    Where to buy deli cups to sell ball python hatchlings

    I know this was posted before but I was wondering if someone could point me to a website where I can buy deli cups to sell ball pythons, the ones used as a container to take a snake home from a show. I'm doing my first show next month, the COEPE, Colorado Exotic Pet Expo. I should have 60 snakes for sale! I'm getting ready to put in an order for my ARS display cases, and I'm already signed up for a table at the show. So far I have 75 hatchlings, and I'm thinking of holding back 14 as future breeders. The rest will be at the show on the 9th of September, 2018.

    There was a good thread listing all the supplies needed for a show but I can't seem to find that one...

    I'm not sure if you'll find the right ones, but you could try restaurant supply companies. In just not sure if they carry anything that would have the proper veneration holes.

    You have your choice

    TSK
    Ship Your Reptiles
    Reptiles Express
    Superior Shipping Supplies

    You are looking at 6.75 pre-punched if you want to use deli cups also must people selling ball pythons use bags.

    It's a bit of a hassle, but if you must use deli cups that aren't pre-punched, all you need is a little time & a hole-puncher (from office supply store).

    Stack the lids and a good hot 5w soldering iron or back them with an old 2x4 and a 1/4" drill bit. Done it both ways.

    Thanks for all your input! I decided to get the ones from TSK supply. I think all of the hatchlings that I bought here in Colorado came in the same exact deli cup with holes. Plus if I have some overflow on my table I can display some snakes in these deli cups too.
