Introduction of Our New Handy Copper
After much experimentation and redesigning our popular steel
wire 'Handy Match Extender', we are happy to announce that the results were
worth the effort! The new design uses elements from our original design but
incorporates a more durable and presentable tool made from 100% pure copper
wire. The new fire starting tool uses new American made copper wire that is
20% heavier (larger diameter) than the previous steel wire version and due
to the non-corrosive material will maintain the finish better and longer.
The new 'Handy Copper Wire Match Extender' retains the heart shaped love
handle with additional handle designs to follow.
The new design also incorporates a unique tension clasp made
from rolled copper wire that features a hook which offers distinct
advantages over the old design. The hook can be used to set the match
extender on the edge of a jar candle to facilitate lighting the match for
lighting the candle wick. This makes lighting the match safer by securing it
to the lip of the jar candle. After introducing our new design we are making
plans to promoting and selling them through our company website as well as
other venues. Photos of our new Handy Copper Match Extender will soon be
uploaded to our website!

Relinquishing Our Toll Free Number!
For about 20 years the New Millennium Candle Company has
provided a toll free to our customers for placing orders and inquiring about
our products and services. We've maintained this free long distant service
even as the popularity of cell phone plans made phone calling rates more
affordable. Therefore we've recently decided to eliminate our toll
free number access. We will still be available for direct communication
through our business phone line at 715-675-4448. We regret discontinuing
this service but hopefully the changes we are making will make our phone
lines better with clearer static free quality.
New Products and Projects for 2017!
After recently repairing and renovating a 50 year old Santa
Claus candle for a customer in Florida we've posted images of this new
restoration on our New Pics page. With
my recent decision to retire from any outside employment, I've decided to
pursue the development of new products for this company. We
will also begin reworking some past designs that we will be promoting here
and on our ETSY website at the New Millennium Candle Company. Please check
out both of our company websites to keep track of our new and innovative
products. We will continue to offer custom production services to artists
looking for a source of our talented casting skills for unique urethane
resin and lead free pewter designs.
Latest Candle Repair and Restoration
We still continue to be challenged with our custom candle
repairing and restoration services. We recently received a broken bunny
candle that has been part of customer's life for twenty years. The vintage
candle casting was broken in two areas and required numerous tubular dowel
pins to join and strengthen the broken segments. The bunny's broken seams
were filled with colored wax and then textured to resemble the original
bunny hair. Images of the bunny candle before and after the restoration are
posted on our New Pics page as well as on or Custom Candle Repair Services

