These Ovotherm cartons too flimsy and so was the packaging of the egg cartons. When they arrive at my place they were in several pieces
Access to a pre-labeled carton with our own custom design that is cleaner and simpler, less campy, would be nice, and so a value-added idea for your new company might be partnering with a graphics design service who could produce custom labels for you.
We like to box our eggs in the clear plastic boxes because they display our eggs nicely. The last box we ordered with the windmill is colorful and has all the information we need to sell at the market. I also really like the 6 cell star shape carton for our duck eggs. It's a unique carton and it shows off the color of the eggs. I only wish it was a little bigger overall. I know you sell the the rectangle carton for duck eggs but I prefer this one. The main problem I have had with the plastic cartons is that the snaps closure do not always hold well.The VA Cooperative Extension manage the guide lines for the farmer markets. This year they decided that we can not say "Farm Fresh" unless they are grade A or better. So I guess we will be ordering the carton that says Eggs from our farm, ungraded and unclassified. We do not grade our eggs and we mix the brown and white eggs together. This carton also has all the important information required for storage and handling. It would be nice if this one had an opening on the top so that we didn't have to open each carton before selling it.
It came already printed with all necessary legal labeling - storage instructions, description . The label was relatively attractive and left space for adding our personal label in the space below the pictured barnyard, which we printed off a personal computer.
We would purchase the unlabeled plastic cartons if the labeled cartons were no longer available. We were actually thinking about switching to unlabeled eventually, once we redesigned our own label and had a larger one created. We've been using the labeled cartons for a few years out of convenience, as the redesign was kind of low on the list. We don't have any issues selling our eggs, I think our customers really focus on the ability to view the product, rather than the label. That being said, I'm not sure I would change much about the carton or the label.
Been ordering from you for years. We don't mind paying more for these because I love not having to make and attach my own labels
