Ledendary lures and others,

Where do you get your boxes for your lures made. I'm looking for a company that sells the cardbroad or a wooden box.

I design, print, cut, fold and glue my own cardboard boxes. This way, I have total control of all aspects of the box. I'm not limited to any particular box size. That is to say, I can custom fit the box to the lure.

On the other hand, making boxes is quite time consuming. It's also sometimes boring. It seems like the box is alsways the last part of the lure that gets made.

If you want to give it a try, all you need is MicroSoft PAINT, some 110 pound paper, a glue stick and a pair of scissors.

You could also use a card stock backing with a clear vacuum formed package for the lue itself. This type of packaging is quite cheap and easy to do. Essentially, you heat up some thin, clear plastic and when it gets soft you wrap it around a mold (your lures shape) through a vacuum action.
