Protective Packaging for Candles

Get Started


The right packaging solution is key to ensuring your candles reach your customers in one piece. Great Northern Fiber Interior Packaging is custom-molded fiber that boosts your business’ efficiency by saving you time and money. Molded fiber is also a sustainable and environmentally friendly packaging solution that satisfies current packaging market trends and customer preferences.

As a member of Amazon’s Packaging Support and Supplier Network (APASS), we are trained to support Amazon’s Frustration-Free Packaging standards. We can also test and verify the integrity of your packaging with our in-house International Safe Transit Association (ISTA®) certified laboratory to assure the protection of your candles in transit.

Cost Savings

Molded fiber candle packaging is a cost-effective alternative to common packaging solutions like Styrofoam® and plastic. It helps your business save on labor costs because it’s easy to assemble and does not require additional material to ensure the safety and security of your products. The easy assembly process enhances workflows without compromising packaging quality.

Molded pulp packaging is also cost-effective in that it:

  • Reduces labor costs because it’s faster and easier to pack and move
  • Uses less packaging material, thus decreasing shipping costs
  • Is customizable, resulting in fewer damaged products and limiting returns and negative reviews
  • Features stackable designs requiring less storage space for your inventory
  • Does not require extra shipping materials like Styrofoam

Fully Customizable To Your Candles

Fiber Interior Packaging is fully customizable to fit specific candle shapes and designs perfectly, preventing any movement or breakage during shipping.

We create custom-shaped molds from a pulp slurry by mixing used fibrous materials such as newsprint and corrugated boxes with water to separate the fibers. We then pull the slurry through a custom-designed mesh to form the fibers into the desired shape. Finally, we dry the packaging material in an oven to evaporate the excess moisture and bind the fibers in place.

The result is a packaging mold that perfectly fits the shape of your candle. Place the corresponding piece at the bottom of your shipping box, put your candle on top, and position the other piece on top of the candle.

Our thick-wall molding technique produces packaging inserts between 3/16 and 3/8 inches thick with a smooth interior and a rough exterior.

Here are the summarized benefits of customizable candle packaging:

  • The mold accounts for the unique contouring of your candles
  • No raw material is wasted
  • You can save space with compact and efficient packaging
  • It helps you keep the products safe from damage in transit by holding the candles in place and protecting them from exterior damage

Sustainable And Environmentally Friendly

Molded fiber packaging is made from fully biodegradable and recycled materials, such as newsprint, paperboard, natural fibers and corrugated cardboard. Biodegradable and recyclable materials are better for the environment because they’re easily broken down and able to be repurposed for other uses.

These materials are also 100% curbside recyclable, meaning consumers can easily return them to the recycled paper stream. Our entire process is sustainable, from the types of material we use and the processes we employ in production to the methods of delivery we choose.

Custom molded fiber packaging also boosts sustainability for your operation because it’s made to fit the product, which reduces the amount of packaging used per product, and reduces the amount of materials entering landfills every year. It also reduces the environmental impact and carbon footprint because it is lightweight and compact, making it more sustainable to transport than other interior packaging options.

Protects Products During Shipping

With molded fiber protective packaging, we craft the fibers to fit individual products. One thick-walled mold fiber insert is placed at the bottom of the shipping box, the product goes in the middle, and the other insert is placed on top. Then, the cardboard box is taped to secure the product during shipping. The thick walls are sturdy and provide sufficient cushioning, blocking and bracing for candle jars.

Our custom candle packaging solutions are safe and secure for candles of varying weights. They’re well-fitted to your products to reduce shipping damage complaints among clients, safeguarding your reputation. Our packaging is strong and durable to protect your product from external shocks.
