How Your Custom Candle Jars With Lids Are Made

Unlike other candle providers that produce machine-made candles by the thousands, we choose quality over quantity. This means that your custom jar candles are handmade one-by-one by artisan candlemakers and using only the finest materials. The creation of your personalised jar candle starts with you and your design. Once processed, our printers use eco-friendly inks to print directly onto the label and lid, retaining the reflective finish of the lid's metal. Our candlemakers then pour your candle by hand using a mixture of soy wax, rapeseed and coconut oils. After a final quality check your candle is sent for delivery.

Please note: due to the natural way we make your candle, the wax may pull away from the glass due to the different ways glass and wax react to heat. This may give the candle a 'spotting' texture, which is completely natural and there is never more than a hairs width between the glass and the wax.

Care Instructions

While candles can add ambience to any setting, it is important they are used safely. The glass can become hot when burning, avoid touching or moving the glass while the candle is burning. The metal lid is designed to keep the candle clean and not to be used while the candle is burning, this is important as the lid has a card interior. A hot jar may also damage the lid's design. To avoid surface damage always use a heat-resistant surface when using your candle. 

To ensure your safety each candle and box will include a safety and CLP label specific to each scent (as each scent has different care requirements) as well as a list of ingredients. Click the following for the CLP and Safety Certificate of each sizing option:

Design Tips

Your custom jar candles provide two areas of customisation. The lid is printed directly, retaining the sheen of the metal, please note we cannot print pure whites and any white in the image will remain silver, we also recommend using strong colours for optimal definition. You can also customise the sticker, applied to the front of the jar, for a unique and personal candle. Please note: Your sticker and lid will print colour differently, this is to be expected due to a difference of material and the finish of gloss or matt. The sticker will have softer tones, this may be more noticeable with black colours.

Frequently asked questions:

How long do custom candles burn for?

Your custom jar candles use a natural wax made from soy wax, coconut and rapeseed oils and a wick made from cotton with a paper core. The length of burn is up to 36 hours for the 120ml and up to 60 hours for the 250ml.

Are custom jar candles safe to use indoors?

Your personalised jar candle is safe to use indoors, however, it is important you do so safely. Do not leave the candle without supervision and do not touch the glass while the candle is burning. Do not use the steel cover while the candle is hot or the heat may degrade your design.

Is the candle included with the jar?

Yes, not only will you receive a custom jar and lid made from recycled glass, but you will also receive a candle, hand-poured by our in-house candlemakers that comes in one of four exotic fragrances.

Print Guideline

  • DPI-Print Guideline Icon

    What's the best resolution to print in?

    We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally, your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi, this means that no resizing of your file occurs stopping any interpolation.

  • Jpeg-Tiff Print Guideline Icon

    Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?

    For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.

  • RGB-CMYK Print Guideline Icon

    Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?

    We advise providing images in the RGB colour space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best colour results.What does this mean? In your editing software choose RGB as the working space, and assign the image profile as sRGB (full name sRGB IEC61966-2.1)


    What does GSM mean?

    Grams per Square Meter (GSM) is an international standard for measuring the weight of paper or fabric. GSM uses the weight of a square meter (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a given fabric. We class 20-100gsm as light (summer fabrics, gauzes and fine silks), 101-249 gsm as medium (most clothing fabrics) and 250+ gsm as heavy (upholstery fabrics, and other specialist fabrics).

  • Fill Bleed Areas ICON

    What are bleed areas?

    When designing your product, it’s best to make sure that your image is slightly larger than needed. In printing, the extra printed image is referred to as a “Bleed Area” or margin, and it is removed from the finished piece. A bleed area acts as a buffer for slight inconsistencies in the manufacturing process. however, it’s important to fill your bleed areas completely, or you may end up with white, unprinted strips along the edge of your finished product.

  • Transfer-Print Guideline Icon

    Do you print on garments a customer supplies?

    Unfortunately not. All our garments are printed on flat fabric and sewn into finished products, which gives a better-finished result and all-over print. We test meticulously so that we know what gets the best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation paper to order, so if you have access to a heat press you can press your fabrics or flat garments easily.

  • Pattern Alignment Across Seams ICON

    Can you Align a Pattern or design across panels of a garment?

    We always strive for the greatest accuracy when printing and constructing your garments. However, due to unavoidable stretch or movement of the fabric during the stitching process, we cannot guarantee perfect pattern registration across garment seams. We are generally accurate within 2-3mm, which is close enough for most patterns but may show slight issues with detailed geometric patterns.

  • print label option icon

    Can I print my own Labels?

    Most of our garments now come with printable label space for you to add your own company information and branding! If you would like to sew in your own labels, we also offer Printed Fabric Labels here.

  • Eco friendly Printing

    How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?

    With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfilment.

Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, all measurements may vary slightly.
