They make a number of different label options that are appropriate for home canners. You can get their classic canning jar labels, which come in 20 different designs (you enter the name, contents, and origin of the product when you place your order). Another option are the oval kitchen labels, which come in 32 whimsical designs and are shipped in a charming tin box.

If you want something a bit smaller in size, consider the chef medallions, which are available in 64 (!) different designs. They come 20 to a small silver tin and would be the perfect thing for tiny jars of preserves destined for holiday giving. All these labels are in the $25-30 price range per set.

  • What a wonderfully beautiful website and great give away!The chef medallions with the bee hive are gorgeous. Those are my pick.

  • These are absolutely lovely! Thanks for sharing the site. I think I would choose either garden pickles or strawberry jam… Both are to be Christmas gifts this year!

  • The blueberry ones would be awesome for the 10lbs of blueberries currently occupying my freezer.

  • Different kinds of pickle labels!! I have some genetic thing that forces me to turn all cucumbers into pickles. The house reeks of vinegar and herbs, it’s a lovely thing πŸ˜‰

  • A cucumber with a jalapeΓ±o pepper next to it. I love spicy pickles and I think that would be the cutest label.

  • Maybe a custom design with cows and goats as I make feta cheese and put it in jars of olive oil and herbs, very tasty

  • We pickle everything from ginger to seaweed so a country garden design with the ocean in the background would fit us perfectly.

  • I’ve started making preserves to give away to family at the holidays and those medallions would be perfect for the mini jars!

  • I love to cook and bake equally so it’s hard to choose if I like the one with the stock pot or the cupcake one. πŸ™‚ Thanks for the giveaway contest !!

  • Very hard to chose – I love the berries and the brown hen, but I think my favorite is the fox branch rectangle. However, my really perfect design would have my sheep in it.

  • I love the designs! But for my own, I would love something with a salsa theme for my salsa or jalapeno for pickled jalapenos. But the blueberry one inspires me!!!

  • They are all very pretty. Since I do canning, I will choose the classic canning jar label. I hope I win!

  • Adore these labels! In fact adore his entire line!!
    I’m pickler so each year my mother and sister and I pull out the jars, pick the cukes till our fingers hurt and put up my Great Grandma’s Sweet Chunk Pickles.
    I would love to adorn our jars with his Garden Pickle design.

  • it would have to be the fox or the acorn — clearly I am in an autumnal mood!
    Then again its pretty hard to choose
    I have some of Felix’ calling cards and love them

  • These are lovely. It would be hard to choose. I particularly like the brown hen. But as for a custom design, I would like something with a sheep in it as I’m also an avid knitter.

  • I love these labels! I think I would want a mix of something spring (maybe berries of some sort?) and something fall (pumpkins of course!). I love both of those seasons and have just recently found a passion for canning thanks to your site!

  • Each time I scroll through the designs, I find a new favorite! The bee is lovely, so is the beehive…and the tulip bowl…and the blueberry box…and..and..and…*sigh* I love them all!!

  • I would have a hard time choosing between the goat and the adorable black lab balancing a cookie on his nose! (My black lab does that too!)

  • They’re so beautiful…I love the ones with the garden & wheelbarrow & farm scene since they’re not specific for a certain type of produce and would be appropriate for many of my canned goodies. I’m also drawn to the chicken & rooster ones! Great giveaway!

  • Oh man, they’re all so beautiful, how can you chose! But I like the blue crab, because I’m from Maryland – although I’m certainly not canning crab. πŸ™‚

  • I too love the garden & wheelbarrow or farm scene. They are more generic and can be used for any canned good. Just found your website. I am a first time canner just this week and I am thrilled to read your tips and tricks! THANK YOU!

  • That is a hard decision! Black rooster, heart flowers, or the oak branch. They are all so nice. But I would probably choose the blooming artichoke/thistle.

  • I love the red hen! Unfortunately, I do too much canning to make this worthwhile, but there are a few things I can that I keep for myself and my family. I would definitely use these labels on those items.

  • I would love a label with several fruits on it, good for all kinds of jam. How can anyone pick a favorite label? I want them all! Now I know what to ask for for Christmas.

  • I love the chef’s medallions! The one with the bee on it would be so perfect for my dad, who always gives away jars of his bee’s honey during the holidays. I’m totally enthralled by the mushroom one and the eggplant one. I guess I have to make eggplant caponata for canning now.

  • These are so pretty! I would adorn everything with these labels. I like the ‘From the kitchen of…’ with a blank space so you can write in what’s in it.

