Plain Egg Cartons - best place to buy?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I am selling a few dozen eggs per week and my state law requires, among other things, unlabeled, non-recycled (never been used) cartons be used to sell the eggs. I have looked around on ebay and hatchery sites for the cheapest new, plain egg cartons, but have not been terribly satisfied with what I have found; all seem expensive to me.

Just wondering if anyone can point me in a good direction for the best-priced plain new cartons before I spend my money somewhere else. Thanks in advance for your help!

Last year I purchcase plain cartons from someone on ebay. I think I got 50 for less than $20 shipping included. I started to give out eggs for free, under the rule that I get the cartons back. Now I have so many cartons because not only did they return the cartons I gave the eggs in, they gave me any extra cartons they got from food stores. However, those had printing on them. I would check ebay from time to time. Maybe it is the time of year that the prices seem high.

We get them from the feed store for about 10 cents each. They are the paper type.

I know what you mean.  For ever dozen I give out with the rule bring back the carton and I will refill it everyone brings back extra just for me to have.  I have alot of the 18 packs.  Soon I will be able to fill one of those in less than 3 days.  I can't wait.  I love going outside on egg hunts.smile

If you don't want words on them then can't you just put white-out or something over the words? Just an idea.

I know that it's a requirement in NC. You can have some printing on the carton, but there are restrictions on what they can say.

I'm in Kentucky - I have looked at a few of those sites and was hoping for something a little cheaper...oh well, if anyone else has any suggestions, I'm all ears. Thanks.
