Freeman and Harding for Hexagon jars in reasonable (200 or so) quantities - discount for BBKA members - nicely packaged with lids on.

I ordered mine from The Bottle Company South this year. For the numbers I wanted the prices from Compak, Freeman & Harding (with the BBKA discount) and Bottle Company were all just within just a pound or so. Really didn't find anything to choose from this year.

Check if your Beekeepers association have a shop.
Ours does and they buy jars in bulk and probably with a discount.

It means we can collect jars locally at a low cost

That works out at @38p but prob still better deals available through BKAs.
Mine were @30p for 12oz hex

I can only find those in 8 Oz on their site. Can you put a link up?
I was nervous about them not taking 12oz but as they look small but full to the bottom of the threads they definitely do.

I got the same jars from Bottle Company South, and 12oz definitely fits, up past the shoulder so that the jar looks nicely full.
