    I think the best is probally www.eggcartons.com
    You might be able to find some cheap ones on ebay though. You can have your own logo printed on egg cartons.com which is nice but can be a little expensive.

    Thanks for your help! I wound up at eggboxes.com because they had FREE shipping. That saved a bunch. Some places the shipping was as much as the dang foam egg cartons.. lol

    Eggcartons.com was the cheapest I found. Seems after you divide it out, eggboxes.com is pretty close to the same price. Ebay actually was more expensive ... USED cartons averaging 35-40 cents each w/shipping.

    I buy all the used ones I need from a local thrift store called Bethesda.
    I pay 1 or 2 cents each.. I buy about a hundred at a time...

    Quote:I just compared the 2.. eggcartons and eggboxes and as of today for basically the same item, eggboxes is cheaper at 29 cents per 100. Eggcartons came in at 47 cents per 100 by the time I added shipping. Eggboxes had FREE shipping.. yipppeeee..

    You could have family and friends save their egg cartons for you. A freebie.
