Bulk Hexie Paper Piecing Templates

As you may have seen a few weeks ago, I added 1-inch card stock hexie templates to my shop. I quickly sold out and was immediately getting messages, emails, etc. from people wanting to place custom orders for bulk amounts of hexies (500 to 1,000). Needless to say, since I'm only one person hand punching each individual hexie, doing an order over 500 takes some time and effort.





As of yesterday I discussed with my husband just how much time and effort will be put into the paper pieces, which initially were being sold just to make some extra cash for us. So some changes are being made and I wanted to detail them here for you incase anyone has questions or concerns.

  • Ready-to-ship packages will be added to the shop on a weekly or bi-weekly basis IF the previous stock sells out. This will be the "shop restock day". Once these sell out, you'll have to wait for the next restock to purchase.*Prior to this I was selling them THEN punching & shipping.... the new way will be much better! Your orders can ship immediately :)
  • I was using 60 weight card stock, I'm now using 110 weight. It's sturdier and better quality for paper piecing (especially for re-using the pieces) but it also makes everything a little more expensive. The new cost will be $2.50 for 100 pieces without hole, and $3.50 for 100 pieces with hole in the middle - still cheaper than many of my competitors.
  • Shipping rates will slightly increase - the heavier the paper, the heavier the package and the higher the price to ship. I don't make the shipping prices, the post office does so there's nothing I can do about this. But don't worry - it's just a fraction of a dollar more you'll be paying. I will still place them in mailing envelopes or bubble envelopes and NOT in boxes (depending on order size) to minimize the cost even more.

Again, I'm only one person. I've got 3 kids and a small business also so the amount of hexies I can punch and package will vary from week to week but I will do my best to get done what I can :) You can click here to see the Paper Piecing section of my shop to check for restocks!

If you have ANY questions THIS post is a great place to ask them! I will respond as soon as possible, or you can email me at amistabaker@gmail.com

    1. Yes, i do! :) Thanks for visiting! I used to have a thriving Etsy shop years ago for digital items like birthday invitations, cupcake toppers, etc. but I am now focusing my attention on my love for quilting and handmade goods.
