After spending the time and effort to make great homemade
jars of jams, jellies, pickles, applesauce, apple butter, salsa and
other goodies to eat in the winter or give away as gifts... don't make a
simple scribbled label! With a color printer and these templates, you
can quickly and easily make your own labels! I've done all the
hard work of formatting and adding the graphics. You just need use
MS Word (or compatible word processor) to add your name and print! Or,
if you are in a hurry, just choose the PDF version and simply print it
and stick on your jars!
The customizable template is a Word file, which you can edit. For those less technosavvy, there is a standard generic PDF file for each fruit/veg/etc., which you just print and us, as it.

Obviously you replace "Your Name" with your name! And the right

Square labels: are 2 inches high by 2-5/8 inches wide. There are 15 labels per sheet (3 across, 5 down). These are great for any jar 8 ounces and bigger. They use Avery 6572 (White Permanent multipurpose labels) which works with either laser or injet printers.
Where to buy the label stock - These are very common label sizes, commonly used as address labels. You don't need to use Avery brand; as long as the labels are the same size and layout as defined above, they will work. You can find them at Office Depot, Office Max, Staples, Sam's Club, Costco and many other stores. You can also order them right here (see the boxes at right) at competitive prices, just click on the links below for details, with no obligation to buy!
There are a few tricks and tips to get the labels to stay stuck to jars which will end up in a cold refrigerator and often exposed to moisture.
Other tips: labels printed on Laser printers are more waterproof than those printed on most ink jet printers. If your smudge, cover them with a piece of clear adhesive tape (clear packaging tape works well) will seal the labels under a waterproof cover.
These square label templates (Avery 6572, "White permanent multipurpose labels") are for both inkjet and/or laser printers)
I'm adding more labels daily, so stop back or email me if there is a size or type you need.
When you click the link, your browser downloads the file. Note: every browser is different, most like Chrome just download the file and you will see it in the bottom left corner of your screen. That may not be obvious! You then click on the downloaded file to open it in your document editor so you can customize. That's why it is a doc file and not a PDF (PDF's are not editable!)
