive to not have letters come with it. If is wasn't for the huge deal that I got it for, I honestly wouldn't have bought it.
At least the pack of 50 letters prices is not too bad, around $8.00
(you totally use a coupon for that at Michaels).
Overall, this product is pretty cool. It is completely in your hands on what you want to say. The size is a little bigger than a magazine so you will have to make some space for it. I know that this will be going up in my home office or even in my future craft room. For now, it will stay up in my closet dresser sharing kind uplifting words to my days. Love it!
