Free first month Adventurous Ink


Are you looking to explore the great outdoors, reconnect with nature and rediscover yourself?
Do you want to spend more time leafing and less time scrolling?
Are you happiest when contemplating your next adventure?

Adventurous Ink makes this easy, with the aid of inspiring writers, photographers and illustrators from the new outdoors movement.

We're so confident you will love it, we'd like you to try it now. For Free!

Each month you will receive a different book or journal from the leading lights of modern outdoor literature. Plus a handwritten letter from our founder, telling the story of the publication and the people behind it.

Free issue for new subscribers

Start living a better life outdoors with a free copy of our August issue, the superb Sidetracked journal.

Inspiring is a word that's often overused, but is bang on the money for this superb journal packed with outstanding writing and photography which vividly illustrate some of the most epic adventures and adventurers on the planet.

For a taste of the calibre of the people contributing to Sidetracked, we caught up with contributing author Gilly Mcarthur in an exclusive interview about how she helps others open up new possibilities for growth in the great outdoors. It's a proper inspiration, naturally.

The subscription

Each month we send subscribers one new book or journal from leading authors, adventurers and independent publishers.

Each publication is worth £10 - £16 averaging at over £25 every 2 months.

The subscription fee is £25 for 2 months, plus £4 post & packing.

There are no contracts, you are free to cancel at anytime. Including before your first payment is due! We are confident you will love Adventurous Ink, so we don't lock you in at any point.

Why do you take payment details up front if it's a free first issue?

This allows for an easy transition into the regular subscription and to cover postage of your free issue. There are no hidden costs, you can cancel anytime.

When will the first payment go out?

On the 2nd day of the month, the month after you subscribe.

So for example, whether you subscribe on the 3rd April or the 25th April, the first renewal payment will go out on the 2nd May.

Can I pay with PayPal?

Yes, we accept PayPal along with credit & debit cards.

What will I get in my subscription?

You will recieve a cardboard envelope, containing this month's issue, plus a handwritten letter from our founder Tim,

This is not a regular 'box scheme'. It is not a clever way of selling you stuff you don't need and wouldn't have bought.

Will it fit through my letterbox?

Yes. We've never had an issue yet that hasn't fitted through a regular sized letterbox. So no annoying trips to the post office.

What if I have already bought a copy elsewhere?

We ship publications as soon as possible after their release date, so it's unlikely you will buy it before we send it out.

But if you already have a copy, we'll send you a refund for that month. You can even keep the publication and gift it on to someone else.

Can I choose how many months I purchase, or how often I pay?


In addition to a rolling 2 month payment plan, Adventurous Ink is available as 4 month, 6 month and 12 month options. You can choose a rolling payment plan, or one-off payments, ideal as a gift for adventurous souls.

Choose your payment frequency from the drop down options.

Can I deliver to someone else?

Yes. Separate billing and shipping addresses are available at checkout, ideal to send as a gift.

Can I cancel my subscription?

Yes, of course, you are free to cancel at any time. If you have paid for future months when you cancel, we'll still send these out to you.

You get what you paid for, simple as that.

I meant to cancel but payment had been made, can I still get a refund?

No problem. Get in touch and we'll refund your payment and cancel your shipments.

What if I change address?

You can update your shipping address anytime online. Or just let us know and we will update it for you.

How long has Adventurous Ink been running?

We started out back in January 2017 and have shipped every single month since.

Our founder Tim (the coffee drinker you just scrolled past) even had the logo tattooed down his forearm. We're THAT committed!
