Hat boxes aren't just for hats any more. Vintage hat boxes are often used in store displays. Decorative hat boxes can double as wholesale gift boxes. And sometimes, paper hat boxes are actually used for their original purpose -- to hold hats.
No matter what you are using hat boxes for, you will want to have a good idea of the pricing and costs of hat boxes before you start shopping. So figure out exactly what you need, and ask yourself:
1. Do I want to buy cardboard hat boxes?
2. Do I want fancy, decorative hat boxes?
3. Do I want to locate a discount hat boxes wholesale supplier?
Purchase cardboard hat boxesHat box suppliers sell round hat boxes, square hat boxes, big hat boxes and small hat boxes. The price of the box depends on the size, shape and color of the box you are purchasing. But generally, you can expect to pay around $2 per box for a small hat box and around $5 per box for a large hat box.
Purchase decorative hat boxesDecorative hat boxes make a statement. They are perfect for store displays or for gift boxes. Since most decorative hat boxes are custom made and one of a kind, prices vary greatly. However, a single decorative hat box can easily cost you several hundred dollars.
Purchase cheap hat boxesIf you need a large number of hat boxes for shipping or storage, you don't need expensive decorative boxes. You need basic discount hat boxes. The exact price will depend on the size of the box, but these cardboard hat boxes will often cost you less than $2 each.
