    I'm thinking of getting sticker/labels printed for my egg cartons. I had some labels that I printed up myself just on 3x5 cards (my egg cartons are clear) but I don't have a printer that works anymore. I was wondering if anybody else has had some printed up and who did it?

    I will be printing my own, but we will be using the recycled card cartons...and theres a nice big gap in the top where they want you to put a label. The only thing is with getting them done, unless you find some student who can do them for cheap, is that you'll probably end up paying quite a bit for them. I mean... for instance, for business cards, Staples was going to charge us like $500.00! ... well it cost me under $100.00 to do them myself, and to my satisfaction, it's similar with labels.. it might be more economical to just buy a new printer!

    you can get a ink stamp made, it's on the egg carton ad flashing in the upper right. well it's not flashing now but it does a lot. anyways that would be your cheapest, (i wanna say $50ish?) initial cost then just the cost of an ink pad now and then (more then) $2-$3

    We're getting an ink stamp made for our kennel stuff, to put on our puppy care kit bags [​IMG] They're the cheapest if you want something done if you don't have a printer.

    Quote:I ordered the plain labels from eggcartons.com to print with my info. I also bought the pre-printed FDA required labels. It was really not expensive. I think they are about .80 per sheet of 10 so very cheap and their service was fabulous.

    I had an ink stamper made by eggcartons and there service was very good. Even called me to make sure the design was what I wanted ( I changed the design at their suggestion and I'm glad I did). About 50 bucko's for just the stamper. I had artwork added so it cost alittle more and I did buy the stamping kit. That block of wood in the kit makes the stamping much easier. You need to buy the cardboard egg containers and not the styrofoam.
