Hey guys i am looking for about a dozen 1/2 pint paint cans with the lids. I have searched high and low online but not really needing over 200+ cans. or either one gets the “must order $100.00 minimum”..

What am i to do with 200, 1/2 pint cans…goodness.

Where has the customer service went to in America that was so readily available in the 80s…come back 80’s and never leave again…

does anyone know of an outlet whereby i might order 12 of these cans and have them shipped to eastern NC?

Heck at this point i’ll take used cans.

Try your local paint store, auto parts store that mixes paint for body work and an auto paint supplier. They will have cans and may be willing to sell you a few. Hope that helps.

Here is a great shop that I have purchased from. There is a minimum order price, but if your looking for bulk, you really can’t go wrong with it:

I really do appreciate all of the genuine help and concerns in regards to such trivial matters. But i have looked high and low for some half pint cans, thus the quest for help.

I will probably end up purchasing from Spartan Packaging, seems to be the best deal yet.

Thanks for everything, Chris

I have purchase from Spartan as well. They were really slow on the shipping, but other than that it was a good deal.
