Was wondering if anyone has a good sources for custom boxes that I can have my logo printed. Wanting to ship pipes that are not just in a sleeve but in something that looks a bit more professional. Thanks!

I go to my local craft supply place like an AC Moore or somthing like that. I get small wooden boxes that cost like 4 bucks each. I stain them black and affix my logo on a business card to the top. I like the look.

I've got a really good source, but I'll have to look it up. They're out of Milano.

Hi...I know this is a very old post but I though I'd pass this along anyway.

For the boxes that may work...check out Ekan Concepts at http://www.ekanconcepts.com/
I have two friends that use them all the time.
Nice bunch of folks, very ready and willing to help from one to five thousand.

Hey BLC,

I didn't go with them. They're beautiful but I couldn't justify the additional cost.

Honestly, I didn't ask. :P

At the time I thought it'd be nice to package my pipes in an elegant wood box, but after I considered it, I decided that it was unlikely that the box would serve as anything other than attractive decoration that would either be discarded after it was opened or stored on a shelf collecting dust. The extra cost just didn't make any sense to me, even if it's only $10.

This reminds me of the Chicago show in 2004 I think, when Paul Tatum had his pipes shipped to the show in boxes similar to these...

I had to dig deeeep in my files to find these pics!
