    Where to get cheap cases?

    I may be looking for a new supplier for medium sized clamshell cases. Ron's Optical is great, but they're on the West Coast and I'm in CT. The shipping is killing us, so does anyone know of somewhere closer on the East Coast where I can get them?

    Thanks!
    Caroline, L.O.

    Try Dynamic Labs. They are based in NY. I’m sure that you can negotiate pricing that you will be comfortable with.

    Was it 1000 cases or 1000 cases of cases? There has to be a mistake there.

    No, I was just suggesting another supplier. That's who we get our cases from. Shipping is very reasonable.

    Funny, I didn't read all the posts and had looked up The Optical Source and was going to send you a link. The Resslers are nice people, and my experiences with that company has been good. Fedex Ground is inexpensive from Danbury to my place in MA, so I don't think you'll have complaints about shipping costs.