  • These canning labels are perfect! I would love to have some with a vintage look to them that say “made with love from the Frasier family.”

  • Ooh! I love the Roasted Bird Oval Labels – perfect for “Mrs. G’s Hot Meat Rub.” Then I think a coordinating bumper sticker is in order: I RUB MY MEAT. HONK IF YOU RUB YOURS.

  • I love these labels! I have always wanted to decorate my canning labels with beautiful illustrations like these!

  • These are exquisite! It would be very difficult to choose, but something for peach jam or blackberry jam (although I didn’t see a blackberry label).

  • Just beautiful. They remind me of Sara Midda’s illustrations from her book, ‘In And Out Of The Garden.’
    Especially the container of strawberry plants. I’d love to have the small oval labels, ‘From the Kitchen of…’

  • I love all the labels!!! But if I had to choose one design I’d go with the Cherries as my kitchen is filled with chicks n cherries <3

  • These are lovely. As I am in Hawaii, I would love labels featuring tropical fruits too, like guava and pineapple. Thanks for yet another great giveaway!

  • Labels featuring different berries, since I make a lot of jam for gifts. These really are old-fashioned, in the best way. Thanks for the chance to win.

  • I have these return address labels and I adore them! I would love a canning label with figs; I love figs and they seem to come and go so quickly each year.

  • my choice would be kumquats – I alway make kumquat marmalade and everyone asks what king of citrus it is.

  • These are wonderful! Since I can from my raised garden beds. A picture if a raised garden bed with a planter sign that says made with love, would be a welcome addition to the can goods I give to friends and family.

  • Fox branch canning label! These illustrations are so beautiful! I like the foxy label so I can gift my preserves to all my fox hunting friends.

  • Icelandia in the chef’s medallions…definitely! But I could be persuaded by Sleeping In in the personalized oval kitchen labels.

  • All the designs are beautiful. Sure hope a final selection is not required today – because I really like the rooster, the bowl of fruit, the strawberries, the mushrooms, and could not make a decision at the moment!

  • I like the classic labels for canning, but may adapt them for my dark brown Kombucha Brew bottles. I would like it to say “Made with excellence by Kathleen.”

  • These labels are beautiful. I love the bee and the bee hive designs. But I love the red cardinal and peacock, too.

  • I love anything with a hen or a chicken on it. I also would love to see a checkered label you could tie on to the jar with twine

  • These are so pretty, I would have a hard time actually using them! But I would love to have some chef medallions with the bee hive, or strawberries – to use on honey or jam to giveaway at Christmas. What a great giveaway!

  • I like the little chef’s medallions, but I’d have a hard time choosing a design…maybe the macarons?

  • How adorable! I suppose I would go with something g more generic like From the Kitchen of… I could use that for everything I make.

  • They are so beautiful. I’d have to think for a while what would be the perfect label for me. This is the type of thing I sweat over! πŸ™‚

  • So many charmin labels… it is so hard to choose…I’d pick a floral design so that I could use it for jams or pickles.

  • These are very nice – pretty without being too sweet or flowery. But I’m still looking for nice blank labels that I can write on – somehow pre-printed labeling does not seem to go with small-batch canning.

  • I’m absolutely torn between the chef medallions in the strawberry design or the blueberry design–they’re both just so beautiful and cute! πŸ˜€ I wonder if I could get the “Eat Well” space made blank so I can write in the preserve in the jar on that spot…

  • I’d like pretty much anything that wasn’t specific so I could use it for anything. They’re all so cute I’d probably go overboard and buy everything!

  • I would go with the adorable beehive to jar the honey from our hive, or maybe the strawberry for my batch of jam this year.

  • I have been looking for some labels, these are beautiful. My favorite are the ones with the apple tree.

  • I am in love with the chef labels — so classy. I am in love with the fruit prints — either the cherry or the blueberries.

  • Oh my — those are so gorgeous! I looked over the designs on his website, and some are so whimsical: a baby riding a tuna? Really? That’s hysterical. I think that my favorites are the sleeping fox and the peach tree. I have been using leftover children’s stickers for labels. My kids got big fast and left me with a stash of things, so I’ve been writing things on dinosaurs and figures from candy land, etc., and it’s fun. Based on what I’ve liked best, I’d say that my perfect design would be a blue morpho butterfly. Or a luna moth. I had a set of butterfly stickers and I really loved them on my jars of preserves. The colors marry so nicely.
