Thank you so much for your very helpful responses! I think I`m going to end up going with overseas manufacturer after all. Last night, my husband and his business partner said that they would like to back me for the first production run. So...I guess I will not be using a US printer - at least not right now.
JoAnn - thank you for this insight on the master shipper box. I am having the manufacturer ship my boxes flat, and I will be assembling them here. This will save on freight costs, as well as protect the box while it is in transit. Do you still think I need a master shipper box, if I will be assembling and shipping directly to my retailers?
sheamama - Thank you very much for the info on your printer! It`s nice to hear that they come so highly recommended. I will hang on to their information, should I need to use a US printer in the future.
