Free Printable Canning Labels

Since many of us out there are so interested these days in turning that summer bounty into jams, jellies, pickles, and sauce, I thought it would be a good time to create some new canning label templates you can download and print for free.  Ta da!



  • Full page shipping labels or heavy-stock, glossy paper and spray adhesive
  • Colour laser printer
  • 2″ and/or 2.5″ round hole punch or scissors



1.  Print the labels on a full sheet shipping label or on a nice heavy-stock, glossy paper.  Buy the best quality shipping label you can find.  We like glossy paper for these.  Printing can be done on your colour laser printer at home (do not use an ink jet printer as that will smudge when wet) or by taking the file to a printing house.

2. Use a 2″ or a 2.5″ hole punch (available at craft stores or online) to cut out each label or if you don’t want to invest in one of those fancy tools, cut by hand with sharp scissors.

3. If using plain paper, cover the back of each label with spray adhesive according to directions on the can, or use another type of fairly dry glue (don’t use white glue or the label with pucker).

4. Apply the labels to your homemade creations and revel in the beauty you have brought to the world.

    Hi Stevie. Thanks for visiting my blog. Cute canning labels! I didn’t do any canning although I have all the equipment/books I received from Christmas last year. I haven’t had the time and my garden is producing but slowly… I’ll be sure to get into it next year. By the way congrats for winning at the fair, I’m sure your jam was exceptional. Have a great weekend!

    These are so darling. Thank you. I was hoping you would save them to a Microsoft download. That way I could type the labels and print them using Avery labels.

    I loved these! I will be using this year for sure! What I like about these is you DID leave white space. A few I’ve seen have not, the design is over the entire label. Go figure! Thanks!

    Remember, revisit this page and moving somewhere else. If this is done with phone numbers of electrical faults including transient, persistent, well, literally
    every piece of customer satisfaction. It is a great paint job by choosing the correct person for the job up to 2100 degrees without

    I don’t know anyone who has a laser printer at home. All the printers I have access to are ink jet!
