For those interested in making some of your own tiles for the many ‘fan-made’ expansions out there:
If you add up the number of tiles required to make all the different fan-made expansions, you would need somewhere in excess of 500+ tiles.

I can get chipboard pads (the same cardboard used to make the tiles) pre-cut into tile shaped squares (45mmx45mm - 0.08" (2mm) thick) and grey/grey in color (ie. Not printed on either side – see a picture HERE – same as the tile in the middle).
I would ideally want to sell them in minimum 500 tile batches . With any luck people might be interested in this idea so they can make their own tiles?

I have printed off several full page sticker sheets of custom tile artwork, stuck them to the chipboard and then cut them out individually with an xacto knife and ruler (which is very time consuming!) but the tiles look great - minus the fact they don't have the C on the back....
But I'd really like it if the tiles were pre-cut for me!

The cost to buy official blank tiles from HiG is about $0.11usd each ($0.138cdn) - not including international postage to Canada/US and being limited to buying 60 tiles.
The cost to buy these pre-cut blank chipboard tiles is:
1000 = $50usd or $60cdn
500 = $25usd or $30cdn
100 = $5usd or $6cdn
(plus postage)

Or, broken down, $0.05usd each ($0.06cdn) - with no international postage!
I can ship from either Blaine, WA for the USA or Vancouver, BC for Canada. There would be no duties or taxes....just freight/postage - either Can.Post/USPS or UPS.


Question:
Would you be interested in buying pre-cut blank tiles in a 'lot' of either 500pcs or 1000pcs?

If you're interested, could you please post the quantity and the state/province and country you live in? I will total up the numbers on Saturday May 2nd.

Thanks!

Interesting idea.

If this progresses, I'd be interested in 700 +/- depending on postage.

Too bad the response has been limited so far.

I'm in NJ.

Thanks for the interest...though limited, I might still be able to make this happen with the combined interest here and at CarcassonneCentral.com.

I will extend the deadline another week or so to see if more people are interested.
I will also try to get some quotes together for you. If you could please edit your original post and include your zip code I will get you guys some quotes.

Fingers crossed!
cool

I'm interested in 500 tiles. I'm from Quebec (G9B2A2). I'll send you a private message in 1-2 days to confirm.

I also post your offer on another gaming board, it should help a little to get more interest in this offer.

Thanks

Cigal

I would be interested in 500. I'm also from Québec (J8P 6P9), but a good 350km from Claude (above).

BTW, thanks Claude from cross-posting in the Québec gaming forum, which is where I saw this just now!

Edit: Postal Code

Hi everyone,

Just to let you all know, I will be placing the order with my supplier this week.
Production and shipping will take 6-8 weeks so I should have the tiles in my warehouse around the end of Aug.
I will email everyone individually to arrange payment (via Paypal) and shipping.
If there is anyone who is no longer interested, please can you email me to let me know?

Just to clarify one point - the tiles are loose. They are NOT in a sheet that you punch out.

Thanks,
Chris

Boards and bits is out of stock.
They have been since I was pointed to this thread.

Can we still purchase them through the person here making them?

Ebay Germany does it again-

http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?type=4&cam...


or if that is expired you can do a search-

Not sure if they will ship to the USA or not.. it says unspecified. Google Translate is very useful in this case.
