These free canning labels for jars will put that special finishing touch on those jams, pickles, veggies, and fruits that you've worked so hard to put up. Since they're free, you can print off as many as you'd like until you find just the right one. If you're giving canned goods away as a gift, then these free canning labels will make them look presentable and all wrapped up while still showcasing the actual jar. You can further jazz up your gift by using a free gift tag or even including your canning recipe on a printable recipe card.

There are all types of free canning labels here for your jar lids, canning jars, or as a hang tag around the lid. They come in all different kinds of styles as well—vintage, traditional, modern, and everything in between. Not only are these free canning labels pretty but they're also quite functional letting the recipient know what's in the jar, when it was canned, and who did the canning.

These free canning labels print very nicely on Avery 5293 (to top regular mouth jar lids), Avery 5294 (wide mouth lids), or Avery 8163 (rectangular for the side of the jar) labels. They also will work great on sticker paper or a full-page label that you can then cut out after printing. If you don't have the funds to buy labels, print out these free canning labels on cardstock and glue or tape to the lid. They'll still look great!
