As you might have realized, no jam that comes out of my kitchen is finished until it has a pretty label. The label not only labels (duh), preventing you from mixing up which was which and what was what, but it also instantly takes your jams up a notch on the gift-awesomeness scale. Sure, what’s on the outside doesn’t actually make the inside taste any better, but that’s beside the point.
Unsatisfied with naked jars, I wanted to distinguish my 3 different blueberry jams from one another, but without necessarily designing three separate labels. This mix-and-match system was what I came up with – it’s modern and colorful and incredibly flexible.
Seeing as I’ve yet to offer any canning printables this year (I utilized some stock patterns in my other labels this year and such things come with licenses that prohibit me from sharing, unfortunately). HOWEVER, I do think this ultimate mix-and-match set might just make up for it.
I’ve racked my brain to think of any and all possible fruits and flavors you might use in your canning experiments this summer. Balsamic Cherry? Black Pepper Strawberry? Vanilla Peach Rhubarb? Let your imagination run wild.
Additionally – because my brain-power fizzled out at two full pages of possibilities, I’m asking YOU: what did I miss? Leave a comment and let me know what fruits or add-ins you’d like to see, and I’ll add a 3rd page to the set with your suggestions!
This FREE download is available to you for personal use. Simply download the printable file, then print onto full-sheet sticker paper (which can be purchased online at OnlineLabels.com or locally at most office supply stores). Cut out the rectangles and apply directly to the the finished jars in any arrangement you choose. If you are handy with adobe illustrator you can also re-arrange and re-color the rectangles as necessary. I’ve given you eight of each type but you may find yourself needing more.
Now UPDATED with 4 full pages of labels, including a blank page to write your own!
