I made the mistake of picking a card for my candle business. And it was a mistake. My candle business card is a disaster. I should have bought a card that I could send to someone as a gift and then send them a photo of the card. Instead, I put the card in my wallet and left it in my car. I spent the rest of the day in my car, looking at this card.
I know what you’re thinking—that I should have just gone to my nearby hardware store and bought a card that says “I’m a candle maker,” and then gotten a candle with that inside. Instead, I did the next best thing—I went to the next-closest hardware store. And then went home and made a candle out of paper. After doing all of that, I sent the card to a friend as a gift.
I don’t know. I guess it’s possible that some people are simply more attuned to subtle messages than others. But I don’t know. Maybe they just read them without thinking about it. I just wanted to get it off my chest.
The problem with candle cards, is that they are quite obvious. Once you’ve thought about the message, you’re probably going to be embarrassed, or maybe even angry. But that shouldn’t prevent you from doing it anyway. In fact, it should help. It might even improve your odds of getting a candle with the right message.
In any case, candle cards are a great way to say, “Thanks for the message.” Its not like youre so much of a pro at this that you get your messages across that way, but if people are reading it they are probably going to pick up on something. Youre probably not going to be able to use it all the time, but it can be just as good as, say, a phone call.
You don’t even have to be a candle-burning expert to use candle cards. In fact, there are tons of variations available that can be printed out on card stock. You can even cut out your own special message from a recipe or a book (or just leave it blank). You will also get a free candle.
You can buy a candle made out of your favorite candle of your choice (in fact, you can purchase a candle made for yourself, but you dont have to have an idea in mind to have it). There are even candle stations that you can buy. The free candle is for the one you make.
Candle cards are one of those items that are usually used on a small scale and are not generally used by larger organizations. But when they were first released in the 90s, they were used by businesses and not just for personal use. Many of these cards went on sale in record time. And at the time this was all said, candle cards were only available in a few sizes and colors.
As you may have guessed from the name, candle cards are a pretty small business. But there are also candle cards that can be made for you by a professional candle maker. They are made to last and to not fade over time.
So how do you figure out how to make your own candle business cards? You would have to design your own image, but you can also use a candle card. You can also find these cards at craft stores like this one or at other people’s houses.
