Is that what you mean?

The 2.75"x3" ones seem kind of large, but may do well one to a box for boxed
home computers and the like. You get 600 for $83, which seems a pretty good
unit price (that's like 13 cents each), or the classic 0.875"x1.5" comes
5000 for $127 which is around 2 and a half cents each. Unless someone has a
better deal, I might go with them.
