Navigating Bulk Orders for Custom Branded Candles

At Marama Candles, we specialize in producing branded custom candles exclusively in bulk, catering to the unique needs of each client. Understanding the diverse requirements of our customers, we have set the minimum order quantity at an industry-leading low of just 10 pieces. This flexible minimum order policy positions us as a competitive choice for branded gifts, making custom candle branding accessible to a wider range of businesses.

Pricing Structure: Achieving Value Through Scale

The cost of our custom candles is directly influenced by the order volume. For a standard 8-ounce glass candle complete with branding and packaging, prices range from approximately $17-20 per candle for orders of 20-50 pieces. For larger orders of 300-500 pieces, the price per candle drops to between $10-12. This pricing model reflects the economies of scale, as larger orders reduce our production and material costs, enabling us to pass those savings onto our clients.

Streamlined Ordering Process: From Concept to Creation

Our order process is meticulously designed to ensure your branding is perfectly represented. The journey begins on our website, where you'll find a feedback form on each product page or site-wide. Here, you can upload your logo and provide contact details to receive initial design visualizations and logo placement options, along with an accurate quote based on your specified quantity.

Following this, we proceed to create a physical sample of your branded candle, dispatching it alongside fragrance samples for your approval. This hands-on approach ensures your complete satisfaction with the final product.

Understanding Production Timelines

Production timelines vary significantly based on order size, seasonality, and design complexity. The period leading up to Christmas is particularly busy, and we recommend placing orders by August or September to ensure timely delivery. Typically, producing a batch of 50-100 candles takes around one working week, while orders of 500-1000 pieces require about 10 working days from sample approval. Additionally, the initial phase of design acceptance, visualization, and final sample approval generally takes one week, depending on the project's intricacy.

Customization at Its Finest: Scent and Design Selection

Our extensive array of candle designs offers something for every preference, with easy integration of your logo. For those seeking a more tailored approach, we can develop bespoke combinations of lids, boxes, and logo designs. To aid in scent selection, we provide fragrance samples, highlighting current favorites like ripe berries with woody undertones and unique notes such as pistachio.
