Origami tissue foil samples

Post by Lexigon5 »

Hello all.
I have over time developed my own special recipe for handmade tissue foil.
My version is thicker than usual and is a little easier to work with than the traditional homemade stuff.
It has a shiny metallic appearance on one side and the normal matt finish on the B side.
Easier to reverse fold that is provided you use the shiney metallic side as your main side.
I am trying to sell this paper on Etsy, but have two problems.

1: No sales or reviews to temp customers.
2: No camera or photography skills, and so the picture of my paper is not good enough to do it justice.

For the two reasons I am offering free samples of 15cm sheets from my Etsy shop.
There is a minimal 20p charge to cover the listing fee since Etsy will not let anyone list anything for totally free.
Then a charge to cover postage which is no more than you pay for a small letter up to 100 grams.
If you are interested please go here:

https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/OrigamiDreamsGB

There you see two listings. One for the full pack with a full price and the free sample listing on the left.
I will only do about Ten to Twenty of these samples, because it is costing me to do this.
All I ask in return for these free sample is an honest review from you as to the true beauty of the paper and the folding experience.

Sounds great! I'd accept if I didn't live so far from you, South America.

Where in South America ?
I just looked and Royal mail to Brazil is same as USA price. 5 to 7 days to arrive.
I think probably the whole of South America is the same. So might be worth me adding.

For the sample itself yes, but the postage is £2.50 for Colombia. Whatever that converts to in your currency.
I am about even after charges for the free samples.

Ok. I Just added the following 4 countries.

Brazil
Colombia
Peru
Philippines
