  • Candles are available in a variety of font colours. Some colours are not available due to the design chosen (this depends on the candle design) & different font styles. Contact us if you like a certain design but in a certain colour.
  • Font size will be reduced if you select more than 2 or 3 names on the candle.
  • Ribbon/s will complement the font colour selected unless other colours are specially requested.

    Most designs can cater for extra information to be added on the front of the candle. If this is what you would like the candle will be slightly modified to fit the extra information. e.g. Cross will be smaller or placed on the base of the candle. This depends on the design chosen. You will be notified if this will occur.
