Default Best place to buy battery boxes?

I am looking to buy 1000 battery boxes - suitable to hold 6-cell matched packs. I think the dimensions I'd like are around 16cm wide, 6cm deep, and 2.5cm high.

I want to get some printing done on them as well.

Can anyone suggest the best (and cheapest) place to get this done? Somewhere online would be best I guess. And I definitely need my logo on the boxes, so I can't just buy other company's boxes.

Thanks.

You could just buy 1000 battery boxes and then put stickers on them, just a thought.

Most companies get their battery boxes from here. I believe they also do printing.

Thanks for the suggestion Tek - but this would look really unprofessional, unless you knew where to buy blank boxes from.... (I am open to suggestions).

Cardboard - thanks for the link. They look awesome! But I am actually talking about the boxes that you would receive, say, 6 loose cells in, if you bought it from a battery matcher.

Anyone else have any ideas?

Thanks a lot for your help!

Fukuyama has the nicest battery boxes Ive seen yet. Contact them Im sure they will have no problem giving you the info. The cost is all in the printing so it should cost only slightly more for a nice box compared to a cheap one. The printing doesent have to be elaborate to look good. Quality is the key to selling any form of racing product.
