The ACW Personal Touch

Our goal at Antique Candle Works is to provide you with the best candle experience possible!  We take into consideration absolutely everything about the candles.  From the natural soy wax, the premium fragrance oil, the cotton wicks, quality glass Mason Jars, galvanized lids, to the beautifully designed labels, everything step of production is done with care.  You’ve seen production behind the scenes and how much thought goes into actually creating the candles and melts, but do you know about what happens after we stock our shelves?

Of course you do!  That’s where you come in.  You might see our candles on Facebook or Instagram and decide to make a purchase.  We so appreciate your support!  But before we pack up your candle to leave our doors, we are not done giving each one our personal, Antique Candle Works touch!

Our first touch goes into how our products are wrapped, and this is also one of our favorites.  Every retail 16oz and 8oz candle are wrapped in an adorable little muslin bag that is hand stamped with the Antique Candle Works logo.  It can be a bit tedious, hand stamping all those bags, but the stylish final product is so worth it!  Our melts and 4oz candles also get their own stylish wrapping.  These are wrapped in a decorative tissue paper that match the color of the muslin bags, keeping with our farmhouse theme!

Each order is then carefully packed with bubble wrap and packing peanuts.  However, before we close up the box, there are still a few more things to add.  Every retail order gets a special, complimentary sample tin that contains a small sample candle of a completely different fragrance you may have never tried before!  This way, you not only receive your favorite scent, but also one that you’ve always wanted to try!  It’s a great way to experiment with new fragrances.

The final touch on each order is a personalized card on top for you to enjoy as soon as you open your package!  These cards give you a little information about what are in your candles, as well as some helpful candle tips that will help you get the most out of your candle.  Also, my favorite part of these cards is that each one is signed by the Antique Candle Works team member who hand poured your candles and melts!  Out of the four current team members, Brittany, Ed, Macey, and myself, Jaycie, it’s fun to be able to see and smell your candles while knowing who put the love into hand pouring each one!

We want you to know how much we appreciate every bit of support you give us, and it is only right to show you this through the care that goes into our candles.  Making sure you receive a great product accompanied with an amazing experience is exactly what we strive to do!
