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 :)

thumb Free Printable Mason Jar Labels


  • 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!

    These are beautiful! Thank you so very much for sharing!!! I would love to see quinoa, arborio rice, and steel cut oatmeal added.

    • limeshot says:

      Quinoa and arborio are great ideas – will do when I get a bit of spare time. Never heard of steel cut oatmeal though, goes to show what a lovely thing an international community is :)

    I love these, thanks so much. I wish I could type names on them, but I will for sure use the pre-labeled ones! Thanks again!

  8. Mandie says:

    how do i get the variety that i see on your site.. these are so cute and i can’t wait to use them on the canning that i am doing this summer.. thanks so much for this ! was trying to find some online with very little success.. can’t wait to use!!

  15. chris says:

    adorable for end of year or holiday teacher gifts. Fill jar with candy/muffin/cookie or brownie mix with caption “Thank you for being so sweet.” / “to the sweetest teacher ever.”/ “Thank you for a sweet year.” love, ______
    I’m off to make mine…

  16. Kate says:

    These are fabulous! I hate my own handwriting – have you come up with a word document we can use yet? For my pantry items I laminated the labels to keep them from being damaged by fluids.

    • limeshot says:

      Sorry Kate – I will never come back with a Word version because you simply can’t design stuff in Word (can you tell I hate Word with a passion? :)) As I suggested to another person above – you could use some transparent labels just to print the text and then stick them on top of the actual label. And if you laminate them they really won’t be visible.

  18. Deborah says:

    These are beautiful! You could sell these on Etsy as downloadable files! There is a woman (Whisker Graphics) that sells editable downloadable files where just the text area is editable and the label part is locked. I’d pay for these lovely basket weave patterned labels if the inside was blank and I could type my own text in. (If you are willing to do that, please let me know as I’d be interested. I’ve used the Whisker Graphics tooth fairy kit over and over, as you can imagine! ;)

    • limeshot says:

      Hi Deborah – nah, I like giving things away for free :) Plus trying to figure out how to embed a font licence into an editable PDF gives me a headache. I’ll stick to my design work for making money and will share this kind of stuff for free. I appreciate it’s not everyone’s cup of tea as you can’t edit them, but it’s still better than having to pay for them, in my view.

  19. Jennifer Hall says:

    I love these designs! I’m making strawberry jam and while I see that label in your photos, I can’t seem to find the label to print. Am I missing it somewhere?

  20. Bonita says:

    Can you please tell me how I can print the labels They have multiple labels on the pages and I don’t know how to select one to use, I really would love to use.

    THank you

  21. Valerie says:

    Pretty! Thank you!

  22. Karen says:

    These are amazingly adorable. I wish I had some canning jars that needed labels right now, but I haven’t had my first garden harvest yet. I can’t wait to use them!

  23. Theresa says:

    These are wonderful, thank you for sharing!

  24. Wow thank you for these, in the current economic climate i have taken to home made preserves and food stuffs as gifts for birthdays, Christmas, or little thank yous and these labels will make a fab addition giving that slightly more professional touch!

  25. Jaclyn says:

    Thanks so much for the fabulous labels! I was wondering if you have the strawberry jam label available to download? I love the one in your post, but didn’t see it when I downloaded the files. Thanks!

    Thank you so much for creating these beautiful labels and thank you even MORE for making them free! You rock! :-D
    In case you are interested-here’s a link to my post about your labels:

  31. shereen says:

    they’re so pretty!! thank you
    but are they password protected?
    I couldn’t open the downloads :(

    • limeshot says:

      Hi Shereen – They’re only password protected for editing, you can open the PDF in Reader and print them but you can’t edit them. Understandably, I don’t want the artwork reused by other people without my consent.

  32. Amy says:

    What kind of glue did you use to attach the labels to the glass? Thanks.

    • limeshot says:

      Hi Amy – just regular craft glue. You have to remember these will not last if placed in a dishwasher, so when I need to clean the jars I just peel off the label and replace.

  35. Tkleigh says:

    Thank you so much for the labels, they are so cute! But I have a question on the blank labels, is it possible to use the computer to label them and print out instead of having to hand write on the labels?

    • limeshot says:

      Unfortunately no, they have been designed in Illustrator so they are not editable. But I find they do look nicer when handwritten, it adds to the charm somehow.

    • Stacey R. says:

      I had the same question. I was going to use these on Mason Jars for a Bridal Shower I am hosting because they are JUST SO SO CUTE, but I can’t type the names. I wish I had nice handwriting. LOL

      • limeshot says:

        Hmmm, another option would be to but some of those transparent labels, print the text on them then stick them on top of the labels. They wouldn’t be visible, really, and you can get the best of both worlds.

  39. Mollyjack says:

    These are lovely labels. I was wondering if I could use them for some jams I am making to sell at a Mothers Day stall at my son’s school? They look so pretty I’m sure they’ll appeal to the kids to buy as a present for their mum!

  40. Kari says:

    Thank you for these they are beautiful. I am having trouble finding out how to fill in the blank labels, I am trying to make a good behavior jar, and jars to hold crayons, markers etc and would rather have it neatly written with the computer rather then my sloppy handwriting. Anyone know how to do this?

    • limeshot says:

      Hi Kari – unfortunately they are not editable, but what you could do I suppose is run the sheet of paper twice through the printer: once for the label and once for the text (which you can set up in Word). If I manage to get around to it, I might put together a Word doc that maps the text exactly.
