Any sort of box will handle the job. Might be difficult finding actual
canning jar boxes as most canners/preservers save theirs to keep the
empty jars organized.

I have used UHaul book boxes with good success, just wrapped the jars in
enough packing paper to hold down breakage. HTH

I recycled paper reams boxes from work for those piles of jars I acquire. I
really like the pint-and-a-half mason jars that some speghetti sauce comes
in. I always make my own sauce, but some friends gave me several boxes worth
of their jars. I don't know if they would stand up to pressure canning, but
they do okay for bwb.
As always, pass the word amongst your peers at work or the Farmers' Market
or the shops where you do business. Nice place to find extra jars, too.

If you're lucky, maybe you can get your supermarket manager to ask
his/her stockers to hold on to the Kraft and Smuckers boxes; I'm pretty
sure that stuff comes in a case of 12 and if they're still in glass jars
they may be separated by cardboard dividers, too.

Try a liquor store; their wines come in cases of 12 and have serious
cardboard dividers as a rule. If you're looking to store wide-mouth
jars, my suggestions may not work.

If you have a liquor store you patronize, the boxes wine and other
alcohol come in with the dividers would make decent storage and you
could stack the jars two or three high, depending on size, in each
compartment.

I get boxes from the Post Office, you can order these from http://www.usps.com
....I get the 12x12x8 inch Priority Mail boxes...no dividers but they are
very strong. They are totally free, as is the shipping. I've ordered them
online and they've come in as little as two day's time. They've got a nice
variety of free shipping boxes/materials, all free and deliverable right to
yer door.

This is one of my fave "frugal finds"...you could even use the adhesive USPS
mailing labels as jar labels (after cutting them to size) I guess.

Our taxes (partly, at least) pay for this, so I'm not shy about taking
advantage of it. I don't order huge quantities, either, so...

If ya need bubble wrap/cardboard go to a furniture store, they throw away
TONS of that plus other packing materials...they'll be glad to let you haul
away as much as you care to take for free.

I'm sure I saw an episode of "The Simpsons" based on this, where Bart
and Lisa built a mighty fort out of free USPS boxes. ;-)

Since I'm in Australia (and thus don't get free USPS boxes), I use
recycled paper ream boxes as Edrena mentions above.

They're not intended for uses other than mailing through the USPS, so I
would consider it unethical to do this. There's no reason my tax
dollars should pay for your canning supplies.

Yeah. Classico spaghetti sauce comes in square Atlas Mason jars. The ones I
like are clearly marked with levels at 4oz, 8oz and 12oz and there is room
above the 12oz level for another 3 oz flush with the top of the jar, about
15 ozs, perfect size for jams.

When they make these jars, they must brand them when they are at glass
melting temperatures, since all the markings are pressed right into the
glass.

Generally molten glass at the leather stage is blown into a steel mold.
The lettering is in the mold. Bottle and jar makers have been doing that
for at least 200 years. Early on they were hand blown into the mold,
nowadays it's all machines.
