Wholesale confectionery is one of those topics that you find most info on online, not just wholesale Candles but also the industry as a whole. There are so many questions that you might have, and it can get confusing. There is no right or wrong answers when it comes to this industry, it’s all a matter of preference. So here are some things to ask about wholesale Candles and get the information you need.
To begin with, how do you classify them? Most of us think of standard, mass produced Candle wax as being custom scented. The truth is that you can have any type of custom scent created when buying wholesale Candles, not just standard scented ones. Custom scented Candles tend to come in smaller jars or tins, as opposed to the standard sizes that are used in mass production. Some customers prefer to purchase custom scented Candles in bulk, which is also something you can do. Many of the big online confectionery stores carry both types, so if you do a search online you will probably find a store selling both types.
Do you offer custom blends? This is an important question to ask the wholesale Candles you sell. If they don’t offer something that you want, you may want to look somewhere else. Some suppliers specialize in creating custom blends for their customers.
Do you give information about the soy Candle wholesale program you use? Many companies only briefly mention the program on their website, if they do at all. Other companies go into great detail about the benefits of using the program. If they don’t provide much information at all, you might want to think twice about purchasing from them. They may be offering a discount, but if they’re not able to offer any type of customer service or information about the soy Candles they sell, you should look somewhere else.
Where can you buy wholesale Candles? You can purchase your Candles directly from the manufacturer, if they have one, or from a retailer who carries the same brands you do. Buying directly from the manufacturer is usually the best deal, as the manufacturer will allow you to create your own custom blend of Candles.
What is the difference between a handmade Candle and a hand-poured Candle? Hand-poured Candles are created by pouring melted wax from a container into a mold. A hand-poured Candle is completely different from a commercially produced one. Commercially produced Candles use a wick (a wick is simply long thin ribbon), a heat source and a commercial grade melt and pour process.
The melt and pour process is not available for the creation of hand-poured Candles, so they must be made with a natural soy wax with either a special stirrer or a specially designed stirrer. Hand-poured Candles are usually thicker than those that are commercially produced.
