  • Where do you buy your cardboard boxes?

    Now there's a title to encourage the spammers

    I've run out of a specific size of box and need to order some more but my usual supplier doesn't do this size. I could order them from the place I originally got them from but the shipping cost is just silly so I wondered if you could all let me know where you buy your cardboard/postal boxes from?

    I can have a quick look at all those recommended and hopefully some will do the size I'm after.

    Thanks all

      Ahhhh how annoying, we got back from a long weekend away yesterday.....and were staying about 5-10 miles away from them!!!

      Still, they are now on my list as their min order and delivery charge are slighly better.

      Anyone else?

        I was going to mention davpack. I've used them before for jiffy bags. Viking Direct do boxes too, and their very quick delivery is free for orders over £30.

          Never bought any new cardboard boxes in my long and illustrious crafting career. I have always recycled used ones or used padded envelopes which you can get in quite large sizes these days. LC

            ]I can only recycle to a point as I send out far more parcels than I receive and jiffys don't always protect items enough.

            Will take a look at Viking but I tend to use them only in emergencies cos they usually work out quite expensive. Looking for somewhere with a min spend of about £50 if possible as it's only this size box I need to restock on at the moment.

              I have just had some delivered today, from mm_world on ebay, I think they have a website as well, Lovely sturdy boxes and fast delivery. I have used them before and have always been pleased.

                Sorry can't help as I recycle boxes, I get loads from shops etc and cut them to size. For the sort of thing that I make it's OK but I doubt if it'd work for things like jewellery etc.

                    My ganes and puzzles are all different sizes, and I have found it almost impossible to obtain boxes which are the correct size, to hold the item without having to put in extra packaging to stop them bouncing around.
                    I now get decent strong white card, and make my own. It works out at between 25 and 30p a box, so, to me, it is worth the bit of time involved, to get something my item fits neatly into.

                    cheers

                        They are really good sellers. I've been using them for a couple of years and they deliver really quickly. Postage costs are great. I always make sure I do a big order and then I hardly notice P&P costs.
                        I'm sure you won't be dissapointed.

                          Definitely wasn't disappointed Debbie! I ordered some bubble wrap as well as the boxes in the end and they arrived very quickly, free P&P too so that was a bonus. Have them now saved on my favourites

                            We use asc cartons. They have a box making option.
                            You can specify the size that you need and they make them up pretty quickly.
