    Anyone know where I can get labels for egg cartons? I want to personalize our egg cartons and my printer at home isn't reliable enough to trust with making my own.

    Thanks in advance!

    Try EggCartons.com., they are a sponser. I just got an order of their cartons, the delivery was quick and the cartons look good and strong.

    I just make my own with 2x4" peel off shipping labels on my computer with Printshop then I stick them on each carton. Here are mine:

    I'm thinking about ordering eggcartons from Eggcartons.com and printing my own labels too.

    What I'm wondering is if anyone has had any problems with customers. I'm afraid someone is not going to cook the eggs properly, or store them safely and get sick or something. Then what? Do I worry too much? LOL

    Those look great Cynthia!

    Maybe I will just try to print them out myself and see how they turn out.

    DrakeMaiden- I thought about that too, but since we're just giving our eggs away (to friends and family) it's their own fault for eating them. hee hee.

    JenniferJoIN: Is it their fault or their luck? Free farm fresh eggs! You have some lucky friends and family.

    I sometimes give mine away too, but I'm more likely to barter for them or try to extract a little feed money.

    I just got my order of hot pink egg cartons from eggcartons.com. I am very happy with them and fast shipment.

    McMurray sells cartons: 50 for $16.25 (32 cents each)
    Eggcartons.com is 25 for $10.95 (44 cents each)

    Cheaper yet, my local Grange Coop has them for 29 cents each, no minimum required.

    Another option is www.eggboxes.com-compare prices on the cartons. The labels I'd probably still make myself, but color print cartridges aren't cheap, so it could be more cost effective to have them print labels for you if you sell alot of table eggs.
