The Final Word on how to Setup your Humidor

Congratulations on the purchase of your new humidor! Your humidor will easily store and properly maintain your cigars for a lifetime with very little maintenance. Simply follow these instructions…

  1. The first task is to “Season” your humidor. Soak a new dish sponge in water and wipe down the entire cedar interior (you can also use a spray bottle if you have a larger cabinet humidor). Apply the water liberally as this will ‘kick-start’ the humidor into properly humidifying your cigars by impregnating the wooden interior. Let the cedar dry for only a couple of minutes so that you do not lay your cigars on a wet surface.
  2. Submerge the humidifier(s) into a container holding enough water to completely cover the humidifier. Leave it submerged for at least 5-10 minutes. Remove, shake off and wipe excess water away and place into your humidor.
  3. Often the humidity level is fine, but the hygrometer isn’t. This is because analog hygrometers (those that come stock) are only accurate to +/-10%, whereas digital hygrometers are highly accurate. These can be purchased on Amazon for under $10 (just search for “digital hygrometer”).
  4. Humidity should be at approximately 70%. Anywhere between 65-75% humidity is acceptable. Refill the humidifier once humidity falls below 60-65%.
  5. Put your cigars in the humidor, and that’s it, your humidor is now ready!

 

Frequently asked questions

My humidity will not reach 70%, what can I do?

This is the most common problem with humidors, and most of it can be attributed to extremely dry climates or simple fixes. There are several reasons why this may be happening.

  • Your humidifier in insufficient for a dry climate. To remedy this, simple add in another humidifier. This is the problem about 95% of the time. Boveda packs (which we carry) are a simple and effortless way to do this.
  • Certain humidifiers take in water more easily than others. This can be resolved by submerging your humidifier for closer to 30 minutes and in a deeper container. This will exert more water pressure on your humidifier-forcing more water into it.
  • If you have a cabinet style humidor you should consider installing simple weather stripping available at any hardware store around the edge of the door. This prevents humidity from leaking out.
  • If you have a cabinet style humidor it might be time to upgrade your humidifier. The industry standard is made by Cigar Oasis. We sell all of their products at wholesale so let us know if we can help.

How to pick cigars for your store

Obviously your demographic is the most important element in determining what cigars you will bring into your location. But with that being said, a good array of various price points is the key to increasing sales. No matter how wealthy you think your clientele is, you will always have someone walk in who is just trying cigars out for the first time and won't want to drop $20 a stick. And even if you think your area is lower income, cigars are an affordable luxury and people like to treat themselves on occasion. So make sure you have some high end treats for them!

Packaging works!

Whenever you have a choice, find a cigar that comes in a fancy tube of some sort (glass or metal). These will always outsell cigars that are just in cellophane. Plus they make great gifts too so stock up heavy on tubed cigars around the holidays. But our suggestion would be to just have as many tubed cigars as you can find because they simply always sell better. 

Brand names exist for a reason!

Indeed they do. Even if you want more affordable cigars for your location let us help you find the ones that at least have good brand recognition. We all know big names like Montecristo, Cohiba, Romeo y Julieta, Macanudo, and Partagas so make sure your customers are drawn in quickly by the names they recognize. Now, if you stock a decent amount of cigars (like over 20 boxes) then we would definitely encourage you to spread out to more boutique brands and we are always happy to help you make those selections based on what's hot now.
