We are getting ready for our egg sales business. We already had quickly run out of egg cartons, so we ordered some online. They just came in the mail yesterday.
There are alot of rules for egg cartons in Maryland. Such as the word "Eggs" and the quantitiy must be displayed, the grade and egg size must be listed, the egg safe handling instructions must be printed on the carton in bold capital letters in a box. The farm name and address must be on the carton. The registration number and lot designation of the eggs must be listed on the carton. And everything has specific font sizes.
To make this less complicated, we ordered pre-printed egg cartons from eggboxes.com. They were the cheapest we could find online at the time. We will still have to put specific data on the cartons, such as our name and address, and the egg size and grade, and the lot number and registration number. But most of it is done for us. Simple. Sort of.
Fresh eggs, anyone???
