Tara,
Do you have a problem w/ the Wilton 14x19 boards fitting in the 14x19 boxes? I'm needing a box/board company too.

I do but what I end up doing is using packing tape on the sides of the box to make sure it doesn't SPRING open on me!! I just seem to use this size most often and I have a good couple of cakes coming up so I think it would be better to pay less than $1 per box than $2+ at ac moore.
too bad I don't know anyone around me where I can split the order-that would be GREAT!

I had that problem to, so i purchased half sheet boxes and boards from sames club. I know you said quarter sheet. Anyway, they are the plastic see through ones so your hard work can be seen through the box. And I don't have to trim the cakes to fit on the boards. 25 boxes and lids were $15-$16. 50 pads were $10 to $11. The box lids stack inside themselves so they don't take up that much room. Just a thought.

Thanks!

You have to go to the bakery section. They will sell them to you if they have extras in stock. If not, order them in the same dept. and it takes about 3-7 days for them to come in. Acutally you can buy almost anything they use back there - the cupcake inserts, boxes, icing, etc. Just ask.

Oh also ask for a price list so you will have an idea of what everything costs.

Doug, I am in love with BRP's PINK boxes! I just wish they sold them in smaller quantities, as I don't have room for 100. icon_sad.gif I'll have to find someone to split an order with! Thanks for the link!

Wow, that's really good to know that Sams will sell the boxes too....man, I need to renew my membership again....but, I think it's worth it just for the bakery department!! I just hate going there and spending a fortune!!

As far as the Original post....I am lucky enough to work very close to a cake and candy supply store and they carry every box, board, drum....you coudld think of...sure they're a little more expensive than I COULD get them if I could buy in bulk..but I jsut don't have the space to order cases of boxes at a time...at least not right now. I would hate to have to buy those expensive boxes from Micheals....ugh!!

At Sam's Club Boxes and lids are charged separately. I don't remember the exact amount for the bottom part but it was about $16 and $17.48 for the lids. 50 per carton with see tru the top which come to about .67 per box!!!! (around .71 with 6% tax). I don't sell a lot of cakes but paying $1.99 every time at Michael's or Joanns is just not right... and if I get the see tru ones they are $2.49!!!!

I'll second (or third!) BRP. Their prices are great and ship very quickly. I ordered 100 1/4 sheet borads (covered in foil) for only about $60. I keep 10 or so with my cake stuff and the rest in the attic! icon_biggrin.gif

Just a heads up on the Sam's club thing.....I went there and bought a case of each (tops and bottoms) and I was charged over $30 per case. I believe one cost more then the other. When I first asked to purchase them they said no they didn't do that, then they asked another person who said they did and prices were printed on a seperate sheet. I ended up paying a heck of a lot more then I wanted for 50 complete boxes.
When I was shopping for my wedding I learned a little known fact about Sam's Club's, Walmarts, Micheal's and A.C. Moores.......not all are the same! They don't have the same prices on items,the same items in stock or the same sales from one store to the next. An example would be when I was buying my favors....Micheals in the store closest to me didn't have enough votive cups so we traveled to the next location (45mins away) and tried to purchase the rest. The customer service rep informed us that it wasn't the same sale...sales go by region/area so they are often different from store to store. The best way to tell if something is available in your area and what price is to check online first....if they asked for your zip code or for you to pick a store first then you know it varies by store.

Sorry to hear about the Sam's thing. I got 25 sets (tops and bottoms) of this for $16 and change. They came in one box by the way. Like I said, you can just ask for a price list. They made a copy for me. I really like these because they are tall, your work can be seen without opening the box, and the box has a decent seal.

twooten, that is an amazing price for those!!! For the 2 years I worked there, which ended not even a year ago, those were more than the containers for the 10" round cakes(13"container) which were like 39.06.

Either they had a severe price cut or they're using the wrong plu number to make the label.
