Candles on a cake bring an ethereal quality to any birthday event and blowing candles all at once are a child’s biggest dream. Candle manufacturing increased in demand when people started putting more candles on their birthday cakes to indicate their ages. Candles come in all kinds of decorative shapes and are used for various purposes.
Scented candles are used in homes to create a beautiful ambiance. They can be used in bedrooms, bathrooms or main lounges to reflect different moods. Emitting a subtle, delightful aroma, scented candles like apple and cinnamon can reflect a festive mood whereas the fragrance of lavender and sage creates a relaxing and calm environment.
These beautifully made candles require specially designed candle boxes that keep the candles safe and make it easier for them to be portable. Candle boxes are mostly made of cardboard and are come in many different sizes to accommodate single or mutliple candle packs. We also have a large range of beautiful gift bags if you are looking for an alternative packaging solution with stunning gift wrapping to compliment your product.
PACKQUEEN manufactures a variety of candle gift boxes and sells these candle boxes online. Smaller sized candle boxes are 50mm by 80mm in size and larger boxes go up to 80mm by 100mm. Miniature candle boxes shaped in a 100mm cube form are also available.
The Unique Challenge for Candle Packaging
In these days when technology is increasingly taking over our lives and ever more variable forms of electric lighting are available, candles still have a timeless attraction. As well as their traditional use on birthday cakes and as emergency lighting, they provide a romantic and warm ambience when placed around the home.
Modern candles come in all shapes, sizes and types, ranging from small tea lights to large, often scented pillar candles. These present different challenges in terms of packaging due to the variety of sizes and weights.
The Need for Complete Candle Packaging Supplies
Candles are still sold through traditional retail outlets but increasingly also online and by other retailers. This makes the challenge of packaging even greater because candies have to be transported over long distances and are likely to receive rough handling when they do, making the necessity for adequate packaging even greater.
Tea lights and other smaller candles can often be accommodated in relatively small candle box packaging and may require little other protection. Larger and more ornate candles, however, will need something more effective, as will those supplied in glass containers. Candles are also prone to melting and distortion when exposed to high temperatures and you need to guard against this; otherwise the appearance of the candle is spoiled.
Any candles that are particularly vulnerable should be wrapped in a protective layer before they are placed in a box. Additional packing may be needed to stop the candle moving about and being damaged.
At PACKQUEEN, we provide a wide range of candle box packaging in varieties to suit different sizes and types of candle. They’re manufactured in heavy duty card that is suitable for sending through the post. Most are available as one-piece boxes and are supplied flat for convenient transport and storage, yet are easy and quick to assemble with no glueing needed.
In addition to the boxes, we supply tissue paper and shredded Kraft paper for packing your candles, plus twine and tape to secure the boxes and labels for addressing. We also supply gift bags for small, shop sold candles so have everything you need to ensure your candles reach their destination safe and secure.
Out to Impress
Candle packaging isn’t just about keeping the candles safe and free from damage; it can also help the company’s image if it’s attractive. Our boxes are available in a range of colours and finishes that really enhance the appearance of the product as a whole.
You can buy ribbon and labels to match and can add printing that features your company name, logo and other details. The result is a professional appearance that sets your company apart as a serious supplier that does things properly. As a result, your packaging will not only keep your candles in the best possible condition but may also generate additional sales.
Bear in mind that candles are often given as gifts and are well received and valued by those who get them. So providing packaging that matches the beauty of the candle will enhance the value of the gift and make your customers even more appreciative.
