How Custom Cardboard Candle Boxes Help in Business Growth

Candles are one of the most popular household items today. Ever since scented candles became popular, demand has only gone up. Keeping up with this demand was proving difficult for already existing brands, so new ones emerged. With new brands emerging every day, there was an increase in competition, leading to the emergence of cardboard candle boxes.

Why Choose Blue Box Packaging?



How Using Cardboard Candle Boxes Can Benefit Your Brand

Cardboard is the primary material used for foldable boxes we see daily around us. From cosmetics to medicines, all use one or another form of cardboard material to create cardboard boxes. Some benefits of using cardboard candle boxes are listed below in detail;

–       Simple and Elegant Style

Cardboard is easy to mold into any shape and withstands that shape naturally. They are simple to use at the client end as well as at the warehouse end. You can print any design, no matter how complex it gets. 

–       Space Saver And Light Weight

Because they are made of cardboard material, they are light in weight compared to bulky boxes. Being collapsible, they can be flat-packed and stowed away practically anywhere.

Types Of Cardboard Boxes Compatible with Candles

There are several options to choose from when it comes to candles.

Tuck End Boxes

Tuck boxes are one of the most used options when creating custom candle packaging. These boxes have two dust flaps on the sides and a top flap that covers and shuts the box. Similar construction follows at the bottom. Being one of the most cost-effective options, this is a hot product.

Hexagon Tuck Box

Were you thinking of creating something unique and out of the “box”? Stop thinking and start creating hexagon boxes to make your candles stand out from the crowd. The benefit of using a hexagon box style lies within its shape. Having six sides, there is enough room to print anything you want

Eco-Friendly Packaging Options

We offer many eco-friendly packaging options for custom packaging in Australia, depending on your requirements. Let your supplier know the diameter and height of your candle container, and they will be able to advise the best measurements for the box. 

Kraft material is said to be the best in being friendly to the environment. As far as box styles go, any box that can be created using cardboard can be created using kraft. However, there are some printing limitations to kraft, like full-color printing. 

Using Add-Ons With Inserts | Safety First

There are so many add-ons to choose from, but we will list some of the most used;


Also referred to as hot stamping, this process leaves a brushed metallic finish on a specific selected area. Some colors used commonly include gold, silver, and copper foiling. Usually, the brand logo is foiled to enhance the candle packaging impression from a distance. 


Inserts are the holy grail of candle protection options available. They can be customized to cater to candle dimensions and keep them safe during transit.  

Using foiling and inserts together will create the ultimate unboxing experience for your end customer. They will always come back to your company for more.
