Canning Lids Download

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!

  1. 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.

  2. Thank you Kendra..These are awesome! I LOVE the green polka dots.

  3. Wow, those are so cute! Thanks!

    So cool! And awesome for jars that you give as gifts.

    That tomato is making me wish my ‘maters were ready! Good work!

  6. WEEEE!!! Thank you! Those are fab enough to finally push me over the edge and buy a color ink cartridge refill. 😉

  7. How pretty, I love them! Thanks for stopping by and telling me about them. Hope to see you in next week’s carnival!

    I’m adding a blurb to today’s roundup (contests but I put goodies at the top).

  8. 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.

    just love the jar lids…mine didn’t print out large enough for the top of the jar…I do cooking and canning, not printing..probaly doing something wrong…duh me!
    They are so cute
    Thanks so much

    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!

  26. Thank you so much. These are really precious!! 🙂

  27. 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! 🙂

  28. flowergal

    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?

    • asonomagarden

      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.

  37. Hi there Kendra! I really love your canning label designs! I made a themed version by scanning in a piece of fabric, colorizing, and adding in some label text. I hope you like the adaptation, and thanks so much for the inspiration!

  38. Thank you. These are perfect!
