Title: To box or not to box
Post by: Suzanne on August 04, 2011, 08:55:15 PM
I am getting ready to launch the candles and want to take some to Botany Bay.  I am going to have the warning thingumy on the bottom of the candle glass and I have to put the bar code somewhere. I was not intending to box them because it adds to the cost, but I can't think of any other way of doing it. The bar code is not terribly pretty.

Can anyone think of another way of doing it, and does anyone know where I can get suitable boxes?

TKMaxx usually puts their barcode/price tag on the bottom of the candle. Ikea puts theirs right in the middle of the glass and it is a pain to get off!!

Can you fit it on the bottom? Otherwise a box might be the way to go

If it fits on the bottom of the candle that would be my preference as well, otherwise I would recommend a box.  :buttrf:

If you want to avoid boxing, then bar code on bottom with cello wrap and ribbon.

Ok, I'm really drugged atm (long story, later, but broke my ankle yesterday), but I read the tittle 'Botox or not botox'!!!

Yes, if warning and barcode don't fit on the bottom, put the warning or barcode on a tag that can be easily removed.

I'm not keen on boxes at all. Hope you find a nicer solution.  :buttrf:
