Release your Inner Child – Captivating candles evoke memories of home and family

July 11th, 2017

Inner Child Home Fragrances (www.innerchildhome.com), founded by mother-daughter pair Beth and Julia Schillaci, was started after Beth had smelled the scent of the eucalyptus trees from a grove while travelling in Maui. She began to reminisce about what other smells reminded her of places she has traveled, triggering happy memories, which she could share through a custom line of fragrant soy candles. Her goal is to inspire customers to take a break, have fun, unleash creativity and connect with their “inner child.” Even the company logo, based on the Hawaiian legend of Kauila, is a Hawaiian sea turtle “Honu” reflecting the playful nature of the brand.

Important: Notification of Price Increase

May 15th, 2017

Dear Customers,

Over the course of the last 6 months, China has been aggressively purchasing paper scrap that our state-side paper mills use in their manufacturing processes for paperboard used in our packaging and shipping cartons. Most recently, RISI Pulp & Paper Week recognized a $50/ton increase in the base price of liner board in the April 21, 2017 edition due to the changes in supply/demand of the scrap materials. This is the 3rd such increase we have incurred over the past 6 months from our paper and carton suppliers averaging 8% per occurrence. When China’s purchasing last effected the supply and demand within the paper industry in the 1990’s, we received 6 increases in paper and cartons over a 12 month period.

Custom Sample vs Sample Kit — Which one is right for me?

Sample packaging can often aid in visualizing a packaging concept. We offer both a general sample kit and the ability to order custom prototype packaging samples.

The general sample kit contains a variety of packaging styles, with and without food grade liners, and a variety of popular enclosures. The kit is perfect for those who are not familiar with paper tube packaging or are starting the researching phase for packaging, and want to see several options that might work well for their particular product.

Thinking of Mom

February 16th, 2017

holiday-packaging-trioIt’s mid-February and visions of cupid, hearts and flowers are giving way to shamrocks, green beer and hopes of warmer temperatures. While the rest of the world is thinking about next month’s shenanigans, we want to take a moment to focus on Mom. In the retail world, Mothers’ Day is the third largest holiday, next to the Christmas shopping season and Back-to-School time. While flowers and greeting cards make up the majority of the gifts given to mothers, retail products that pamper mom, such as candles, bath bombs and wine, are also very popular and extra thought should be given when planning for your product’s retail packaging for this holiday.
