A new glass design! But how to sell it?

My new design is ready for the shops! My eldest daughter requested me make her some bunting spelling her name and it has come out so well I think it would make a really nice gift for a birthday, or a wedding decoration or gift  personalised with whatever name/word and colours you want. The lettering is simple and clear to read and each flag has a unique little hand painted folksy pattern on it in a vintage/gypsy style which are hand painted by me and fired in the kiln. They work out at £5 per letter, which makes it easy for customers to know how much they have to pay BUT I dont know how to do this on my online shops, do people have to buy lots of individual letters or should I do packs of 4 letters, 6 letters etc? Or do I just get people to email me and I list a custom item for each name? Any thoughts welcome!

    Folksy is a little problematic for that. You can’t list one flag and then let people buy however many they need as you are limited in each posting to 5 items. Names vary so much in length (3-10 letters) that it might be worth having custom items for each name.
