Include Warning and Safety Tips.  It’s crucial not to forget that a candle is an open flame, which may always cause the potential risk of a fire-related accident. Candle warning labels are widely applied for candles, candle containers, candle jars, candle tins. Cost-effective custom sticker sheets are perfect for all types of candle making and marketing projects, reminding people to be cautious when selling or taking them as personalized gifts and promos. Candle warning labels may include well-known safety rules: burn within sight; keep away from combustibles; keep away from children. Additionally your candle labels should also warn about simple candle safety tips, such as 

  • not to burn a candle near something that could catch fire,
  • always keep an eye on open flames and before going out or to bed, extinguish all burning candles,
  • under your candle jar put a nonflammable surface, such as a metal sheet or ceramic plate,
  • never ever burn a candle, when you smell gas inside or outside your room or house,
  • put the candles up somewhere so that pets, children, or adults can't accidentally bump candles over in the dark.

Basic Information and Details About Your Candle Company: Now that your candle labels include all safety and warning rules, it’s highly recommended to include some simple information about your company, that is to say the name, logo, contact information, candle scent and candle details. Most important information your candle label can't afford to miss is your company name and logo. Take these in the front and center part of the candle label. Not a secret that all you want your customers to learn about your brand, should be placed in the very middle of the label. Cause that's the way how your target audience will learn to associate your unique product with your brand. Accordingly, it helps to boost brand recognition, trust and loyalty. Next, be assured that your target audience knows what the candle smells like. It's not a box of chocolate to let them guess what's inside. Spell it out noticeably on the label.

Today’s people are always curious what they pay for. Before deciding whether to buy the product or not, they carefully check the ingredients on the internet. Beeswax, soy wax, palm wax, gels, coconut oil, synthesized waxes and so many more may be used in the candle making process. Candles burn into the air we breathe. Your potential buyers have the right to know what exactly has been used in the candles. So, clearly mention the ingredients that you used for that specific candle. 

Candles are perfect gifts. Whether they are supposed to be shipped somewhere or not, your customers should know how much it weighs. Make sure to mention the net quantity of the contents in ounces or grams.
