  1. I'm going back and forth with myself on how I want to package my pillar candles. I seem to remember someone on this forum mentioning that they shrink wrap their pillars. I'm all for that. It's cheap. It's effective. It's fast, easy, and uniform looking. But before I get started shrink wrapping all these pillars, I have a concern I'd like to express. If the candle is packaged in that manner, how can the customer smell it? How do you approach this when you set up your display at a show? The customer wants to smell it. I want them to smell it, too. But if its all sealed up in plastic, how can they without ripping the thing open?
  2. We have partnered with Soap Equipment to create a line of stock, printed boxes designed specifically to fit their soap molds. Printed on the same high-quality paper we use for our custom box packaging, these boxes are printed in soft colors with subtle, repeating patterns designed to blend in with your labels. We also added a soft touch matte coating to the box, a finish typically seen on higher-end product packaging. Our stock soap boxes increase your soaps perceived value by implying a quality, luxurious product resides within. These boxes are very economical, and retail ready – you just load and go! This program is new and constantly evolving. Our boxes currently fit a 2” x 1” x 3” soap bar. While the selection is limited right now, we will be creating larger boxes designed to fit bigger molds shortly, but we need your feedback on sizes, colors, styles, and if possible, particular molds, to determine where we go next. We can also supply labels to match these boxes – just ask us! We are looking for someone who can reach out to the soaping community as a Box Co-op representative to provide samples and gather information regarding trends, interests, and concerns in the community. In return we will provide soap packaging for your soaps. Please let us know if you’re interested. We’re looking to create stock soap boxes that fit the most used soap molds in the community. The Box Co-op has already partnered up with Soap Equipment to begin creating these mold specific boxes. BUT… we want to hear from you! What molds do you use? How many have you collected over the years? Hands down which is your favorite? Do you pick molds based on their cavity size, brand, or design? What other molds should we look into targeting? This is a new program we plan on rolling out so there are lots of kinks we’re working through. Your feedback is imperative to helping us settle this dust so we can launch!

  4. The Box Co-op is introducing a new line of box packaging to fit your soap molds. This is a new program that will be expanding as we move forward. These designer boxes are produced on the same high-quality paper we use on our custom packaging – only these are specifically designed to fit your soaps. The boxes are printed on a heavy thick paper with a spot matte UV finish that complements the printed pattern on the box, which adds dimension, depth and an elegance to your soaps. Our boxes currently fit Soap Equipment’s Single, Triple, and Quadruple 2” x 3” Loaf Soap Mold; using a 1” cutter, the box will fit a 2” x 1” x 3” soap bar. We realize this may not fit your soap, but as the program expands, we will be adding different sized boxes to fit existing molds. Please let us know what sized boxes you’d like to see, and what molds to target next. We look forward to hearing from you.
  5. I'm gearing up for spring fundraising and have plans to carpet-bomb schools and other non-profits with a sample candle and color brochure. I needed to find a nice box to hold one, 8 oz. candle with room for foam/bubble wrap and the brochure tucked in for good measure. ULine is having a sale on a variety of great cardboard boxes until 1/13/19. 4"x4"x4" mug-size box is .23 cents with a minimum of 100. Larger sizes are also reasonably priced and on sale until 1/13. Also found "variable depth" boxes - a maximum 8"x8"x8" box that can be scored down to 4", 5", 6", or 7" heights which will suit my fundraiser packaging needs as I sort orders by each seller and each order can vary widely. The other cool packaging I found there were "gable boxes". These fold at the top (think the donut hole boxes) to create a handle. Different sizes that range in price from .37 cents to .66 cents a piece for a minimum of 100. My only concern here is how much these gable boxes can safely hold (think kids carrying candles home on a school bus - what could possibly go wrong?!) I deliver my fund-raisers so I don't need heavy-duty shipping materials, but thought this info might be helpful to some.
  6. I saw this picture of a pillar on Etsy. There are lots of ways you can package pillars, but I like this. What I can't tell from the picture is this: If this is some sort of paper "wrap" that glues to itself in the back, does anyone know a source? If this is a stick on label, what kind of label would you use that would adhere to wax, but still be removable without damaging the appearance of the the candle? I could use either method.
