Printable Canning Jar Labels

Hi guys! Today I'm here to share a fun project that I worked on with me sweet cousin, Joy!

About a month ago Joy asked if I would be interested in working on some canning labels with her. If you check out her website, Imagine Joy, you can see why I was so thrilled with the idea! Joy does the most amazing calligraphy, and is one of the most lovely and talented people I know, so I jumped at the chance to work with her. I was happy to come along for the ride and provide my feedback, as well as to work with her to turn her beautiful artwork into a free printable document, but Joy was really the mastermind behind this project.
These canning labels will definitely help turn your homemade goods into super cute gifts! All you have to do is print them, cut them out, and label them with the contents of the jar. Then, just lay the label on top of the flat lid of your jar, and screw the ring band on to hold it in place!

You can print them on plain printer paper, or if you want to get fancy, buy some pretty card stock and make them even cuter. I think they look amazing on kraft colored card stock, but the possibilities are pretty much endless.
So, help yourself to these super cute canning labels, and label away!


And, be sure to check out more of Joy's beautiful work over at Imagine Joy!

Til next time!

  18. Ooo, what a fun idea! I love anything that has to do with canning.

  19. These look super cute! I wonder if there is a way to print the labels in such a way that makes them extra durable. I love the idea of the label lasting through more than one instance of canning into them.

  20. Is there a way to be able to type instead of handwrite inside the labels? I love that I could use them for everything, but I do NOT love my handwriting. Thanks a million!

    1. Hi Jen! Joy forwarded me your email, and we are talking it over to see if this is a possibility. We should be in touch via email within the next couple of days to let you know!

  21. If they're just screwed on to the top of the lid by the ring band, won't they fall off every time you unscrew them or open the jar? Do you think there's a way to glue them on? Just curious! :) I love the project and want to try it for sure.

    1. Haha, yes they will. I like them that way just because I re-use the jar lids sometimes (not for more canning, of course), but if you want them more permanent, you could always print them on sticker paper! Let me know if you have any other questions!

    1. Oh I'm sorry! I just checked and they seem to be working fine. Someone had the same issue yesterday, but they were able to view them after they tried for a bit. I would recommend trying again soon, but send me an email at ladyfaceblog@gmail.com if you're still having trouble!
