Tumblers jars


 Share

Recommended Posts

I sell more tumblers than anything else. Quite honestly though sales have really slowed down with the money crunch so many people are experiencing.

I can't afford to lower the price since Libbey tumblers are so expensive, especially with the metal lid I use.

I use a clear 2x4 label. I make my label only using 1/2 of the label. Then I copy and paste it onto the other half of the label. I cut with scissors and have two perfectly sized labels for the size of the tumbler. I save the label and then create new ones when needed. My customers always comment how they love the look of my tumblers and how much they dislike jelly jars. I use jelly jars for wholesale customers and or for customers who want to pay a little bit less and are ok with the look of the jelly jar. I know this sounds like a lot of work, but once you get the system down; its a piece of cake. HTH.

I too use the tumbler (14 oz)and they get a great response! I added silver spa lids to them as well from the Scented Nest. Very chic.... we are adding a box to finish off the packaging as well for spring. Just need to find one I like. Lots to do!! My tumblers go for $28.00 ea. but we also have apothecary jars in 3 sizes for folks who want the "yankee" look rather than the "Seda France" look and I have different labels for the tumblers than the apothecary jars too.

I have a successful tumbler with a silver lid but I keep my price down by using a reasonably priced middle man. The Scented Nest is about 25cents a tumbler high and their lids are almost twice the rate from other common distributors. Having ordered once from SN, I can personally tell you that I have never been raped on shipping like I was there. Paid almost $20 on shipping for a 3# box that was about as big as 2 reams of paper stacked with no reply from the co when I questioned it.

In other words, tumblers can sell well and you can keep your prices down by doing some research and not settling for the highest, easily found price. ;)

I have most of a case of the Crisa tumblers left over from my previous candlemaking days (just got back into it) and I was just debating over whether to tackle testing these again or resort to masons of some sort. I like the idea of the clear lids; thought I was going to have to package in cello bags. Ick.

Anyhoo, questions: I'd also love to know what everyone charges for the 7.5 oz (I bought these so long ago I have no idea what I paid) and also wondering what wicks are working for everyone? I realize there will be wild differences in wax, but I have tried like 6 different wicks in these things and can't ever get the "perfect" burn. I think the thick glass keeps the jar from getting warm enough to help melt the wax, so I always have hangup. Whew...that was a novel, and I totally hijacked this post! Sorry! :o

Here is a place that sells silver lids. This is just one they have a whole section.

I don't know WHY I never went here before... and they are on the east coast!!! I love that Libby/Madison jar, I just wish they had clear lids, but the silver is classy as well. And this helps to keep all of my items in one theme and I can have travel tins and smaller tumblers, when needed.

Awesome- you guys rock!:yay:
