I love these jars, but im seeing a lot of people having issues finding the right wick. If youa re using the Candle Science wick guide that is your problem. They are way off suggesting CD18 for 464 wax in this jar. Now I know FO type and percentage plays a role, but you should only have to go up or down one size if CS’s wick testing was on point before they made this suggestion. I found success with CD10’s and CD12’s, which I later would find put every other candle supply company suggests for this diameter container. Not sure about ECO’s though.

Our Amber Straight Sided Tumbler Jars have a translucent amber coating on the outside of the jar, giving the container an amber-hue for an added vintage flair. The translucent amber coating diffuses the candlelight inside the container for a softer glow.

So, these would be perfect however, out of twelve, one was broken (That can happen not upset) and every other jar had whole streaks where there was chipping or scrapes missing of the amber color. Giving one a quick clean got rid of alot of the dust and just revealed more clear glass. I will not be using these for customers. (This was a test order). If they every fix the chipping issue, I'd happily buy again.
I love these glasses my customers loves them but they chip horribly
I think these jars are great. They are a nice size with a good height and diameter. I have not experienced anything wrong with them.
I noticed that my jars are also chipping (so far i think there are two of them like that). You can't see it once you pour the soy wax but i hope CS improve the quality since i like these containers. I found something similar from Candlewic with much cheaper price so we'll see which one is better!
I used these for my candles but noticed brown flakes on my counter. I don't feel comfortable selling these jars to customers with the chipping so I can't use these, otherwise, I really like them from an aesthetic standpoint.
Hi! Thank you for leaving your feedback. I'm sorry to hear that your jars are chipping, that is certainly not normal for those containers. We would be happy to help resolve this issue for you. Feel free to reach out to our support team so we can assist further!
I purchased the ECO14 wicks for this container as this is the wick i usually use for this size and shape. I had some tunneling even thought the flame looked good. I purchased the ECO 16 which burns much cleaner and solved this problem. Their customer service is great and suggested the ECO 16 when i called and asked questions. I appreciated the help in making my candles burn the way i like. My customers are use to a clean burning, low waste and this is what i got. thanks guys for your help
I love these jars. Sleek and beautiful. Although some people aren't liking the inconsistency in the paint, I have no problem with a distressed look. (It's not that often though). It gives character. But if you're looking for total perfection, then these may be a little tricky. I love the size but make sure to look at the size before purchase in case its smaller than you hoped for. Also my labels are stuck! Haven't had an issue with them coming off. Same for my wick stickers. Iv'e never used the discontinued version, but spray paint on the interior doesn't sound pure enough for soy candles. I'd imagine chemicals burning off in my candles.
I really like these containers. I’ve been using these in all colors for gifts as I work to perfect my candle making. I also use the discontinued amber tumblers for testing and the 2 Oz status jars for samples. I will say I found out when I first started that some glass jars may have a thin oily film on them that resists the application of labels and causes glue dots not to adhere. This is the same experience I had when I was working for a company that applied vinyl and screen printing to glass containers. Because of this every glass jar I use is sprayed with a degreaser, rinsed with water and dried before I use them. I also put all glass in a 170 degree oven for about 20 minutes and set them out to cool a few minutes before I wick them which is shortly before I pour. This way I’m sure they are dry and the glass isn’t cold when I pour.
Great products and I will certainly be coming back for more.
Our labels peel and lift off the new jars that have the color sprayed on the exterior. The old tumblers with were sprayed on the interior did not have this issue.
That new coat on all three of the painted jars are lovely. Very even on every single jar I got. These made very attractive fall candles (:
