    You should buy them thru a printing company. I get mine for cheaper than that and they have my logo and info on them.

    Unline is the cheapest I have found around $20. They don't have a huge selection, just number 10 I think.

    Yea guys, I know I can get them cheaper online etc....

    My point was about the inflation in price.

    Get them online from OfficeDepot.com. They ship next day for free if you spend $50 or more. They do not match their own online prices though, so don't try. I've ordered a bunch from them lately they seem to be cheaper than Staples on these types of things.

    Thanks for the tip, yea they seem to be around 30 bux.... I am just going ebay for now on 1000 for the same price as 500 at staples and free shipping.

    I have been using Staples for 10 years and this is the first time I found a price rediculous.
