48 hour turnaround time for Prototypes!
I'm getting ready to get my next batch of boxes, for my Print & Play Productions business.
But I would like some advice from you guys on which ones I should get.

Choice A
My old boxes. Very Sturdy, One piece. Corrugated cardboard.
11 1⁄8" x 8 3⁄4" x 2" (White box to the left) - 45 cents each

Choice B
These are telescoping boxes. They are already put together. Just fold the sides up. They don't seem as strong. They are thin chipboard. Note that the sides don't always stay straight up.

8 1/2" x 11" x 2" (and 4") (45 cents and 55 cents for the 2" and the 4")

Choice C
Telescoping boxes. They are already put together. These are most like game boxes. They look great, aren't super strong, but feel most "professional". The cost is the issue.

8 1/2" x 11" x 2" (and 4") (140 cents and 180 cents for the 2" and the 4")

1. Do you like Choice A or Choice B more for the standard box?
Both come 2" tall, and 4" tall, and can hold a regular size sheet of paper.
Choice A - More sturdy
Choice B - Looks nicer.
2. The 4" tall box is for games that don't fit in the 2" tall box. Would you rather have Two 2" tall boxes or One 4" tall box?
Two Boxes - Cheaper
One Box - Nicer
3. Do you like the Choice C boxes more than the other boxes?
If so, would you pay a bit more for them?
Yes, I would pay more for the nicer boxes.
For Print and Play Games/Prototypes, I don't need boxes that nice.
