I am looking for a clear plastic type macaron box, that will hold three macarons. Everything I find with my suppliers holds 2, 4, 6, or more. But I need to produce a wedding favor of three per box. I see some here and there via Google - but no links to sources. I need the rectangle, not the round one. Payard in NYC sells a 3-macaron box and I have written them asking for a source, but they have not responded.
Anyone have any ideas where I can find this item?
Hi Judy, just found a link to where this person used a clear box for 3 Macarons...I think she made it herself..check it out anyway...
Hope this was helpful....all the best....
I've seen this blog post, it came up in my search. I don't have time to make 100 of them and I'd have to charge an ungodly labor rate to my client if I did.. Incidentally, I finally called Francois Payard in NYC, and they refused to refer me to their supplier. They wouldn't even sell me 100 empty boxes. I'm shocked such a huge successful brand would so unhelpful to a tiny 1-person shop clear across the country.
Thanks for taking the time to reply, Lily!
I used a clear plastic box that the client got from Papermart; it held 2 macaron but there was definitely room for one more and it was definitely a rectangle. Don't go with the 2x2 cube, that one barely holds 2 very small macs (and don't ask how we know this ;)!!!!
Edited to add: The ones from Papermart look exactly like the ones in that blog post; they come flat but you just pop it and close the flap and it's done. It took about 20 seconds to do that; but I made sure we did them a few days in advance so I could figure out what size box they needed to go in so we could transport them to the venue....
Thanks for the lead! It looks like they have a 2x2x3 that should work. I normally put three in a pleated eclair paper and slide that into a cardboard bottom cello bag. That ends up measuring around 2x2x3, so hopefully it will be great. Thanks again!
I hope this link works.
Right - I have other sizes of that style of box - very easy to put together. I need to have them assembled, filled, and tied with a gold ribbon the night before the wedding for their coordinator to take when she sets up in the morning.
I like to buy much of my other packaging locally from a place called Glerup-Revere. Their macaron boxes are the wrong size for my current need, but generally run on the small side anyway. But their cello bags, ballotin boxes, and windowed paper bags are really really nice - and their customer service top notch.
Another place, though not local, is Qualita Paper from France. They have a US office in LA and I get my small gold dessert tab boards, other gold dessert and cake boards, and a lot of my pleated paper cups, etc from them. They tried to locate the size box I needed from other suppliers for me.
Gotta give a shout out to deserving suppliers, even if they can't always come through on every need.
