Did I ever make a mistake ordering from these guys icon_mad.gif
Over 3 weeks ago I placed an order through them for a assortment of cupcake boxes. I liked them because they are based out of Canada so less shipping/ border costs. Plus I assumed it would be fast...... I still have no boxes! I have missed out on two markets because of this. ( I will take my share of the blame. I should have had boxes squared away by May)
They also didn't have the color of box I wanted in 1 size and had 40 less single boxes then I placed an order for. It took 5 back and forth emails for them to understand that instead of pink boxes that they didn't have that I would just take white ( the only color left in that size)
Last Friday they said that my order was in an cover and would be there that day or Monday ..... Nope, so for this whole last week there was no reply to my emails asking for the shipping info so I could just track it myself. Today I got a terse, " there is no tracking #, as we sent it like a letter that the postman picked up, just call Canada Post and see if you can find it"
?!?!?!?!? icon_mad.gif
I'm mad , I want to cancel my order but will now have to miss more markets. This is a learning experience ( first box order) BRP here I come !!!!
I would say avoid Creative

A lidded 9 ounce plastic cup makes a fab cupcake container. Use it upside down. I've been doing it for a long time., Easy to find, cheap (5 cents each), customers think it's brilliant. Put the lid on the counter. Place cupcake on it. Snap cup into place.

I second what Leah said. Although, I can only get the domed lids locally and I had issues doing the upside down thing with those. So I drop them right inside the cups and it's fine. Here's a picture:
