does it have to really black cupcake liners? why don't you try those cupcake wrappers where you kinda just slip the cupcakes in them? you can make them using black colored scrapbook paper.

I've seen a lot of suggestions to try the Over the Hill sections at stores, Walmart, Dollar Stores, and the like.

If you can't find them, I'd go with the wrappers, homemade or bought.

Good luck!!

Thanks for trying everyone! The problem with the laser cut ones is that they're over $1 a piece, and I need 320! That's a big chunk out of the budget. And they're for a wedding so they have to be all black. South East Asia sounds interesting though. How would I pay icon_lol.gif ? By the way the lady at Wilton laughed at me. They don't take suggestion well icon_cry.gif . So the search continues, or I get arthritis trying to cut 320 wraps. Thanks again.

over here they cost like 65cents (USD) per pack of 150 liners. so for 320 pcs you would be paying like less than $3.
shipping them might cost more than the price of the liners though icon_razz.gif

I worked in manufacturing and I would have chuckled, too. 320 of anything is hardly worth firing up the equipment for. I'd have more cost in set-up time than I would in the price of the order, which is why mfg'rs have minimums like 1000 or 5000. Heck, I used to short-ship orders by 5000 units and consider it "filled and closed". When we'd run a new item, the first coupla hundered pieces were just test items to get the machinery "warmed up".

Have a look here. If you want to email them and find out for sure if they have them in stock or can get them. Should ask them about shipping costs, and if they won't ship them to you then I would be happy to send them to you. They are only about 20 min away from me and I go there on occasion to pick up a few things.

Just pm me if you want me to help you out.

I know this may be too late (and too expensive), but I don't know if these would work: http://www.thepeppermillinc.com/Prod_Dtl.asp?prodid=785&catid=98&catname=Paper%20baking%20pans
At any rate, they look really neat!

I woulda had me a good ol' belly laugh! 320 is a drop in the ocean to a manufacturer. Please tell me you didn't really expect them to jump at the chance to make you a mere 320? 10 000 now... that's a whole 'nother story.

I hope you find the liners.

chutzpah- Of course I didn' t expect them to. But, after searching the internet for hours and after many phone calls I needed a laugh, and I was desperate. I had giving up hope and was slowly but surely going crazy. But, I have since regrouped. I can now tell the bride that I have tried EVERYTHING. Maybe, we can all get together and get wilton to start making black liners icon_biggrin.gif . Hey, with the popularity of cupcakes for weddings increase there will be a big market for them. Just think of the possibilities icon_rolleyes.gif !

Why not order 10 000 and use what you need, and then sell the rest on e-bay in packs of 50 and make a grand profit?

If you decide you want to use the laser cut wrappers, let me know. I can get them wholesale.

I ordered all black cupcake liners from www.cakedecoratingcentral.com.au/ . I'm in Australia but I searched in the states (cause it's a lot cheaper) but this was the only place that sold them.
