Where does everyone purchase their cake boxes ? I'm looking for bulk quantity, sturdy ones ( not the flimsy wilton type). Without ordering tons of samples from all over the place, I thought I would ask here....the ones you would suggest ( or avoid !).
Brp box shop, papermart, or others ?
All I've ever used are the Wilton ones, so I'd love to hear some feedback too!
There are some posts that say the BRP Box Shop has great prices and boxes. Sorry I can't find the post right now.
Wilton boxes are horrible I am sure you know that by now. I buy them locally or I really like the boxes from PME they are 2 pieces and very sturdy they also come with a board. Little pricey though. I get them through CK Products Though Global sugar art might have them
Thanks psurrette - I will look them up this afternoon !
Anyone else have suggestions - that they have personally used ?
I use is BRP Box Shop...Their boxes are fabulous as well as the prices. Not to mention the customer service is always outstanding.
sams has half and full sheet boxes, ask at the bakery, you have to buy by the case
I just tried BRP's 10 samples for $10. Pics and my thoughts here:
You'll see I got a 10x10x4, x5, and x6. The design slightly differed as the dimensions changed.
I get mine from Global Sugar Art. They are a lot stronger than Wilton. I just want to laugh at the Wilton sheet cake boxes. WHat I like about the ones from GSA, is that you can order a case, or you can order 5 at a time of every size, and they are still a better price than what you will find in the store. I recommend their cake circles too. Still a better price, if you don't want to order cases of stuff.
Metria - thanks for the link to your research ! It was very helpful !
Mindy- I love Global Sugar Art too- I will have to check out the prices on bulk boxes (they have great customer service !).
Papermart and Nashville Wraps
I bought some at Web restrant supply and was VERY happy with it. I ordered 2 cases of 1/2 sheet cake boxes and 1 of them had water damage, just 1 box in the bundle was bad. I emailed them and they sent me for free a case of 50 more.
I have always gotten my boxes at papermart.com and have loved them! The shipping can be a little pricey but I try to order more than I need so that I only twice a year or so.
Wow! This is awesome!
In the past, I have just gone to the supermarket and asked for cardboard boxes they were going to throw away.
I've also used beer flats or soda flats. (a half a box which holds 24 cans of soda/beer)
2 boxes will hold a 13X9 inch cake comfortably.
4 boxes cut lengthwise and taped together will hold a half a sheet cake.
I also grab up any tp or paper towel boxes, cut into circles or cake boards and wrap with 2 layers of freezer paper. (shiney side out)
It's time consuming, but very cheap.
My cake sales are going to increase by volume, so I think I'm going to have to start purchasing cake boxes/circles.
