Canning Lids
As promised, I’ve created a little goodie for you home canners. After years of canning, we have been very lazy about labeling our jars. Sometimes we write a quick Sharpie note on the lids or maybe a short length of masking tape with a ball point pen scribble. But usually they go label-less and we have to guess what we worked so hard to create over the summer.

This summer, however, things are going to be different. I design for a living, for crying out loud, why haven’t I gotten it together to create our own labels? Who knows why it took me this long, but last Thursday was the inspiration. Seeing all of those beautiful label-less jars of nectarines was the final straw. We put so much effort into growing the fruit, then picking it, slicing and canning it and we give them away as gifts so often, it’s a shame to not put a final little touch on it. The perfect gift giving touch. The touch that will make you smile when you go to open it.
Canning Lids
I created four different designs and put them all together on one sheet for you to be able to print them onto Avery Sticker Project Paper and use for your own home canning. I hope you like them and please, feel free to share.

If you are looking to put these labels on Christmas gifts, you might want to check out my new Christmas Canning Lid Labels too!

Download the pdf here and print away my friends! Make sure that when you print them in Adobe Reader, that you set your printer settings a full size. Frequently Adobe Reader will reduce the size of the file you are viewing and make them micro labels!

    Those are adorable! I wasn’t brave enough to tackle canning this year, but maybe next year! It would be nice when I finally decide to, to have those great lids to help me keep everything straight.

    The labels are terrific but the best is your photo of them on your own canned jars. Great shot. All of which makes me want to can more. Thank you.

    Cute idea! I’ll have to pass those along to my mother (the canner in the family). And thanks for the post on my wife’s blog. Who knew we share more in common than the love of gardening! Now if only I can convince my climate to mirror yours a bit more. hehe.

    Oh and maybe she’ll find the time to update her blog more now that more of my folks migrate over to hers. hehe.

    Oh these are SO cute! I just canned some pasta sauce – well, 11 huge quart jars full- today. I was looking for some cute labels, and I sure found them here! I put them on the fronts of the jars because my lids are much bigger than the sticker. It looks great! I can’t wait to give them away to friends and family with these great labels attached. I’ll be posting pics on my blog as well.

    I designed these labels to fit the smaller canning lids, which is why they they seems small on the wide mouth variety. Maybe next year I’ll do a small version and a wide mouth version too. Happy canning everyone!

    i was looking for some jar labes for my brother -in-law who loves to make and can his own slasa and jalapinos. found your web site and i got to say thay are awsome. i plan to print out and put them in a box of empty cannnery jars as a christmas gift this year. that way it wont just be marked with a shaprie. i hope it’s not to girly for him :)

    How fun! Thank you! I’ll have to let my readers know about these. I was just poking around your design site (former graphic designer here) – I’ve always loved the Ravenswood logo and your Aussie version is wonderful! :)

    These are very cute!! I didn’t know how to make them to fit the jar lids, though. I wanted to print on cardstock and cut out so it would match the label. Any suggestions?

      Hi Flowergal. These labels were designed to fit the smaller canning jar lids. Also, Adobe Reader tends to automatically shrink them down a bit, so when you go to print, make sure you click on the option to have them print at full size. Hope that helps.

    These are sooo cute! Thank you. Most of what is out there is so dated. My only wish is that you would do one design per page. I can strawberry and blueberry jam, tomatoes and tomato sauce, and green tomato pickle. So would have a lot of potential waste with this layout. But I love your style. Will be checking back to your site. Thanks! :)

    Thank you! Thank you! I just finished canning and was feeling like you did- all this hard work should have a cute ending. I was thinking of making my own labels…but this is so much better.

    I love this file. Thank you so much for sharing this file with us. I’m sure we will get a lot of use out of it. You know, it could be used for other projects too.

    Hello! We’d like to feature these great labels on our blog… I can’t seem to find contact info. Could you please email me for details? Thank you so much!

  14. sandy says

    Adorable!! What type of sheets do you print these on? Looking at Avery and cant find sheets that are just adhesive with no specific amount of labels on them? Any suggestions???? Thanks for sharing!!

    Hi!
    I love your blog. I’m from Spain and I wanted to download the pdf of these labels. However there’s something strange and my computer doesn’t let me do so. Can you please send the pdf to my email address. Thanks a lot and congratulations for your blog.
