3. Full sized fluke "Signature" Fabric tails (specific fin upgrades are available for certain designs, see product description for any and all fin upgrade options)

Silicone tails: starting at $5,500
Silicone tails are completely custom made to your exact measurements and we can accommodate any size and proportions! Pricing for custom Silicone tails can be found here:https://www.finfolkproductions.com/collections/silicone-tails/products/silicone-mermaid-tail
Unfortunately, we are not currently taking silicone tail orders. We have a long production list of silicone orders that we need to finish before accepting new ones. When we are able, we do list pre-made silicone tails in various sizes and designs on our website for those looking for a silicone tail without the wait. Keep an eye out on our social media platforms for any updates on pre-made silicone tails as well as custom silicone tail slots for 2022.
Mythic tails: Starting at $1,500
Our mythic tails come in sizes XS- 5XL (size charts can be found in the photo section of every tail listing as well as in our Help Center-- simply search "mythic size chart). Mythic tails have a 22-26 week production time however mythic tail ordering and availability is changing so please refer to the last section of this FAQ "my desired tail is sold out, what do I do?"
More information on mythic tails can be found under "mythic tail info" in our help center here
Mythic tails were our first step into the world of pre-made tails that allowed our business to grow past just individual custom tails but now that our fabric tail production has evolved to fill this need, mythic tails have become more labor intensive and unsustainable than we would like and therefore in 2021, we decided to discontinue large scale mythic tails collections. At this point in our growth we would rather focus our creative energy and man power on our custom silicone tails and other projects that have gotten tabled due to mythic tail production while our fabric tails take the place of mythic tails as our more accessible tail option.
This isn't to say that we won't ever make mythic tails again but we will not be releasing large pre-sale collections again any time soon. If we do offer mythic tails again, they will be a pre-made/ready to ship item or a pre-sale collection with very very limited quantities. We understand that this might be disappointing to those looking to purchase a customized mythic tail right now but the decision to discontinue pre-sale mythic tail collections is what is best for the well being and sustainability of our company and we appreciate your understanding!
Signature Fabric Tails: Starting at $385
Featuring highly desired full sized Finfolk flukes and decorative fin options, our Signature Fabric tails come in sizes XS- 5XL (size charts can be found in the photo section of every fabric tail listing as well as in our Help Center-- simply search "fabric tail size chart). All fabric tails will be purchased in full through our website or though our mobile app. Details, pricing, and all info regarding fabric tails can be found here:

Our fabric tails are released on our website in limited edition collections on designated release days with a 12-16 week production time. We only allow for as many orders on a collection release day as well feel that we can produce in the 12-16 week production time so after we reach a certain number of orders, we close off all tail orders and all tails are marked as sold out until the next collection is released, we hope that helps clarify how ordering works and why current tails on the website are listed as sold out.
Collections are typically only produced once in large batches so we will not be re-stocking any tails from our previous collections in a large re-stock anytime soon.
Discovery Fabric Tails: Starting at $215
The Discovery tail is our most affordable tail option and is perfect for new mermaids, traveling, fun swims with less drag, or for tail collectors who just gotta have them all. Our Discovery tails come in sizes XS- 5XL and follow the same sizing as our signature fabric tails (size charts can be found in the photo section of every tail listing as well as in our Help Center-- simply search "fabric tail size chart").
Our “Tail of the Month” program is a re-stock of a single beloved signature fabric tail design from a previous collection outside of new larger collections that gives customers the opportunity to purchase a tail of some kind outside of larger collections for upcoming trips or if they missed out on the design the first time it was released in previous years. All Tail of the month design will feature a Signature fabric tail as well as a Discovery fabric tail.
The tails of the month will be available beginning at the first of the month and will change every month as we move through the year and will be a way for us to re-release seasonal favorites as the year goes on without taking away from new tail collections.
Tails of the month are listed in limited quantities vs. the open inventory style of ordering that we offer for our larger seasonal collections so that customers have an option for tails with shorter wait/production times. However please be advised that limited inventory tails of the month will result in certain sizes/fin options selling out faster than others.
