I would like to have a custom-made cereal box for a project. Anyone know any place that could do this kind of thing at a reasonable price? I've been looking online and can't seem to come up with much, and I don't want to do all the design work myself (even if I could, I don't know how to get it on a cereal box). Thanks.

Physically making it shouldn't be a problem - a good print shop ought to be able to print it onto a big sheet of light card, then you just cut it out, fold and glue it. Check with your local print shop - they may have certain print size restrictions or only accept data files in certain formats.

The actual design will require someone to sit down with Photoshop (or whatever) - I'd suggest they start by disassembling and scanning a real cereal box, using that as a guide for the replacement graphics. Shouldn't be that hard - photograph a plate of cereal, fill the rest of the box with a big logo and the usual meaningless advertising waffle.
