    Default Pint Jar Cost

    I am currently paying $.72/jar for a regular mouth pint mason-style jar. That is the glass, lid and band. Is anyone doing much better than that and if so, where? Thanks.

    I purchased anchor shocking 1/2 pint jars, and pint jars from them at wall Mart for about 8.00 a dozen. Nicer looking jars, and smooth sides, and semi square jars.

    They were about $9.00 Canadian at Wallmart this year $8.00 last year. Golden Harvest brand. That is the cheapest way to fly for me.

    My Walmart sells the Ball smooth sided 16oz. jars, also for about $8 for a dozen. The smooth sides makes it nice for applying labels.

    Works out to about .67 per jar.
    Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.

    This I got a lot of jars free from my brothers wedding, they used them for table decorations. I ran them thru the dishwasher, got new lids and called it good


    The other option depending on your area may be to look for used jars and clean them well. I am not sure if this is worth the hassle though.

    I pay $4.65 per case of 12. These are a mayo jar with no lid.

    I have customers who return the empty jars but I find that the price of new tops and rings etc., to be almost the price of a new complete jar. Storing and washing them is an inconvenience cost. If you are marketing into a scenario with stringent size and labeling requirements you may not even be able to get away with using the new canning jars. Farm gate and casual sales is a lot less restrictive.

    caps are .11. they also have good prices on bear bottles.
    if you live in the right area they can ship using Spee Dee shipping which is a lot cheaper than UPS.
