    Wicking 464 and 6006

    I have only used GB. I will say the throw was better with 464, but hard to sell candles that the tops is starting to melt. LOL

    Wicking 464 and 6006

    I use GB444 I did use 464 to start with but found the melt point to be too low to sell at shows in the summer. I ended up switching to 444. With 444 and a 3 inch tumbler I use either CD16 or CD18. Since it is 464 use can probably get away with CD12 or 14. Hope they helps a little.

    Lids, Dust Covers & Such

    Dust Covers - http://www.westernpress.net/CandleCover.html I have not tried them yet. I saw a recommendation here for them. They are on my to-do list.

    An observation

    @CorgiCaperI use GW 444 for my candles and melts, works great for both. GW 464 would never work.
  5. Anybody use a jar like this? https://www.fillmorecontainer.com/fc53232-case36anchor.html Do you use lids? I was looking at the CS Straight Sided Tumbler but wanted something a little bigger https://www.candlescience.com/containers/straight-sided-tumbler-jar-libbey Open to ideas for something similar or another vendor. Thanks

    Creating LLC info

    In New York it is just $25 every 2 years for an LLC. $200 to set it up plus $5 if you want hard copies mailed to you. Not too bad. Then I just do taxes as if I was a DBA also because I did a "Single Member LLC". Nothing really changes. Though I guess I will find out a year from now. The bank worked out much easier than I thought... I emailed everything to the one girl at the branch earlier in the day, when I got there just answered a few questions, signed a bunch of docs and I was all set up in less than an 45 minutes. Now to change ETSY, and AMAZON, and anywhere where else I have business and banking info.

    Creating LLC info

    The Banks in Buffalo are not too bad. BUT the usually ask 100 questions and want you to know projected sales. Ummm I am selling candles out of my basement... probably avg $1 million in sales each year... LOL (I WISH!!!)

    Creating LLC info

    Just some info for anyone thinking about becoming a "REAL" business. So I had a Sole Proprietor DBA setup for myself, and as I have grown and expanded I slowly began to change my name and wanted to be better protected. As of Jan 3rd I am now officially 716 Candle Co LLC. I used this service - https://www.incfile.com/ I did the "Gold Plan". The $150 I spent (plus $200 to file in New York) seemed like a pretty good deal. Got all my paper work done, and properly filed. I still need to list it in 2 news papers and pay for that. The extra money I spent on the Gold plan is all things I probably could of done myself with little to no cost except for time. I feel like I saved myself quite a few hours by going with the GOLD plan. In New York I created a Single Member LLC. Just applied for my Sales Tax Number and I need to head to the bank to open a new bank account. Updated and Renewed my membership and insurance with HSCG. I think I spent about 2 hours total on all of this. I am sure I have another 2 hours at the Bank (LOL) and a little bit time to deal with listing info in Local Papers.

    Private labels

    Not really. Usually a retailer just want to be able to keystone the price. Meaning double the wholesale cost. Other than that nothing special. Are they doing wholesale or consignment?
