For the creative candle-making enthusiast, creating unique labels for your candles is essential to setting them apart from the competition. In this blog, we’ll give you some tips and tricks on how to create eye-catching labels that will make your candles stand out in a crowded marketplace.

How to Make Candle Labels

Step One: Choose Your Material

When creating unique candle labels, the first step is to pick the best material for your product. We have a selection of materials that can help you create labels that are as unique as the scent. Texture is an ideal way to entice your customer to pick up your candle. Though luxury candles entail pricier materials, you do not have to sacrifice quality when creating the perfect label. When deciding on the material, consider both the look and feel that you want for your brand.


Step Two: Measure Your Candle Directly

Once you have decided on the material for your candle labels, the next step is to ensure they will fit your candles. It is important to measure the circumference of your candle packaging directly and ensure that your labels will be large enough to fit comfortably. It is also important to consider the size of the text that you intend to use on your label; you want to make sure that your message gets across clearly. Additionally, if you are using a wrap-around label, make sure to measure the height of the candle packaging as well. When it comes to candle labeling, accuracy is key!

Step Three: Make Your Candle Labels Speak Out For You

Once you have determined the shape and size of your label, it's time to give your candle label the personality it deserves. Your label design, among other items that make your work yours, tells the world about your art. Every color, font, name, and structural choice should be considered in order to create a label that speaks out for you. Your label is what is going to sell your product when you are not there Take your time on this step and ensure you are accurately creating something that represents you or your company. You can also look to existing products or labels for inspiration if you have trouble coming up with ideas. Once you have designed the perfect label, you can move on to the next step in the process.

Step Four: Upload Your Logo to Sync Your Brand's Color Palette

Once you have your design ready, it’s time to sync your brand's color palette. Make sure your colors are consistent throughout your materials. This is a great way to ensure that all of the elements of your candle label are uniform and speak to your brand's overall look and feel. You can then use the colors to decide on a background or other visual elements you want to include in your label.

Step Five: Apply the Same Design Across Packaging and Marketing Materials

Creating a cohesive look for candle labels is essential to ensuring that customers recognize your product on shelves and at markets. A consistent design across all your packaging and marketing materials will help your customer identify your brand more clearly. Applying the same design to all your products will also ensure that the identity of your brand is remembered and associated with the same quality and style. This can be achieved using the same fonts and colors in all your labels, wraps, and tags. By adding your logo, you can also make sure that everything is recognizable at a glance.


Creating the perfect candle label does not have to be a difficult process. Take it one step at a time, and ask for opinions from those closest to you. Take their advice, but never sacrifice your original, unique vision. Having great candle labels will help you stand out and grow your candle business!
