Custom Candle Label Printing

Elevate the look of your votives, candle jars, or candle tins with custom labels. Aside from strengthening your brand identity, personalized labels can also make customers fall in love with your candles at first sight.

Custom candle labels can also be used at events like weddings, birthdays, and other special occasions. Give them a personal touch and create a design that will suit the occasion.



Create Eye-Catching & Branded Candle Labels

Candles have a long lifespan that requires labels to be equally durable and heat resistant. When not in use, candles can be displayed indoors, making them great conversational pieces when friends and family visit.

Candles look the same to customers, that’s why labels play a significant role in making yours stand out. Consider the following when creating custom candle labels:


1. Label Shape

Rectangle, square, oval, and circle are tried and tested shapes that work for most designs. Arch, hexagon, heart, starburst, and custom shapes are more eye-catching but need to work hand-in-hand with the artwork to shine best.


2. Basic Information

Some candle labels have minimalist designs. Even though you want to keep your candle label clean, certain information should always be present. This includes the product name, your company, candle weight, and contact details.


3. Candle-Specific Details

Are you selling scented candles? Make sure to add the scent to the label so customers can choose according to their favorite scent profile. Also include the type of wax used. Some people prefer soy wax candles over beeswax. Another thing to add is the projected burn time, so people would know how many hours the candles will last.


4. Fire Safety Warnings

The National Candle Association (NCA) requires candle manufacturers to add three graphic safety symbols on labels to represent:

  • Burn Within Sight
  • Keep Away From Combustibles
  • Keep Away From Children

Although the NCA did not specify where these symbols should be, a good practice is to put them where customers can easily see them (e.g., cover label or side label).


5. Personal Touches

You can also include short messages, dedications, or pictures – anything personal will mean a lot to the person receiving your candle.

PrintRunner's candle labels come in different sizes. From tiny 2” x 2” to large 12” x 17”, there is surely a dimension that suits your candles. We also have different label formats to choose from:

  1. Cut-to-size – comes with a bend-and-peel backing that protects the adhesive from air and moisture. Because cut-to-size labels need to be peeled one-by-one, they are more suitable for small label projects and for handing out to customers.
  2. Roll – printed and rolled so they can be applied continuously by hand or with a dispenser. Since these labels don’t have any backing that needs to be peeled, roll candle labels are more practical to use for high-volume applications.
  3. Kiss-cut labels - individually cut and are available in custom shapes. These labels are not cut all the way through like cut-to-size, so you still have a bit of the backing paper intact for printing your logo.
  4. Sheet labels - contain up to 30 stickers per sheet. With sheet labels, you can print multiple designs in one page if you choose custom shapes.


Proper Candle Label Placement

Where should you put candle labels? For votives, the labels are usually placed on the body of the candle. For candle jars and tins, they are best placed on the container itself. If the container comes with a cover, it’s a good idea to put a label on that as well. Label placement matters not only in brand identification but also for safety reasons. Keep in mind that not all candle labels are heat resistant. If you put them close to the heat source, there’s the risk of catching fire.



Choosing the Right Candle Label Material

We offer a variety of materials for your custom candle labels that work well with any candle. However, if you are going to stick the label directly on the candle, we recommend BOPP because it can withstand temperatures up to 1,500 degrees Fahrenheit.

On the other hand, white vinyl is recommended for customers looking for a waterproof option. The ultra-smooth and high gloss finish makes the colors in the design stand out but difficult to write on.

Gloss or Matte lamination also adds water-resistance to labels. Gloss lamination gives labels a shine that captures attention, while matte lamination makes colors appear subdued and elegant.

“I ordered five different label designs for my candles and all of them came out great! The colors are amazing and bright! They are such high quality and offer the best prices I’ve found among the three different companies I’ve used. Customer service is incredible. They reply right away and we’re very helpful fixing a mistake I made before printing my labels, then I received them early! Definitely my new label supplier!”
