An Inquiry of a Candle Box

We are a small candle manufacturer in the UK about to launch a glassware range next year in the UK.  We take receipt of all decorated glassware later this month and are now looking at trying to finalise the packaging supply.


Hoping the attached is self-explanatory.  The artwork is naturally draft from a dimension perspective as it will require modification to accommodate the final box design / material selection.  Please note the template design adopted is not finalised, the current template has purely been used to understand and demonstrate artwork layout and content.

he quantities would be as previously discussed.  We are looking for luxury feel to the packaging and certainly open to any suggestions you may have with regard to finishes etc.

Our initial thoughts are for a clean, simple, contemporary design i.e. white (not brilliant white) with blue foiling for the front text and the horizontal band. All text on side, base and back will require to be printed in CMYK.

Let me know your thoughts and if it is something you may be interested in doing.

See if you are able to manufacture flat pack type boxes with internal liner.


We are a small candle manufacturer in the UK and looking for 3 sizes of candle and diffuser packaging.


Although the packaging is to be flat pack we are keen to present a quality luxury feel to the box i.e. smooth texture white finish, blue foiling and sharp printing.


Blue Foil Paper Box

I have attached a pdf showing the dimensions of the glass containers requiring packaging plus a typical illustration of the artwork design.


Packaging Solution

We have the soft touch paper as your options. It would render a very luxury feel at the first sight, which is pure, clean and pretty. Maybe we can produce some sample boxes first if you are interested.

I thought flat pack candle containers have an internal liner, the weights of the candles and diffusers are…

  • 30cl candle – 0.7kg (700gm)
  • 55cl candle – 1.2kg (1200gm)
  • 100ml diffuser – 0.36kg (360gm)

Do you think the 400gsm will support all of these?

A separate liner would cost a lot more.
I suggest that we use the F flute corrugated board, white liner inside, which is 1.2mm in thickness. Check the box attached.
