Giveaway: Fabric Labels from Emily Press


I will confess right now that I’m something of a imperfect jar labeler. I am meticulous about getting labels on to my jars the moment they are cool and clean, but those labels often consist of a scrawl across the lid of the jar with a Sharpie. In my more careful moments, I cut lengths of green painters’ tape and scribble the name and date on the preserve.

These labels serve my purpose well enough, but they’re not nearly nice enough for those times when I want to share my preserves with neighbors or tuck a few jars into gift baskets or boxes.


Recently, the nice folks from Emily Press Labels reached out to see if I might like to try their fabric canning labels on my mason jars. These beautifully printed, sturdy labels are exactly what I need to elevate my packaging game.

These sweet oval labels come in a variety of colors and designs. Each set comes with 36 labels and you can have them made so that they all the same thing, or you can designate two different names and styles.


I opted to have mine made so that they displayed the names of two my favorite preserves for gift giving. Thought I’m still out on the road right now, I’m hoping that I’ll be able to get a few more tomatoes when I get home, so that I can make up some more tomato jam and put these labels to work.

Thanks to the folks at Emily Press, three of my blog readers will get a chance to try out some labels as well. I’m giving away three $30 vouchers, good for anything on the Emily Press website (though I think you all should make sure to check out the fabric canning labels!). Use the widget below to enter!

    Well that’s cool! I’d definitely use them to label jars for gifts. My standard labeling now is sharpie writing on the lid.

    I currently just use a sharp on the top of my lids. These labels would make my jars fancy!

    Considering I recently made five gallons of salsa that I plan to give away as holiday gifts, I could really use some of these labels! 🙂

    They are a lot nicer than my writing.

    I’d do just what you’re doing. Decide what preserves etc I may want to give away and only make labels with that name on it. If I can get blank ones with maybe my name around the edge I’d do that too, I have good handwriting so I wouldn’t mind writing the product’s name on the label.

    I would love love love to have these for my specialty jams such as tomato jams

    I would definitely use them on gifts. I fall into the sharpie on the list category for my own stuff

    I was JUST thinking about looking into this kind of service!

    How cute these are!

    Jennifer says:

    I love the idea of using these to dress up gifts! I’m typically a “sharpie on the lid” labeler, and these are so much cuter than my handwriting.

    Julia in Byron says:

    Sharpie on the lid, then cover it up later with a cute round label when gifting. The fabric ones look terrific.

    Bethany Kocher says:

    I am pretty good about putting an o.k. looking label on my jars, but I hand write them and my writing is terrible. I think I am the only one that can make out what I wrote half the time. These labels would be great for those jams I make consistently as gifts. We could also use them for our honey jars (we keep bees) that we gift to friends and family.

    SusanE says:

    I love that they can be used for more than just jars. I can’t wait to make apple and pear sauce and use the labels for that.

    Marion says:

    Did a lot of canning with my daughter and son this year; would like to use these great looking labels to identify what we have accomplished. It was a great time and these labels will make the jars look even better. I’m still making the first jam that I made in your canning class. Thanks!

    Lauren E says:

    I, too, use painter’s tape or a sharpie scrawl, so the labels would be a welcome addition to my canning toolkit!

    So lovely!! I just started canning this year and this blog has quickly become my go-to for ideas. I’m excited to give canned gifts this year, and would use the labels to make special homemade salsas, chutneys, and sauces even sweeter.

    I kind of want to use them to label stuff in my pantry, although yes, they would be excellent for giving homemade jams away, too.