New Order of
Replica A/C RTU Replica Models for TRANE Manufacturing!
Another order of custom RTU A/C replica models were
delivered to the Florida division of TRANE this month. The original factory
colored urethane resin models were individually cast in a custom one
piece mold with a special core mold which created an inner cavity. There was
also a specially cast detailed bottom plate which is bonded to the base and
encloses the model sealing the internal cavity. The flexible urethane mold was
also modified with a special formed plate which created an elongated slot on the top
surface of the model. This slot can be used for displaying and dispensing
company business cards.
Photos of the unique miniature A/C RTU model are displayed on our New
New Projects for 2013!
With another year upon us, we are moving forward with some
new and interesting projects. We're currently working on repairing a 120
year old first communion candle that was broken and badly warped over the
years. The candle sections needed to be straightened and joined together
with an epoxy glue. The repaired and straightened candle now looks like it
did over a century ago. New pics will soon be posted on our NEW PICS
webpage along with another first communion candle we also just repaired.
Along with this repair projects we're beginning a new custom pewter casting
project for an artist in Florida. The six new charm designs will be formed
in a new mold and cast in lead free pewter this month. Watch for new pics of
this latest casting project on our website.
of Recent Wedding Candle Set using a Couple's Personal Monogram Design!
We recently had a request by a couple in Miami, Florida to
provide them their wedding candle set utilizing their own personal monogram
design. The font type and spacing was copied from their jpeg image which we
used in our candle engraving process to recreate their monogram for their
unity candle and the two lighting taper candles. An image of this
monogrammed wedding candle set is now displayed on our
New Pics page. Please note that this special
service incurs a slightly additional cost to match the candle engraving to
the invitation card monogram.
New Images of
Pewter Casting Project for a Designer in Florida!
New images of custom pewter casting project for a designer
in Florida are now displayed on our New Pics
page. The four original charm designs were cast using our lead free pewter
alloy, prepped by removing the flashing lines, and drilled with a #50 drill
bit for a small jump ring. The finished pewter charms were then submersed in
a pewter blackening solution and lightly buffed to give the charms a nice
antique finish. They were then sealed with clear lacquer to protect the
surface of the intricately carved design. These charms will be available
soon on the customer's website and we'll update her address on our NEWS/INFO
Planning Ahead for Your 2010 Wedding
with a Monogrammed Unity Candle!
Due to the current economic slowdown, we've been undertaking a few jobs
outside of our usual business services. Some of this new work has become
very involved and has even caused some delays in the production of our standard core
products and services. If you will be requiring a custom monogrammed wedding
candle set for a Spring or Summer wedding next year, we would appreciate your orders to be placed
as soon as possible to insure a prompt delivery before your wedding date. We
will do everything possible to expedite all custom orders but some delays may become
inevitable. Thank you for supporting us through these difficult
New Pics of Our Recent Custom Casting
Projects with an Image from Historic Fort Snelling!
After recently finishing the custom pewter casting jobs for our customers
we've posted the new images on our NEW PICS
web page. The completed projects include the casting of military musket
rifles lead flint pads at Fort Snelling for the Minnesota Historical Society
and uniform buttons cast in lead free pewter. The small 1/2" diameter pewter
buttons were created with four button holes during the casting process. The
photo of the uniformed military parade at Historic Fort Snelling reveals
some of the custom work we've done for the Minnesota Historical Society. We
also finished the latest edition of Raggedy Ann & Andy®
pewter figurine collectibles created especially for the national Raggedy Ann
& Andy® Festival in Arcola, Illinois.
The refined modeling of the original crude casting designs is apparent in
the unpainted versions of the figurines. The scope and range of our pewter
casting ability is shown in the examples of these quality custom projects.
New Design Style for Our Monogrammed Wedding Candle Sets!
We recently created a monogrammed wedding candle set for a couple
celebrating their 2008 wedding in Florida next month. The custom ivory
monogrammed unity candle included the bride and groom's first names and we
also engraved their last names vertically on a pair of ivory tapered
lighting candles. We will now offer this unique engraving detail to our
tapered lighting candles for couples who are interested in these
personalized tapered candles for their wedding. Images of this special
ivory wedding candle set can be seen on our

asked us to create a monogram using two script colors. The ivory pillar
candle was engraved with Edwardian Script ITC and filled with Emperor's
Gold (DecoArt DA-148) and outlined with Dark Chocolate (DA-65). This two
color monogram design looks great and we will now offer this unique dual
color detail in the customer's color choices for future unity candle
orders. You may check out the images and details of this new design on our

New Torso Candleholders
Scented Candles for Fun 'n Flirty!
We have been contracted by a company in Minneapolis specializing in
pheromone scented sensuality items to create unique torso shaped
candleholders to add to their website. The candleholders will be
specifically designed to hold a pheromone scented votive candle and will be
marketed under their 'shh...don't tell'
product line. We will be doing all of the creative modeling for
both the female and male torsos, casting them in a fireproof urethane
resin, as well as pouring the pheromone scented votive candles. The photos
of these unique candleholders will be posted on our New Pics
page as soon as they become available.

our new tapered candles on our New Pics page.
Monogrammed Unity Candle Web Page!
With the recent interest of our Monogrammed Unity Candles, we've
redesigned the web page to make it easier for couples to choose the features
and styles available for monogramming their unity candle.
All of our personalized monograms are permanently engraved into the candle
using a special engraving process, unlike other monogrammed unity candles
that use a preprinted clear acrylic label glued to the candle surface. The new
web page gives our customers 9 simple steps in designing and creating a monogram for
their personalized wedding candle. We've also grouped the images of finished
unity candles on another separate web page. If you need any assistance in
creating your memorable unity candle you may contact us by phone, e-mail, or
by submitting an ORDER form.
