I picked up my tile order yesterday. I got these "1'x1'" meshes of 1" diameter hexagonal tiles. It was explained to me that you buy them by the total square feet. I wanted to get 10% more than I needed and I needed 80 square feet, so I paid for 88 square feet. I got 8 boxes, each with 11, 1'x1' meshes. When I was unloading them at home, I noted one of the boxes was open and only had 8 meshes in it. When I called and pointed out that I was shy 3 meshes, they explained that somehow, that was correct, but I couldn't understand how that works out.
Besides that, the meshes are not 1'x1'. I measured them and they are 11" by 11.5"?! I mean, if that's shrinkflation, then whatever - I won't blame them for that, but what's up with being 3 sheets short?
The tile is Merola Carrara. I could not find an on-line listing for it, but here's what the box says and pictures of my measurements. It was hard to hold the camera and the tape measure at the same time, so although the horizontal measurement looks like 11 5/8, it is actually 11 1/2. Horizontally, I measured a single row. Vertically I measured from the tip of one to the valley of the other.
And here's the row for these tiles on the invoice:
