Packaging for Candles - How to Package Your Candles Like a Pro.

Candles are meant to bring serenity and tranquility to your customers, so why not make the chore of packaging them as stress-free as possible? Candles can be an integral part of home décor or add a touch of luxury to the home itself. Packaging is a great method to make your products stand out without breaking the bank.

Check out our expert packaging advice for such incredibly giftable items.

Select Durable Packaging
It is critical to select the appropriate packaging when delivering your items, regardless of what they are, but especially for candles. A heavy-duty corrugated box is appropriate if your candles are made of glass. For smaller candles, use a strong bubble mailer. 

Protect Against Melting
When transporting candles, high temperatures are not your friend. High heat may cause your pillars and votives to deform or completely melt. Some e-commerce businesses may freeze candles before shipment, unknowingly causing more harm – as freezing can cause the wax to fracture. Stearic acid is commonly used in candles to raise the melting point, which increases longevity. The type of stearic acid to use depends on whether you're using paraffin or a soy wax candle. You can use regular stearic acid for the former, and palm stearic acid for the latter.

Cushion Your Candles 
The vast majority of candles come in glass or tin canisters. These materials provide a protective layer for the candle, but you may want to add additional padding. Use cardboard or foam inserts in an appropriately sized box to keep the candle from sliding around during shipping - too much movement can shatter the wax, break the glass, or damage the tin.

Are you familiar with the 5 P of the marketing mix?

Product, Packaging, Promotion, Place and Price.

Yes! People's perceptions about your goods are now heavily influenced by their packaging. Product packaging should not be an afterthought if you are running a business in 2022.

In this digital age, where individuals have incredibly short attention spans, it is understandable that they may dismiss advertisements and sales pitches, but your product itself must not be neglected.

Not to mention the fact that your product must stand out on the shelf and in displays to entice buyers to add it to their shopping basket. This is how buyer's journey is evolving, where they pick the product from the shelf by themself or add it to their cart online. Your packaging tells a lot about your product therefore to give the greatest packaging solution we strive to provide our clients with a wide range of customization options as well as top quality to ensure that you don't have to forfeit anything.

Let's understand more about the 5Ps and their importance in modern business

1). Product

Any item that fulfills a customer's demands, requirements, or preferences is referred to as a product. It's critical for businesses to figure out which components of their products impact customer experience and hence purchasing choices. The product's distinctive brand value and different benefits, which must be tailored to a certain consumer group, must be simply comprehended.

2). Packaging

The most significant part of your marketing mix is your packaging. Because packaging is both a stand-alone component of today's marketing mix and has a significant impact on the other four Ps, it's critical to think about your product packaging as part of your entire marketing plan. Packaging acts as a blank canvas for companies to express not just what makes a product unique, but also the brand's overall story. Using packaging in a marketing campaign can help your products attract and get reach to an even wider base of customers.

3). Promotion

How you advertise your goods is referred to as promotion. Promotional activities are those that increase customer awareness of a company. Sponsorships, advertising, and public relations initiatives are all included. Promotion is the link between income and every tactic you employ to promote your goods. Everything comes in the promotion: inbound marketing, direct sales, and PPC Ads. The customer journey map aids companies in identifying consumer motivations, critical events, and possible points of friction during the buyer's journey.   Placement and promotion are intertwined, and there are some similarities with what we've previously studied.

4). Place

The physical locations where your products are offered, as well as the areas where customers have better access to the stuff you sell, are referred to as place. It's crucial to think about how accessible your product is and how easy it is for clients to locate you. When a store uses colour to represent a product's contents or nutritional features, it might lead to it being placed next to other products with comparable packaging. Customers must be able to get the product or service at the right time, at the right place, and in the correct amount.

5). Price

One of the most important factors in a customer's decision is price. The pricing strategy for products and services, as well as how it will effect customers, is referred to as price. Discounts, payment options, credit terms, and any price-matching services given are all considered when making pricing selections. As a result, a marketing plan requires you to price your goods effectively, taking into account not just what your buyers can afford, but also what your rivals are charging.

Common packaging mistakes that you should avoid

It is never too late to avoid common packaging mistakes. 

Packaging your product is one of the main pillars for building a strong brand.

Consider the packaging of your product as a touchpoint where your potential customers get to know about you before actually buying your product.

Listed below are the few points that you need to check before finalizing your packaging design and avoid those mistakes: 

1). Dimensions of product and packaging

Make sure that your packaging dimensions are adequate for the product you are packaging. If it is too large, it will result in you being overcharged for logistics and fulfillment. If it is too small, the packaging can harm / damage your product. 

2). Alignment with Brand Identity

The type of packaging must resonate with the story of the brand. Everyone should be able to tell the type of product just by looking at the packaging itself. Once you check this point, you can see how it influences the buying decisions of target customers.
