For packaging, we reuse the tissue paper and 100% bio-degradable corn peanuts which come with our beeswax sheet shipments from our supplier.

 

The shipping labels are direct thermal labels which can be curbside recycled along with the shipping boxes. Made from 100% recycled paper, we are able to recycle the release liners of the labels.

 

The packing tape is unreinforced (no fiberglass) Kraft paper tape with a natural gum adhesive that can also be curbside recycled.

Candles

How many types of candles do you have?

Currently, we have four different types.
B'day - burn time 15-20 mins each, 2.5" high, 0.25" diameter and weigh 7 g for a set of 7 candles.
Votive - burn time 3-4 hours, 2" high, 1.8" diameter and weighs 32 g.

Pillar - burn time 4-5 hours, 4" high, 1.2" diameter and weighs 32 g.

Taper - burn time 4-5 hours, 8" high, 0.8" diameter and weighs 32 g.

What are your candles made of?

The candles are made from 100% Pure Canadian Beeswax and contain cotton wicks. The natural and ivory candles contain no dyes, while the rest contain only non-toxic dyes.

Why do two candles of the same color have different shades?

As the beeswax is 100% natural, the sheets are subject to color variances as they can be part of different batches from the manufacturer and yes, the bees too.

Why do some of the candles have a white hue on them?

The oils from natural beeswax form a white ‘bloom’ on the candles and can be removed by gently wiping the candles with a cloth. This white hue is an indication that the beeswax is pure.

What about your labels and business card?

The labels and business cards  are made at home using a laser printer and Cricut Maker® on 24lb FSC certified paper and Kraft cardstock respectively.

Do you offer wholesale/ bulk discounts?

This can vary depending on the size, color availability and urgency of the order. Please send us an email at ginkgocraftstudio@gmail.com or through the Contact form with your order request and we can go from there.

Can I burn the candle straight out of the box?

No, please remove all packaging before burning.

What do I place the candles on while burning?

Place on a fire resistant surface (preferably candle holder) and keep it away from anything flammable, children and pets.

Do the candles drip? If not, then why are they dripping from the sides?

Generally, the candles are drip resistant but can drip just like any candle.

There can be different factors as to why the candle is dripping from the sides, when the room temperature is warmer; the wax will be softer and will melt faster than it can burn and in turn there is more melted wax than the candle can hold.

 

Possibility of candle tunneling; this happens when only the center of the wax around the wick melts and burns downward.

 

The candle is not on a level surface or is in the path of a draft/ wind.

How long do I burn the candles?

Burn a minimum of 1 hour per inch in diameter or until the wax pool has reached the edge of the candle.
