Free Printable Mason Jar Labels

on January 16th, 2012

So lately I find myself drawn again to jars (old obsession). And since I have bought quite a few of them recently, a revamping of the pantry was quite in order, complete with colourful labels and pretty patterns. Which I now offer to you for free download, should you feel the spring clean itch.

UPDATE: It seems this post was rather popular – if you like the labels and can think of other things you’d like designed for download leave a comment below. Time permitting, I might add to the collection.

If you use them, send us a pic, it’s always nice to see designs put to good use. And if you can, a link back is always much appreciated :)

  • I have included a whole lot of pantry items, but if you have some stuff I have not provided a label for, no worries: there’s quite a few blanks in there as well.
  • There are two types of printables:
    1. Labels (circular, they fit the wide mouth mason jars but they can also be applied on the side of most jars or Tupperware containers)
    2. Bands (they will fit most jars, unless they are very large in diameter)
  • mason jar labels
  • I used both the labels and the bands for the 500ml jars, and only the labels for the 250ml jars.

How to apply labels

  1. Print the required designs on a nice thick stock. I used a semi-gloss photo paper.
  2. Using a rounded cuticles scissors for the labels and a straight craft scissors for the bands cut out the shapes.
  3. Apply glue to the entire back of the label and on the ends of the band (you probably don’t want to glue it all over, it will be difficult to remove when you need to wash the jar)
  4. Apply the label or the band and fill the jar with the pantry item of your choice!

The download links are at the bottom of the page, after the jar images. Have fun!

    i am having trouble downloading these it says i don’t have the right program or something. I saw these on the Today Show this morning and fell in love with them. Could you possible tell me what i am doing wrong?

  4. Kenneth Barron says:

    I saw the episode on the “Today” show about the jar lables. One major problem, I had to watch the transscript for the actual site address. During the show, it was shown ans and the person delivering the spot said I tried to find a method to inform them of the error but was not successful. I may benifit your busness to ask them to do a correction (if they will). I will be using this site in the future because we lable over 4000 quarts of apple butter each year for the local volunteer fire department.

    Hi there- I downloaded the Labels but don’t see your cute one for Strawberry Jam – did I miss it somewhere? I’ve tried your other Labels and they are so adorable – Thank you for sharing! I’m letting everyone know about your amazing site! (PS: I need to send you a picture, but I did not see where to do that). Thanks again!

  12. Beautiful labels! Thank you so much!

  13. Brooke says:

    what kind of adhesive do you suggest using? I have never done this before and want to ensure I use something thta will work well. Thank you so much!

    • limeshot says:

      Hi Brooke – I used regular craft glue, but I suppose a spray glue would make it easier for you. You can buy either from art supply stores or online.

  14. Brigit B. says:

    I loved the font you used. I would like to use it on cloth napkins, aprons, etc. Could you share which one you used in a private email.

    thanks! these are awesome~

  16. Izy says:

    Hye all.. WOuld like to thank a million to limeshot for providing these templates..
    Will be using it for my wedding jar favor with marshmellows inside..
    To those who might need to print something on the labels, you can use a rubber stamp.. Print the blank labels and stamp your name or wordings on it..
    But please be sure that u use it for personal not for commercialise items.

    Just found you via Becky Bakes, LOVING THESE, THANKS! can’t wait to check out the rest of your site!

  18. Ashley says:

    What about using the label images for Christmas Cards/Tags on Christmas Presents (for any type of present) and then hand addressing the To: and From:. Is that okay? If so, do you have any labels already setup for something like this?

    • limeshot says:

      I think that’s perfectly fine, and a marvellous idea. I don’t have anything already set up in that sense, I most likely will do something more Christmassy for that purpose.

  19. Sandra says:

    Thank you SO MUCH for creating these and making them available to us. I just saved the files and looked at them — they are lovely! I *just* bought 18 mason jars for storing dry beans and grains, and now, thanks to you, they will look lovely!

  20. BEAUTIFUL designs! Love them all! Thank you… will be using these soon with some fall canning we plan to do.

  21. Susan Geary says:

    Instead of using glue, use a glue stick! It’s not only inexpensive but when the jar is empty and you need to remove it, it comes off easily in less than 30 seconds by running hot water over it.

  22. [...] adorable? And there is no stickiness left on the jar when you remove the labels! Yay! Here’s where Lady L found them, via Pinterest of course. BUT I’ll not digress and gush over how I love using Pinterest to [...]

    Hi, I tried downloading the files for the jam jar labels without success.
    When I download them Adobe Reader States:
    Adobe Reader could not open ‘._labels-p4-blanks.pdf’ because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been damaged (for example it was sent in an email attachment that wasn’t properly decoded)
    WELL, I know the example is not true as I downloaded them from your website. I have plenty of time but I’d like to use these labels for the wedding favors at my son’s wedding.
    thanks for any help you can give me.

    • limeshot says:

      Hi Lane – you didn’t wait for the fiels you download completely (hence the underscore in the file name). They are large files, so you have to give them a bit of time to finish downloading.

  25. Erin says:

    Can you tell me how to WRITE on the labels on the computer and THEN print them out?
    All the pics posted (ex: pickles by Liz. How’d she do that??) have such neat, printed writing on them which I love.
    Also, it would be much easier if these were printable on actual sticky (Avery for example) labels, instead of having to individually cut each and every one. I would definitely pay for something like that!

    • Sarah says:

      Thank you so much for linking up to my blog. I LOVE your mason jar labels and use them for all of my jam :) They make the jars so beautiful and elegant :) You are so talented!!

  27. Domestic Diva North says:

    I am so excited to find these via Pinterest! I canned a lot of jam and peaches this year and still have a bunch of things to preserve and I love the idea of these labels – so adorable! Wish my handwriting was cuter so that I didn’t have to mess them up but it is better than what they have right now!!!
