I am just starting out with selling cakes and cupcakes and am in search of a place to find reasonably priced boxes. They seem to be so expensive in all the places that I have found (and I have done days of Google searches). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Someone else posted this site the other day, and said their prices are great. I haven't needed cupcake boxes, but the prices look good to me...

sdrb84 ...are you looking for individual boxes? If it is so. see if there is a florist wholeseller in your area, the ones here in MIAMI have just the perfect sizes for "party favor" that is what they call those boxes. Another thing , do you have a store that sells everything wholesale? Something like SAMS or RESTAURANT DEPOT These co. sell to small business and they have a large selection of paper goods and clear contaieners.

This is another good place for cake/cupcake boxes and other supplies. The prices are reasonable and you dan't have to buy in bulk.

Wow Penniek that is a great website. Soledad and Cakeandpartygirl you night want to check it out. It seems to be about half price or less of the other place and you can order them individually. Thanks again Penniek!

I guess these aren't really "boxes" but I sometimes get plastic cupcake holders from Stater Brothers for 50c to $1 (depends on what store you buy them at). They hold 12 cupcakes. I transport the cupcakes in them and then if possible, I re-use for the next order.

Where can you find them at? I've never seen them around here. Can you order them online?

Thanks icon_smile.gif

wesellcoffee.com has the plastic cupcake boxes too, look for "plastic cupcake" they have enough to hold 1, 4, 6, and 12. They sell individually. This is also a great place for cupcake liners, 500 white ones for under $5. http://www.wesellcoffee.com/page13.html

But for white cupcake boxes, I buy from uline.com http://www.uline.com/Product/Detail/S-7087/Retail-Boxes/4-x-4-x-4-White-Gloss-Gift-Boxes

Another great looking site, I've already added it in to my favorites, and will go over it more later. Thank you.

The only thing I would suggest, is to do a comparison of the two on something specific you want to order. The first one: http://www.brpboxshop.com/ has free shipping, and the second: http://www.wesellcoffee.com/cgi-wesellcoffee/sb/order.cgi charges you for shipping. So depending on where you live, what and how much you need to order, you may use each at different times because of price.

I did a little math and even though wesellcoffee.com charges for shipping the prices are still better. It is 17.65 for 10 boxes plus inserts and shipping where as brpboxshop.com charges 33.07 for the boxes plus inserts. So even though they have free shipping it still seems to be cheaper.

WOW, that's a big difference. Thanks for the update info on it.

I have needed cupcake boxes in the past, but what I could find was soooo expensive, I just worked with what regular boxes I had.

Yes I actually did l little more math and found that you can get 25 boxes, inserts and shipping ffor almost the same price as 10 boxes from the other place.

And I thought the prices from the other site looked good when I saw it the other day, especially compared to other prices I've seen that were outrageous. It would have cost more for the boxes than the cupcakes themselves, way more.

this is really good information, and now I'll be going there if I need boxes. And I also like that you can pick just how many boxes you need. That's very good for those of us who only need them occasionally.

The difference in brp box shop pricing is probably in the quality. I use only the pink windowed boxes. They are sturdy, even at the larger sizes and the finish is high quality with a shiny coating, not just cardboard. BRP offers samples and that will give you the opportunity to compare.

also, when they're comparing the count of 10 from BRPboxshop, most places are going to be cheaper. It's when you get into the volume of the 100 count boxes that they are cheaper

BRPbox shop is the best. Excellent product, incredible variety of sizes etc. and, as has been said, a box of 100 is cheaper. Before I ordered the first time, I spent the $10 fee and selected 10 sample boxes (diff. sizes, finishes, etc) and they came quickly, giving me a first had experience with my possible choices. Made ordering so easy.

Anyone buy the pink boxes from Uline? Are they thick good quality boxes? Or kinda flimsy?
