Candle Labels

Candle labels are labels that are used to identify and provide information about candles. They can be used by candle manufacturers, retailers, or individuals making candles at home. Candle labels typically include information such as the product name, scent or fragrance, size, burning time, and any safety information. They may also include logos, branding, or marketing messages to help promote the product and attract customers.

The use of candle labels can help ensure that consumers have access to important information about the candles they are buying, including scent, size, and safety information. They can also help businesses differentiate their products and build brand recognition.

Useful Information

Product name: The name of the candle should be clearly and accurately identified, such as “Vanilla Bean Candle” or “Peppermint Essential Oil Candle.”

Scent or fragrance: The scent or fragrance of the candle should be indicated on the label to help customers choose the right scent for their preferences.

Size or weight: The size or weight of the candle should be clearly displayed on the label, usually in ounces or grams.

Burning time: The estimated burning time of the candle should be listed on the label, indicating how long the candle will burn before it is completely consumed.

Safety information: Any relevant safety information should be included on the label, such as warnings to keep the candle away from children and pets, to not leave the candle unattended while burning, and to not place the candle near flammable materials.

Ingredients: A list of all ingredients used to make the candle should be provided on the label, including the wax, wick, fragrance, and any additives.

Manufacturer or seller information: The name and contact information of the manufacturer or seller should be included on the label, such as the company name, address, and website.

It’s important to note that specific requirements for candle labels can vary depending on the country or region in which the product is being sold. Additionally, some businesses may choose to include additional information on their candle labels, such as branding, marketing messages, or instructions for use and care.

Labelling Materials for Candles

Semi-Gloss Paper Labels

Semi-gloss paper labels are a good option for candles because they offer a professional and visually appealing finish that can enhance the overall presentation of the product. The semi-gloss finish provides a subtle shine that can catch the consumer’s eye and draw attention to the product. The labels can also be customised to suit the specific needs of the candle, such as incorporating branding elements, scent information, or other relevant details.

Waterproof Plastic Labels

Plastic Polyester Labels are robust and liquid resistant and can go up to temperatures of +/- 20 degrees. If you wanted to make sure the label won’t be ruined by wax potentially hitting the label, these are an excellent choice. It is important to note not to put these labels too close to the wax tip to avoid them being melted as they are essentially made from plastic.

For extra water resistance, we recommend a gloss laminate over the top to ensure that the print is as protected as the label. 

Transparent Labels

Transparent labels are a good option for candles because they offer a clean and elegant finish that can enhance the overall presentation of the product. The transparent material allows the consumer to see the candle’s colour and texture, giving them a better idea of what they are purchasing. Additionally, the transparent labels can be printed with high-quality images and text, allowing for customisation to suit the product’s specific branding needs. The labels are also more durable than other label options, meaning they can withstand exposure to heat

For extra water resistance, we recommend a gloss laminate over the top to ensure that the print is as protected as the label. 

Bagasse Biodegradable Cane Fibre Labels

Bagasse labels are extremely eco-friendly. Made out of sugar cane waste, and hemp linen fibre, they are the only paper label in our range that are not only biodegradable but also compostable and vegan-friendly. They can really add that extra touch of elegancy with their laid textured feel, excellent for promoting a sustainable product, especially if your branding focuses on eco-friendly packaging.
