    Make Sure Your Candle Labels Hold Up to Heat

    candle-labels."Acknowledging the Importance of Heatproof Labels

    When it comes to packaging, some types of items come with pretty standard requirements - most food products, for example - whereas others have more specific needs, such as waterproof or heatproof labels. For instance, bath and body product labels need to be able to withstand contact with water and oils, while the stickers on candles must hold up to heat and be flame-resistant. As well as fulfilling practical concerns, custom labels and stickers need to be vibrant and high-quality in order to catch the attention of consumers.

    Strike a Balance with Custom Candle Labels

    As far as custom candle labels are concerned, enterprises that focus solely on the aesthetic aspect or safety considerations will likely miss the mark. The key is to find a balance between making labels attractive and functional. After all, a beautifully designed candle sticker that isn't wax- or heat-resistant could crash and burn - literally. By the same token, a fire-resistant label that lacks the "wow" factor required to pique shoppers' interest is unlikely to help a company become competitive within the candle marketplace, so the product's sales might go down in flames.

Just such an event is now happening in the electronic cigarette (e-cig) industry, where young children across the country have ingested the liquid nicotine used in e-cigs.

  • Car Window Decals Help Promote Your Company on the Go

    Our custom window stickers and labels will always stay in place and come off cleanly.Custom Car Stickers: Subtle, Yet Effective

    Hiring people to become walking billboards can be a great way to improve your brand's visibility, but what if it doesn't quite fit with your company's style or simply exceeds your budget? Custom car stickers are a more subtle - yet just as effective - approach to on-the-go marketing. No matter whether vehicles are on the move, parked somewhere public while their owners are out and about or sitting back home in motorists' driveways, the decals affixed to them promote your enterprise in a highly visible way. What's more, this type of promotion has the potential to reach a lot of people but comes at a fraction of the cost of other methods of doing so, such as paying for a billboard or chartering a blimp.

  • Do Vitaminwater's Product Labels Amount to Misrepresentation?

    Vitaminwater Facing Legal Action Over Labeling

    Lawsuits contesting claims made on labels are nothing out of the ordinary, but legal action that challenges the very name of a product is a little more unusual.

    A class action suit was recently filed against Vitaminwater by Madison, Connecticut-based watchdog group Truth in Advertising, based on the claim that the product's name is misleading to consumers.

    Despite its healthy-sounding name, Vitaminwater - which is manufactured and distributed by Energy Brands, a privately owned subsidiary of The Coca-Cola Company - contains approximately 30 grams of sugar per bottle, WTIC-TV reported.

  • California Assemblyman Proposes Change to Toxicity Labeling Regulations

    Tightening Up Toxicity Warning Standards for Stickers and Labels
    Often, issues pertaining to the content of product labels involve companies presenting their products in a falsely positive light. For example, businesses may fail to include important information such as the presence of allergens or inaccurately represent their products by making unsubstantiated claims - for instance, asserting that the items offer health benefits that haven't been proven. Recently, however, a California assemblyman set out to address a situation that has resulted in some companies unnecessarily branding their products as toxic - in other words, casting their wares in a negative light when they shouldn't actually have to.

  • Mislabeling Issue Could Sour Maple Syrup Sector

    Lax Controls Over Product Labels Threaten Famous Vermont Industry
    Without stronger product label enforcement by the United States Food and Drug Administration, maple syrup production in Vermont is becoming less sustainable. In fact, some people, including the state's senior U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy, have gone as far as to assert that the industry will be destroyed by impostors - products with packaging that falsely claims the presence of genuine maple syrup where there's none to be found.

    "Unless there is really strong action against some of these people, [the situation is] going to destroy something that's not only part of the culture of our state but is a very important industry in our state and one where some very, very hard-working people, through no fault of their own, are wiped out," asserted Leahy at a recent Senate Appropriations subcommittee hearing on the fiscal 2016 budget, as quoted by the Burlington Free Press.

Celebrators spent an average of $35 per person last year, with much of this money no doubt going toward alcohol.
