Ok, I have a client who wants to do something like this
for her son's birth announcement - I can't find the clear boxes locally, does anyone know a reputable online site that carries them? I PM'd the original creator but she's from another country and didn't know where I might find them here.
Looks like Papermart.com. Item #83451611 is 6", Item#83451811 is 8" They have a gold base, but you could cover then. Neat idea!!
US Box has similiar boxes:
or Nashville wraps:
Thanks so much for the sites, that's exactly the box!! I'm going with papermart, because they are $10 cheaper for twice as many boxes!
PS - how much would you all charge for these? I was thinking $1/cookie (6 cookies per name) plus packing?
I think you should ask more. They are very time consuming and you have the cost of the boxes.
Really? Would someone pay more than $6 per favor? They do seem like ALOT of work! Anyone have an idea of how they would charge these out?
I usually order my packaging supplies from Papermart and they're great to do business with. They have so many neat and pretty packaging items.
Thanks for the input everyone, I think I'll take your advice and try papermart - they seem to have the best pricing!
Here is another packaging option website for cookies, etc.
Thanks for the heads up about Papermart. I have been wanting to purchase the chinese "take out" boxes but they are always so expensive.
Is your client a friend? That would help make your decision of $1 per cookie easier for you.
How big are the cookies?
When I'm pricing, I not only take into consideration the size, but also how difficult they are to decorate. These seem pretty simple. Sometimes a large cookie is the same as a smaller, more detailed cookie.
I ordered the boxes for my 3D cookie cutter kits from Papermart, and was very happy with the product and their service. Another consideration for pricing the cookies is how long it takes you to complete each favor. Is your "wage" going to be adequate to cover your time?
