you have to buy a million of them to get cute ones...it sux...well maybe not a million....but it seems to me there was a bakery owner on here maybe txcat? that spent thousands getting special boxes.

i just use plain old white boxes, cause i buy locally...i'd even be delighted if i could get pink.

VERY basic, but you really can't beat the price.

And I'm so dumb. We order boxes from them for work and for some reason I hadn't thought to look at them from cake boxes until now! icon_wink.gif

ccr03 - those cake pads seem to be cheap......have you ever used those? If so, are they the same thickness of regular cardboards that maybe you'd buy from wilton or at a specialty cake supply?

never used the pads. They seems like they are the ones you are talking about.

If you need a variety of sizes and can't buy full cases of each, www.bgpaper.com is a good site. They're inexpensive and fast, and I've ordered from them several times and never had a problem with them.

I didn't like papermart. The boxes are not strong.... at least the ones i got weren't.

I don't think they use recycled paper, but they do offer brown boxes. AND FREE SHIPPING! I've gotten many great things from this company.

I just drew up orders on 3 sites to compare pricing .... I ordered 200 of the 10x10x5 plain white cake boxes.

B&G: Boxes $53.90 + $36.11 shippping = $90.01

BRP: Boxes $93.92 + $0.00 shipping = $93.92

Uline: Boxes $92.00 + $23.94 shipping = $115.94

So be sure you do a comparison. "Free" shipping is not always cheaper.

granted....it really depends upon how FAR you are from the warehouse.

in my case --- ordering a two cases of 200 boxes from B&G, the cost for the "estimated" shipping was $42.47 for a total of $96.37 or $3 more than BRP.

(hate it when they "estimate" the shipping -- come on -- give me a firm amount!)

shipping at Uline was $32.22

so, yes.....

it does pay to check to see just which is the cheapest for you where you are at.

for me...BRP

(tho have to admit --- really like that B&G lets you order as little as ONE box -- and you have to admit their photos w/ that 3D grid are great!)

and w/ the price of gas.......

all shipping charges will go up

I wonder how long BRP will be able to offer free shipping or how much they will have to raise their prices.

price of gas is why I'm checking on-line, now.

My cake supply store orders boxes in bulk for me .... a great cost savings, very comparable to what I'm seeing on-line, here. but it's a 30-45 min drive for me. And it's not so much the cost of gas, anymore, but I just don't have 2 hours in a day to drive across town for boxes anymore. I can spend two hours soliciting the area businesses for business .... or spend it driving my van across town when I could have the stuff just delivered to me?

It's a no brainer now.

some of the food suppliers will sell you boxes too...when i used dawn as a distributer, i bought boxes from them....they weren't a bad price either....i think 1/4 sheets were about 30 bucks, for 100...that was a couple years ago tho.

For inexpensive customization -- perhaps print out some color labels? (Use the Avery labels?) I also have a embosser that makes round gold labels for me with my name, I stick it on the box with a ribbon.

Just an idea...

Also, I was very happy with the quality of BRP's boxes.

We get all of our boxes in custom colors along with printed ribbon and silver labels from www.imagepackaging.com

I've had the blue boxes for a while and now it appears that Ron Ben Isreal has stolen my MoJo....GRRR.
