I talk to David. They have pretty low minimums. I use a local label guy in SLC, but there are cheaper people in your area I'm sure. The box can also be used for my chocolates. Billie Ann Plastic has a good selection of stock boxes that are interesting. Good luck. My email is ruth (at) sweetchocolot (dot) com
