We’d like to introduce you to a unique candlemaker we’ve recently had the pleasure of working with called Black Dog Candles. Corcoran Printing was hired to produce custom printed die-cut candle dust covers for their unique candle line. Black Dog Candles is located in Louisville, Kentucky, and we think they’re pretty special. They have been making hand-poured naturally soy wax candles with cotton core wicks since 2006. Their beautifully scented candles are made of 100% soy wax sourced from soy crops derived right here in the U.S. In case you didn’t know, soy is a renewable resource. Soy candles are also more environmentally friendly than regular wax candles. They last up to three times longer and contain 90 percent less soot than other waxes, so they burn cleaner.
Candles for a cause
Now that you’ve learned a little about Black Dog Candles, we’d like to tell you why we’re such big fans. Black Dog Candles donates a portion of all proceeds to various animal shelters where their products are sold. “I have always been a dog lover and have had rescue pets my whole life,” said Kristen David, owner of Black Dog Candles. “We began doing a small fundraiser for our local shelter, the Animal Care Society. What started as my candle hobby took on a life of its own. People loved the quality of the candles, as well as our mission.”
“At the time I had three little black dogs and had learned the statistic that black dogs had a harder time being adopted at shelters. I wanted to bring awareness to that, so Black Dog Candles was born from there,” Kristen added.
She began making candles and selling them at local arts & crafts shows. Soon local retailers began carrying them and business continued to grow. Black Dog Candles is a small business with a big heart. Kristen is still the main candle maker, hand pouring the candles herself. A few other staff members help during busy times with product labeling, shipping orders, and delivering to retail clients.
Supporting shelter animals is a cause near and dear to our hearts as well. Corcoran Printing’s owners have rescued three dogs from three different local shelters over the years. Coincidentally, two of their rescues were black dogs, just like the beautiful rescues that helped give Black Dog Candles its name.
Black Dog Candles
While Corcoran Printing printed custom dust covers and candle toppers for Black Dog’s glass tumbler candles, silver julep container candles, and other candles, they sell many other products as well. Black Dog’s product line includes diffuser oil, room and linen spray, soy wax melts, and sampler candle sets among other products. Their candle aromas are truly unique and enticing. Candle scents are too numerous to mention. They include apple crisp, autumn leaves, beach house, berry cobbler, bourbon cocktail, cardamom and teak, chestnuts and brown sugar, French Bistro, Havana, kettle corn, mimosa, and wedding cake to name just a sampling.

Candle dust covers – the perfect finishing touch

Candle dust covers and printed candle lids can be die-cut into any shape and size. This includes die cutting holes for multiple candle wicks and scalloped edges or other specialty cuts.
