Design Luxurious Candle Packaging, Boxes, and Labels
When selling your own homemade candles, how you package your products will play a good part in generating sales and encouraging repeat purchases.
To make a lasting impression on your customers, you don’t just need a pretty design for your candle packaging. It would be best if you also had durable, high-quality packaging to protect your candles from dents and scratches.
Customizing your candle packaging comes with many benefits. When you create a custom design for your candles, you can:
- Craft a professional look for your own brand
- Secure your products while they are in storage and during shipping
- Include all the information you need your customer to have, such as burning instructions
- Differentiate your products from others in a craft sale, an online marketplace, or on display with eye-catching colors
How to Design the Best Packaging for Your Candles
Whether you’re a seasoned e-commerce business owner or a hobbyist trying to market your homemade candles for the first time, you can always learn something new. Here are candle packaging ideas and tips on how you can ship your products in style.
Choose the Right Kind of Packaging
You want to make sure that your product is shipped safely and securely. To minimize the damages that your product may receive while in transit, it’s a good idea to order custom-made candle boxes that fit the size and shape of your candles.
Our custom candle boxes come in single-layer cardstock or multi-layer corrugated cardboard. We recommend cardstock for lighter items, so if you’re selling tiny decorative candles or a small set of tea lights, the cardstock is the best choice.
For heavier candles such as votive candles, the corrugated cardboard is ideal. While the printed colors on cardboard are not as bright as when printing on cardstock, you can still design it to showcase your visual brand.
Prepare for Extreme Weather Conditions
Are you shipping your candles in the summer? Some pillars and votives can melt under extremely high temperatures, so make sure to prepare for that when you pack your candles. Some businesses choose to freeze their candles before shipping them out, but this can lead to deformity or cracking once the candle melts. To avoid this, you can use frozen gel packs to keep the products cool.
Take Care to Cushion Your Candles
Even when you’re using glass or tin containers to ship your candles, it doesn’t hurt to add an extra layer of protection to your packaging. Use bubble wrap or a corrugated bubble to prevent too much shifting while the products are in transit.
Remember: The Packaging Design is Part of the Experience
Don’t forget to customize the packaging of your candles. This is the first thing that your customer will see when they receive your shipment, and that moment has to be memorable.
You can add a personal touch by using a ribbon with your branding to wrap the box. Another way to add visual appeal to your packaging is by using decorative tissue, custom address labels, and packaging stickers that will captivate your customers.
Don't know where to start? You can use our online design tool to create your candle box from scratch. Use the calculator to input the specifications of your box, then click “Design Your Box Online” at the bottom of the tool.
You’ll be directed to an online 3D design builder that shows you a flat layout of the box and a 3D preview of your design.
