Project Description

Porchlight Press was hired to do the branding, package design and letterpress printing for Vancouver Candle Company. Vancouver Candle Company launched in Fall of 2014 with a family of 5 unique candle fragrances that reflected a selection of favourite neighbourhoods in their dynamic city. Combining vibrant and fun colours and an elegant touch of gold foil with the beautifully tactile quality of letterpress printing, we created a product package that was both luxurious and friendly. Their business cards were letterpress printed on a distinctive cotton stock as an extension of their high quality artisanal brand.

Production Lesson(s)

Making mock ups with the actual stock was an important step to test the package for fit and strength for this weighty product.”
