How to package gel melts


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hello. 
 

I’m new to gel wax melts. How do you package gel wax melts? In a foil zip lock pouch? Resealable cellophane bag? Or if I wanted to make individual different scented gel melts to do a sample box, would I wrap them individually & then put them in an individual cavity plastic container or could I put them as is? I hope that made sense. I attached pictures. Please help!

It depends on a few things,

first, what is the look and feel of your brand? 
 

then I’d look at the durability of the melts.  If they scuff easily or dent/crack/smoosh, durable packaging like boxes or tins make sense.

 

where will you be selling them? If in person. How will they be displayed? Hung? On a table? In a basket? People are ruthless with stuff at shows. Make it fast and easy to see, sell, and restock. 
 

finally, what price point are you looking for? Packaging drives price quite a bit.

They’re gel wax melts. I just don’t know how I should package them. I’ll be selling them on my website & at pop up shops (i.e., Farmer’s Market), not hung but on a display stand on a table. I’m not sure how to price them. Do you know how I can determine that? Anything would help. Thank you!

I would be inclined to box them. I have. It experienced gel melts and can’t predict how they handle changed to temp and bumping around in a normal shuffle of shipping. 
 

I usually ship an item to a friend on an extreme climate then have them ship back to me to test if my product can reasonably handle the chaos. 
 

Pricing  I usually work 2 directions:

 

step 1: total cost x at least 4 step 2: pick a target price and see if that allows me enough profit. 
 

not many of my prototypes make it to market simply because they don’t pan out to be profitable enough.
