Customized Candle Labels

Candle Jars can come in many forms and sizes. Many come in Mason Jars or jars with a lid to smother the candle to extinguish. Common sizes are 2×2 square and circle 6.5w × 3.5h, 4w × 2h, 5w × 6h. Unlike food products, candles only need one label. Nutrition information or other specifications are not listed. Ingredients can generally be listed on one front label.

These sizes are just examples. We can make labels that fit any size you need. You should maximize the layout to minimize waste and extra costs.

The Importance of Design

Get Started Designing Your Labels


Picking the correct paper is easy if you understand why certain papers are better than others.

Paper Type

White BOPP

Basic paper has several advantages and disadvantages. One advantage paper is the least expensive. You can mirror fine materials such as linen, cloth, or other fabrics. Hot foil stamping, embossing, spot varnish, unique shapes, or distinctive tones. White BOPP is the most commonly used, offering a modern look. 

Paper Type

Clear BOPP

As opposed to the old-fashioned look of a typical paper label. Clear film will also allow for White Ink application which stands out nicely on a dark bottle. You can also use clear film to offer precious metal colors. Brass, Copper, Gold and silver.

Paper Type

Rainbow Holographic

Holographic paper is another standout option. Holographic paper will give you label an eye-catching psychedelic appeal. The reflective nature allows light to cascade across the label. If you are going after a less traditional market holographic could offer you many advantages. It also has a very unique look paired with white Ink.


Don't Forget These When Ordering Your Candle Label

Other things that are important when ordering your labels is the application process. How will they be applied, hand or machine? If by machine, we need to know the orientation or cut off to properly roll the labels for machine feed. The orientation of the unwind direction could affect costs.

Finally, It's Time to Pick Your Finish

Laminate vs. UV Coating

Laminates are a material that covers the label and are a thicker and more durable finish than UV coating. This provides additional protection against abrasion since the finish cannot simply be scratched off of the label.

UV coating is a special varnish that is cured during printing by exposure to ultraviolet light. Although more expensive than other finishes, they offer a better longer-lasting product.



Popular in a variety of markets, gloss laminates and UV coatings work great to protect a label’s inks from rubbing off or smearing. Gloss is recommended for many indoor applications as outdoor environments can cause fading to the label.



Available as a laminate or UV coating, matte finishes offer a more subtle effect to your labels with a flat, soft look and feel. Like gloss, matte is recommended for indoor applications and protects a label’s ink from coming off.
