Wingspan sizes are approximate and vary by specie, basically each size group has butterflies that range in wingspan from the group before them up to the size they are listed as, the % variation is the same for each specie for every size class when compare to each other from another size group. Example: a regular sized butterfly can vary in wingspan depending on specie anywhere from 4.6 cm up to 6cm approximately.
I do mostly custom orders: different sizes, specific species, exact quantities, color matching, glitter accents, you name it! When looking at the comparison photo of my sizes above notice that the overall size of the butterflies optically decreases to about half the real size when wings are folded back to create a realistic butterfly look.
Pricing per dozen:
$2.00 Dinky – whole butterfly is about the size of a "Pinky" fingernail, the antennae aren't very defined, but these are still kind of cute.
$3.00 Mini – wingspan about ¾ inch or the diameter of a dime (these are great for table decorations, confetti, and mixing in with rice) the details start to be hard to distinguish though.
$5.00 Small – wingspan about 1 inch or the diameter of a quarter (a fun alternative for the rose petals the flower girl throws down the aisle and great for invitations)
$8.00 Medium – wingspan about 4.5 cm (this is the smallest size that I suggest using on cakes)
$12.00 Regular – wingspan about 6 cm (this is the size I list for sale)
$24.00 Large – wingspan about 9 cm or a little over 3.5 inch
$30.00 X-Large – wingspan about 12 cm or 4.75 inch
$36.00 Jumbo – wingspan about 15 cm or 6 inches
Pricing for Individuals: (anything less then 12 butterflies in a size, option only available in sizes below)
$1.50 Regular – wingspan about 6 cm (this is the size I list for sale)
$2.50 Large – wingspan about 9 cm or a little over 3.5 inch
$3.50 X-Large – wingspan about 12 cm or 4.75 inch
$4.50 Jumbo – wingspan about 15 cm or 6 inches
$5.50 X - Jumbo – about 8”H x 10”W depending on species
Glitter accents can be added in a variety of styles and colors for the fee of $5.00 per dozen.
The butterflies normally come as a flat translucent plastic decal that can then be folded to create a more realistic look or they come with inserts. Frosting can be used to adhere the butterflies to the cake, but if you want to create a lot of depth the inserts help to achieve that.
