40+ Lovely Canning Jar Labels & Tags: Fuss-Free Downloads

There’s a lot of delightful labels here! Whether looking for something suitable for homemade canned goods (jams, jellies, pickles, preserves, sauces, etc.) or to use as tags for gifts & other pantry mixes, there’s surely something here you can use.

Sizes you need for lids:

  • Small Favor (1.5 oz): 1.5″ Circles
  • Standard Mouth: 2″ Circles
  • Wide-Mouth: 2.5″ Circles

I believe all the round ones I have listed in the gallery below are for standard & wide-mouth mason jars but if you are comfortable with adjusting printer settings, you should be able to shrink the size enough to work with the smaller lids.

If you love a certain design but it’s not a good fit for the jars you are using, you still have a couple options:

  • Print on sticker/adhesive paper and apply directly to the glass (tips for removing them can be found at the bottom of this page).
  • Print on cardstock, punch a hole on top to thread colorful twine through then tie around the glass neck as a tag.

Some of the freebies are editable within the pdf so you can type pertinent information, while others have a blank space for handwritten notes once they’re printed.

Space is limited so only note what’s important:

  • Contents
  • Date contents were processed (month/year)
  • Alternatively, you can instead note the Best Before date or Expiry Date

Now on to the goodies, plenty of great stuff here!

To remove old stubborn stickers & labels, try slathering with peanut butter to loosen the paper. More tips & tricks are found here: 30 Helpful Items To Remove Sticky Adhesive Goo.

If you’re going to use one of the printables as a tag, there are a few decorative choices you can try:

  • Colorful baker’s twine
  • Yarn
  • Ribbon
  • Lace

  • Raffia
  • Jute twine

    Do you know where to get the blank labels to print on? I live in Canada and I have just been to Staples office supply and they didn’t have any. When I used to live in California I got small round labels for my spice jars from Paper Source, but they don’t look like they have labels large enough for jars…

    Any ideas would be appreciated!
