Please be aware we are a very small company, and all work is done in the off hours from our jobs. MinionsWeb is a labor of love. We have put in years to start this company from scratch with no assets, to what it has become over the past 8 years.
Since we are so small, we get very very busy from August to November for Halloween orders, and from February thru June from the trade show and regional gatherings we offer our products at.
During these periods we will ship as soon as possible, but we reserve the right to delay shipping 6-8 weeks to meet production demands, paper work from hell, package all of your orders and acquire all the stock.

Wax & wick Candles are a Fire Risk.
Candlelight creates a warm ambiance at parties, restaurants, weddings or simply at home. However, candles are also a potential fire hazard. In fact, according to the National Fire Protection Association, candles are responsible for three percent of all fatal fires and six percent of fire-related injuries in the United States. It's no wonder that home and interior decorators, businesses, churches and public facilities are banning candles and looking for safe lighting alternatives.
Battery Operated LED Candles are a Safe, Realistic Alternative.
Electrical and battery operated candles have been around for many years, but they have rarely been able to replace the soft flickering light generated by a traditional candle...until now. With the advent of the light emitting diode (LED) and advanced circuitry, today's modern battery operated candles realistically mimic the traditional candle. These new flameless, flickering candles are so good, that we often hear from our customers the funny tales of people being fooled by the realism of our LED candles.
Battery Operated Candles are Safe for Children and Asthmatics.
There are many people who would like to be able to enjoy the warm flicker of a candle, but cannot for reasons of health and safety. Children are facinated by candles, and all too often play with fire, causing harm to themselves and others. Our flameless, waxless, smokeless LED candles are safer to have in a home with children than traditional wax candles. Furthermore, our candles have zero emissions, unlike wax candles that fill the air with smoke particles that are particularly troublesome to those individuals with asthma. The battery operated candles we offer are the safe, clean alternative to old-fashioned candles.
Flameless Flickering Candles can be Imprinted.
Our tea lights, votive candles and votive containers can all be custom imprinted with your logo or phrase. Wedding planners should consider our votives as part of a decorative centerpeice, imprinted with the bride and groom's name and wedding date. We offer great bulk discounts and our imprinting is fast and affordable.
