Q: I am searching for interlocking (stackable) plastic jars (1/2 oz - 1 oz), which I can fill with candle wax (no wick used)for customers to smell the different scents. I have searched several sites. I have seen these used before. Thank you for your time.

A: We searched a little too and "came up empty" (container humor). We did locate some manufactureres of nestable jars but they were all on the order of 32oz to 1 gallon. (nowhere near you 1/2 oz to 1oz range)

We would suggest you visit some candle sites as in inside out approach to determining what they industry calls these small interlocking jars. Once you have the right phrase to throw into your favorite search engine you will likely find dozens of sources.


Q: do your jars have lids?

A: Yes, they do; however, they are a seperate item because of the wide variety of options.

Q: Hi, I am looking for a jar for a new cosmetics line I am coming out with and want to try and differentiate my line from other products/packaging currently on the market. I am looking for jars with a 6 & 8 oz capacity. Do you have any suggestions?

A: We have recently added a new set "low profile" jars molded and carried as stock in white polypropylene and natural polypropylene for this exact reason. For many years the packaging industry has relied on similar and time tested size and shape jars for the bulk of their 6 and 8 oz product needs. While these jars are excellent in quality and function we feel that markets could exist that would be better served by a jar with an alternate profile. Our new line of jars (launched this year) have a large fill capacity but an extra widemouth opening (100mm). This serves the products functionality in that it allows the consumer a larger opening for which to get their hand in. This will translate into a more stable base for the jar to rest on, less wasted product, and also a larger size impression. Please let me know if these items sound like they would be of interest and we would be happy to send you some samples!

The jars are our:
6oz 100mm Regular Wall PP Jar
6oz 100mm Thick Wall PP Jar

8oz 100mm Regular Wall PP Jar
8oz 100mm Thick Wall PP Jar


Q: Can I get a sample of your Item#PPIA1203200PPW (32 OZ. Reg. Wall Plastic Jar) and Item #MRPRM120W024 (120 400) White Plastic Cap

A: Certainly. Please contact us at 203-288-3851 with your shipping information and we will send you samples to inspect.

Q: Is your item PPIA 1204000PPW - the 40 oz straight walled container suitable for packaging food? I do have another question

A: Yes, they are made with food grade polypropylene resin. Would you like a sample sent to you?

Polypropylene is durable and is often, but not always, thicker in construction than HDPE counterparts.

There is also a small gain in durability if the problem persists to using an unpigmented or natural resin. Color pigments can weaken the structure very slightly causing it to be more fragile.

Have you considered other elements such as how you are shipping them? The package you use to ship them? Are the shipping boxes made of a strong enough board to withstand the bumps and jars packages recieve in a small parcel shipping environment?
