Artist-Designed Labels: Why we work with artists

· · Comments

From the very beginning, the mission of Standard Wax has been to bring art into your everyday. I love creating products that you look at and use on a regular basis - things that aren't considered precious or priceless. 

That's why working with artists is something that's near and dear to my mission, both professionally and personally. If I can promote the work of someone that's making the world better with art, then I've stayed true to my reasons for starting this business. Plus, when you buy an artist-designed candle, I give back a portion of that sale to the artist. So you're supporting two small, creative businesses with one purchase!

Our Manifesto:

We believe that design makes the world happier, that creativity sparks joy, and that art can be found anywhere. 

We believe that a day at the museum can fix just about anything that’s bringing you down.

We want to live in a world where your home feels like art. Where creating peaceful and beautiful spaces is within reach.

We refuse to follow quick trends to put out more of the same crap you can get anywhere. 

We want to empower you to create something stunning that inspires you to see the beauty in the world.

Join us on this beautiful mission and bring art into your everyday.

Today I want to share a closer look at some of the artist-designed labels you can find on our custom candles and custom room sprays. You can always shop the Standard Wax website in two different ways: 1. Build Your Own by choosing your favorite vessel, scent, and label combo or 2. Shop curated designs in the Quick Ship section. Both options offer ways to support artists - a portion of all artist-designed candle sales go back to the artist, so you're supporting two artists with one purchase!