  7. You might think it is too early to talk about Christmas. Before you give in to that very thinking and do away with what this article has to say, do give a thought to that Christmas where you failed to store your ornaments successfully because you didn't hit up any instant ideas or hacks in the short amount of time that you hand to work with. This might sound elementary and basic; yet not coming up with efficient ornament storage ideas is a mistake that is made far too often in the real world. With this writing, we aim to correct that. Read through to the end to find out some inexpensive but efficient storage hacks for your ornaments that can save you many headaches this Christmas: 1: Get Pictures or Take Them Yourself: If any of your friends or family members happen to have cool ornament storage hacks, be sure not to ignore them and even take picture saving them in your digital memory albums. You can download some useful ones from the Internet as well but be sure to have some good ideas saved somewhere easily accessible so that you can use them when required. 2: Make an Inventory for Everything: Making an inventory of all your stored ornaments can be very important. Having stored them in high-quality Ornament Boxes, writing everything that you have down and keeping it somewhere easily accessible can save you much trouble when you need similar decorations again. Also when you lose some and don't have a clue of what you had before you lost it, this inventory can come in handy. 3: Cardboard Divider Boxes: When thinking about storing your ornaments for more extended periods of time, permanent solutions will work best. Readymade cardboard boxes with section divider inserts in them are available from high-quality packaging stores and also supermarkets, or you can DIY this project easily as well. Be sure to produce adequately sized sections for all your ornaments and also use long-lasting, sturdy cardboard materials that are often in the corrugated finish. 4: Combining Cardboard and Plastic Cups: Combining cardboard and plastic cups can produce a very efficient ornament storage idea. Since most ornaments are round in shape, empty plastic cups provide a great storage solution. Taking your cardboard divider idea to the next level involves placing the empty plastic cup in each divider and placing your ornaments in those cups having to find very convenient ornament storage options. 5: Tins of Holiday Ornaments: Who says some of those expensive cookie tins can't be repurposed. If you happen to have large cookie tins lying around in the storage, wrapping them up in Christmassy paper and placing your ornaments in these tins is a great idea. Some of these large cookie tins are quite large in size enabling you to place a lot many ornaments in them at one time. Be sure to wrap them up in festive wrapping papers making them look neat and clean around the edges. 6: Apple Tray Packaging: Everyone can find some empty apple trays made from cardboard or other soft protective materials right! This is one of the cheapest repurposing hacks on our list as well and only involves the old Apple trays. You can place these trays in large wrapped boxes for a beautiful finish when preferred or leave them as they are. Whichever finish you choose, this repurposed efficiently sized ornament storage hack will organize all your ornaments quite nicely indeed. 7: Reuse Your Gift Packaging: All of us will get gifts of some sort regardless of which age group we belong to. Gift packaging provides an excellent ornament storage option when done right. Use all those boxes and wrapping papers along with ribbons and hangers intelligently creating very sustainable ornament storage options that will organize things for you very efficiently. 8: Straight String Lights with Ribbons and Hangers: Got string lights or ribbons and hangers? Instead of storing them in boxes or drawers where they will almost certainly get tangled up, clip them on an empty wall in your storage area or basement. This straight storage will keep them usable for next Christmas or any other festive event of the year. 9: Repurposed Egg Trays and Cartons: Much like the apple trays, egg trays provide a very efficient ornament storage idea as well. Having round shaped egg storage pods in them that are secured with cardboard or other similar softer materials, these will keep your stored ornaments safe and sound for as long as they are required again. You will not have to pay a dime for these as well as these are found in abundance in every household. 10: Coffee Cup Ornament Holders: Empty coffee cups can also be used as efficient ornament holders and storage ideas. Be sure to add some Christmassy designs on their outer layers and enjoy their large sizes enabling you to store and organize many ornaments in one cup. Tie them up with red ribbons creating a fully festive look and feel.
  8. Has anyone used (or considered using) borosilicate glass as candle containers? I remember seeing the glass requirement rules online somewhere, but I don't know for sure that they meet the requirements. Just wondering if anyone is familiar with using these instead of regular Libbey glass tumblers.
  9. Wondering if anyone has suggestions on where to get package boxes in bulk. Not for shipping. i.e. box to pack 6 votive sets. Thanks in advance.
  10. Wondering if anyone has tried using a sublimation printer and a heated mug press to put their design on the outside of the candle container? I've been looking into it, and wondered if anyone here has experience with this.
  11. Hi, I'm just about ready to start selling my jar soy candles online, so it's time to figure out how to get them to people safely and neatly. I'm wondering if I should go the packing peanut, bubble wrap route or maybe use honeycomb paper wrap and brown craft paper. Maybe something else? The candles themselves are not individually boxed, so they need good protection. I'd appreciate any advice. Thanks! ?
  12. I just shipped my second large order and I made the BIG mistake of having my assistant take the packages to the post office, without discussing the prices with her before she sent the packages on their way. I tried to calculate the USPS priority rates beforehand, but I was way off. Way, way, off. Let's just say that I spent $185 shipping 50 candles, and I am wondering how to prevent this next time. I previously shipped 25 candles via fedex two day and used the recipients fedex account and it came to $140, which is also a bummer. Any suggestions for packaging/shipping? Thanks in advance fellow chandlers!
  13. do most of you buy labels that are printed for you by a larger company or print them your selves? i have a really nice canon pixma 9000 Pro mark II printer so i can print them my self and I do think that would be the cheaper route for me since I will be doing smaller batches and cant afford to spend lots of money on stickers and then have them sit around. But at the same time the idea of sending in an image and getting them printed sounds nice. I found Frontier Labels and they seem to do really nice work, i have some free samples coming. Questions: 1) if you print them your selves where do you buy nice quality printable labels (i like thicker paper/ kraft paper labels) 2) if you pay a company to print them for you who do you use? which labels do you get printed? i.e. jar labels or stickers to put on boxes etc.. Suggestions welcome, i would love to find out what you do for your products.
  14. I'm having trouble with my shrink wrap bands for my soap. I decided to package the soaps with clear shrink wrap because well ...they are pretty and I didn't want to cover up the "soap art" with a wrapper. So now I'm shrink wrapping lots of soap today. I want the shrink wrap to cover all except the side ends because its cold process and needs to breathe. The shrink wrap either: melts a hole, shrinks unevenly and doesn't even cover the front and back, is too wrinkled and not as smooth as I had envisioned. My soaps are approximately 31/2" x 31/2". My shrink wrap is approximately 4"x4". So is the shrink wrap too small for the job? Is it the quality of my shrink wrap? Maybe my technique is not good? I try not to blast too high of heat on it. Anybody have any advice for me? Thanks.
  15. Do you re-package wax warmers or re-box warmers if the box comes from a company such as OBI or Levine, or do you keep them in their original carton?
  16. Hey all! I've been searching the web and I was wondering if off the bat you guys knew of any vendors that sell 2 oz lotion bar tubes that were phthalate free? I know WSP says on their site that theirs DO contain phthalates. I wrote to BB and SKS and I probably will not hear from them until sometime next week. Any help is appreciated! TIA!
