Candle Packaging: Spark Customers’ Interest In Your Products

Candles have become a staple in everyone’s homes, and not just for their fragrance. They light up the room and bring life to any interior space. Customers like to collect different scents and sizes, and even buy them as gifts for loved ones. Custom candle packaging immediately communicates quality and luxury, which can draw people’s attention and convert them into loyal customers.

Candle Packaging Materials

From premium mailer boxes to corrugated shipping boxes, we offer a wide range of box styles and printing options you can choose from.

We offer two (2) types of materials for candle packaging: cardstock and corrugated cardboard. What’s the difference?

Cardstock (also called cover stock) is a heavy paper that is much thicker than regular printing paper. It comes in a variety of thickness options, but it is widely used for greeting cards, postcards, and product boxes. Cardstock has a great absorbent surface for high-resolution printing. Enhance your design and protect your packaging by adding gloss and matte coating.

We recommend choosing cardstock for smaller candles. You can choose from 14 pt., 18 pt., and 24 pt. cardstock. The higher the number, the thicker the material.

Corrugated cardboard is much thicker than cardstock and offers more protection and support. This makes them suitable for multiple candles, heavier items, and products for shipping. Cardboard’s surface has more subdued printing results.

You can choose from standard white, premium white with glossy ink, and kraft brown corrugated cardboard material.

Candle Packaging Design Tips

Packaging plays an important role when it comes to a customer’s buying decision. With candles, shoppers will look at the box first before deciding on the scent. This is because candles are meant to be displayed in their homes, so looks are everything.

Keep these candle packaging tips in mind as you create your design.

Simplicity is key. Both your candle and packaging box should keep a minimal style that still stays true to your branding. Customers’ homes have different styles, and neutral colors, patterns, and fonts give you a bigger chance of being selected.

Materials make the merchandise. The quality of your candle packaging should match the integrity of your product. A sturdy box that perfectly fits will not only protect your candles during shipping but will also validate your customer’s purchase.

Choose the right coating. The printing finish can either enhance or downgrade your design. When choosing between matte and gloss, keep in mind that the coating should also match your branding. Gloss adds a sheen that boosts saturation and design details, so it’s more suitable for colorful illustrations and graphics. Matte coating is the opposite, as it diffuses any and shine and adds a subdued effect to color. This muted finish is more appropriate for minimalist designs with darker colors.
