Milton and Margie's Soy Wax Candles Gets a New Look

Jessica Snively

Ever since I started Milton and Margie's Soy Wax Candles, I've made my tags in the same way: I'd hand stamp and cut out each and every one on paper with different patterns and colors. I know that sounds like a lot of pretty unnecessary effort—it was—but I enjoyed the process and convinced myself that it was cheaper—it wasn't. But this year, I'm trying to streamline my business by treating it more like a business, so spending a night stamping tags is getting cut from my schedule. 

I wanted to keep the signature M and the variety of background patterns and colors, so I made a selection of complementary designs that coordinate with the colors I gravitate toward when searching for containers. I also simplified the logo design for a fresher look. Here's one of the new tags: 

I'm super excited to debut them! They're different enough to retain the eclectic feel, but will unite my line of soy candles across all my container styles. Let me know what you think.
