Jar Labels


Step Up Your Product Packaging With Bold and Vibrant Jar Labels

These custom labels for jars are excellent for your small business, product test marketing, or brand corporate gifts. Personalize every detail, from shape and size that fits your container to container to how the colors appear against the light.


Design jar labels in square, rectangle, circle, or oval sizes. Other fun shapes such as starburst and hexagon are also available. Choose from waterproof and oil-resistant materials that last in refrigerators.

How to Stand Out With Your Personalized Jar Labels


Print in a shape that calls attention to your product. Create a jar label that helps customers identify your product. Make sure the height and width fit the front of your container. You can create a wraparound label or design the front and back labels separately. Measure the dimensions of your package to ensure the shape fits on either side. 

Make sure that the size can fit all the required information for food labels. Refer to the infographic below for the 5 main elements in a food packaging label:

      1. Statement of identity 
      2. Net weight 
      3. Manufacturer’s address 
      4. Nutrition facts 
      5. Ingredients list
      6. Nutrition Facts

Note that single-ingredient food items like honey do not require an ingredients list on the label. However, if your fruit-based item includes other ingredients, then that list will need to be included.


Select a material and coating that complements your chosen colors and typography. You can create a design to match your specs or choose specs that will match your label’s look. Go for a gloss or high-gloss UV coating for a brightly colored label.  

 Matte is more suitable for minimalist or typography-based designs. Perfect for jar labels that have special heating or storage instructions. 

 Your choice of material will depend on how your product will be stored: 

  • 4 mil. white vinyl high-gloss is recommended for labels that will be exposed outdoors  
  • BOPP variations are used on products that are stored in refrigerators and exposed to oil and moisture. 
  • Textured materials are normally seen on wine bottles and other items that will be stored in a cool place.


Inspirational Ideas and Marketing Tips for Your Custom Jar Labels

Be sure to have all the required information ready before designing your jar label. The list above shows the basic requirements, but you can also check the FDA’s food labeling guide for more information. Once you have completed and verified the label’s content, you can proceed with these steps: 

  • Refer to your brand guidelines or other collaterals to create a consistent look among your products. 
  • Play around with typography for the product name. 
  • Use white space to manage the flow of information. 
  • Balance the text with helpful visual elements.

Jar Labels FAQs


What is the minimum order quantity for custom jar labels? 

You can order at least 25 pieces of cut-to-size jar labels and a minimum of 250 rolls. Note that you spend less per piece with higher quantity orders. For example, 1,000 roll name labels cost 18¢ each but 250 would cost 73¢25 cut-to-size labels costs 68¢ each while 250 pieces would cost 15¢ per piece.  


Can I print more than one design on a roll? 

No, you can only upload one design for each roll order. To order more than one design, you can input one (1) order per calculator. Contact our customer service for more information at 888-888-4211 or send a message via Live Chat. 


Which label materials are waterproof? 

The 4 mil. white vinyl and all BOPP options are waterproof. The textured materials are water-resistant in an ice bucket for up to 4 hours. 


What is the best finish for the jar labels? 

Your choice of lamination will depend on the intention and overall effect of your design: 

  • Gloss has a mirror-like shine that makes colors appear brighter from afar. 
  • Matte has a non-reflective finish that gives a natural look to your jar. Suitable for organic products or items promoting green living. 
  • High-gloss UV gives the highest shine and most protection against external elements

Do you require a bleed for my uploaded label file?  

Yes. Your file should have the proper bleed set upon submission. The background of your artwork should extend beyond the trim line of 1/8 of an inch. The bleed ensures that the ink on the edge of the page is still printed and seen, even after being trimmed or cut. Below is an example of how the artwork will look with the bleed applied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly as i designed it The print was exactly as i designed it. The only thing was that i didn't realize they would add a small white border on the outer edge of the design. I would have preferred if it went to the cut line no border.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Spice Jar Labels I am working to start a new BBQ Supply Company and plan on selling BBQ Rubs. I ordered 2 different preliminary sets of labels for two of my products. The entire order process was fast and easy. I particularly liked the way that my submitted graphics were turned into proofs and went to me for approval before the printing occurred. The labels that I received are going to work great for me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Packaging was subpar When we received these labels the boxes were overfull and as soon as I opened one labels came spilling out, they also packaged 2 different labels together and they were all mixed up.
