    I'm about to start selling eggs at retail locations and need a good source for egg cartons. Probably plain. Does anyone have a place they recommend? The prices seem to be all over the place! Thanks!

    The bigger the order the cheaper the per carton price usually works out.

    I favor www.eggboxes.com myself.

    Others like www.eggcartons.com

    There are other places as well.

    You can get all of these that you want for free... [​IMG] if you can use them.
    Go to your closest large "breakfast" restaurant(s) and ask the manager(s) to save them for you rather than throwing them away. I have a stack of them that I use for hatching lockdown in the incubator. They're 5x6 compartments, so they hold 30 eggs.
    ETA BTW, they can be cut to any size easily with scissors.

    www.EggCartons.com has free shipping for the next two weeks. Use coupon code FALL2010 when ordering.

    They have the best customer service! They stand behind their products and always do right by their customers.

    You cant beat that with a stick.
