cardboard box supplier ?

Seeking a source for cardboard boxes, preferably Canadian or North American. These would be used for hand made soaps in a retail setting. Dimensions; 1"x3"x3.5". Natural finish [brown]. Any links appreciated.
TIA,
Richard

Uline. Get their catalogue. Tons of shipping and logistical supplies, including boxes of various types. If you want a custom retail box, you may need to find another source like PKG Inc of Oxnard, CA. For Tube Bandit I used a basic white Uline box and added a custom label.

I don't mean to rain on the party, however, Uline might have a great selection but they don't have the best pricing unless you plan to buy in the semi trailer full. I have gotten stuff there several times but the last few times I have done a wee bit of shopping around and found much better deals to be had on the same product from smaller suppliers. They do have a great selection though.

You can also do a local search and see if there is a local supplier. A couple companies I worked for did this. Jim

Indeed!

Another potential source for you since this is a boutique sort of product is Etsy. You can find all kind of weird crafty stuff on there and I'd be willing to bet some creative person is out there just chomping at the bit to make a soap box. So many ways to put a wrapper around soap and critical for your product's success.

We use ULine. They have good prices, great service and we have found they ALWAYS have what we need in stock. We use them for boxes, cds, cd cases, tape and so on. I know that we could get cd and cds cheaper else where, however, we have always had inventory issues with other suppliers.
