    Corrugated boxes?

    Sorry if this is in the wrong section, but does anyone know where I can get prices for custom made corrugated boxes? You know custom printed in different shapes and sizes. I tried googling but no luck and preferably someone with a website, we want to check what it will cost to have our own custom boxes.

    We but corrugated cardboard rolls from westpack. If you are not that busy it works well. Mpact are the big boys in packaging so ask them as well.
    Only stress when you can change the outcome!

    Merrypak does all my boxes. You just have to be sure that your die designs are perfect. If you drawing aren't good then they will happily make 100's of bad boxes for you. I learned this the hard way. Speak to Marion at Merrypak, she is the owner and she really knows her stuff. Merypak is in the Pinelands area but you can find them on the web.
